If you’ve ever wondered what you would look like with a bigger nose, smaller chin or breast implants, a new I-Phone app now lets you see.
Created by a south Florida plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer, this popular “iSurgeon” app is taking the world by storm. Anyone will now be able to see what they would look like after a particular cosmetic surgery procedure – all accompanied by very distinct sawing, screaming and grinding noises.
“They could do this in the privacy of their home, and if they were ready to take the next step, they could e-mail it to a plastic surgeon or make an appointment and have a realistic discussion about what’s possible and what isn’t,” Salzhauer told CBS News 4 in Miami.
Even if you don’t have an I-Phone, you can go online and test out a version of the iSurgeon app MTV is featuring on its website. The app allows you to “Heidi yourself,” referring to Heidi Montag who has admittedly had 10 plastic surgeries in one day.
Dr. Salzhauer doesn’t suggest going that far but says he believes plastic surgery is valuable, as long as it’s done within reason and through a board-certified plastic surgeon.
“It’s no different than getting braces to straighten your teeth or changing the color of your hair,” says the good doctor.
And while new technology is good, clinical psychologist Dr. Maria Rodriguez at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York says it’s important one doesn’t obsess over their body and that they should question any motivations they have for wanting to undergo a plastic surgery procedure…she also says if you want to “Heidi yourself” then you probably need to seek some counseling.
In the end though, Dr. Rodriguez says this app is for fun and designed to satisfy one’s curiosity on what they would look like after undergoing a plastic surgery procedure.
I-Phone users can easily download the app for their phones by searching for “iSurgeon” in the App store.
