This guy who wishes to remain anonymous says that this surgery was life changing.
He chose to have 3 inches added to his length. Basically the surgeon cuts your bones and inserts a rod in each leg. Each day a screw is turned and up to 1 mm of length is added. The bone fills in and eventually you add height.
This seems to be for people who have struggled with height issues all their life and are insecure about it for one reason or another.
The video mentions 8th grade. I was short in 8th grade and after that my height took off. I wonder if I could get my legs shortened so that I don't bump my head on stuff anymore!
