If you’re like the rest of the world, and Make Me Heal, you’ve probably wondered how Victoria Beckham can stand tottering through everything from soccer games to shopping malls on her favorite sky-high stilettos and not suffer from incredible pain. It turns out that Victoria’s fashion forward footwear is about as comfortable as it looks, and the former Spice Girl now requires plastic surgery to undo the damage.
35-year old Posh is frequently quoted as saying she doesn’t believe in flats, and as she has only rarely been photographed in them, she seems to be holding true to her word.
“I beyond hate ballerina flats,” she says, “I can’t walk in them. Unless they’re on a ballet dancer doing ballet, I just don’t get it. I love heels.”
Unfortunately her love of 5inch and higher heels has given her severe bunions, which may require surgery that puts her out of her beloved Louboutins for weeks or even months.
A source tells the Daily Mail, “She is suffering from shooting pain from the bunions. Normally, she kicks off her shoes in the house, but she has been out so much recently in high heels that she is really feeling it.”
Victoria is reportedly doing stretching exercises to cope with her pain, but she may interested to know that some plastic surgery devices have also been found to be useful in women who wear heels. Some reports indicated that doctors are using wrinkle-relaxing Botox for off label use, not approved by the FDA to inject Botox into the metatarsal region of the foot and plumps up the ball of the foot, protecting the nerves and soft tissue.
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr David Shafer says, “Botox Cosmetic is not indicated for injections into the foot and I do not believe that it would help with wearing high heels.”
Other fillers are also being used off label by podiatrists to help patients deal with foot pain. However, these, as well as Botox have only been approved by the FDA for injection into the face.
Victoria Beckham has certainly been under the knife before(See Make Me Heal’s story on Victoria Beckham’s plastic surgery), but who knows if she’ll go through with bunion surgery.
Victoria’s feet are in bad shape and Make Me Heal looks forward to seeing how well Victoria handles the pain.
