I can say standing at 179 i am content but of course not fully satisfied.

Like right there

Content:
1. a state of satisfaction.
"the greater part of the century was a time of content"

2. a member of the British House of Lords who votes for a particular motion.

Your creativity in making-up meaningless words is.....amusing. And you seem unable to make up your mind on anything either

Proof? This whole thread.

You have no credibility in the forum so why don't you go back to whatever mental institution you escaped from in Brazil.

Why would I? Cause the truth hurts you sooo bad? Can’t handle a little constructive criticism? I don’t expect you to cry this soon and tap out this early.

You don’t need to grow some bones to height up

You need to grow some balls and man up ;)

Says the butt hurt lunatic that makes 3 alt accounts of me. You made an ass of yourself when you fell for the monegal impersonator and you continue to do it with your lunatic ramblings. No sane doctor would operate a lunatic such as yourself. Your gonna have to go to a quack doctor in India. :D

There's nothing shameful about having mental problems as much as being short.

To make you understand, imagine me being 167cm. Do you know how many women that are 168cm-172cm? It makes a difference whether I'm 1-5cm shorter than her or same height or 1-5cm taller. 170cm tall girl would be physically looking down at me when talking to me whereas she wouldn't if I was 170cm/171cm. It can work the other way too, imagine me being 163-164cm, I'd be officially below average height of white female whereas technically I'm above average as 167cm.

At 164 cm you are not talking about "only 4 cm too short", that height is 10-15 cm below average depending on where you are. Of course if you were 164 you would be happier at 168, but would you be satisfied and fully content with your height? So much that the 4 cm difference warrants a huge difference in living quality? If the answer is "yes", then there you go, it's all not as bad as you paint it to be. You can either wear 3 cm lifts or do a 4 cm LL surgery with mediocre costs and mild risks, which will very likely not leave you crippled. Your problems can definitely be solved. If the answer is "no", then 4 cm are not "huge" or will decide your life's fate.

I meant to say that 163-164cm is 3-4cm shorter than my current height. As much as I despise my current height, I must admit that if I was 164cm then it'd be game over. Now at 167cm, the situation is like a shattered glass that is not yet broken. I'm 2" under male decent height (of 5'8").

And one more thing, I've been wearing lifts for years. It DOES HELP to mask my lack of height, but it DOES NOT SOLVE the problem. A 178cm guy can also wear lifts to get to 183cm.

Right, the 164 guy is just an example. But the principle still applies: If only 4 cm are really "a huge difference, a life changer" to you then that must mean your life would be turned around 180 degrees and change completely, if you were 171 instead of 167. When in reality, it's just a negligible height difference and the life of two random people who are 4 cm apart will not be extremely different.

Case in point, there are quite a lot of people of your "desired height" wishing to do LL. And there are some people who are at around 168 who say they decided not do LL or don't think about it because their lives are fine. So it's clearly not an objective, big difference between 171 and 167 but to your specific situation (which your mental state plays a huge part in) it is.

So if your "desired height" is all you want, go ahead and plan for your surgery. As I said, 4 cm can be done with relatively controllable risks and you should be fine. But don't think that your life and your physical appearance will be 100% better and different than it is now. It won't.

Height is complex because we have to talk about percentiles, location, culture, etc. A 4cm jump is much bigger for someone going from 164 to 168cm than someone going from 167 to 171cm. It is also basically negligible for a man to go from 150 to 155cm or 155 to 160cm if they're living in predominantly white countries, whereas the situation would change in some Southeast Asian countries. Likewise, to go from 190cm to 194cm would also be negligible; you'd already be taller than the vast majority of anyone who even looks at you - they would barely notice a difference.

While not quite a life changer, if I was 4cm, it'd make a good difference for me and I regret losing it to a fked up upbringing.

I still think the benefit of 4-5cm wouldn't outweight the loss of getting crippled as a martial artist.

Interesting read, though they do rely too much on American concepts of race:

This is anecdotal evidence and by no means something serious, but I was wondering if the poster who said most of your height comes from your mother could be right. All the people who are shorter than their fathers that I know of (including myself) have some pretty decently short mothers. Whereas I have friends with fathers around 170cm but their mothers were very close in height to the father (~166cm+) and they all grew to be taller than their fathers - with most reaching 180cm, give or take a couple centimeters.

It's probably just the genetic lottery, though.
