Aesthetic Bunion CorrectionThese are not merely unsightly bumps on the side of the foot. Bunions are the quiet joint killers. Although typically painful with redness and inflammation, this condition can have no symptoms for many years. During this time, the damage is being done as one of the most important joints in the foot becomes deteriorated and worn away. The cartilaginous joint surface that you are born with cannot be effectively replaced and technology to achieve this is still some time away. In the meantime, the cartilage is progressively eroded as the deformity continues to grow and pain usually follows. However, often the most disturbing aspect of this problem is the aesthetic appearance of the foot and inability to wear the desired shoes. Conservative treatment often includes wearing silicone bunion shields, wide unfashionable shoes and occasionally injections of anti-inflammatory medication. Unfortunately, since this is a fixed structural deformity, conservative care can only go so far and surgery is generally recommended. Most bunions become painful and irritate the foot inside shoes at some point and being proactive at preventing further deterioration is usually the best decision. When taking this into consideration, an aesthetic result is of major importance. Conventional bunion surgery has been performed for decades. Previously, little attention has been focused on the cosmetic result, consideration for the patient's ease of recovery and post-operative pain. Using the state of art in fixation, aesthetic incision placement and modifications of time tested surgical techniques, Dr. Zeetser has been successfully performing these procedures and changing people's lives one foot at a time. Patient's typically can ambulate the same day. All fixation is hidden and does not usually need to be removed. Gone are the days of railroad track incision scars on the top of the big toe joint, having wires or pins protruding through the skin. Casts are almost never necessary and pain is minimal to none. Contrary to popular belief and what people may tell you, bunion surgery does not have to be painful and debilitating. Compare your result to the typical bunion surgery horror story!
Aesthetic Foot Surgery by Award-Winning Podiatrist Dr. Vladimir ZeetserBecause everyone deserves beautiful feet!!
Let's face it, image is important and cosmetic surgery is here to stay. With television shows idolizing young hip plastic surgeons and reality shows chronicling patient experiences, it is clear that people are obsessed with beauty and glamour. Beautification of the feet has arrived and now being beautiful from head to toe has a new meaning!
Aesthetic foot surgery can be performed strictly for cosmetic reasons, but the benefit is twofold. Besides an increase in the attractiveness of the foot, function is generally improved and/or restored. Conservative care should be considered, but often is impractical and temporary with aesthetic surgery being the best definitive option. A more innovative and refined approach, using new modifications to time tested procedures coupled with the latest in technology is what sets aesthetic foot surgery apart. This typically leads to quicker and more ambulatory recovery periods, generally improved cosmetic appearance with minimal scarring and minimal pain. All procedures are done on an outpatient basis with the patient going home and usually being able to walk the same day.
Meticulous dissection and incision placement can be learned. An eye for aesthetics and attention to detail cannot. Anyone can claim to perform aesthetic foot surgery, but only few can succeed. Dr. Zeetser is at the forefront of innovative and progressive surgical procedures that can effectively correct a variety of conditions using state of the art implants and the latest techniques.
Cosmetic foot surgery has become much more popular over the past several years and for the best outcome, it is important to be evaluated by a qualified surgeon. Physicians who debunk it do so because they achieve less than optimal results. Don't be a bad cosmetic foot surgery statistic. To obtain an aesthetic and functional result, call Dr. Zeetser for a surgical consultation. Regain your self-confidence!
Note: All surgical procedures anywhere on the body carry some degree of risk and you are encouraged to use all sources available to you to research your condition and treatment options. However, Dr. Zeetser has done everything possible to refine his procedures to avoid the most common complications and pain. Conscious sedation with local anesthesia rather than general or spinal anesthesia removes the majority of the risk. Patient's wake up pain free and feeling as though they had a restful nap and are unlikely to experience headaches, nausea, vomiting or throat pain, common to general anesthesia.
