Hi,

If I get you right, what you mean is nobody will notice you have longer legs, but they will rather notice you have a shorter sitting height?
¿Is this what you mean? I feel most people slouch when sitting so if you keep a good posture it will be good for your back, and it will keep you in line with most people around you even if they have taller sitting heights.

¿ How do you feel about your arms to body ratio?
Yes exactly. For example, i have a few friends that are the same height as me(my new height). But when we sit down their sitting height is clearly higher than mine. I know about it and think about it so of course i also notice it. I dont know if they notice it though, but it would not surprise me.

Regarding proportions: I have been in the locker room many times together with other guys and noone has mention anything about my legs despite having barely any cloths on.


My arm to body ratio is very good. I was lucky there. But i think body height to sitting height ratio is more important.

it seems like you did all 8cm on femurs. did u have a big torso or short legs to begin with (for ur height). if not than i suppose doing 3 inches solely on femurs would make ur tibs look so much smaller and ur torso aswell. did people point that out to you or were they oblivious to it. im just curious because i did ll too and feel the disproportions.

I had a relatively large torso pre LL. My relative wingspan was slightly large at about 5'10 (my original height was 5'9). I think post LL my proportions here look much better. Longish legs relative to torso is IMO an attractive trait. 

My pre LL tibia / femur ratio was .79, or just within the normal range. Post LL my tibias definitely look small relative to my femurs but I'm unbothered by it. I haven't gotten any comments from anyone. Outside of the LL community I don't think society pays close attention to femur/ tibia proportions.

I go 7 even i cut my legs and trow away, im not get all this now because of 3 cm , sory mate im stronger than that

this isnt a simple cosmetic surgery. you're not getting your nose done. this is a major leg surgery, your mind might be strong but your legs arent as strong as your mind, you should have waited at least a year!
hope everything will turn out to be OK for you pal, but i have serious concerns about your doctor. when you already have exceeded the safe limits, he shouldnt have let you done this, didnt he inform you that you should at least wait a year to achive these numbers?
why the heck he lets you?

Hello everyone , today i move into hotel from the hospital and for now i canot wallk or stand up any more , my legs start swollen  and because of that i canot even stand up on my legs any more , when i do femur 5 day after i wallk outside the hospital to vip combi taxi , today 7 days after tibia , special emergency combi drive me into leg possition into hotel because i canot stand up , wtf going on before 2 days im able to wallk slowly but now is not possible, who say tibia LON is easy that femur he lie , my legs is complete useless  now

The reason to this, Meck, is because you want to rush the procedures. You should’ve known that this surgery is one that has one of the longest recovery time. You just did 10cm, and you didnt even let the recovery start for the femurs after achieving so much and you jumped into the next surgery. You couldn’t have expected that it was gonna be as simple as starting fresh, like it was with the femurs. I really believe the best option was to wait some months. You should never hurry this surgery or everything will come falling down. I don’t know what to suggest now, since you already went under the second surgery. I believe 3cm will be as far as you’ll be able to take your tibias at this moment. All the soft tissues are already stretched and under pressure from the femur lengthening. These soft tissue are also connected to the tibia, so it’s not like you can lengthen much more. If you would have waited, you would have been able to lengthen more than you’re currently capable of at the moment, and with less risks of complications. Best of luck! Hope you pull it through!

Update: Regressed a bit these past few days.

Overworked my glutes and hips with too many side leg raise exercises and strained my hip abductor muscles. Muscle is sore and weak now to the point where I'm waddling a bit more again.

Going to rest for the next few days and recover. Going forward I'll listen to my body more and do exercises in moderation.

I have a meeting next month in Uniklinik Friedrichsheim in Frankfurt Germany.
I heared that they can do femur limb lengthening up to 8cm for 20.000 Euros.

Let's see what informations i get from Dr. Adolf

Any news on that?

Hi Rei,
Thank you for your diary. In your first post you mentioned that you already regret getting this surgery. What are your thoughts now? Do you still regret it? Also, do you have any side effects currently (ballerina etc.)?

Yeah the very first days and going back home only two days after the surgery, was awful but only after 5 days from the surgery i was already really fine.

Right now i have zero side effects since like 3 months, my gait is the same before the surgery and my ROM is the same to, i can squat and do every kind of movement; only right now i’m back using the walker cause i removed my right frame like 6 days ago, but dr Pili told me i can walk unained, i’m just being overly cautious cause i’m scared
