Here's the thing, I want to make my bones smaller. A smaller chest, narrower shoulders, shorter height, everything back to what it was before I hit my growth spurt. I will do anything from eating habits to major state-of-the-art surgery. I've searched the internet relentlessly with little success. I thought about depriving myself of calcium, but people tell me that won't work. Right now i'm 5'8" and sort of big boned.

Please tell me anything I can do to make this happen!

(im guessing your a guy)..Not to disappoint you.. But I don't think you have any chance of that happening!! Why aren't you happy with how you are? Im sure you'd rather look like a man then a little boy. You always have the option of losing weight, but the chance of you making your bones smaller?!?! Nah, I don't think so

Bone Size
Mickey, you are what you are, there is no bones about it. Why on earth would you want to be smaller. Be happy with who you are. Wink

Unfortunately there is nothing you can do. You are built how you are and as far as bones go, you are stuck with it. So, try to be happy with who you are. Each of us is unique and love yourself for it.

Well, thanks anyway for replying and not saying i'm a freak or anything (most people seem to want to go the other way and get bigger). Yeah, people I ask say I should just be happy with how I am, but my mind is completely bent on this. I see myself as a kid (notice I use the name mikey instead of my formal one), then I look in the mirror and see my size and small hair on my face, and then I get upset. I figure it has to be possible because something causes bones to grow, so it only makes sense that something should be able to reverse all that. I guess i'll just keep looking, but if anyone out there has any ideas pleeeeeeze tell me. Bone saws and steel clamps are not out of the question. I'll try anything.

Surgery
There is surgery used that crushs the bones and allows them to regrow in a different form but im afraid that you will not qualify for this only people that are seriously ill due to their bones qualify for this very painful and serious surgery!

Depriving yourself of calcium is not a good idea, itll make your bones/teeth weak and may cause serious damage.
