In brief: No

If we are talking about a total knee replacement, the size of the implants is determined by your anatomy, ie the size of the bone and dimensions of the soft tissue.
In simple terms, the size of the metal and plastic inserted is determined by your anatomy. Trying to put in larger parts than what your body can accept will result in stiffness, pain, and dysfunction.

In brief: Limited.

Limited increase in lengthening is possible due to limitation of stretching of the soft tissue structures.
