Fashionista with club foot gets leg amputated to `wear high heels`
New York – A fashionista, who was born with a club foot, got her leg amputated so that she can wear high heels.
Mariah Serrano, assistant designer for American Rag underwent the painful procedure as she always dreamt of teetering around in gorgeous high heels”, the New York Post reported.
The 22-year-old said that the fashion rule states that one has to take off three pounds for every inch of your heels.
She added that she wanted to be a sexy teenager in high heels but knew it couldn’t happen.
Serrano began seriously considering amputation in 2009 after a specialist suggested that a prosthetic leg would be more comfortable and she could work better with heels.
