A couple of years back there was an elective surgery that emerged that made toes look slimmer. With women wanting to fit into those designer shoes that are made on the smaller side, some would go that extra mile for the right fit. It is called ‘toe-besity’ and it is nicknamed for the perception of fat toes. Some Cosmetic Surgery Doctors call it ridiculous while others are fine with the idea as long as the result makes the patient happy.
Looks and Practicality in Plastic Surgery
The toe slimming procedure is not just for aesthetic reasons, it also helps those, who opt for the surgery, fit into whatever narrow or dainty shoe style that comes in every season. While something like toe shortenings have been around for a while, toe slimming has been fairly recent. Some plastic surgeons are fine with performing the procedure while some do not agree with it. One doctor has said, “I don’t think it’s ethical unless you’re having pain.” This type of procedure is elective and insurance will not cover it which the Plastic Surgery Price Range is hundreds to thousands of dollars. As with all medical and Plastic Surgery Procedures there are risks when going through with the toe slimming procedure such as “anesthesia, deformity of the toe if the surgery is not done right, a risk of reoccurrence and the risk of surgery in general. It’s trauma to the foot.” While the toe slimming surgery is available, there is no forecasting whether it would rise in popularity.
