I don't think any doctors have tried it. Height increasing surgery leads to super brittle bones, and never heard of the reverse being performed.

A friend can do this for you, but it involves a hacksaw and a lot of alcohol. And duct tape. :twisted:

I like both short and tall women and men (I'm about five foot nine). The woman that use to be our neighbour is kind of short. One of the janitors at my therapist's office is really short. He is cute too even if he is a little young for my tastes. The guy that is usally the cashier at the liquor store over there is tall. I think I like my height.

I haven't heard of such a surgery, though I'm not the most informed and well studied person on such things.

For what it's worth, I'm 5'11 and so's Jennifer, and every once in a while I see women in public taller than me (both here in Washington and in Texas... oddly I swear it was more common in Texas though, I blame the limited ethnic diversity). Women who seem very definitely- though I'm not saying you can always tell :) - to have been born that way.

Just sayin'.

I think Silverfeather's method may also call for a wheelchair and a newfound affinity for long robes (or skirts, depending on how well you do it... or maybe those baggy red Japanese shrine pants).

I'm 5' 7" and the tallest person in my family. (By about 1-3 inches in most cases, though my aunt is only 4' 11")

Why am I taller than them? Because my nuclear family (mum, dad, and sis) is middle class; and, during the time my parents generation was growing up they were urban poor and malnourished. Height is a sign of health and wealth, do take that into account before you rent a Dremel tool.

The best way to feel beautiful is to turn your perceived liabilities into assets. Stand as tall and erect and proud as you can, wear the highest-heeled boots they'll sell to you, and make it look like you take pride in being statuesque. There is nothing more striking-looking than a tall elegant woman in hot-looking boots, baby!

Wow, once again you waltz in a thread and say what everyone else is trying to say in a stunningly concise way, and with an erotic undercurrent. O.O W!!

I've heard of surgery done like that, but not to that extent. There are some operations done where they remove part of your leg bones and connect the two disjointed bits with a brace untill they re-set. You can loose an inch or two that way, but that's all, and that's only in the legs.

When you're tall, you're pretty much stuck tall.

I've never heard about such surgery.
And I wouldn't do it.
I can only imaging how it would work
Cut bones from the legs, the body symetry would go and your body would look larger than before.
Aren't legs a beauty sign for women?
Inside the body, yes, do something at the spin, be happy with your new wheelchair, for a full function of all body organs, arms and legs,... - NO, never!

I'm 1 meter 93 cm tall, nearly 2 meters.
I'm also in the same situation.
And, I can't controll what I eat, it's difficult, if I'm "thin" it's easier to find something for dress.

Gwen, you should ask yourself what you can do with your body
Are you really only unsatiesfied with your heigth, or is there more?
For example...
My only wish is to get more hair on my head, but that's like a cure for could, it will never ever happened, and I don't believe anymore to these idiotic Pope's of modern genetic.
And the result is, I need a wig, but a big one, my head is to big, (sadly not my brain :P )
There exist a surgery for the voice, there exist a surgery for the face to remove the male marks on your skull.

But I would never damage, destroy my spin or my legs, (which are indeed a little bit shorter than normal - that helped me with trousers :wink: ).
This risk is too high, maybe in 100 years, but even then, no way...

God damn you tall people. Shut up and enjoy being able to reach the top shelf without a stepstool.

Jesus Christ.

Also, even if you got your legs shortened, your torso and arms would remain the same, so you'd look funny and out of proportion.

With the proper slouching posture, you can look from 4 to 6 inches shorter, without looking like you're slouching!

Of course, you back will try and murder you after about five years, but that's the kind of price one pays. Or not.

It's better to be short than tall. A short person can always get a tool to help them up, but I'll never be able to crawl under my bed and make a fort again!

I can! Even though I'm tall! ...Though currently I'm in the process of ordering a new bed, and my current mattress is flush with the floor, so a bed-fort involves wriggling under the mattress entirely... ;)

But at any rate, to all you people saying you'd like to be taller or shorter, I have one thing to say:

YOUR GRASS IS VERY GREEN.
