What is Cinderella Foot Surgery?

Cinderella surgery is a combination of several different procedures for example bunionplasty, bunionectomy and partial calcanectomy. Basically this surgery removes bunions, correct hallux valgus, shortening the toes and makes your foot smaller. The goal is to let you fit back into your favorite shoes and give them more easthetic look when you are not wearing anything.

Who Is a Good Candidate

There are no specific criteria identifying a good candidate for the Cinderella Procedure, but you should be in good general health. You may be asked to stop taking medications a few days before surgery, particularly if you take aspirin or other blood-thinning drugs. Also, you need to stop smoking before any medical procedure. Additionally, your surgeon will seek to ensure that you have realistic goals for your procedure, which is an important factor in your ultimate satisfaction as a patient.

What to Expect Before, During & After the Procedure

The Cinderella Procedure is actually a combination of procedures used together to achieve the desired results. Generally a local anesthetic called an ankle block is administered but sometimes the procedure is performed under a general anaesthesia. 

  • Correction of hammer or claw toes

  • Correction of hallux valgus (which is a very common foot deformity)

  • Medial or lateral bunion removal

  • Shortening of inappropriate long fingers (will give very good results with shoes fitting)

  • Lengthening of short metatarsal bone (the most common is the fourth metatarsal)

  • Removal of painful corns

  • Nail resizing

  • Wide foot narrowing (especially the anterior side of the foot)

  • Filler procedures (injecting fat or hyaluronic acid into the feet to make the sole of the foot more cushioning

You may also opt for additional surgeries to be performed at the same time. These might include toe-shortening, toe-lengthening, and fat pad augmentation or, as they’re nicknamed, the Perfect 10, the Model T and the Foot Tuck. After surgery your foot will be bandaged, and you will be taken to a recovery room where your blood pressure and heart rate will be monitored. Unless there is a problem, you will be permitted to go home after a couple of hours in recovery.  Post-operative swelling resolves in 3-6 months. At that time, you will be able to see that your foot is much narrower and, if you have opted for additional procedures, a little shorter, too.
