« on: August 22, 2019, 08:10:40 PM »

Hi guys,

I have lengthened my tibias in 2014 with Dr. Barinov going from 163.5 cm to 171.5 cm.
This year i want to lengthen my femurs with Dr. Betz.

Actual height: 171.5 cm
Target: 11 cm (182.5 cm)
Age: 32

Consultation date is 19th September 2019. Operation is planned for end of October/beginning of November (not confirmed by Dr. Betz yet).

I will keep you updated guys.

Hi,

it is 52 000 € for the operation and two weeks of stay in the clinic.
I will get this confirmed in the consultation though.

One thing is clear. You need to be ready to be ready to go trough this for about 1 year mate. It might take you even longer to recover from that, cause youre not the youngest anymore.
But its possible

Thanks mate for your comment. I understand that it will be difficult and it will take a lot of patience and willpower.

A good finnal outcome is consist of 30% of Dr. Betz's operation and 70% of your following commitments. And yes, it's true that this whole process of gaining a few cms is gonna take time longer than your expectation.

Yep it will take a long time, I‘m about 6 months post OP and 10 weeks consolidation and still on crutches. I did 10cm and it will
take me the rest of the year , until I‘ll be somehow normal again. I‘m pretty tired of everything, it feels like it wont end, but I try to stay positive

I completely threw away crutches like 4 months after operation, including walking, going upstairs/downstairs, squating. But I just go for 5.2cm. As for 10cm, it seems to take at least double the time to get that result.

I will try to ditch my crutch in 1,5 months, thats about 4months in consolidation and 8 months post OP. I think I should be walking without crutches or I hope so

So 8 months for 10 cm. That sounds good to me! Keep up the good work :)

So Dr. Betz charges 500 € for the consultation. X-Rays that will be done is included. I guess I have to pay directly after the consultation but we will see...

Is there any upper limit for internal femur..I read somewhere that some doc's allow only 7,5 but you mentioned 10 cm.

Thanks

Hello! First of all, I wish you good luck in this difficult way to achieving your dream.
But it’s hard for me to imagine how a man will look after lengthening his legs by 19 cm. For example, when I lengthen my legs in the photo by 10-11 cm, my torso and arms seem short. Only in clothes it was almost imperceptible.
Are you going to lengthen your arms after that?

Dr. Betz says you can go up to 12 cms with femurs. But i think technically there is even more possible. The limit is your body, your attitude towards proportions, pain and time restrictions.

Well I do not care much about proportions. But I will check in the mirror with every centimeter gained and can decide to stop anytime. No l will not lengthen arms.

Hi mate, its seems to me that Dr Betz and Dr Guichet are the best choice, but also high cost. Can you recommend any other good Dr but for half the price?

Ok thanks jfk.
But some doctors stop after max of 7.5 cm at one go on femur. Is it because of body limitations?

Dont be greedy man. Your center of gravity will bbe changed. I think 180 cm is the good one that you should consider

The more you lengthen, the more damage you do to your body. Some doctors limit the maximum amount as they say that more centimeters damages your body too much or because of proportion reasons. Some nails also have a maximum amount they can lengthen.

Hi,

well I did 8 cm with Dr. Barinov which cost me 20 000 € in total. I can not speak for other doctors as I did not experience first hand. But do your research on all doctors and get as much information as you can before you decide. Sometimes waiting and saving more money is the better option.

Thanks man. Yes I will see how my body feels, if I have difficult complications and probably also consider proportions if I look too strange...180 cm is absolut minimum though!
