Feet need more fat, grafting may be solution
from The News-Sentinel
A News-Sentinel reader wrote the following question to Drs. Mehmet Oz and Mike Roizen, "I am young, 5 feet 6 inches tall, weigh 129 pounds, and don't have diabetes. But because of unlucky genes, I have severe atrophy of the plantar fat pads on my feet. You can see the bones of my feet pressing against my skin. Podiatrists tell me there's no treatment other than custom orthotics and shoes. They're not working. I have read about injecting fat and using “GraftJackets.” Do they work?"
