What should I do to improve my body frame(structure)so that I look taller ?

Hello Doc, I m 25 years old and my height is about 5 feet 5 inches and I m 54 kg in weight. The reason I m here is, I look very short may be because of my body structure. My shoulders are not broad and not a hefty personality(genetically). I want to improve my body frame(structure) so that I look taller. Is there any way to achieve that ? I have seen my friends of my height look taller thn me because of their body structure. kindly please suggest me how can I improve my body and its shape.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
You cannot change the bony structure of your body but the only thing you can build up to look better is the muscular frame. For that you need to have a protein rich diet and you will have to exercise regularly according to the body area you want to look broader.

Welcome to HelathcareMagic forum.

I feel your BMI is fine for your height and weight and there is no need to change it, as far as your structure is concerned , you could visit a fitness clinic or a gym , where you will be taught various exercises to tone down the body and specific areas, and changes in the structure can be made .Some changes in your diet may be needed as well.

Wish you good health
