Surgical extension of the legs

Ask a question


Leg lengthening is a cosmetic procedure designed to give patients a few extra inches of height. It was originally intended to correct childhood leg length abnormalities and to aid victims of dwarfism. Recently, physicians have been implementing the surgery to add height for individuals of Constitutional Short Stature (those who are in the bottom fifth percentile of height in their region and display no deformities common with dwarfism).
