I remember hearing about limb extensions on Newsround (Americans, think kids’ TV where somehow all news is good news). The story was about a girl who wanted to be an air hostess but wasn’t tall enough to reach the overhead compartments. She therefore underwent hours of surgery and weeks of agonising pain in order to be able to apply for the job.
I think the woman got her job as an air hostess. But what Newsround failed to mention is the harrowing process which the poor girl had to go through. This video bought to us by a YouTube channel and cosmetic surgery company named Height Lengthening (or should that be Length Heightening?) reveals how the process works…
And if (for some reason) this has made you wary of having your legs extended, just check out some of these incredible images from the Height Lengthening website.
And if you’re still not convinced about that height lengthening operation, check out the story of this bunny and his short person problems.
