iPhone app predicts results of boob jobs
10 May 2011An iPhone app has been created that allows those considering breast implants to see what they would look like with bigger breasts. The iAugment app has been created by Elizabeth A. Kinsley, a plastic surgeon from New Orleans, and is free to download, making it easier and quicker than ever for women to get an idea of the difference breast enlargement surgery could make. But experts warn that this should be used as a bit of fun and should not replace the need for thorough pre-surgery consultations with a qualified surgeon. Users can take a picture of themselves – makers say pictures taken in a bra or bikini top work best - and virtually enhance their bust by up to three cup sizes. Creator Dr Kinsley said: “Breast augmentation can be a complicated procedure with women asking questions like "what will they look like?" or "what size is right for me". “This is designed to give them the best idea possible of how they might look after surgery. You can show your friends, your boyfriend or your husband and say "what do you think?’” She added. iAugment has already received more than 7,000 ratings since it was launched in Apple's App Store.
