A 68-year-old man grew three inches in height after undertaking a ‘painful’ surgical process.

Roy Conn was able to go from 5ft 6″ to 5ft 9″ thanks to a complex bone-lengthening process that has been around since the 1950s.

Unfortunately for any shorties out there, having both of your femurs broken is not just physically painful, it’s also financially a massive slap in the face and can cost upwards of £130,000.


 The patient then has to go through the lengthening process, which takes about a millimetre a day.

“It takes you about 25 days to get an inch and nearly two and half months, or so, to capture three inches of length, during the process.”

Would you go the extra length?
