Can I increase my height at 20. My growth plates are looking closed in x-ray.

1 Doctor Answered
The height of a person is determined by his or her genetics, and it is believed that a person stops growing after reaching the age of 18-21 years of age. You may need to contact via call or video conferencing so that your issue can be discussed in detail and precise manner. Thanks.
