Leg-Lengthening Surgeries in Siberia Ultimate Vanity Surgery
Leg lengthening surgery is sometimes performed on people to combat dwarfism but a clinic in Kurgan, Siberia is conducting leg lengthening surgeries. This ultimate vanity surgery is costly and painful. At the end of what can take nine months of pain, the patient can gain up to two inches of height.
To lengthen the limbs the bone is first broken.
When placed back together the fractured bones will fuse.
The limbs are increased in length by using the pins to keep the bones slightly apart so that tissue continues to grow to fill the gap, and over time, lengthens the bone. Complications, though, are not uncommon. They can range from bone infection and poor bone healing, uneven growth between the limbs, damage to blood vessels, muscle and bone, and nerve injury. Orthopedic surgeon Konstantin Novikov insists he only operates where there is genuine need.
