How To Grow Taller: The Facts

In this video Dr. Shahab Mahboubian discusses how to grow taller.

Hello, my name is Dr. Shahab Mahboubian. I’m an orthopedic surgeon and I specialize in limb lengthening and deformity correction.

As a limb lengthening specialist I have a lot of people that ask me about how to grow taller. What I try to explain to them is that their height is really dependent on their genetics, which is really related to the height of their parents.

In addition I also tell them to exercise on a regular basis and keep a well-balanced healthy diet. This can help them grow to their potential height, perhaps even taller.

This is very effective prior to puberty and skeletal maturity. Skeletal maturity is basically about a year or two years after puberty, where your bones have fused. At that point, any exercise or supplements is not really going to increase your height.

People have also asked me about growth hormone or HGH. This is something that you would need to talk to your medical doctor about and perhaps see an endocrinologist. However HGH or growth hormone are really mostly effective prior to puberty as well.

So what is the alternative? There is a height lengthening procedure that you can do to gain additional inches to your height. This is not a procedure that is not for everybody and you would need to qualify for the surgery.

If you are simply just not content with your height and this is something that you are interested in, please visit my website for more information.
