Cosmetic Foot Surgery Riskier Than Other Cosmetic Procedures: NY Podiatrist


 


Experts caution that [cosmetic foot surgery] is riskier than some other treatments, including surgeries such as neck lifts. “You have to be very careful when you remove any bone or change the structure in any way, because it can affect your balance, the way you walk, and your way of life,” says Dr. Rock Positano, director of the non-surgical foot service at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Positano warns that opting for surgery can lead to weight gain and restlessness thanks to the weeks or months of recovery time spent in a wheelchair, and if complications arise, a total lifestyle shift. “We see 10 to 20 patients per year who have developed clinical depression because they can’t stand or walk around,” Positano says. “People will say it’s no different than a nose job or a face lift, but we say, ‘You don’t walk on your face!’”
