During brachymetatarsia surgery, small incisions are made along the affected metatarsal bone, and pins are inserted into the bone. The pins feed into the device that you will turn to gradually lengthen the short bone.

After your surgery, the incisions will heal completely. Usually, after about a year, there is no or very minimal visible scarring. Keep in mind that some people may scar more than others. Please let us know if you are prone to keloids, as this condition could leave a scar after any type of surgery.
