That being said, I'm 5`7" but would love to be 5`9". =( I saw this procedure before on the Discovery Health Channel - it`s currently being performed in the US for people who are dwarves.

"i'm fifteen and think short girls are cute. i`m about 5`7 and have a girlfriend about 5`4. adorable :P"

Okay 5`4" is NOT short. 5`3"-5`4" is the average height for a female in the US. Link

How do they do it in secret if it takes a year of PAINFUL recovery? And wouldn't they have awkwardly long tibias afterward? All 4" are being added to the shin! It seems like they would look like they were wearing mini-stilts or something.
