Foot Lift Anyone?!

Ever consider a face life? Well, for some the foot is the new face. Some women are getting a "foot lift" in order to be able to wear their favorite high heeled shoes. Would you go that far? I know I would not. Would you have a foot lift? Wayne sent me an article from ABC news that I had missed. It is not enough to do the Stiletto Heel Workout. Surgery is the next step.

... just because you can't walk in those shoes is no reason not to wear them. Today more and more women are choosing not to change their shoes but to alter their feet. "The foot is the new face in 2006," says Levine. She told us the same materials routinely used to erase facial lines are now being injected into the ball of the foot to cushion it so you can wear your heels longer. And that's only one way to help women rise to the occasion. A woman named May Ling Lai told us, "I never would have bought these [shoes] if not for Dr. Levine. My first pair of Manolo Blahniks."

Do you really think that Manolo wants women to alter their feet to wear his shoes?

May wasn't kidding. She came to Levine with a crushing problem: Her toes were simply too long to fit into her beloved Manolos. Not to worry. … Levine had a solution. When women come in with toes that are too long, especially if they have corns on the joints, she generally suggests a surgical procedure to cut away the corns — and some of the bone. "It sounds drastic, but it's not," she reassured us. Well, you decide. Levine actually slices through the toes and then removes part of the offending bone. She showed us X-rays indicating the toe subsequently shortened to the appropriate length.
The article also says that the doctor who performs this surgery has also had it done and now has 300 pairs of very high heeled shoes. The fees are stilletto priced. It costs $1000 to plump up your soles and about $3500 to have your toe bones trimmed.

What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!
