A bunionette is the bump on the outside of your foot. Or a “baby bunion” as most patients call it. Cosmetic surgery is useful when the patient has a bunionette that bothers them but does not cause pain. A bunionette can alter the look of your foot and make it hard to wear sandals or go barefoot in front of others. It can also make shoes fit poorly.
About the Procedure
Cosmetic bunionette surgery is a procedure that can straighten the bunion to improve the shape of your foot and make shoes fit better. Depending on where the problem area is the surgery may be able to be performed right here in the office! Don’t let a bunionette keep you from wearing sandals and being barefoot. Call us or schedule an online appointment here at Lexington Podiatry with our cosmetic surgeon.
Most of the surgical techniques used in our office can be done under local anesthetic and you can walk out of the office that day!
