Liz Lemon sleeps in socks and tells Oprah she hates her feet. Are you like Liz Lemon and have never let a man see your feet?
Sounds funny in the hit show 30 Rock but for many, it’s no laughing matter.
In the July 10th article ‘Toe-besity’ Surgery on the Rise, doctors disclose patients first came in looking to have their toes shortened and are now asking for more detailed cosmetic refinements.
In the article, one patient no longer wanted to hide his embarrassing toe and, “on top of being unattractive, the toe also caused discomfort.” And this is precisely where we come in.
Is it vanity or is there a compelling reason to relieve pain while also making the foot more attractive? In our practice, we find that almost all requests that may seem like they are cosmetic turn out to be structurally necessary for the long-term health of the foot, which naturally supports the ankles, knees and hips.
Take a look at our before and after photos to see some of the transformations that are possible.
It's easy to forget about your feet during the winter months because they are usually covered up with warm cosy socks, slippers or boots. But if you have any foot problems such as Toenail Fungus, Bunions, excessively dry cracked heels or Warts, now is the time to take care of them before the spring, before you pull out your sandals! Some foot problems can take weeks and even months to resolve. For example, if you opt for Laser Treatment to treat that stubborn toenail fungus, while the laser instantly kills the Fungus, it will take weeks for your toenails to grow out clear. Warts can take multiple treatments to eliminate as can severly cracked heels. And of course, if you have a bunion or anything else that requires surgery, you will need to allow time to heel and recover.
So, now is a good time to visit your podiatrist - make that call.
