Putting Your Best Foot Forward with Cosmetic Foot Surgery

For some ladies, slipping on the perfect pair of stilettos may require sculpting the perfect feet to match. A growing number of women are going beyond the standard pedicure in favor of cosmetic foot surgery (also known as cosmetic podiatry) to improve the way they look and feel in their favorite shoes.

Referred to as the “Cinderella treatment” by one specialist, these minimally invasive procedures can be performed for the sake of beauty alone, or in conjunction with the treatment of an underlying medical condition.

Common conditions motivating patients to choose cosmetic foot surgery include:

  • Crooked or Hammer Toes – one toe angled toward the other toes instead of sitting in straight or toes bent in a claw position.
  • Bunions – a painful, bony bump protruding just below the big toe.
  • Corns and Callouses – uncomfortable thickening of dry  skin causing pressure and friction.

For each of these conditions, cosmetic foot surgery provides relief of discomfort and an improvement in the appearance of the feet.  Incisions are inconspicuous so that any scaring is not readily visible.

According to Dr. Nancy Kadel, MD, a foot and ankle surgeon at the University of Washington in Seattle, requests are also up from women seeking surgery to narrow their feet, shorten their toes or to receive collagen or silicone injected into the pads of their feet for great comfort in high heels. “These are surgeries done on structurally normal feet that are pain-free,” she said.

The recent increase in demand for cosmetic foot surgery has stirred some controversy among Podiatric specialists. Prompting a statement from the American Podiatric Medical Association cautioning that cosmetic surgical procedures pose risks similar to that of traditional surgeries.

Patients considering cosmetic foot surgery  are advised by the American Podiatric Medical Association to consult with a credentialed Podiatrist.  Any specialist performing surgery for medical or cosmetic reasons should have appropriate training and experience to properly perform the surgery and manage the post-operative care.
