      Taller always seems more aesthetically pleasing to me. So I understand someone perhaps feeling a little self conscious about it. And there is that unfair stigma for short men. However, this surgery does seem really insane. I remember another similar article about this on Readup. I believe that article was written by a sister whose brother had the surgery and died afterwards from complications. So there’s always some risk involved too.

      The description of the surgery is even more brutal than I had imagined. It's amazing what people will put themselves through to gain a few inches.
