Theresia Fischer wants to have her legs lengthened

The former “Germany’s Next Top Model” candidate Theresia Fischer (29) wants to go high – literally. “I want to have my legs extended by about six centimeters on the lower leg,” reveals the 1.77 meter tall model “RTL”. She has to shell out a total of 58,000 francs for it.

For fishermen, however, the risky leg lengthening is nothing new. In 2016 she went under the knife for the first time for a total of 8.5 centimeters. “In this type of surgery, the femurs are sawn through from the inside, then telescopic rods are inserted on both sides, which are automatically lengthened by a millimeter every day,” she explains. If something goes wrong during the operation, she could end up in a wheelchair forever.
