It seems like everyday brings a new iPhone App, but never has the world seen something quite like this. Dr. Michael Salzhauer, author of “My Beautiful Mommy,” a children’s book explaining the phases of plastic surgery, introduces iSurgeon.

iSurgeon is an innovative App that combines personal image modification with high tech gaming features. According to Dr. Salzhauer, “iSurgeon serves a dual purpose, offering those interested in cosmetic surgery treatments a clear visual of what they would look like post-surgery, while also providing a fun entertaining game tool that allows the user to play the role of a plastic surgeon.”

New York, NY (January 5, 2009) – The new age of technology has revolutionized the way people communicate, socialize, and pass the time. One of the most popular technology tools utilized by everyone from magazine editors to high school kids is image modification. The use of photo editing programs has created a new “instant makeover” obsession: people want to see how they would look with new hair, larger breasts, or an improved nose.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer, author of famed children’s book “My Beautiful Mommy” is introducing the most advanced beauty makeover App to the iTunes store: iSurgeon. Recently debuted in December 2009, iSurgeon is an innovative App for the iPhone/iPod Touch, which combines personal image modification with high tech gaming features.

According to Dr. Salzhauer, “the iTunes App Store was lacking a truly useful and well-designed beauty makeover App. iSurgeon delivers on the promise of realistic photo alterations while also allowing users to partake in plastic surgery games playing the role of a surgeon.”

iSurgeon features two modes: Game Mode and Advanced Surgery Mode. Both include procedures Dr. Salzhauer offers in his own Miami practice including: nose jobs, breast augmentations, cheek implants, tummy tucks, liposuctions, face lifts, lip enhancements, and ear reshaping. For a limited time, the iSurgeon App’s lite version is available for FREE and the pro version retails for $0.99. iSurgeon will soon retail $0.99 for the lite version and $1.99 for the pro version.

“iSurgeon serves a dual purpose, providing those interested in cosmetic surgery treatments with a clear visual of what they would look like post-surgery, while also providing a fun entertaining game tool” says Dr. Salzhauer.

Game Mode

The Game Mode gives you the opportunity to play a plastic surgeon, “operating” on any of the four pre-programmed images to enhance their cosmetic appearance. Before each “surgery” procedure, users can tap the “hint” button on their screen to view an image of their “patients” desired results. The goal of the game is to emulate the desired look as closely as possible. Using the iPhone/iPod Touch’s touch screen capabilities, the user will be able to modify the subject’s physical appearance, scoring points for each successful enhancement. Game Mode is complete with realistic sound effects.

Advanced Surgery Mode

Long gone are the days of staring in the mirror wondering what you’d look like with a smaller nose or fuller lips! During the Advanced Surgery Mode, you can modify images taken with your iPhone/iPod Touch or images already stored in your phone of yourself or friends. Within seconds, you can see what you would look like after various cosmetic surgeries without leaving your front door. Available at your fingertips, the Advanced Surgery Mode provides results in seconds. Additionally, Facebook and email are conveniently built into the App allowing you to quickly share results.

I sincerely hope that this will not worsen body image issues that women have. I find the app’s effects scary.

We all are having different mind sets about cosmetic surgery. Some consider it as an enhancement to beauty while some don’t think so. Everyone has his or her own views. Basically Cosmetic surgery in Miami is all about getting rid of damages like scars or any birthmarks.
