The Meghan effect strikes again!
In the same way that there are trends in fashion and beauty, there are trends in cosmetic surgery too. And one of this year’s trends might have something to do with Meghan Markle’s feet. Yes, you read that correctly.[…]
And with liberal use of the zoom function, social media users began to point out that the Duchess has the tiniest of marks on her left foot, similar to scarring which might suggest anti-bunion surgery.
‘Meghan’s scar is 100 percent due to open bunion surgery,’ Kumar Kunasingham, a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at BMI Shirley Oaks hospital told The Sun at the time.
‘While the scar is only four-five cm long, this type of surgery can be very painful and it can take up to three months before patients can wear heels again.’[…]
Now, bunion surgery is listed among one of the top surgery trends for 2019, experts at The Private Clinic of Harley Street have told Marie Claire.
In 2019 I am expecting to see a huge surge in the number of women seeking treatment for their bunions,’ Andrea Bianchi, The Private Clinic’s orthopaedic surgeon said.
‘This could partially be down to the speculation around Meghan Markle‘s bunion treatment that hit the news last year – but it will also be driven by major advancements in the treatment for the condition.’
