Answers for Your Questions
What is cosmetic limb lengthening and how many centimeters/inches can i grow?
Cosmetic limb lengthening is a procedure that allows you to increase your height. In this treatment, a surgeon cuts the bone in your thigh (femurs) or shin (tibias) and uses special devices to gradually separate the bones. This separation creates space for new bone to grow, helping you to become taller. If you have surgery on your femurs, you can grow 8-10 cm taller. If the surgery is on your tibias, you can grow by 5-7 cm. If you want to become even taller, you might need two surgeries: one on the femurs and another on the tibias. This way, you could grow by 15-17 cm in total. How much you'll grow depends on the method used and how your body responds to the process.
What's the typical recovery timeline for limb lengthening surgery?
After limb lengthening surgery, the recovery timeline varies based on the procedure and the bone lengthened. Typically, after one procedure and 6-8 cm of lengthening, you can expect to get back to your daily routine within 4 to 5 months after the surgery. Initially, you'll go through a lengthening phase, where your bones are extended at a rate of 1mm per day, resulting in 3 cm in 30 days, 6 cm in 60 days, and 9 cm in 90 days. Once the lengthening is complete and the desired height is achieved, the bone consolidation phase begins. During this time, you might need a walker or crutches for 2-8 weeks, gradually moving towards walking without help. Usually, it takes about 4-5 months after surgery to walk normally. After 6 months, you can continue most physical activities. Full recovery, including high-impact exercises, takes approximately 9-12 months depending on your healing speed.
Which techniques are used in limb lengthening?
There are a few commonly used methods for this procedure. The most advanced and effective options are internal methods such as Precice 2.2, which uses an internal nail for precise control of the lengthening rate. This internal approach is quite effective but can be costly. Another method is the LON technique, which uses both an internal nail and an external fixator. It's known for being both safe and more affordable. There are also methods like Ilizarov and Holyfix, which are fully external and require a longer post-operative recovery period.
