  • I have a 25-years old son who hasrelatively log torso. He is considering taking arm lengthening to make a normal balance (his wingspan is 175cm while his height is 180cm).
    I know lengthening humerus is reasonable procedure to take, but he is more concerned about his forearms shortening.
    Is there any way that he can receive forearm lengthening. It will be really helpful to find out if he has a solution as it has become a very serious problem to him. It has become suicidal and he is really on the edge. Please help us.

    • Dear Sir/Madam,
      Now, we also replied to your concern via email. It must be remembered that forearms lengthening is rather difficult then humerus; however, Dr. Ozgur is of the view that it is possible with external fixators device. Secondly, the patient can gain up to 3-4 cms on his forearms; with a total recovery time of 6 to 8 months. The surgical cost for bilateral (Both) forearms lengthening will be 9,000 Euros.

    • Dear Perry James,

      First of all, we would like to thank you for your kind comment and interest in limb lengthening and correctional surgery. Now, it must be stated that it is highly NOT recommended pursuing simultaneous limb lengthening for both the tibia and femurs at the same time.

      There are several reasons for this, primarily, the human body can so much trauma and with both limbs simultaneously surgical broken; the risk of fat embolisms and non-unification increases. Due to these concerns, the doctors recommend at least 5 to 6 months wait period between the surgeries, so that once there is significant bone consolidation on the first pair of bone, then the second pair could be safely operated on.

      Thank you for contacting us; for more information and questions contact us directly at support@wannbetaller.com or through Phone or Whatsapp: +90 533 193 65 00

    • Hallo there!
      I want to ask you couple of questions.
      Are you removing the nail after full bone recovery,and is there aditional payment for this surgery?
      Is the choice of a bone important if you want to add like 6sm….is it gonna be aestetical,or its better to make a surgery on bouth bones for 3sm?
      After the full bone recovery the patient can go back to training?

      • Dear Stilian,

        Now, I will answer your questions one by one:

        1. Yes, the doctors do perform nail removal surgery and the cost of the surgery is 750 Euros

        2. Usually, patients prefer to lengthen the femurs, as they are naturally longer and can gain up to 6 cms; but those who choose to lengthen both usually do 6 cms on the femurs and 5 cms on the tibias, for a more natural aesthetic.

        3. Yes, Once the bones heal completely, the patients can return to all sports and gym exercises, as they sued to before the surgery.

  • Hello. I’m thinking of having limb lengthening surgery next year. I’d prefer to do it with LON method. But before doing the surgery I wanna ask you some questions. How soon can I walk normally without any restrictions? E.g. how long will it take me to be able to use public transports? Do you provide patients with a caretaker or should I take my family member or friend with me?

    • Hello,

      Firstly I would like to thank you for your comment. Now to answer your first question, with the LON method the recovery times can be between 3 to 5 months. And, usually, a patient can start to walk during the distraction phase, after the initial surgical recovery; as the Internal embedded nail can support the weight of the patient. However, little by little as your distraction phase is finishing, you can start to walk more and more. Once the devices are removed after 4 to 5 months you can return to your normal life and use public transportation again. And to answer your second question, it is always recommended to have a family member or friend as support; however, we can also provide you with an English speaking caretaker for you as well.

      For a more detailed and personalized consultation, please contact us via Phone or WhatsApp: +90 531 982 82 99 or email: support@wannabetaller.com
