Fight Against Maturity

Stand tall(er)

Herald Sun

For diminutive men such as French President Nicolas Sarkozy, famously overshadowed by his wife Carla Bruni, a pair of stack heels used to be the only way to stand tall. But a surgeon has devised a new way of adding up to 5cm to a persons height by inserting a silicone head implant.

During a 90-minute operation, an incision is made in the side of the head and the implant squeezed in between the skull and the scalp. Dr Luis de la Cruz developed the procedure to help people who would normally be too short for jobs with a minimum height.
