Surgery or other methods to make me shorter? Does anything exist/work? Watch
I feel like if I was normal height (5ft 4) I could wear heels and still be smaller than the average man. I'd only need to lose 2 inches.
Is there any way I can do this? I heard of surgery to shorten your leg length but a google search has not yielded much. Or spinal surgery?
Given that I don't want to lose much is there ANY way of getting shorter at all....if I went on a low protein low calcium diet for instance would that cause some sort of reduction is bone density/and therefore height?
Advice appreciated serious replies only please
Spinal surgery sounds extreme and i can't imagine what could be done to make you shorter through surgery on the spine.
1. 5'6" is not a grossly unusual height, you need not be so self-conscious. There's no surgeon in the realm who'd dream of operating on you, the risks of surgery would far, far outweigh the benefits of losing 2" off an otherwise totally normal height. When leg-shortening surgery is performed, it's for people who have legs which are significantly different in length from each other...
2. NO, a low protein and low calcium diet would not make you any shorter, and would be very bad for your health overall. Calcium intake and bone integrity are not laughing matters.
3. If you're not trolling me, then you should speak to someone about this, because to even consider ways to... Shorten.. yourself.. is really concerning. Certainly nobody would seriously ever perform surgery on you just for the sake of being able to wear bigger heels.
It is pretty extreme to be considering spinal surgery for this reason. I know you're probably just researching (and sorry, I can't help with the actual question), but 5ft6 is honestly a good height for a girl (assuming you're in Western Europe).
Certainly anything you do medically would come with complications that I doubt would be worth the two inches.
Love your height. There's a reason models are all tall.
You say you want to be 5'4 but with 6 inch heels you'd be 5'10.
But at the moment you claim you're 5'6 and with 6inch heels you're 5'10/11?
Our survey says ur eh!
5"6 is the perfect height for a woman. Heels more than 3-4inch dont look great imo. The hourglass figure is perfect for 5'5/5'6 if any taller you're half a man and if any shorter you'll become a plump if you dont maintain yourself lol
Besides as you get older you'll wear heels less so wont look too shorter than your man
