Will the surgical correction of flatfoot improve its cosmetic appearance?

While it is not the primary purpose of the procedure, flatfoot correction surgery will also improve the appearance of your foot.

The surgical correction of flatfoot is performed to restore the function of your foot and to reduce pain. However, because the deformity of your foot will no longer exist after the procedure, the appearance of your foot will also become more aesthetic.
