Cosmetic Foot Surgery

Cosmetic foot surgeryBunions, hammertoes, and corns are the three most common foot deformities being treated by cosmetic foot surgery. Our podiatrists treat these deformities using Minimally-Invasive surgical techniques so the patient is left with minimal to no scarring.

Many people are ashamed of their feet and having nice straight toes without corns can help your confidence and quality of life. All symptoms should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by your podiatrist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan to exclude any underlying serious condition.

Get Beautiful Feet

The best NYC podiatrist provides Minimally- Invasive and/or No-Scar bunion treatment and corn removal. Using cutting-edge surgical techniques, our podiatrists give you the best results and have you back in heels in no time! Most patients are able to walk home in a surgical shoe the same day as the surgical procedure! Recovery is typically between 6-8 weeks for bunion surgery and 4-6 weeks for corn/hammertoe surgery.
If you wear sandals, spend a considerable amount of time barefoot by the pool or at the beach, or just want to impress a partner, the idea of cosmetic foot surgery may not be that far-fetched. In fact, cosmetic foot surgery is on the rise. If it’s something you want to pursue, talk to the best-rated podiatric surgeon you can find in NYC.

Popular Podiatric Plastic Surgery Procedures

Cosmetic bunion surgery resulting in slimmer pain-free feet is the most popular procedure but other popular cosmetic foot procedures include:

  • Toe lengthening;
  • Toe shortening;
  • Fat injections into the pads of your feet;
  • Nail restoration;
  • Foot narrowing.

Like many cosmetic surgery procedures, foot surgery is requested typically by women who’re embarrassed by their feet or who believe that prettier feet can improve their self-esteem. Of course, it’s a lot easier to walk all day in four-inch heels when you don’t have lumps or bumps in your feet and when your toes aren’t pushing against your shoes all day.

Is Cosmetic Foot Surgery Right For You?

Cosmetic foot surgery is considered low-risk surgery, however, it still has risks, benefits, and alternatives that should be discussed and weighed before a decision is made.

Risks include swelling, pain, bleeding, infection, anesthesia reactions, deformity re-occurrence, and blood clots. A more thorough discussion on risks will be discussed in the office along with expectations and procedure-specific information.

If the foot deformity you are having surgery on is painful, it may be covered by health insurance! Just because it is a painful medical problem doesn’t mean you have to choose a surgeon who doesn’t emphasize a beautiful cosmetic result!


Once you’ve decided that cosmetic foot surgery is worth the cost and the risks, and your foot doctor believes you’re a good candidate, then you have some options to consider. Ideally, to best reduce your risks, you should:

  • Be in good overall health;
  • Not be a smoker;
  • Be at a healthy weight;
  • Have the ability to take a 1-2 weeks off work and not have long hours requiring standing during recovery.

The top NYC podiatrist may be able to combine your desire for an aesthetically pleasing foot with your needs for better functionality. With the use of the latest surgical techniques in endoscopic and laser surgical procedures, experienced foot surgeons pay closer attention to the appearance of your feet when treating foot problems such as:
