Body Image: Do You Hate Your Feet Enough to Get Plastic Surgery on Your Toes?

Do you love your feet? I’ll be honest, I don’t exactly have a love affair with my toes, but you know what? I’m OK that I’ll never be a foot model. And hey, there are a lot more important things to worry about in life than, well, feet quirks. However, it seems that foot frustrations in the minds of a lot of people these days.

When it comes to body image issues, you may not think that feet could cause so much angst, but for some, they really do–so much so that they opt for invasive foot surgery to correct the look of their feet. The number of cosmetic surgery on feet have actually increased in the last year.

The most popular procedures include shortening toes, adding collagen to heels and even removing pinky toes (in order to fit into super-high stilettos). Ouch!

Many experts warn against such cosmetic procedures and recommend surgery on feet only when something is medically necessary, but many more surgeons are willing to sculpt and shape feet into works of art.

Is it just me, or is this a little a sad? Everyone’s feet are unique, and who cares if your toes are a little quirky, right?
