Cosmetic surgery isn’t restricted just for bellies,faces and breasts anymore,as people who are unhappy with their fat feet are willing to go under the knife to beat “toe-besity”.

According to ABC News,those who are fed up with their fat toes are opting for the procedure known as toe slimming,which is on the rise in the US.

One New York doctor,Oliver Zong,director of NYC FootCare,said that people were beginning to turn their attention to the smaller details of their feet as opposed to other parts of their bodies.

According to his website,the surgery offers everything from “toe tucks”,which is the shaving down of the pinky toe,the “toe slimming”,which slims the tips of toes where fatty deposits may reside,and “toe shortening”,which shortens the second toe if it’s longer than the big toe, reported.

The industry is now worth an estimated 45 million dollars in the US and can set patients back by 15,000 dollars.
