Plastic surgery apps are a trend that has taken hold throughout Asia, a region where plastic surgery is so common, as many as a third of all women in some countries have had at least one procedure done. These apps allow people to try on new looks before settling on the changes they think are best for them.

How Plastic Surgery Apps Work

The field of plastic surgery has been full of innovation lately. You might think that these apps are just another version of FaceTune, but they have other features that make them unique.

First of all, you don’t simply photoshop your face into your ideal version of yourself. Rather, the apps scan your face and make suggestions on which improvements would best suit you. Second, these apps walk you through the process of getting surgery, suggesting plastic surgeons, helping you book appointments and even connecting you with financing options.

The Pros and Cons of Plastic Surgery Apps

Popular in Asia, plastic surgery apps suggest changes you can make while putting you in contact with plastic surgeons and financiers.

There are a lot of benefits to using a plastic surgery app. It allows you to test-drive your new look without actually changing anything, giving you a glimpse into your potential future. You can set appointments with ease and without needing to call the office. Certainly, access to financing is a great benefit, as is helping those in suburban and rural communities find highly qualified plastic surgeons.

However, there are downsides as well. The suggestions from these apps can encourage people to get surgeries they don’t want or need, and the algorithms may not be as good at predicting the final results as they claim.

Additionally, depending on who makes the apps, there could be incentives to promote less qualified surgeons or lead you to specific financing options that aren’t right for you.

If you are considering using a plastic surgery app, you should approach it as something fun. While you can bring the photos it creates along with you to your plastic surgery consultation, keep your mind open to the suggestions of your plastic surgeon.
