PODIATRIST STATES THAT COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY IS TOO RISKY

DR. KEVIN MOLAN, A PODIATRIST IN CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA STATES, "CASUALLY CALLED STILETTO OR COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY, THE PROCEDURE INVOLVES REMOVING A CYLINDER OF BONE FROM THE TOE, SLIMMING DOWN ITS LENGTH, OR INJECTING FILLERS TO ADD PADDING."

PODIATRIST MOLAN STATES,  "THE TOES ARE BEING SQUISHED TOGETHER  AND IT'S IRRITATING, PARTICULARLY THE PINKY TOE.  NO SHOE IS WORTH ALL THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS PROCEDURE..  FOOT BONES COULD BE DAMAGED DURING SURGERY OR BECOME INFECTED, REQUIRING ADDITIONAL BONE REMOVAL.  IF A TOE IS SHORTENED TOO MUCH, THE BONES MAY NOT FUSE.  YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE A FLOPPY TOE, A TOE THAT HAS NO INTEGRITY, IT JUST WIGGLES AROUND."

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WOULD NEVER EVER CONSIDER COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY AS WE BELIEVE IN CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE.  AVOID SURGERY AND MEDICATIONS AT ALL COSTS.  MOST RESPECTED PODIATRISTS, CHIROPODISTS, FOOT SURGEONS, FOOT DOCTORS AND FOOT SPECIALISTS CONSIDER COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY TO BE BORDERING ON THE UNETHICAL.
