Moses Gibson, a guy from the United States, had surgery to increase his height by a few inches in an effort to feel more comfortable.
Gibson struggled with talking to women because of self-doubt after seeing other guys his age have growth spurts that he did not, according to a Daily Mail report. Gibson had experienced insecurities about his height since he was 15 years old.
He tried several drugs and even got in touch with an internet “spiritual healer” who said they may aid in his growth. in a futile effort to become taller.
Moses eventually decided to have surgery to increase his size after all other options failed. The results? Doctors added five inches to his height.
Speaking about how he struggled with his height, he said, “I’ve struggled with my height. Even when I was in high school, I was always unhappy with my height.
“When I was like 15, I realized most of my peers were taller than me. It started getting to me gradually.”
He learned about a procedure that could lengthen his legs, and he began working extra hours to save up enough money for the surgery during college.
After working as a software engineer during the day and as an Uber driver at night for three years, he underwent surgery to add three inches to his height in 2016, but seven years later has had a second round and is using a height-lengthening device.
Moses’ tibia and fibula bones were broken, and magnetic, limb-lengthening nails were placed into them.
He is now required to lengthen his height three times each day by dragging the broken bones apart millimeter by millimeter.
