    Know the side effects/dangers like everyone is saying. I used to suffer from paralyzing psychological insecurity, also known as dysmorphia. I'm sorry for what you're going through.

    If it's safe and effective, I don't really see what the problem is. Good looking women get breast implants, ass implants, and lipo, then they walk into a room with more confidence and feeling better in their own skin.

    I'm not a doctor though, I would hate it if it fucked you up.

    It's probably not your shortness that's affecting you but your projected self-consciousness about your height.

    If we look at it from a slightly different perspective;

    I'm 6'3, I'm ugly as Hell and I'm kinda' fat but I do alright at the point when I'm not thinking about the fact I've got a mule's ass for a face and I look like a pear with menacing intentions. When I'm dwelling on how disgusting I look, I lose my game because I don't think I can get the girl and start doubting myself like "Why would this chick wanna bang? I'm vile". When I'm happy, confident and don't give a shit about it, you can't stop me because when you start projecting those self-doubts onto others then it gets them thinking. If you can't believe in yourself, nobody else can.

    Besides, some people find monstrously tall people like myself overbearing and intimidating.

    I'm willing to believe that it's your projected self-criticism in your lack of height that is affecting your game, not the actual being short that's screwing you up.

    The very fact that you've considered getting a surgery to improve your game shows how little you must have (and how much potential you have to grow.)

    The proving ground is in your mind. Read the right books and listen to the right people. With height being your "problem" I would focus on David DeAngelo for Deep Inner Game and AFC Adam for the basics of Social Proof and Pre-Selection.

    I can't say that I do...but thats because I don't know many short guys in general. Sure, it's a handicap to your game, but you should never have surgery to overcome this. If your going to have surgery, it should have nothing to do with getting more girls. It should be for completely different reasons.

    Read this article, I know it applies more to people who are considering nose jobs, face lifts, etc. but I feel some of it applies to your situation as well. But your procedure is a major procedure while others are quick and heal fast.

    Dr. Phil.com - Advice - Should You Have Cosmetic Surgery?

    I doubt this applies to you but guys stop growing at 25 years old. If your under 25 wait until then to make a decision. Like I said, I don't know anyone who is under 5'4, but I do know others who are much worse off than you that can get girls. Its all about your inner game. I'm sure you would have more success with girls who are shorter than you so I'd focus on them when you go out sarging. Most of the girls I see are around your height too so there's plenty of short girls out there.

    Ultimately, I'd ask this question: If you had no problem getting girls, dated different girls every week, would you still want the surgery? If the answer is no, then don't do it.

    I agree with the people who say surgery should be a last resort. Maybe a tight game can overcome the height disadvantage but let's also be honest it is a disadvantage. I think maybe if someone could show him the ropes it would help so he makes sure he hasn't exhausted his options. Where do you live SunDevil? Maybe there's someone nearby who could coach/mentor you.

    Also what have the doctors said would be the side effects and how much would it add to your height?

    bro. dont go for it and i agree with cody all you want to do is improve your game, i know a 5ft tall guy who just gets all HB10's he is funny, charming and all of the above a great dude.

    see, its not your height, not your looks its your personality which gets you girls at the end if you are focused on your dreams your goals girls will chase you but if you become needy they will run away. i know sounds fucked up but that's the truth i know a lot of rich boys who tall and have model looks but still struggle getting girls so be careful if you are taking a surgery just improve your game don't go for it otherwise its your choice.

    cheers
    Nice guys don't finish last, boring guys does.

    I don't think your height is the issue, there are plenty of shorter women out there. I'm about 5 hours away from you. I would be willing to coach you, on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday stretch if you make it to Albuquerque. this isn't just sarging with some guy, I'm a paid coach. I'm offering you this coaching at no charge.

    Don't do it. I don't care what the doctors say, surgery ALWAYS has some kind of side effect that is not comfortable and once you go under the knife you are never the same... doctors always say sh1t to get your money and give you all sorts of talk about how safe it is. Bullsh1t.

    I just saw a totally hot girl last night at dinner with a really short guy, he was probably about 5'2 but he was cool and relaxed, she was more like 5'6. He was kinda worked out for a small guy, so it looked for sure like he put effort into looking good, definitely hit the weights.

    I also knew a really short dude about 5'1 who was married to a HOT skinny brunette wife that was like 5'8.

    I didn't read all the responses, but just based on your question. F No.

    I've seen plenty of short guys, even heavy set short guys in my PUA community getting number after number because they beem with confidence regardless of their shortcomings (no pun intended).

    Your looks and features don't matter to other people nearly as much as the way you present them. As long as you feel you're at a disadvantage, you are. Turn your mindset around and you'll change the way people interact with you.
    Never need praise, sympathy, or approval
