Man has surgery to gain 5 inches
 
Peter Wu has surgery to gain 5 inches

I heard this story


It is about 4 minutes long.

It is shocking to me.

Because doctors can do something
and people will pay for it.

Should it be done?

Wow. I didn't think anything like that could be done.
But then again, anything is possible with the new science and technology.

Should it be done? I don't know, but I can't imagine the pain those people would be in for so long.

According to my Korean friends, this procedure is popular among young Korean girls, where they elongate their calves :(

dang that sounds like an EXTREMELY painful procedure. i'm short (5'1") but i would never get surgery to be taller.

:yikes:

at least this thread was about height. :wink:

I think it's a little sad that anyone feels like they have to be taller enough so that they'll go through surgery to get it. Should they do it? It's their choice........

I don't really feel like there's a moral problem here, so sure, if people will pay for this, why not? At the most basic level, it's appearance alteration just like any other kind of enlargement or lift or various other types of cosmetic surgery.

God knows, this will probably appear in a reality series (the Swan, anyone?) sometime in the not-too-distant future.

I wasnt game to click on the link. lol. Wash my mind out with soap.

I have known two people over the years who have had their legs lengethened in a very painful, time consuming process. Both of them were, I dont know what the politically correct term is, very very very short.

ummm, I dont think so. To me "vertically challenged' just refers to people who are short.

Im talking about people who find employment in scifi/fantasy films and plays.

I seriously did not click on the link. My two friends had a procedure that involved repatedly breaking the leg and drilling pins through the bone and stretchinig the gaps with screws. Is that what you are talking about? Incredibly painful but for my two friends worth it. They're still short but not really short. Just "vertically challenged" now. It maked a huge difference to their self esteem. Especially as they are both males and society does not treat short men all that favourably.

Is that what you guys are talking about?

this thread turns out not to be about what i thought it was going to be about.

I'm not sure why we would draw a line with this type of surgery vs. other cosmetic surgeries.

If we want to explore social engineering of these type of elective operations, perhaps we can create a plastic surgery tax to help fund general medical care.

if i was 5 inches taller i would've went to school for free... this is bullcrap.

U2democrat 12-06-2004 07:35 AM
