Image import

You can import images from your computer hard drive, or from a device connected to your computer, such as a professional camera or a scanner.

Tabbed views

You can chose to display the original unmodified image only, the modified image, or a combination of both for efficient comparison of the before / after work. Note that zoom and scroll are synchronized between all the views. You can cycle trough the tabs with the keyboard left and right arrows.

Distortions effects

You can easily modify photos with your finger by stretching, growing or shrinking the desired areas to simulate photo realistic plastic surgery results. It is very easy to distort your pictures, and you will be able to simulate photo realistic plastic surgeries within seconds.

Here is a list of all the application's icons, and their meaning.

Smart saving

On the saving screen, you can specify if you want to save the currently displayed tab view, or the 3 tabs. If you chose to save the 3 tabs, the Plastic Surgery Simulator will create a folder containing: the original image, the modified image, and a combination of both. Additionally you can specify if you want the saved image to contain the watermark texts or not. If you chose to save your work as a .pss document, you will be able to resume you work later by opening it: a .PSS document is a document that contains coordinates of all your modifications on a specific image.


Watermarks are texts that will optionally appear over your saved images. You can enable or disable Watermark display on images when they are saved by clicking on the "Watermark" icon (see above the "Commands Icons"). There are 2 watermark zones : Top left corner (default text is “Before”), top right corner (default text is "After"). You can input any short text you want in the watermarks fields, accessible from the "Settings" icon.
