Have you heard about the Instagram influencer who spent a considerable sum of money to increase his height? Yeferson Cossio, who has a massive 11 million followers on the platform, reportedly underwent a lower limb lengthening surgery to add an additional six inches to his height and become six feet tall. The procedure cost him a whopping $175,000 and is said to have been excruciatingly painful. However, Yeferson seems to be satisfied with the results and recently shared a video on his Instagram page, stating that he is neither a dwarf nor the tallest.

In a recent video shared on his Instagram page, Yeferson Cossio, the popular Instagram influencer with 11 million followers, revealed that his lower limb lengthening surgery was solely for “aesthetic” purposes. According to him, he had some personal issues with his legs two years ago, and leg stretching was one of the things that had the most impact on him. However, he did not elaborate further on what those issues were.

Yeferson left his original five-foot-eight height behind, describing the procedure as the “most painful surgery ever”

Yeferson will have to undergo physical therapy sessions to help him adjust to walking with his new legs in the future. The Cleveland Clinic explains that limb lengthening surgery is a procedure that lengthens an arm or leg bone gradually. This procedure is typically used to treat skeletal dysplasia, bone growth problems, and differences in bone length. The surgery involves two primary steps: an osteotomy that involves dividing the affected bone into two segments, and then attaching a limb-lengthening device to these two segments of the bone.

“Yes, my legs are pretty but I hate them … I am self-conscious,” Yeferson said
