Now, a website that shows you your post plastic surgery looks
London, June 25 : Want to know your post- cosmetic-surgery look without actually going under the knife? Well, then just log on to 'Lift Magic,' a website that provides an improved version of you at the click of a mouse.
'Lift Magic' offers a virtual makeover for prospective plastic surgery patients, so they can see how they might look after eye-bag removal, a nose job or a face-lift.
But the website is also attracting those with time on their hands, and has proved a hit as an application on the social networking site Facebook.
Users load a digital photograph of themselves onto the screen and can try out up to 14 different treatments.
Options include a cheek lift, lip augmentation, dermal filler injections and 'tear trough enhancement', which works on the area between the inner corner of the eye and the nose.
Once they have chosen from the menu of alterations, users hit the 'show me' button to see an image of their surgically enhanced face.
It is then possible to scroll between the natural and retouched version to compare the differences.
The site is run by a Canada-based 'face visualization' firm called Modiface.
The firm believes Lift Magic could ease the decision to have surgery.
"The main benefit of the Lift Magic site is that it allows you to see a retouched version of your photo in literally seconds... It's easy, fun, and virtually effortless," Telegraph quoted Andrew Collins, spokesman for Modiface, as saying.
