1) Cankle Liposuction:
Excess fat deposits from the ankle area are removed with liposuction. Women, most often women of Asian descent, who naturally have wider calves due to muscle hypertrophy (an increase in size of muscle cells) are not candidates for cankle reduction surgery.

2) Toe Tuck:
Any corns are removed along with any thickened soft tissue (non-bony tissue) that is present beneath it. The toe is then straightened so that it is no longer prominent when placed into a shoe.

3) Toe slimming:
Thickened skin on pinky toe is removed, and the bone may be shaved or straightened.

4) Toe shortening:

Bone segment is removed. The procedure can prevent hammertoes and corns.

5) Toe lengthening:
The bone is cut, then stretched or fused with an implant. This also repairs over-shortened toes.

6) Foot narrowing:

Corrects bunions on both sides, sometimes before deformities occur.

7) Foot padding:
Fat or fillers are injected into the ball of the foot for added padding.

8) Flat foot procedure:
An implant is placed into the arch of the foot to correct flat-footedness. / Issue 159 - September 2018
