I mean the guy on the far right. He has exceptionally long tibiae and a short torso.

Sorry, yes I meant to write right instead of left. My mistake.

I think the first thing people would notice about him are his arms. A few cms on his arms and he would just be a leggy guy, instead of a goofy looking t-rex.

LOL is that who I think it is?
But seriously, I find apotheosis' proportions not too bad, especially when obscured by everyday clothing. If he walked by, I probably wouldn't think twice about his proportions (even being hyperfocused on those details like I am). Perhaps if he can hide his proportions under his clothes without it looking ridiculous, can't the rest of of us? Does it really matter what you like like with your briefs pulled up to your crotch? Assuming he also did humurous lengthening (amount unknown), I think it looks pretty near natural. Perhaps without it he wouldn't. This is just my opinion, feel free to expand on anything I've said (or refute).

Yep.



Definitely not bad for 20CM of lengthening. His head is noticeably too small though, but that doesn't matter to most people. Lots of naturally tall people have tiny heads. It looks bad, but it's better than being short.

Does anyone know where I can read diary of people who go close to 20cm. I want to see what effects it has on their body after leg lengthening.

I was under the impression 20cm was impossible.

I recommend looking around the old forum for diaries of people who go close to 20cm. From memory, I recall apotheosis and Greekster doing a considerable amount. Since I cannot answer from experience, I will tell you that many of the "successful," large lengthenings are with dr betz. He understands the "get tall or die" mindset many people have, and that's why he allows such large lengthening. In one of his replies on this forum he said that why go through all the pain for a small 5cm? I have to agree with him. To make a significant change you have to atleast go three inches(in femurs that is Tibias you probably should never go over 6cm because of the complication rate). When you hit four, that's when things start to become interesting. Very little doctors allow patients to go that far, and it's for good reason. The mechanics of walking and your leg fundamentally change with the newly introduced tibia to femur proportion. How it effects walking, I don't exactly know, but again, I wouldn't know from any first hand experience.

Do you think that 10 cm (5 + 5) is considered extreme and doctors would not allow it ?

I don't think that's extreme at all, if anything it's a little conservative for two lengthenings. I believe that the Paley institute allows lengthening up to 13 cm on both segments combined, and he is a conservative Doctor. But, in the end, it really depends on how far you want to go and weighing the risk/reward from there.

I disagree. 5 centimetres can make an enormous difference for one's mental well-being, especially when you are in an height range where many people lay in. Going from 175 to 180 is "only" 5 cm, but it will make you taller, or as tall, as millions of people on the planet. Shorter lengthening will make recovery and healing easier, which you will definitely be thankful for in the long range. I don't know it, but I assume that 20 years after the operation, having lengthened 5 cm will result in a lot less health problems than having lengthened 15 cm.

Being 5 cm taller than I am now wouldn't make me the happiest person on the planet, but I would probably be at peace with my body for good.

Nice pics in this thread, with crap discussion.

Half Iranian half Japanese baseball pitcher Yu Darvish is 6'5" with short arms.



I think you mean Japanese LLer Yu Darvish. Look at his head and arms. Too small for his leg length and impossible to happen in nature. /sarcasm
