Any Surgery or Injection to Grow Taller (Increase Height)?

Postby plutology » Fri, 15 Feb 2008 6:32 pm

hi all,



please kindly tell me is there any surgery or injection that can help to grow taller (height)?

I have been searching for one.

I am 23 years old, only 165cm, i would like to have 5cm-10cm taller than now.


Anyone can seriously help me?

surgery by an orthopedic surgeon... called illizarov, thats the only one i know although there's another name but same procedure.

not sure which surgeon in SG does it though...

check with them too if there is any latest technique... :wink:

Pluto: wow, if there's any injection I dont mind trying out too...I'm only 158.5cm!! 165cm is good for a gal's ht but if guy den I can understand y u wana do it. u can try to do more stretching....it works but results r quite slow. I only grew abt 2cm after stretching for quite some time. Well, better den nth right? hehehhe.

You might do some research on HGH (Human Growth Hormone).

there's no lotion portion to make you taller. the only way is surgery. the surgery is not easy and only available in certain country, i think some eastern european country. you will need a lot of physio after the surgery.

since you are only 23 years old and still got growth in you, one thing you could try is playing basketball, and i mean really play basketball. it has been known that playing basketball will make you taller. by how much or does it work, i dont know.

(btw, i am 182cm!)
