Aesthetic Fifth Toe CorrectionThe fifth or baby toe have a variety of deformities that are not only cosmetically unattractive, but can be a major source of discomfort and shoe fitting problems. Because it can get the most pressure and rubs directly inside shoes or sandal straps more than any other toe, the fifth toe can be one's sole source of foot problems and is termed "the tyranny of the little toe." Besides being unsightly, there is also often redness, bursitis, pain and thick corns. Destruction of the nail and fungal infection can occur. Often the toe is curved and underlapping the fourth toe with the nail directed to the outside, rather than upwards. Surgically correcting this deformity with a derotation of the toe can successfully improve the appearance and position of the toe. When the toe is rigidly contracted with a sharp bone spur or inflamed bursal sac, the toe becomes fat, painful and interferes with shoe wear. Aesthetic correction of toe can be performed to reduce the deformity and relieve the symptoms.
Because no two feet are alike, each patient deserves individualized attention and a procedure geared towards their specific situation and goals may be proposed.
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.
