London, Jun 26 (UNI) Wanna see how you would appear after some nip and tuck? Check out the new website that claims to give a preview on your looks at the click of a mouse.
A new nose, smooth forehead and plumped up cheeks can all be yours just at the touch of a button.
Those too nervous to face the knife can also remove bags under their eyes, sculpt their jawlines and zap wrinkles and those too greedy to diet can see how they would look with a few pounds whittled off.
The 'Lift Magic' website is aimed at prospective plastic surgery patients who want an instant idea of how they would look if they went ahead.
The website shows how you would look after cosmetic treatments such as cheek lifts, nose reductions, lip augmentation or weight reduction.
But it is also attracting those with a little time on their hands who just fancy tinkering with what nature gave them.
Users load a digital photograph of their face on the site before choosing what they would like to be altered.
Options range from an eyebrow lift to a 'tear trough enhancement' which apparently works on the area between the inner corner of the eye and the nose.
Others on the menu include lip augmentation, nose reduction and jaw restoration.
Once they have chosen the work they want done, users hit the 'show me' button and, just seconds later, the image of a new, enhanced face pops up. The site then scrolls between the original picture and the retouched version to highlight the differences.
More than 60,000 women, and an increasing number of men, have cosmetic surgery each year in Britain.
The site is run by a Canada-based 'face visualisation' firm called Modiface.
It believes Lift Magic could help make it easier for patients to decide whether to have surgery. At the very least, it provides a little fun for the curious.
''The main benefit of the Lift Magic site is that it allows you to see a retouched version of your photo in literally seconds,'' said Modiface spokesman Andrew Collins.
'There is no calibration or tedious manual editing needed. You choose the options, press a single button and see the result. It's easy, fun and virtually effortless,'' Mr collins told the Daily Mail.
''For some procedures, such as facelifts or dermal filler injections, it can show you a relatively real result,'' he added.
The site is used by more than 30,000 tinkerers each month. Around 85 per cent are women.
It has also been a hit on Facebook. Users can add it as an application to their profile page so they can airbrush pictures of themselves.
Women considering cosmetic surgery can now see how they would look 'post-op' thanks to a new website which lets them carry out procedures on a photo of themselves.
The 'Lift Magic' site allows you to apply up to 14 different treatments to a picture so you can see how you would look before you fork out for a costly operation.
