Why Tom Cruise doesn't get height surgery if he can grow 5 inches?

It does creep me out.

What would I say about the amputation? Those who do the surgery and want the height very badly will be taking risks.

What about athletic ability? It seems those who do the surgery never go back to 100% maybe 80-85%.

Why do some people at 5'5"-5'8" still do it? Because there are some successful lengthenings at the price of cost, $80,000 or $50k EUR

whereas if you do it for $25k somewhere cheap I would rather not do it. Some people are okay going back to only their 85% of their athletic ability and walk out 4 inches taller supposedly.

I believe they did a joke on southpark about this didn't they? Of course they made it about race but either way, I think this surgery is still highly risky. He is a well known man who is on top of his game. He accepts himself. Why who a man who loves who he is need surgery?

Why the hell is everyone so obsessed with Tom Cruise and his height?

Why Tom Cruise and not Daniel Radcliffe? Daniel is 5'5" tops and Tom is more 5'7"-5'8" I believe.

 

Now it would be false to say Tom Cruise doesn't have any insecurity over his height, given that he is known to wear thick-heeled shoes for that extra solid look. But he's not hugely insecure, otherwise he wouldn't have married women taller than him and probably WOULD be doing height surgery!

 

Besides, Daniel Radcliffe has talked about his height more in the past and seems content, so as well as being even shorter than Cruise, why would he even do leg lengthening?

I don't see the point of this. Why would a celebrity who has already been in the public eye put themselves through the social and physical torture of trying to make themselves taller? None of them would do this. They'd have nothing to gain. We already see how the press drags celebs through the mud who do any type of plastic surgery. Leg Lengthening just isn't that common and is regarded as something someone would only do if they had severe mental issues. 

I don't get the point of this thread.

For those who say you can't grow taller at age 35, that it's impossible this and that. Guess what's good news? Yes you can.

And I already saved up some money to do it in 2 years. Going for 3 inches first. If I like it, then 2 more inches.

What after that? I'll be 5'9" or 5'11". What is the deep point? Go after your dreams if you want it badly. Pain is temporary, height is forever.

What is a permanent way to grow taller for those who have the resources?

Height surgery www.makemetaller.org read the hospitals where they do it safely and read the diaries.

What's stopping you? Fear. What's not stopping me? You live once and have the resources and the only thing you should fear is the Lord not pain or a 0.5% chance of having a problem.

Where do they do this safely? In many places in the US

What is the cost to do it safely? $60,000 here in North Hollywood, $80k or so in Florida and few places in Baltimore, MD

How much can you lengthen safely? 4-5 inches in 2 pair of bones. Or juts 3 inches in one shot.

How does this sound? Fear only the Lord, not the money, not the pain. Height surgery is improving, not perfecting yourself.

I understand your post; nonetheless, I think the decision on surgery is ridiculous.  You're fine the way you are.  Like seriously, why the hell do you even have to spend that kind of money just to make people like you more?  This decision on paying 60k-80k for height is plain idiocracy in my opinion.  You can get something even better with that money.  If people don't like you because of something you're born with, which is not a danger to others, it is safe to say that they are imbeciles.  I ignore them and laugh at them.

Wouldn't do it for any amount of money in the world. The last thing I want is to be 85% of what I was pre op.
