This was discussed a while ago, but this website is constantly getting new members.

Doctors prefer to base safe lengthening measures based on the bone length. For the femurs, 30% additional is the max. However, over 20% and the bone regenerate quality usually starts to decrease. So 20% max for the femurs is often recommended.

Thank you for your feedback, AppleFanBoy. I completely agree with you on the first point. I believe I was just contemplating the idea of doing both segments, but I’ll most likely just gonna end up going through with one segment for the time being. I just honestly don’t feel comfortable at my height in parties and public places. I feel like everyone towers over me and that this is holding me back from being as comfortable and confident as I would like to be with my self image. Another reason being that my femur looks short compared to the rest of my body, so I’ll probably stick with femurs. I ended up cropping the head off, but now that you mention it I believe it would have been better just to blur my face. I’ll try to upload a new version of the images later.

Hey there.

I was wondering what the safe limit for femur lengthening is, just like for tibia it's 5 cm, any ideas?

but private health care for ppl who can afford it is a different question. Indian private hospitals is just capitalism. theyll rip you off financially. but if u can pay ur treated like a king and treated by the best doctors.

That happens in Greece too.

But a much better country with a far better healthcare system than India too. A definitely better place to do LL compared to third world countries.

I think ur talking about government hospitals. ya greece government hospitals are MUCH MUCH better all right! but private health care for ppl who can afford it is a different question. Indian private hospitals is just capitalism. theyll rip you off financially. but if u can pay ur treated like a king and treated by the best doctors. the competition to become a doctor is steeeeep. 'some' bad doctors make it by bribing universities but u can always tell the bad apples from good ones.

sarin and co are not good examples of good Indian health care.

sorry I wrote this if it was impolite. I was in bad mood and felt upset that someone said India means disaster. anyway any one can have any opinion,  I should not get upset.

It's ok. It's true tho, you're absolutely right. Even first world countries have shiettyy   doctors. I will judge doctor by their performance not their residence

greece with its "ever growing economy" and young & skilled population is obviously much better option.

neighbouring countries like france and germany and UK which boasts of legend doctors like guichet & betz are also great options. Guichet is allowed to practice in the honorary NHS the most disciplined health care system in the world! what more can one ask?

singapore is a well developed country and even with its small population has produced legend doctors like dr Singh.

other countries like Japan, norway and sweden have advanced health care systems, developed economies and young skilled enthusiastic population and producing world class medical experts every year. Nothing can go wrong in these countries. there is no way these countries would allow any malpractice.
Guichet is a butcher. Betz is veey expensive and has an obsolete nail.
Other from that, I agree with all the other you said.
But greece is much more expensive than India. But a much better country with a far better healthcare system than India too. A definitely better place to do LL compared to third world countries.

Yeah. If you want to do LL, the safest thing to do I think is tibia lengthening with TSF for 5cm or so.

Maybe this will get safer in a few years or the soft tissues problems will be fixed to the point where we don't need to give up athleticism.
With only 5cm and tsf on tibias it is almost impossible to have soft tissue issues.
Athletic abilities will be a little reduced due to changes in feet ratio but nothing important.
The only problems is that 5cm are (or were) not enough for most of them but if you are ok with that lengthening, things are very safe, I can guarantee that.

Lol!
If you are 5'5 or so and below, LLS is probably the way to go (that's why I shared the video with Brendan Snob making fun of 5'3 people who do the surgery). Once you go higher in height, the risks/drawbacks - rewards balance starts to shift. I'm a Mountain Biker, if I do the surgery I'll be a 178cm grandpa riding a bike. When I reach 45 how I'll do that? Will do downhill with the wheelchair?
When/If I reach 70 (regardless of sports; just walking)? Don't want to even think about it.
Whereas you can do bodybuilding training only for your upper body and don't work out your weak, worn-down chicken legs.

Maybe you got lucky, or just don't want to admit that you are not sure if it was a wise decision, and why you're still here if you are happy anyway?
You're not short anymore.

2Lol!

Guichet was considered a good/competent doctor until a few years ago and look what happened
http://www.limblengtheningforum.com/index.php?topic=3560.0
And that Indian guy who trusted him
http://www.limblengtheningforum.com/index.php?topic=64405.0
Go tell to the Indian guy's parents that above.

And many more cases, crippled, grandpa walking, constant pain, additional $urgerie$, etc that we just haven't heard of and never will.
Even when people get 'milder' bad outcomes they are ashamed and don't want to admit it was a sh*t decision. After 20 years they certainly will, but not here.
I am here mainly to read some experiences with stryde as maybe one time I'll do a second LL if I have money.
And to give some advice to the other people whonwant to do LL or doing it right now. Also to encourage the latter.
I am very happy with my LL and satisfacted with my height although I would have need another 2 inches to see myself completely as I want.

As for Guichet, that man is a crook. He must be punished for what he did to many LLers. He must be the most expensive butcher for LL im the world.
Any LLer should avoid him and his barbaric tactics and nail at all costs.
Thats why I always say how important is a good doctor to have a great result.
