Surgeons increase man’s height by five inches to help him woo women

A United States man, Moses Gibson, has undergone surgery to add five inches to his height in an attempt to boost his self-confidence.

Gibson, according to a report in the Daily Mail, had suffered from an insecurity about his stature since he was 15 years old and struggled with talking to women due to self-doubt after witnessing other boys his age go through growth spurts that he did not.

He tried medications and even contacted a ‘spiritual healer’ online who claimed to be able to help him grow In a desperate attempt to grow 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.

Doctors broke Moses’ tibia and fibula bones and inserted magnetic, limb-lengthening nails into them.

He must now use a height-lengthening device three times per day, pulling the cut bones apart one millimetre at a time.
