Toe cosmetic surgery gaining traction
For recent years, getting nipped and tucked has become a common staple in the field of medicine. No longer is it unusual to see surgeries designed to re-shape and transform faces, midsections and rear-ends.But some people are walking into doctors offices asking for more. In fact, they want their toes enhanced, slimmed down or even plumped up. It's a growing figment within surgical procedures called toe cosmetic surgery.

On Wednesday's "Focus @ 4," we'll explore the buzz behind the trend as well as its possible side effects.
