iPhone applications and similar pay (a little) to play functions are being considered the foundation of the Internet 3.0 economy. Now that economy is reaching into plastic surgery, with two recently introduced applications. One of them was launched in October, and is primarily an information-gathering tool. The designer notes that modern patients are more information-driven than traditional patients, and to supply them the application taps into a database of more than 1,000 questions and answers about plastic surgery procedures.
The other application is more of an entertainment-oriented application. Its primary function is to allow you to upload pictures of yourself or others, then see what might be the result from plastic surgery procedures like tummy tucks, breast enlargement, or lip augmentation. Although the promoters of the application say that it will give patients "a clear visual of what they would look like post-surgery," most likely the images are fairly imprecise and really are intended for entertainment purposes only.
If you would like to really have your questions answered or get an idea about what results you might be able to expect from plastic surgery, the best way is through a consultation with a plastic surgeon, like Dr. George Lefkovits.
