Brief Answer:
Some surgical procedures may help.

Detailed Answer:


At the age of 20, there is no way to increase height either by medicines or exercises.

There are certain surgical procedures which may allow an increase in height but they are very complex and may have complications. It is not advisable.

Ms XXXX my personal advice to you would be against interfering with nature. 151 cm is good for normal living. I would suggest using heels for social gatherings.

Hope I have answered your query.
