if your measurements were correct you only would have the femur option,
the femur should always be larger than the tibia, never the opposite, at most as in my case and yours may have a value close to it.
at most you could do 2 segments 5cm+5cm or 7cm+4cm being femur and tibia.
within a standard proportion you could make femur up to 40cm (8cm)
and stay in the ratio 40cm-30cm.
I think your case you could not do an internal surgery because I'm not sure if there are menore intramedullary rods that 30cm, would probably have to have 25cm of rod for your case.
so I think it would have to be external stretching in the femur.

The longest bone in human body is femur, and to keep the natural appearance and proportions of the body is more logical. Thus your femur bone can be lengthened by 5-8 cm depending on your muscle flexibility and target height.

To provide food for your thought and help you make a better decision, here are the advantages and disadvantages of lengthening femur:


Lengthening the femur has the following advantages:

1. The upper leg has the ability of lengthening 1 cm more.
2. The risk of infection is lower
3. The healing ability of the bone in this part is higher

The disadvantages:

1. More pain than lower leg
2. Less mobility while recovering

Additionally, for women, it is aesthetically more pleasing and beautiful to have longer lower legs, while for men it looks better to have longer upper legs.

All info that I provided really depends on the patient and are possibilities, not rules.

There is also the time variable, I'm 26yo now.

If I do tibias, I can do it in 2019, however, if I do femurs, I need more time to save the money for internals, so I would end up doing it around 2020 or 2021...
