Can you grow after growth plates are closed?
No, it is impossible to grow. Growth plates are areas of collagen, soft tissue. New bones build on top one another leading to growth. Fusion means that your growth plates have ossified (completely turn into bones). You can get bone lengthening surgery, which can cost at least 50-75K for an added 3 inches of growth.
