The Disadvantages of Leg Lengthening Surgery and Risks

Limb Lengthening SurgeryThe leg lengthening surgery has become, for more and more people, a solution for changing their appearance. Growing taller has become something of major necessity, hence the turning to these medical alteration methods.

However, there are certain disadvantages to this surgery and certain risks that the patient exposes himself/herself to during a surgery like this.

The risk of infection

The risk of infection after leg lengthening surgery has reached the percentage of 4%. This percentage is smaller than the one noted by the removal of tarsal coalition surgery, which is 25-50%. This happens due to the inability of the body to adapt itself to the new system, thus leading to rejection.


The big problem of this solution is the price that the given patient has to pay for this surgical intervention. Besides the surgery itself, the price will be higher because of the medications needed and the possible risks and infections.

The time involved

In order to benefit from the effects of the surgery, the patient must have a lot of patience. Besides the period spent in the hospital, he has to add up the time spent with the device built on the leg, plus the time with the cast. When deciding to lengthen the leg, the patient must be aware that he will not be able to use time as he used to, which is definitely a downside.

The pain

After the surgery itself, the patient has to put up with the pain of the legs. This may derive in other problems such as: acute insomnia and nervousness/ laziness. The pain, in most of the cases, can become a mental state, and in many cases the patient regretting having the surgery.

The risk of having a second surgery

If the body of the patient did not welcome well the change or if certain operations have not been done properly, there is the risk that the patient might need another surgery. Besides the effort of the body to heal itself again, this surgery takes other financial sacrifices and additional time spent healing.

Therefore, this is how many risks and disadvantages come with this kind of surgery. All of this can be avoided through a good combination between physical exercise, nutrition and sleep.

The spine and the process of growing

The spine is the structure that holds our body and it is formed by vertebrae. These vertebrae are different in shape, size and number and each of them form certain regions: cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacra, coccyx. Between each two vertebrae there is a disk containing a fibrous cartilage and a central nucleus. The spine has a whole series of functions: it helps maintain balance, mobility, head support; it keeps us straight and standing.

The length of the spine can be modified by working on the disks between the vertebrae which become bigger or smaller, thus lengthening the spine. With age, the spine becomes smaller, which is why we should know these things and keep it healthy and in shape through physical exercise.

Feet and the process of growing

Feet have the main purpose of supporting the body and the happening of walking. A food is made of the tarsal bones, metatarsal bones and phalanges. The modification of the foot can be made by lengthening/ stretching the bones. This can be done either through a painful and expensive surgery or through intense exercise.

Water – Vital for Growing Taller Naturally

water increase heightWater is the liquid that keeps the body in a good state. Either being consumed in its proper state or extracted from other elements, water is in charge of the well-being of our body and organism. Without water, our body would be confronted with severe digestive, respiratory and circulation problems.

The human body is 70% represented by water. Thus, a person that weights 60 kilograms is 41 kilograms water.

Water – prevents self-poisoning

Without water in our body, it would not be possible to eliminate the residual substances out of the body. Thus, we would poison ourselves with our own residues. Once toxin free, our body uses its energy to balance its immunity and determine cellular regeneration.

Water – prevents dehydration

Besides from being a cleaner for the body, water also helps the adjustment of the body. Without the minimum daily water consumption, our body gets to go into chronic dehydration. Most of the people do not consume the minimum quantities of water, and the liquids considered water substitutes are terribly harmful such as: coffee, sodas (coca-cola and not only) and alcohol.


Thirst is not a phenomenon that lacks logic. Thirst is an alert transmitted by our body when certain cells lack the necessary quantity of water. These cells let the brain know what they need, and the brain gives the sensation of thirst and it obliges us to drink water.

Thirst can camouflage as hunger between meals. It will go away as soon as you drink a glass of water.

Lack of water determines a series of conditions such as: asthma, allergies, constipation, vascular problems, menstrual problems etc. These conditions inevitably lead to slowing down the growing process. In order to grow, the body must be in a very good state, not to have conditions that affect energy and take it for something else and not allow it to be used in the plan of healthy development.
