Foot reshaping : A cause for concern?

Aesthetic podiatry extends to more than pedicure and with a large number of podiatrists qualified to practise foot surgery concerns are mounting within the medical community regarding ethical uptake in cosmetic foot surgery. Seems demand for cosmetic procedures including liposuction of the toes and amputation as well as bunion reduction surgery have risen expotentialy and is now falling into the province of the surgical podiatrist. More and more clients are asking to have their feet reshaped to accommodate high fashion footwear. Not all foot surgeons are convinced that such procedures are ethically sound.
