Postop swelling: Swelling of the soft tissues after surgery is normal. The swelling can be minimized by limitation of activities, avoidance of overhydration, elevation of the affected extremity, and a compression stocking. Swelling is usually the best upon arising in the morning, and worse at the end of the day. Once the swelling has resolved, the toes will return to a normal appearance.

Not permanent: When healing is complete and swelling is gone the wrinkles will disappear.
