American man spends $170K to increase his height to succeed in dating

Moses Gibson underwent two major surgeries costing over $170,000 to increase his height by 5 inches.

He grew from 5'5" to 5'8" after the first surgery in 2016 and is currently in the process of another surgery to get up to 5'10".

Moses struggled with his dating life and feelings of inferiority because of his short stature.

He tried various medications and a "spiritual doctor" before deciding on surgical augmentation.

To master the processes, he worked as a software engineer and drove for Uber at night, saving $75,000 over three years.

After the first surgery, Moses became less hesitant and more confident, and now has a girlfriend.

He also feels more comfortable wearing shorts and taking full body pictures.

His story was shared on Twitter by marketing agency "The Cosmic Lane".
