Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction

Bunions are a painful condition and an unsightly one. A bunion can impact your mobility, your self-confidence, and your overall quality of life.

If you’re ready to correct your bunion and find true relief from the pain and discomfort it brings you, don’t wait.

Long-Term Treatment for Bunions

Lapiplasty is an exciting advancement in the field of podiatry. While traditional surgery merely cuts and shifts the bone to correct a cosmetic bump, Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction does more – it corrects the entire bone in 3D, securing your foot’s foundations so you can recover faster and more effectively.

While timepoints and doctor’s orders will vary from patient to patient, here is what a typical recovery timeline from 3D Lapiplasty looks like:

  • Within days of your procedure, you should begin to put some weight on your foot.
  • Within the next 4-6 weeks, your foot will be in a boot, and you can return to daily activities.
  • At 6-8 weeks, you can transition back into comfortable shoes.
  • At 4-6 months, you should be able to resume any activity and wear normal footwear. 

While each patient will have a unique recovery timeline, most patients are back on their feet following Lapiplasty within 2-4 weeks. After 4-6 months, you should be completely readjusted to your regular shoes and back to the activities you love.
