Hi
Thanks For contacting us
There are no medically proven and documented cases where officially the height has been increased with medications in this age group.
Ossification centers close at around 18-20 years of age, therefore scientifically height increment beyond this age is impossible. However I have heard a few inches increase after yoga therapy. You can consult a yoga practitioner and discuss about it.
Height Lengthening and Deformity Correction Surgery are available in some countries.
For your age Operative procedure will not recommend .
