@scarface 170/168 being short is subjective to your benchmark/life/environment. I'm around 168 now, but if I went from 5cm less to my current height I would probably be alot more content than I am now. No hard feelings, I wanted to clarify because a 5'4 or below hearing 168 is short can be destructive, 168 could well be average in many regions.
It can be destructive, the thing is you NEED to be mentally strong enough to accept it and move on instead of coping. 5'6 is the most someone can reach, fine, let's Play all the cards we have and focus on other things.

I'm around 169 and I live in India where the average is supposedly 5'5" and I feel like 70 - 80% of my people in relevant income and age group are taller than me, so I imagine the situation to be worse in western countries

lol wait what? Why would you be content 5 cm lesser than your height and you're still considering LL?

I think he meant if he was NATURALLY 163 and gained +5cm with LL he would be content with 168.

He is 168 now, and not content.

The action of doing LL can have a huge effect, even if the height after is still short. Doing the action helps mentally alot. That's why SOME 5'1 dudes do LL to 5'4 and are quite alright with life after. The fact they went thru the action of getting taller, helps the mental. paley and Rozbruch both mention this alot. even if it's legit a 3 cm gain, psychologically it can be enuf to cure neuroiss. Sometimes.

I doubt from my own unassessed priori judgement that it would make that much of a difference, and @OverrideYourGenetics has short arms as well and doesn't look bad at all proportionally. Also if the choice was to move from very short to closer to normal range or preserve proportions the choice is very clear to me.

I can't speak for anyone else just myself. Believe me I've contemplated what you've said and I'm not going to do quads until I do bi's first.

Sum time a man has to weigh whether they want proportions or staying short. I wud take shortish arms and 5'6 anyday  over being 5'2 4ever. U may disagree but u know best as u are living it

Well for me the arms would look noticeably short at 5'6, like hilariously short so I'm fine with just 2" on one segment of my legs for now and like I said if I wanted I could always do more but I can't do less. If I do quads I will definitely face problems when I'm older. I just don't believe that nothing will happen to my body after such a big surgery, it's literally changing your bio-mechanics, how can it not? I want to be active and do physical sports which quads will definitely hinder my ability to do so. I've seen the people who did quads and they do no run properly. What's the point of being taller if you're semi-disabled when you're 30/40/50? Might be a gamble some of you are willing to make but not me.

Yes this is exactly what I mean, the new height gain will give you a new perspective on life and to others a new perspective on you, no matter your starting height, obviously the more taller the more universally accepted you are, but maybe you dont need to be universally accepted, maybe only that additional 15% of the population that respect you more for your new height is enough to fuel your confidence and height wont be the main issue.

168 is average to above average in many asian/african/south american countries; it is kinda short if you want to surround yourself with europeans only, but you could be in your own bubble in europe of people from shorter countries and height wont be your main concern at all.

Just like your friend LittleWhiteMan I’ll be gone for quite a while but I’ll be back on here... could possibly just come on every now and then when I feel like I need some information... but yh give me 3-4 years maybe more maybe less and I’ll be back on here by doing the surgery, most likely on my femurs, 8cm goal... hopefully Uk £ rate won’t drop

Lol unlike some people I don’t think I’ll go on this forum to get more depressed about my height... I am currently in a good mood, got my whole life ahead of me, I’ll jus focus on my main dream and it’ll get me money too... if I give my work my 100% then I’ll get the money for it too... and then I’ll be back on here doing the surgery... there is no point in wasting time on this forum if your not doing any research from it ...

Become the best chef I can be, hopefully gain a Michelin star even... I’m Indian hence I’ll focus on Indian cuisine, and in the uk Indian restaurants are fairly popular also im only 19 years old so I got time. It all goes well I’ll hopefully become a successful chef and get the surgery done too... if all goes well I could even get the surgery done with a better surgeon, if I get good pay ...
