Gone are the days of cutting out the facial features of some of the world's most beautiful celebrities and pasting them on snapshots to determine what you'd look like if you had your favorite Hollywood star's nose or cheekbones. Instead, enter the era of online plastic surgery and FaceTouchUp.com (facetouchup.com), an advanced online virtual plastic surgery application. By uploading a photo and dragging the cursor, users can discover how they would look after cosmetic surgery within a few minutes.
Every year, millions of women, and an increasing number of men, undergo cosmetic surgery. In 2008 alone, more than 12 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures were performed. While plastic surgery is a common option for individuals who want to reverse the aging process, boost self confidence and reconstruct damage due to injury, the idea of cosmetic surgery can still cause anxiety among plastic surgery candidates who worry that their post-surgery appearance won't mirror their anticipated results. In recent years, plastic surgery applications have been key in helping to eliminate fears among plastic surgery candidates by giving them the ability to manipulate their own photos and access to unlimited 'after' photos for comparison purposes.
"One of the most common regrets of plastic surgery patients is not having done enough homework before they commit to the surgery," said Hisham Jawad, founder of FaceTouchUp.com. "In many cases, this lack of due diligence results in disappointment with the final result. To help give plastic surgery candidates an idea of what to expect, we've created a web-based virtual plastic surgery application that can be easily accessed from a personal computer, with no downloading required. It's an especially helpful tool for people who want access to the advanced technology that doctors use without having to incur any expense, as well as those who want to maintain their privacy while still considering whether cosmetic surgery is the right option for them."
FaceTouchUp.com, the latest innovation in online virtual plastic surgery applications, was developed by Pixineers Inc. with the help of some of the world's leading plastic surgeons. The developers' goal was to create a site that would enable web visitors to undergo virtual cosmetic surgery and give them a better idea of what results they can reasonably expect from surgical procedures. The software is typically offered in surgeon's offices and can cost patients hundreds of dollars. FaceTouchUp.com, however, is available to web visitors at no cost.
To use FaceTouchUp.com, web visitors simply upload a photo or open one of the sample photos available on the site in order to begin their online plastic surgery. By using their mouse, they can reshape and contour their nose to complete a virtual nose job. Once the desired results are achieved, users can then compare before and after photos using the Animation View or Side-by-Side View tools. Images can be then saved, printed, and if desired, shared on Facebook to get feedback from family and friends. FaceTouchUp.com was designed primarily for individuals considering rhinoplasty, however, the online tool can be used to help determine the result of cosmetic changes to other facial features, including the lips, chin, eyes, cheeks and ears.
As a testament to the application's professional grade, FaceTouchUp.com is used widely by the industry's top-rated and most respected plastic surgeons who use virtual cosmetic surgery applications in their offices and on their websites. The application can be branded for incorporation on surgeon's websites, and customized to facilitate appointment setting within the application. FaceTouchUp.com is available immediately for licensing across North America and Europe through Pixineers Inc.
FaceTouchUp.com is a virtual cosmetic surgery tool and intended to help users visualize different nose shapes on a face. Virtual cosmetic surgery does not take place of a consultation with a physician. The photos produced on FaceTouchUp.com are for illustrative purposes only and do not guarantee an actual surgical outcome.
