This complex surgery was done by cosmetic surgeon Kevin Debiparshad. Speaking to the Daily Star, Mr Conn said, "It (height) was not a big issue. I used to think about this when I was young. As far as money was concerned, I was able to afford it and I got time. Then I worked on it. I didn’t have any problem with my height. Just sometimes I used to feel that my height is a little less. My wife was worried when I was going for surgery. I have had this surgery done for my own satisfaction, not for anyone else.”
