Re: Permanent toe nail removal, can it be reversed?
I can understand that. I hated my feet for the longest time because of my toes and I grew up as a tomboy so I didn't care at first. Till middle school when the girly stuff hit me and I realized I never wanted to paint my toenails because I HATE my feet. I still don't like them, but I don't care anymore. That took years to work through though. Just like you, I wouldn't wear sandals or flip flops and it affected everything in the summer! So like TITCHOU said, check out where they are with the fake nail thing with a podiatrist and in the meantime, go to a nail salon for an acrylic nail and see if it can be done. They can make it look natural and yes, guys go all the time! My husband went today for a mani/pedi and a lot of girls like it when guys want to keep their hands and feet maintained! I'm sorry you are going through this! I, too, have had ingrown toenail issues in the past. I had the surgery to remove part of the nail, but not the whole nail. It will grow back, but I get regular pedicures and my nail girl helps me keep them cut out. Good luck and let us know how it goes!
