America News: A man in America whose height was 5 feet 5 inches, felt that he was less tall, so he wanted to be 5 inches taller. He tried many methods, which did not work. Then he resorted to a painful surgery to increase the length of both his legs, on which he spent Rs 1.35 crore.
According to The Cosmetic Lane, the man’s name is Moses Gibson. His age is 41 years. He lives in Minnesota, USA. He wanted that like tall men, he too could enjoy his dating life. To increase his height by five inches, he underwent a surgery, which cost $ 1,70,000 (about Rs 1.35 crore). He told that he had tried many other things including medicine and spiritual healing to increase his height.
‘Wanted to enjoy dating tall men’
Gibson told Kennedy News & Media, “I didn’t feel good about my height of 5 feet 5 inches. I used to get sad whenever I thought about it, because women in general prefer tall men. I was finding my height a hindrance in my dating.”
‘I used to put things in my shoes to look tall’
Gibson said, “I used to put a lot of things in my shoes to gain a little height, but it didn’t make much difference.” Gibson told that he also took many such pills, which are claimed to increase the height. And also met a spiritual healer, who told him that he could increase his height if he set his mind right, but when both the remedies failed, Gibson decided to undergo an expensive surgery. It is said about that surgery that it makes a man’s legs longer.
Height increased by 3 inches in first surgery
According to Gibson, “I raised $75,000 for surgery over the course of three years by working as a software engineer and Uber driver. It all started in 2016, when I noticed that I had grown 3 inches in height.

He said, “After the first procedure, I started feeling happy to some extent, but I always had it in my mind that I would do the second procedure as well.” He said, “I am a person who tries to reach heights. I had money and I wanted to use it to fulfill my dreams.”
Spent $98,000 for second surgery
Gibson further revealed that in the month of March, he spent $98,000 for a second surgery to increase his height by another 2 inches. However, this surgery proved to be very painful. Bone was pulled in this, and this remedy is also dangerous. He said that even then I am ready to take the risk and I will be happy only if I am 5 feet 10 inches high. He even said that if my body would accommodate my 5-foot-11-inch height, that would be even better!”
Still no regrets!
Thus despite going through the pain and the huge expense, Gibson has no regrets about trying to increase his height even at the age of 41.
