  • Mod My Face with iSurgeon


    Yes, there's an app for everyone. And this one is probably meant for Heidi Montag.

    Who it isn't made for, however, is an an individual with low self esteem. That's according to some consumer advocates, angered by Apple's sanctioning of iSurgeon for the App Store. The controversial application in question helps one considering plastic surgery to evaluate what they may look like after a desired procedure.

    From Truth in Aging:

    Have you ever wondered what you would look like post-plastic surgery? Do you think about the shape of your nose or the fullness of your lips constantly? Do you own an iPhone or iPod Touch? If the answer to these questions is – YES! – then you might be in luck, because Board-certified, Miami-based plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer, has just released his much-anticipated app, iSurgeon.
    Since I'm not constantly preoccupied by the fullness of my lips, I haven't personally checked out this app. But in the eight weeks or so of its existence, I've read more than I care to know about it from those both for and against it. The app's proprietor, Dr. Michael Salzhauer, is the infamous author of “My Beautiful Mommy,” which raised the ire of many by proposing that children can be taught to "deal" with their mother’s plastic surgery.

    The app, which is getting far more attention than an application of its nature probably deserves, is promoted as serving 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.”

    Depending on whether you download the lite or pro version, iSurgeon has different levels of interactivity. (1) Game Mode gives you the opportunity to virtually don the plastic surgeon’s white coat and simulate one of four procedures to meet your avatar’s desires: Rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, or Brazilian butt lift.
    The above controversy is worth noting because the App Store is perceived to be a breeding ground this year for controversial apps intended by their designers to generate business for a wide array of professionals within their respective industries. The plastic surgeon behind this app will certainly make more cash off of new customers introduced to him from the app than he likely will from downloads of the app alone. If anything, this is just another example of the headaches in store for Apple as the company contends with opportunists looking for attention via the enormous and lucrative platform provided by the App Store.

    This definitely won't be the last controversial app to get noticed in 2010. But I promise it is the last time a "Brazilian butt lift" is discussed in this forum.

      lol what is next?

      Thought I would edit and add more to this.... as for Heidi Montag she is way to young for all of the stuff she had done.... now when you get to my age it is a different story!

      There is nothing wrong with plastic surgery. Tons of people are doing it every day now days. But there is a time in ones life you get it done and that is not when your young... and if you are young I could see gals getting their breasts done if they are 21 years of age.

      I watch the surgery channel and how they do makeovers on people and these are the things they say to do if you are really thinking of getting this type of surgery done... it is best to go for a consultation as this app will not be able to answer all of your questions and also there are no promises when one gets surgery done period.... and if one is thinking about this type of thing make sure you go to a board certified surgeon!

      This doctor is just trying to get his name out... his way of advertising! He must be desperate for business!

      Of course there is. Be happy with what you are. most plastic surgery leaves you far worse than you were before.

      Luckily my wife couldn't be improved in any way.

      Your right tooth fairy, plastic surgery gives people the rare opporunity to have their outer appearance reflect their inner appearance: fake

      You're forgetting about the type of Plastic Surgery to rebuild someones face if they, for example, get mauled by a dog. Or to change a birth defect or abnormality. There are plenty of valid reasons for plastic surgery other than a nip/tuck

      I can't agree with you on this statement as I have seen some that had plastic surgery that looked really really nice.... remember there are all kinds of plastic surgery they do today...

      Laser, dental, body, facial, eye lifts etc... etc....

      Naturally we should like the aging process but today many don't.

      I think we'll have to disagree on this.
      @feidhlim1986 came up with valid reasons for plastic surgery which I don't think anyone would disagree with, but for cosmetic reasons? Natural is better in 100% of cases I've seen, but if you prefer fake then that's fine. We're all different.

      because of the insecure 13 year olds who will buy this app. the same ones that buy "beautiful boobs". xD. or maybe that was a joke about how huge your cock is, i'm not sure.

      funny how the filter on this site works. it will filter. "****". but not the phrase. i will pound you mercilessly with my bacon rod until your your eyes pop out.

      The reason for doing this is simply for guys with a small speni and wants to satisfy their partners or whatever in a big way. Dig? It's actually being done for awhile now, but watch out aside from the cost of the surgery, you need to buy a new wardrobe. It now has to accomodate that new big addition in the front. Ya think?
