While some might be horrified at the lengths people will go to, sadder still is the fact that the people getting the operations are vindicated later by actually getting better opportunities, being perceived as more attractive, etc......



Although since in the particular operation, all the height gain comes between the knee and ankle, it might look a little like you're walking around on stilts. LOL

Geez, at 5'6" with a 29 inch inseam, I don't think I've EVER been able to flat-foot ANY bike I've owned, but I never thought of this as a disadvantage. In fact, I made my living for 10 years pulling wrenches in a motorcycle shop between 1965 and 1975, and never had a problem riding anything (although I admit that tha advent of the mini-motocrossers was WAY cool. . . ). Trouble is, there have been a number of studies that prove that being tall DOES improve your chances for advancement in the corporate world, so in this hyper-competitive era, I guess this surgery should not be shocking . . .
