Cosmetic Foot Surgery May Not Lighten Your Step

November 14, 2005

The recent rise in cosmetic foot surgery is very risky, according to medical professionals. Some surgeries include shortening of toes, narrowing of feet and injecting the fat pad with collagen to alter the appearance of feet and enable them to fit better into certain kinds of shoes.

“The public needs to be aware of the risks associated with these procedures,” warned Glenn B. Pfeffer, American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society president. “Complications can include infection, nerve injury, prolonged swelling of a toe and even chronic pain with walking.”

Experts said because ill-fitting shoes are most often the cause of forefoot deformities such as bunions, hammer toes and neuromas, better-fitting shoes would be a better choice. More info: www.FootCareMD.com.
