Height Increase Before and After

Limbs Lengthening

Not all people are satisfied with their height. But this problem can be corrected. Today there is a unique cosmetic procedure called the limb lengthening, or height increase. This process is applied to reduce the disproportion of legs that many children may have. Sometimes it happens that babies are born with the different leg lengths. The height increase is also effective when we talk about different treatments of dwarfism.

So how does it work? It is approved that bones can develop after being cut off. Distracting the limbs is a very serious and careful process. First, the surgeon cuts off a bone and then pulls both pieces apart. Osteonenesis occurs and the limbs get lengthened by fifteen to a hundred per cent.

A Long Process of a Bone Development

Height increase, in particular, limb lengthening is not a universal process with only one way of performing it. It has numerous variants, and your surgeon will choose one type that will be perfect just for you. During this procedure professionals use special tools that fix limbs externally and allow lengthening them.

This kind of surgeries is performed under the general anesthesia. The surgeon makes small incisions and then uses a special a special apparatus named for doctor Ilizarov, a Russian surgeon who invented this tool for the process of height increase. Before and after pictures show that this surgery is very effective. The defect of having legs with different lengths is very serious, and it brings not only the cosmetic discomfort, but also a number of obvious problems for other parts of the body.

The surgery takes time even less than one hour. But the meaning of this process is to apply the external fixator Ilizarov frames that start to work in approximately five days. The surgeon adjusts nuts in the Ilizarov apparatus, and this means the process of height increase is started. Of course, it doesn’t mean that you can change the length of your limbs endlessly. This process is limited. The maximum length is 7-9 cm, but generally it about 6-7 cm. It is a rather long time period, too. Height increase may take up to one year, and the patient should stay at a hospital for all this time.
