No, I think what you need is some kind of mental health support. You seem to be insecure, and they should be able to help you with that. That would be much cheaper, easier and safer than surgery and most importantly it would address the root cause of your issues.

Why don't you go for short girls?
girls between 4'11 - 5'2 wouldn't mind your height

You're 5'7. You're acting like you're 4'0 feet. I don't mean to trivialise your issues but please, calm down. Take a deep breath and relax. Don't get sad over someone who dismisses you like that just because you're not some 6'7 giant. There are many, many women who will think your height is good. You don't need any lengthening surgery. What if someone mocks something else about you? Are you going to get surgery for that too? That'll just be an endless cycle of changing yourself to please those who will never even change themselves for you.

Your height is fine. Just take some time to learn to love yourself as you are. You'll eventually meet people who are attracted to you. If it's a tall girl you want, there are many who wouldn't mind a shorter guy. Just be patient.

Feeling insecure especially when you're the shortest in the family is understandable. But try not to worry so much. You'll be absolutely fine.

Also, one part of confidence is learning to accept compliments as they're given. If they called you cute, accept it. Don't start scrutinising or over-analysing it. Just appreciate the compliment.

Knowing that a guy got that procedure is probably worse than him just being short. It's a pretty brutal experience to put yourself through when you medically don't need it.
Yes, at once.
