Toebesity: Would You Cut Off Your Pinky Toe for Cuter Feet?

You get regular pedicures. You have serious love affairs with Jimmy, Manolo, Christian and Stuart. You want your feet to be as cute as possible. How far would you go? Plastic surgery?

The Trend: The craze sweeping plastic surgery offices lately are women who want their feet to look as cute as the rest of them. Procedures range from the removal of bunions and hammertoes to “foot facials” that involve exfoliation and chemical peels. You can get Restylane, collagen or fat injections in the ball and/or heel of the foot to make it more comfortable to wear high heels for longer periods of time. Not extreme enough for you? Other procedures include having toes lengthened or shortened, foot narrowing or liposuction for the foot. Some women are having pinky toes removed altogether so it doesn’t ruin the line of their shoes.

Our Take: Who cares about wrinkled tootsies? We’d rather spend our hard earned cash on a chemical peel for our face, not for our feet. And collagen injections? The sound of being comfortable longer in stilettos is appealing, but that’s why we wear Foot Petals. As for toebesity, we’re beyond obsessing about something so minute (we’ve got BIGGER fat deposits to worry about) and for goodness sake, that pinky toe is crucial to a great looking pair of sandals.

SheFinds Asks You: How far would you go for cute feet? Is plastic surgery for the feet any different than other types of plastic surgery or is it going too far? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
