I think it was said that they can grow to adulthood, but the rich people
who do this sort of thing don't want to spend months or years in
physical therapy dealing with the lack of tone, thus the Jacksonian way.

Though this raises the possibility of more ethical rich people who do
take the PT route.  The dilemma would be starker if such transplants
really aren't viable, though if they are that makes the Jacksonian
customers that more vile.
