5'7 guy on r/short gets leg lengthening

This guy went from 5'6.5 to a bit below 5'9

Do you think he's bullshitting? He claims that he makes $150k/year after college graduation, which I find very difficult to believe. Usually those kinds of people are intelligent enough not to do LL at 5'7. Earning $150k/yr after college is very, very rare in the first place. 

On top of that he claims he was very outgoing/confident and was well traveled. Why the fuck would someone so perfect feel the need to do LL at 5'7? 

And it's only been 2 months and he already has no pain complications whatsoever. It honestly seems too good to be true. Perhaps it's an LL doctor/forum owner trying to drum up business?

This sounds so fake. This guy didn't even know his exact height before he decided to get LL. Only truly height-obsessed people get LL and I bet all of them know their height to the exact millimeter

I guess $150k 3 years after college is theoretically possible, although very unlikely. But the real mystery is why the company would allow a rookie like him to take MONTHS off work just for cosmetic surgery.

And even if this is true, it goes to show that LL is only an option for very wealthy young men like him.

Mental illness. Intelligent people suffer from mental illness as much as stupid people do if not more.

He could be. He posted a thread on the LL forum too, and apparently he used to think that he was 1.5 inches shorter than he really was... which sounds like BS to me.

Seems like an awful lot of people on reddit are young, wealthy people

In any case, the guy mentioned he chose Dr. Paley. Since he mentioned a specific doctor, he is probably a staff member of Dr. Paley trying to drum up business. This guy lengthened 7 cm and claims it didn't feel that painful and has no health problems. What a load of shit.
