Fashion has long had an uncomfortable history. From foot binding and corsets to modern-day plastic surgery, some people will do nearly anything to stay beautiful and fashionable. A recent trend has people running to plastic surgeons to have operations – on their feet! Recent studies show that in order to accommodate the ever-increasing height of high heels, some women are getting special surgeries for their feet. These include "toe jobs" and fillers injected into the balls of the feet. While high heels are not new, the spikes have gotten longer over the past few decades. One study showed that more women are wearing heels that are 5" or taller on a regular basis.
Over the past few years, several doctors have declared high heels to be dangerous for your health. They state that it is not natural or healthy to wear shoes that are narrow for your feet and place so much pressure on the balls of feet. Despite the warnings, women are turning to plastic surgery to make the wearing of high heels more bearable. Are you thinking of getting plastic surgery?
