Cosmetic height increase (limb lengthening)
The International Centre of Anthropometrical Cosmetology and Correction offers a unique opportunity to increase your height and correct body proportions via limb lengthening surgery.
The technique of limb lengthening is based on the principles developed by Dr. Ilizarov. The height increasing methods employed by our center have been further modified by the renowned orthopedic surgeon from Volgograd, a distinguished inventor in the field, Dr. Mikhail Yegorov and his follower Dr.Alexander Barinov.
There are three stages in the limb lengthening procedure:
The operation is performed on both legs at the same time and has 3 stages.
1. Operation. During this time a special orthopedic device is fixed on both legs, then osteotomy (bone cut) is done, and bone fragments are fixed with the device.
2. Distraction. Gradual lengthening of the limb. It begins approximately 1 week after the surgery. The rate of distraction, i.e., the rate of extension is 0.75-1 mm per day and depends on individual endurance to the procedure by the patient. Thus, the period of distraction by 5 cm takes 50-70 days.
3. Consolidation (fixation). At the end of distraction the period of fixation is started, which lasts approximately twice as long as lengthening.
Rehabilitation period after LL surgery.
