Brief Answer: It is really difficult to increase height after 28 Detailed Answer: Hi, It is really difficult to increase height after the age of 28, primarily due to the fact that the bones stop growing at this age. Surgeries and growth hormones which promise height growth in adults are potentially XXXXXXX and detrimental for the body. However, with a few tricks and tips, it may be possible to add a few inches or at least appear taller. Growth hormone is responsible for increase in height. Post puberty the production of this hormone is slow. Some people take this hormone in the form of pills and injection, but that do not improve height much. On the contrary, that might cause side effects producing disturbances hormonal imbalances. Hyperpigmentation,lethargy,weakness,nausea may also occur. Limb lengthening surgery refers to an operation where a piece of bone is cut from some part of the body and is attached to your leg bones. This enhances the height permanently. It is very expensive and risky..it would be XXXXXXX So, I do not recommend this method to increase the height. Vertebroplasty is one sure way of increasing a person’s height after the age of 28. This involves the lengthening of the human spine that would contribute to the height increase. This may be considered. Another option to grow few inches height after the age of 28 is stretching exercises & yoga along with the right diet. One must take stretching workouts regularly and rigorously.Basket ball & swimming may be helpful. Have lot of water,dairy products and balance diet. And to take diet rich in zinc, manganese and phosphorus. One should take Sunbath to have vitamin D, which is also responsible for height. I hope you got my answer. Thanks. Dr.Ilyas Patel MD
