May 3rd, 2007 · No Comments

Some people are willing to walk the line to walk the walk. Increasing number of women are resorting to surgery to be able to wear those fashionable stiletto shoes. According to this NY Times article, more than 50% of the doctors who are members of the American Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Society report having conducted cosmetic surgery or correctional surgery on women. Moreover, 90% of all women were shoes that are two sizes too small and 80% look into medical remedies for tight shoes – that is just stupid. These surgeries often lead to disastrous results – including pain in all the toes, inability to stand and walk etc.

The craziness doesn’t stop there, unfortunately. This fashion and shopping portal says in their fashionable shoes department, that collagen injections and even toe amputations are things women resort to, to fit into those fashionable Jimmy Choos and Manolo Blahniks! Toe amputation? Oh My God!!

Now one can get “foot facials,” with a salt scrub, “mask,” peel and massage. You could even get injections into the ball of their feet of a chemical called “Restylane” to cushion the blow of high heels. You can shorten, or lengthen you toes, round your heels and tailor your arches. This cbs news report on the trend mentions all this without a blink of the eye.
