Toe Shortening Surgery?
« on: February 09, 2018, 06:23:20 pm »
Hi,
Has anyone gone through Toe Shortening Surgery? If so, how do you feel about the results? What are the pluses and minuses about the surgery? How far out of the norm does your toe have to be to be considered a good option for surgery.

Thanks,
Ellen

How is toe-shortening surgery related to transitioning? (Honest question, I'm curious. Hope that didn't come off as rude!)

Really??? OMG, the medical industry is making a fortune off trans women. Toe shortening, hip bone implants, rib removal, vocal cord surgery. It's unreal! Please don't take offense but why on earth would you ever consider toe shortening surgery??? I'm sure it's got to be painful. How much time is anyone going to spend looking at your feet.

I have an aunt who had the last segment of bone removed from her second toe (on each foot) because she didn't like that it was longer than her big toe. To this day she just paints the skin on the end and pretends its a toenail.

That's all I have to contribute.

I imagine it's a procedure aimed to make one more feminine if your toes are extra large.

I don't know, but I think it's not much time off your feet. As I understand it, after the bone is cut out, titanium is put in to hold the toe together. Other than that I don't know much.

There are surgeons who will shorten toes, just not many of them. A google search will bring up a few names.

For us tall ladies with shoe sizes above 12 or 13, finding shoes that fit are a real problem. Often we just wear sandals or even men's athletic shoes.

Oh, interesting. Well, my best friend (natal female) has feet that are a few sizes bigger than mine. I mean, yes, I naturally have tiny feet but--feet come in all different shapes and sizes and I personally wouldn't invest in them. I doubt a trans woman has even been clocked by her toes, but to each their own!! xx
