Limb Lengthening Revision Surgery

It is crucial to make sure that the surgeon you select for limb-lengthening surgery has adequate expertise in height enhancement. Sadly, not every patient who has limb lengthening surgery is happy with the results. Even worse, some end up having even more problems than they did before. Unfortunately, many complaints of failed limb lengthening increases take place, especially when doctors with no or little expertise and training enter the field. Op. Dr. Yunus Öç has proven himself to minimize the possible complications and has been attentive to catch the early signs of them. Besides, he has had considerable limb lengthening revision cases from other clinics/doctors. Thus, the revision cases have been done cautiously and successful outcomes have been obtained.

FAQ About Limb Lengthening Surgery

We prepared some of frequently asked questions for you

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.

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.

You can walk at home or get out to walk with devices (external ones) on your legs as long as you are allowed by your doctor and physiotherapist. It is advisable to walk as long as it is not too extreme. At the same time, you can also do some daily work that you are not required to stand up too much. For internal device (Precice nail), patients are prohibited to walk during the lengthening phase except meeting some basic needs (i.e, going to the toilet with a walker)

Of course, we do. Patients are highly advised to spend their lengthening period in Turkey until they feel like to walk unaided. We offer monthly accommodation packages and post-up care along with physiotherapy sessions.

No, you will not. We will provide you a caretaker who can speak in your mother tongue during your hospitalization. After that, we can continue providing this service as long as you want.

In today\'s competitive and unpredictable climate, a hospital\'s ability to attract well-qualified medical team and surgeons is critical to its success. Beykent University Hospital has its own wide reputation throughout Turkey, and patients will be hospitilized in this university hospital which has proven itself with advanced technological facilities, hygienic surgical environments, and advanced health service delivery.

There are LON and Precice methods which are offered currently for limb lengthening surgery. LON has been the most preferred method recently by our patients due to its short recovery period and relatively low price. Precice is much safer, more comfortable and less risky method although it can be pricy for some patients. For detailed information, please visit Limb Lengthening Surgery Methods.

You will be in bed the first day for sure. Next day, you can use a walker and meet your needs with the help of your caretaker. Roughly, you will spend 4-5 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. There may be tension and stiffness on your legs due to the stretching, however, this is temporary. After the lengthening is over, the pain is reduced and the tension ends.

Contrary to popular belief, limb lengthening surgery has less percentages of risk compared to many surgical procedures. One of the least possible risks are non-union, slow union of bones, and fast bone union, which may be a reason for another operation or getting treatment to fix this. Moreover, one of the most common complications can be infection, and it mostly is seen on the surface or around the pin sites ( LON Method). Yet, it is quite treatable without causing serious problems. We must note that internal methods such as Precice 2 or Stryde have lower infection risks compared to the other methods.
