Leg extensions for purely cosmetic reasons are not very common. On the other hand, the method is used for medical reasons if a patient can not go properly because one leg is shorter than the other. The operation is usually done as early as possible.
How do I get taller?
Leg extension is now possible without complications and pain.
In some countries, this operation is performed using different methods. Among other things, there is the Ilizarov method and this method is an old method which is not recommended and has a lot of complications. An internal nail in the leg is a method but this method has high costs and is wheelchair-bound and bedside throughout the process. Our method is the latest method performed by our Turkish doctor who is one of Turkey’s leading doctors in this area and has only had successful operations. Holyfix is the method we use. This method can also be used if the legs are trapezoidal.
Holyfix applied since 1997 Mono lateral pin type is a method that is an improved version of Wagner and De Bastiani methods and according to the Ilizarov method has fewer complications due to fixtures and better patient compliance.
The nail is inserted in the leg unilaterally outside the Holyfix device. The nails are inserted where there is a lack of blood vessels and nerves, closest to the skin and attached to the safe zone, and the nail stays in the leg and does not extend to the other side. This method prevents the risk of infection. Holyfix is made of special aluminum and titanium alloys that are lighter and MRI compatible. This system is a bio mechanical system that is extremely stable and safe and therefore the patient can be treated. The extension process is very convenient; can be done easily by the patient. Holyfix accelerates bone formation and prevents shortening and has a special shape.
A NEW STEP TIME
Before the bone is cut, HOLYFIX is properly prepared and performed with 2 or 3 nails depending on the patient’s body weight. The skin incision for the surgery is between 3-4 cm and the stitches are aesthetically sewn on the inside thereof not need to be removed. They disappear by themselves and leave no scars.
The extension consists of six steps:
1. Inspection and examination
4. Extension process
5. Strengthen the extended leg
6. Removal of Holyfix
