Women Are Getting Toe Reductions To Fit Into High Heels

Peggy Siegal a self-published Author wrote the book "How to Look Like Me at 70." In the book she points out 'toe reductions' from a specific doctor friend. 

Siegal writes in the guide,

“Dr. Levy guarantees relief from corns and bunions. If you clock as many miles as I do running up and down the red carpet, corns are a major concern.”

Levy, of NYC’s Park 56 Podiatry, told the New York Post that the procedure Siegal refers to in her book isn’t quite a 'reduction.' It's actually straightening out toe bones if a patient has a hammertoe, and removal of corns and other deformities. Hammertoes can cause pain, especially if the bent bones are jammed into too-small shoes, but surgery is often elective, performed so a patient has better-looking feet and prettier shoe options.

Despite individuals doing this, experts warn that the procedure is riskier than some other treatments and advise individuals to search for roomier footwear instead.
