Bunion Surgery using Bikini Incision

If non-surgical treatments fail to relieve bunion pain, and when the pain of a bunion interferes with daily activities, discuss the surgical options and procedure with our foot and ankle surgeon. Bunion surgery is performed using bikini line incision, which improves both the feel and look of your feet. The procedure is performed in a surgical center using local anesthesia. Following the surgery, patients can expect a minimal amount of pain. While this discomfort can be managed using pain medications, many patients find that it is tolerable without medication as early as the next day after surgery. Patients can expect slight to no visible scarring. For the first eight to nine weeks of the healing process, patients will see a small scar at the incision site. In approximately a year, patients will see virtually no visible scarring. (See description of bunions under conditions.)
