OP, glad you are now more confident. However, as mentioned earlier, it was always in you. You didn't know it. Women are reacting to your confidence. Not your height.

This is what I found online but I think different countries have different requirements. "Most flight attendants are between 5'2" and 5'9" tall. Outside of this normal range, certain airlines have minimum and maximum height requirements."

In Asia it is sometimes just for aesthetic reasons:
The airline violated the Employment Service Act (就業服務法) by running an advertisement on its Web site in April recruiting 92 flight attendants that required female flight attendants to be at least 160cm (5'3") tall and males at least 170cm (5'7"), Taipei City’s Department of Labor Affairs said.

Yeah in the USA it is usually done for leg length discrepancies.

You have to fight the babes off because you're 5'9" now?

When I was 5'6 and wore elevators (putting me at a solid 5'8), the amount of women who paid me any attention skyrocketed. It's all about HEIGHT HEIGHT HEIGHT. AFTER that, THEN looks, personality, stability, and whatever.
I have to disagree with you on this one. My DH was only 5'6" and he had more women after him than Carter has liver pills. You didn't notice he was short because he had the confidence and stature of a man 6' tall.

If someone has requirements about height then they are missing out on some amazing people.

Personally, I'm not buying what the OP is selling either

I'm with you, a self-assured confident man will always attract women, ALWAYS

He's saying he is still the same person he was before the surgery as far being able to pick up women, which means IMO, he's still getting shot down- Alot! So the question is how much time before the new found shallow confidence pool depletes and he's back to exactly the same person he was at 5'6" just $26k poorer?

And if in fact he is just as socially inept as he claims he was at 5'6" and the women he is meeting are not seeing past it, then it can't really speak much for the quality of the women either.
