It seems the same type of thing has been around forever. I'm sure the old people are still using some of the products, just like in the olden days of old school TV shows and movies. And, you can see that I haven't heard of any new "new" methods for getting pretty feet. And, I am sure that in old days, it didn't matter whether the doctor knew how to get the feet to look better or not. The most important thing was to find a good doctor who knew how to cure them. The last thing that you want to do is to go to a doctor and ask them to get rid of your foot or foot deformities by removing some part of your foot. I can assure you that this is a bad idea.
I have been following the topic of foot care and have noticed that people who have a lot of problems with foot deformities are usually very dissatisfied with the way their feet are looked after. For example, I know a man with severe foot deformities that have led him to the brink of suicide. I also know a woman who wants to have her foot removed and it has been a disaster for her. She has tried everything, including wearing special shoes for years.
