Plastic Surgery Via Your iPhone

January 15, 2014 2 min read

It seems you can do anything with an iPhone these days with the hundreds of thousands of apps in the app store.  Around 200 of those apps are over 200 free body and face morphing apps.  They aren't "hey this is what you can look like after serious diet and exercise" apps.  The apps are designed so that users can perform surgical procedures and view the end results.  Some even have a feature to allow users to share the photos so that others can comment on the before and after shots. Screenshot.261966.1000003 It only takes a couple clicks or touches on the screen to apply the morphing tools to change faces and bodies.  Dr Paul Harris of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons spoke out about the proclivity of these morphing apps to the press and said that the apps are giving rise to an insatiable appetite for surgery and they give rise to the belief that the changes on a screen are easily replicated by surgical procedures. Dr Harris went on to say that, ‘It trivialises the impact and significance of surgery, which is life changing and permanent.’ images Research into the use of these apps has found that many of the users are young people who are using the technology for fun rather than actually thinking about surgery and many are facing pressure to have the procedures done.  With the global plastic surgery market worth around $13 billion annually its easy to see why clinics and doctors would want to promote these smartphone apps. Worryingly is the trend in the rise in young people using the morphing applications and posting altered photos of themselves.  In an increasingly image conscious society it is simply not healthy for young people to have access to such technology where the underlying theme is, "You're not beautiful, let us make you beautiful.  See here's what you would look like."

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
