Canadian Patient’s Successful Limb Lengthening Process
The limb lengthening surgery process of our male Canadian patient, who is in his 40s, has been healthily done recently. First of all, there is a specific age range to have limb lengthening surgery. However, if it is decided after the physical examinations and X-Rays that the patient’s muscles, tendons, and bones are strong enough, then the patient can have the surgery regardless of their age and our Canadian patient proves it. Our patient’s age didn’t prevent him from having the surgery in this case.
Likewise, patients that are too young should be at least 18 years old to have the surgery and their growth plates should be closed, which means their growing stage should have ended. Now, let’s talk about the details of our Canadian patient’s lengthening process.
Because our patient did his pre-surgery exercises regularly, his muscles and other soft tissues were flexible before the surgery, which helped him to have a comfortable lengthening process. Because his soft tissues were flexible, he didn’t experience much pain, which emphasizes the importance of pre-surgery exercises. You can ask for the pdf that shows the exercises that should be done before the surgery from our patient consultant.

Before our Canadian patient had his surgery, he wanted to get 2 surgeries but because he was able to lengthen over 8 cm with only one surgery, and now that his new height is 175 cm, which is an average male height, he is not thinking of having his second surgery right now.
The Things that our Canadian Patient Experienced during his Lengthening Process
Our patient has increased their height by 8.4 cm in 80-85 days. Our patient has had their process flawlessly and didn’t experience any complications. His daily lengthening amount was 1 mm as the doctor suggests.
Our patient’s bone union process after his limb lengthening surgery from the femur with the LON(Combined) method went at a normal speed as well.
You can watch the physical therapy sessions of our patient during the lengthening process down below:
The physical therapy that patients get during their lengthening process helps the patients to go back to their normal lives more easily, just like the pre-surgery exercises help. Our expert physiotherapists create a physical therapy program special for limb-lengthening surgery patients, which helps release the patients’ muscles. If our Precice patients want, they can get Hydrotherapy under the expertise of our physiotherapists.
The Patient’s Scars after Limb Lengthening Surgery
One of the things that patients who had limb lengthening surgery with the LON(Combined) method may face after device removal surgery is the scars left by the fixator.
These are the scars of our Canadian patient after his device removal surgery. If the patients request, they can get Fractional Laser Treatment, which is one of our offered services. It helps get rid of scars up to 99%.
Our Patient’s Before and After Surgery Height Difference
Our patient’s pre-surgery height was 167 cm while his new height is 175 cm. You can see his before and after surgery photos below. We wish him a healthy and happy life with his new height.
