Ugly, ugly, ugly
I had an operation in 1990 by a 'doctor' who subsequently sells Herbalife!

The operation was to remedy ingrown toenails and I had both left and right-wedge incisions. However, the 'butcher' who performed the operation managed to do such a 'good' job that I am now totally embarrassed by my toes.

Is there a way of 'transplanting' toe nails?

Sadly once the nail is gone it is gone your only way out is to use acrylic overlays, and that also has its share of issues as this can cause fungal infections of what is left.
