As cosmetic benefits of foot surgery are becoming more common place, more and more individuals with congenital foot disorders are also stepping forward to seek out the latest innovative corrective techniques. For those who suffer from overweight feet and toes and desire slimmer, more petite feet to accommodate their strappy stilettos, Dr. Oliver Zong introduces surgical options to get fat toes slim.
- The Toe Tuck: The Toe Tuck involves surgery of the pinky toe to make the toe slimmer. Often painful, unsightly corns on the pinky toe are also removed. The Toe Tuck allows for a better fit into stylish shoes especially if your pinky toes tend to get cramped in shoes.
- Toe Slimming: This procedure involves slimming of the tips of the toes where fatty deposits may cause the toes to look uneven.
- Toe Shortening: This procedure is most commonly for the second toe (next to the big toe) although any toe can be shortened. Like the hammertoe surgery, incisions are carefully placed between the toes so visible scarring is minimized. Dr. Zong has taken the procedure an extra step by placing his incision on the side of the toes so no visible scar is left. “It’s obvious that any patient concerned enough to undergo a toe shortening procedure would also prefer as minimally visible a scar as possible. With our incision there is no visible scar,” says Dr. Zong.
