Trying on Plastic Surgery for Size? There's an app for that

“Selfies” have just been given a new purpose. With the Plastic Surgery Simulator app, users can use photos of themselves to see what plastic surgery could do for them. This app allows users to simulate various plastic surgeries including removing bags from under their eyes, narrowing their face, modifying their smile, shaping their nose, and breast or buttock augmentation or reduction.

This free app works by uploading either a head or full body shot to the app. The user then simply uses his or her finger to modify any part of the picture. The app also shows a before and after image that can be uploaded to their social networking site called Befaft.com where users can rate and comment on the photos.
The Plastic Surgery Simulator app is a great tool to help with the decision to undergo plastic surgery or not. Users can try on different looks without any commitment before choosing what is best for them.
The app can be operated on the iPhone, iPad or Android smart phones and tablets. For more information about the Plastic Surgery Simulator app visit http://www.plastic-surgery-simulator.com/.
