Facial model reconstruction and surgical simulation are essential to plastic surgery in today's medicine. Both can help surgeons to design appropriate repair plans and procedures prior to actual surgery. In this paper, we exploit a metamorphosis technique in our new design. First, using metamorphosis and vision techniques, we can establish three-dimensional facial models from a given photo. Second, we design several morphing operators, including augmentation, cutting, and lacerating. Experiments show that the proposed algorithms can successfully create acceptable facial models and generate realistically visual effects of surgical simulation.
