FAQ About Limb Lengthening Surgery

We prepared some of frequently asked questions for you

How many centimeters can I gain with Leg Lengthening Surgery?

For cosmetic reasons, it is preferable not to lengthen over 6-8 cm per segment. We believe that safety and health of our patients need to come first. It is extremely dangerous and risky to attempt lengthening femurs more than 8 cm and tibia more than 7 cm. If a patient desires to gain, for example, something between 10-15 cm, it is more reasonable to get 5-8 cm on femur, then later 5-7 cm on tibia, rather than attempting to lengthen 10 cm on one bone section. The flexibility of your legs is also important. The more flexible your legs are, the more relaxed you will be during the lengthening.

Can I get back my pre-surgery health?

Limb lengthening procedure and the following recovery process may take some time, but eventually you can get back your pre-surgery health and do sports that you want. For many types of sports, you may have to wait up to 1-1.5 years after your surgery. The main thing to do is to be patient, stick to the instructions of your LL doctor, take physiotherapy sessions and care about your overall health.

Can I walk with a device on my legs?

You can walk at home or get out to walk with devices on your legs. It is advisable to walk as long as it is not too extreme. At the same time, you can also do your works that you do not need much to stand up.

What kind of Leg Lengthening Surgery methods exist?

There are Ilizarov, Holyfix, LON/LATN, Precice methods which are used in limb lengthening surgery. LON is currently the most preferred method by our patients due to its short recovery period and relatively low price. However, Precice is much safer, more comfortable and less risky method, although it can be pricey for some patients. For detailed information, please visit Limb Lengthening Surgery Methods

What are the difficulties of this surgery?

You will be in bed the first day. 2nd day you can use walker  and do your needs. Depending on your situation you will spend 3-5 days at the hospital. You have to be patient for the first two months after the operation. Because every day you will be 1 mm longer. With time, there may be tension  on your legs. But this is temporary. After the lengthening  is over, the pain is reduced and the tension ends.

What are the risks associated with limb lengthening surgery?

Contrary to popular belief, limb lengthening surgery has less percentages of risk compared to many surgical procedures. One of the possible complications are non-union or slow union of bones which may be a reason for another operation to correct this. Moreover, there is a very tiny probability of serious infection. Minor infection on the surface is seen in many patients and it is quite treatable without causing serious problems. We must note that since it is an internal method, Precice has lower infection risks compared to other methods.
