Apparently, there is one more body part you should start to feel ashamed about–your feet. The latest plastic surgery craze brings the focus away from excess flab and ‘unsatisfactory’ noses to…the below-the-ankle parts of your body.
What kind of surgery does this entail? The most popular treatments involve shortening toes and injecting fat into foot pads, primarily to help women look and feel good in their high heels. It’s not just a cult phenomenon; according to ABC News, it’s a $45 million a year industry.
I have nothing against orthopedic surgery in general (and, for the record, the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society frowns upon these procedures because of the potential complications), but for purely aesthetic reasons, doesn’t a risky $3000 pinky toe tuck or foot facelift seem, I don’t know, just a little bit unnecessary?
Do you think foot reconstruction sounds absolutely crazy? Or would you ever consider getting one of these procedures?
