    Hello madam at 29years of age I will not advice a corrective surgery for bow leg as the bone if no longer malleable. but you can seek an orthopaedic surgeons opinion. I will advice you accept yourself the way you are and move on to other things.cheers.

    madam i can appreciate how you feel but I don't want to raise your hopes as the surgeon is likely not going to do anything for you at this age. you can go through the GOPD of any teaching hospital to be referred electively to an orthopaedic surgeon or send an email to findadoctor@kanpe.com for help with finding one. regarding regaining yourself confidence, you might wanna engage in capacity building activities, that way as you achieve them you will feel more happy with yourself and think less of your legs.also make a conscious effort not to compare yourself with any other person. I am sorry if I haven't been of as much help as you expected. take care
