I have a second toe that is longer than my big toe. It causes alot of pain when I wear heels and any kind of closed toe shoes. Sometimes, my toes get swollen, red, and pulsing with pain. I am also devoloping spots on the tops of my toes. Should I go for a toe shortening surgery? What are the pros and cons of this procedure?

Toe shortening surgery
Thanks for your question -
You should seek input from a podiatrist or an orthopedic surgeon with experience in foot and ankle surgery.
Typically plastic surgeons do not perform this procedure.
I hope this helps.
