Cinderella Foot Surgery is a cosmetic foot procedure for people with a splay or spread foot. The conditions that usually cause this problem include a bunion deformity on the inside of your big toe as well as a tailor’s bunionette that affects the little toe. The feet gradually spread and cause footwear difficulty and pain when wearing closed shoes.

This surgery is designed around those with abnormally wide feet, bunions or hammertoes, and is associated with gradually worsening foot deformities affecting the forefoot, with associated pain when in footwear. There is a strong genetic link and hypermobility of the ligaments associated with the development of this foot problem.  

Cosmetic foot surgery can help by firstly eliminating the sources of chronic pain or deformity and secondly, reshaping the feet for aesthetic appeal, often resulting in smaller, slimmer feet with a reduced shoe size.  These procedures provide support to the foot through the lengthening or shortening of the toes, shaving off bunions or excess bone and removing lumps to slim the toes or feet.

The procedure takes about one hour per foot and can be performed under general or local anaesthetic. After the Cinderella Foot Surgery, the patient will have minimal mobility in the treated foot and should not put weight on it for 10-14 days. It not required to wear a cast; however, a special shoe will be provided for 2-3 weeks. 

What to expect

Free Consultation with a Patient Advisor

We offer a free, no-obligation 30-60 minute consultation with one of our Patient Advisors. They will work with you to understand your objectives and the results you want to achieve, talk you through the procedure and answer any questions you may have. If you decide that you would like to proceed to the next step and see a surgeon, your Patient Advisor will be happy to arrange this for you. At this point, you will be required to pay a consultation fee. 

Surgical Consultation

The next step is for you to meet your chosen surgeon at the Cadogan Clinic. Your surgeon will use this time to make a comprehensive medical assessment of you, your condition, and your expectations before making a recommendation and personalised treatment plan for you. You will then discuss the outcomes you can expect to see and ask any questions.

The Procedure

On the day of your procedure you will be welcomed at the Cadogan Clinic by your Patient Advisor and dedicated nursing staff. Following a brief medical check, you will meet with both your surgeon and anaesthetist to run through the details of your procedure one final time and answer any last questions you may have.

Recovery

After the procedure, you will recover in the capable hands of our aftercare team. As we are a day-case facility you can expect your recovery to be complete within 2 to 3 hours. If your surgeon is happy with your results, you will be able to be discharged from the Clinic the very same day. In some cases patients may wish to stay locally in our exclusive partner hotel the day before or after your procedure in order to be close to their surgeon. Talk to us about these options if this is for you. 

After Care & Support

Our care and support continues in the days and weeks following your procedure with our complimentary aftercare programme. This comprised of a series of appointments made with your surgeon and nursing team to monitor your progress and recovery. They will also introduce you to several scar minimization techniques and bespoke products to aid your progress. Our team are also on call to answer any questions you have around your surgery at any time you are concerned.
