Would you ever have "Toe-Besity" surgery?
When patients seek out cosmetic surgery from New York-based Dr.Oliver Zong, they're often looking to remove fat, but not from theirbellies or thighs.
Zong is a podiatrist, and one of his specialties is slimming down people's fat toes -- "toe-besity," he calls it.
He's been in practice for about a decade, and when he started, toe reshaping was unheard of.
"When people first started asking, I said 'What?'" said Zong, who is surgical director at NYC FootCare. "We were mostly doing toe shortenings in the begining."
Now, he said, more and more people are zoning in on the smaller details of their feet, like the width of their toes.
For many patients, an odd-looking toe is a source of great embarrassment.
