Using speculative augmented reality software, Digital Surgeon gives users the opportunity to create alternate versions of their own face.

The concept was created by New York based designer Simone Ferracina, and the software works by first scanning a persons body in great detail to generate a 3D baseline model for the mapping of surgeries. Then, the user can choose a specific surgical procedure or collection of surgeries to perform. Finally, the surgery is broadcast ro-optoelectronic lenses that are prompted by proximity and relayed in real-time to the viewer's field of vision.

Whether you're interested in enhancing or deforming the way you look, Digital Surgeon empowers you to control the appearance of your facial features and perhaps give you some insight into actual process of plastic surgery.
