Plastic surgery preview? There are apps for that

If you want to see what you would look like after plastic surgery, well, there's an app for that.

Actually, there are two. One of the apps is called "Plastic Surgery and Plastic Doctor and Plastic Hospital Office for Barbies." It sparked so much outrage on social media, that iTunes removed it from the app store on Tuesday.

That's because the free app targeted girls as young as nine years old.

First Coast News decided to search the iTunes App Store and found a similar app called, "Plastic Surgery Simulator."

You take a picture, then change any feature you want, from your nose, to your body fat percentage and more.

So what do stylists think of the App? The beauty pros say it's a positive thing for customers.

"I think it's a great option for people for motivation so they can see what they look like, if they lost weight or if they grew their hair out before they make a commitment for a style change," Tiffany Fargo of Daniel James Salon said.

But, one grandmother said she would hate for her granddaughter to download it.

"If you are 17 or 18, you could probably deal with it better, but for a child who is nine or ten, if you want to change your look so much, I can only imagine what it would be like when you get older," said Gail Loria.

Like thousands of apps, the Plastic Surgery Simulator is free and it can be downloaded with just one click.
