How Much Taller Can A Custom Skull Implant Make Me?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I was searching for a method how to be taller, and i found your website. It says in your hospital you do silicone head implant to grow taller. I would really like to be 5cm taller. I was thinking about Ilizarov limb lengthening but it would be too risky. I would like to do the surgery to boost my self confidence and for my job.
Please help me
A: Thank you for your inquiry. Limb lengthening by distraction is the definitive way to gain 5cms in height. A custom skull implant, due to the limitations of scalp stretch, can only make you taller by about 2cms at most.
