Plastic surgery for ... toes!

If earlier women were looking to remove fat from their bellies or thighs, now they go for surgery to slim down their toes.

Some podiatric specialists stand against the surgery, warming about various risks, including the risk of anesthesia, infection, deformity of the toe if the surgery is not done right, a risk of reoccurrence and the risk of surgery in general.


However, it's all about the shoes. More and more women are surgically transforming themselves into Cinderella, shortening their toes to squeeze into smaller size or removing 'fat' to squeeze into thin shoes.

The surgery entirely elective, meaning insurance companies won't cover the cost of the pricey procedure. Prices range from the hundreds up to the thousands of dollars. Americans spent $10.4 billion on cosmetic surgery in 2011.
