There is a growing demand for cosmetic surgery in the UK and the foot is no exception.
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 aned removing lumps to slim the toes or feet.
Procedures that make the foot more functional have long been associated with a more aesthetically pleasing foot. For instance, a bunion surgery straightens the foot and gives a more pleasing contour. Other surtgeries to correct hammertoes and bunions with surgical procedures that not only correct the deformity but also provide an aesthetic improvement. Many commongly performead procedures give the foot an improved appearance. The trick is balancing when surgery is appropriate for relief of symptoms versus for purely cosmetic purposes.

Bunion surgery generally involves an incision in the top or side of the big toe joint and the removal or realignment of soft tissue and bone. This is done to relieve pain and restore normal alignment to the joint. Small wires, screws, or plates may be used to hold the bones in place.
Long toes can be shortened and crooked toes can be straightened through surgery. Hammer toe is a common deformity causing toes to bend downward instead of pointing forward and surgery is often required to correct this.
