Shocking Cosmetic Procedure... For Feet

How far would you go in pursuit of style? Would you surgically alter your foot in order to wear high-heeled, pointy-toed shoes?

The "Cinderella Procedure" makes feet narrower while correcting bunions. You can also have a toe-shortening procedure that will allow you to wear narrower, pointy-toed shoes without crushing your toes. Or how about taking fat from your abdomen to inject into the balls of your feet for extra cushioning while wearing high heels?

Podiatrist Ali Sadrieh, of Beverly Hills Aesthetic Foot Surgery, is quoted in The Wall Street Journal as saying, "It's unrealistic to tell women not to wear high heels. I came up with procedures that allow the women to function, pain-free, in the real world."

Wow.

It is one thing to have corrective foot surgery for bunions and other painful foot conditions. It is quite another to do so for the sake of style. Surgery always comes with a certain amount of risk.

Perhaps I am hopelessly out-of-touch with the fashion world, but why on earth would anyone subject themselves to these procedures for the purpose of wearing punishing, impractical shoes? The fashion "experts" decide these torture devices are sexy so folks line up to have their toes shortened and their feet narrowed... something is very wrong with this picture.

It is not always the case, but often enough, it was the wearing of those torture devices that exacerbated the foot problems in the first place.

Women's shoes are notoriously poorly designed, forcing the feet into unnatural positions and with little support. Some women will endure great pain in order to stuff their feet into narrow designer shoes. Pain for beauty is a price they are willing to pay.

The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Position Statement on Cosmetic Foot Surgery:

"Surgical procedures of the foot and ankle are generally performed for relief of pain, restoration of function, and reconstruction of deformities. They may have the additional benefit of improved appearance. Surgical procedures performed solely for aesthetic purposes carry risks similar to those performed for more traditional reasons. Patients considering surgery of the foot or ankle, whether for medical or aesthetic reasons, are advised to consult a member of the American Podiatric Medical Association. Podiatrists performing surgery for medical or aesthetic reasons should have appropriate training, experience, and credentials to properly perform the surgery, manage the post-operative care, and treat the possible complications."

Watching women jam their feet into designer shoes is painful to witness. As I wrote in an earlier post, regularly wearing high heels

• alters the anatomy of the calf muscles and tendons;

• can cause tripping and falling, which can lead to ankle sprains and breaks;

• may create foot problems like bunions, hammertoes, and nerve damage;

• puts stress on the back and knees;

• and causes Haglund's deformity, otherwise known as "pump bump," that occurs when straps of high heeled shoes dig into the tissue around the Achilles tendon.

We can't escape the fact that high heels are considered sexy... and sex sells. But, really, why do women subject themselves to this torture? I admit to having a few pairs of high heels myself, although I rarely venture out in them. I can't imagine wearing shoes that are too narrow or squeeze my toes. Personally, I have to feel good to look good.

I am certainly not in a position to judge other people... and we do live in a free society. I just don't understand it.
