People going in for facial reconstruction are never sure how the end result will be. Though most are happy with the results, some are left disappointed. But this need not be the case now. This is because of the enterprising nature of a 20-year-old student of the University of Toronto. Alireza Rabi added some new codes to the facial-recognition software created by his professor, Parham Aarabi, the head of UofT's Artificial Perception Laboratory, to develop a revolutionary software that can use actual photographs to show a person how he will look after plastic surgery. Further research is still being done on this project.

Product review

a. This is a new software to help people see how they will look post plastic surgery.
b. This software has the ability to recognize a face and its special features in a second.

e. A menu on the site allows the user to choose hair, eyes, lips or the whole face.
f. This is an intelligent system that learns from its own attempts over time.
g. The entire project was developed in four stages - to create algorithms that recognizes facial features in a second, to create a software that works well in high-traffic zones like the Internet, to let surgeons work with its beta version and give feedback and to create a commercial product.
h. The beta version of this software is available online at
