What is Limb Lengthening?

Limb Lengthening (LL), also known as Distraction Osteogenesis, is a surgical process in which a limb (such as the femur - thigh bone, or tibia - shin bone or even the upper arm) is broken at a point (osteotomy), implanted with a lengthening device and gradually extended over time to attain more length.


LL is typically done to correct a limb length discrepancy in which one leg (or arm) is shorter than the other to prevent painful lower back, hip, knee and or ankle joints.

LL is also done for functional and or cosmetic reasons to increase stature for both individuals with dwarfism to improve the efficiency of their daily life or for people who are unhappy with their height to help them feel better about themselves.

Functional and Cosmetic Stature LL are typically done bilaterally - meaning both bones are lengthened at the same time for the sole purpose of height gain. 

The surgery is a very involved procedure requiring a large investment of time, pain-tolerance, money, work-ethic and mental grit to make a full recovery and resume normal life.

(Shown above are x-rays taken of my tibia after getting the internal lengthening nail used to lengthen my bone over time. X-ray #1 is about 1 week into lengthening phase, X-ray #2 is about 3 weeks into lengthening and X-ray #3 is 9 years later after length is achieved and device removed. I have since resumed normal life.)

What is Cyborg 4 Life & Why?

I created Cyborg 4 Life (C4L) to be an online resource hub of helpful information on the life-changing limb lengthening procedure. My primary content is through my YouTube channel.

I did it to give back to the procedure that changed my life for the better. Before I got the surgery done myself, I did lots of research, bootstrapping together the info I needed to make the life-changing decision.

And so C4L will serve as a content hub resource with simplified information about Limb Lengthening Surgery for those considering the procedure.

It was my Limb Lengthening procedure that was a major turning point in my life, fixing a height imbalance I had (got a bit taller too!), that gave me the confidence to recover, rehab and rebuild my physical & mental health better than before...into a CYBORG!

It's my hope that between the video content & podcasts you are able to gain a valuable perspective into the world of Limb Lengthening!

Here's a video on my story and why I started C4L

My Limb Lengthening Story

In short, I broke my left tibia at the growth plates when roller blading as a kid. Led to a near 2 inch leg length discrepancy causing tons of lower back and joint pain. 

In 2012 I got limb lengthening surgery done to fix this height imbalance and finally relieve my pain. 

Nearly 10 years later (as of 2022) I am training hard to become a world champion in drug-free natural bodybuilding.

EKRIN B37 Massage Gun Review Video

This is a video review on the EKRIN B37 Massage Gun and all I can say is I'm absolutely impressed. I've tried a few massage guns in the past and I can say that this is the best.

It has a solid grip, it delivers powerful, quiet and fast percussions to condition my muscle tissue below the surface. After using this for just 2-5 minutes, the name "suppleness" and muscle pliability takes on a whole other meaning.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product for patients undergoing the limb lengthening procedure where muscle tissue can get very tight in a short amount of time either risking a muscle contracture or have to stop lengthening prematurely due to excessive pain and tightness.

Here's how I recommend you use it;

In the weeks leading up to your surgery you can use it both pre-workout to maximize performance in the gym, and hours later to help you recover faster.

Stop using it for about 1.5-2 weeks after surgery so your body can catch up and recover from the trauma, then use it just before your stretching sessions at home, after physical therapy to improve the muscle flexibility and before bed to help you recover faster, prevent muscle contractures and regulate pain levels in a positive manner.

Physical Therapy & Rehab 

Here are some of the physical therapy exercises you can expect to do after leg lengthening surgery. Now I’m going to break it up into different aspects of the lower limb; quads, hams, calves, hips as well as some tools I found are going to be a big help towards the end.

Athleticism after Limb Lengthening Surgery

A lot of factors play into it, such as how much length you got, how much effort you put into physical therapy rehab, how much your biomechanics will change after surgery, how good was your nutrition, the type of lengthening procedure you got done and finally just giving yourself enough time to recover.

The Truth about LL Surgery Recovery

Making a full recovery means that your lengthened bone or bones are fully healed when your surgeon says so after seeing the final x-rays, as well as your soft tissue (muscle, nerves and so on). It also means you’ve regained full flexibility in your limbs and you have the potential to do the activities you did pre-surgery .
