Impact and Detection of Facial Beautification in Face Recognition: An Overview

Participants : Antitza Dantcheva, Christian Rathgeb [Hochschule Darmstadt] , Christoph Busch [Hochschule Darmstadt] .

Facial beautification induced by plastic surgery, cosmetics or retouching has the ability to substantially alter the appearance of face images. Such types of beautification can negatively affect the accuracy of face recognition systems. In this work, a conceptual categorisation of beautification was presented, relevant scenarios with respect to face recognition were discussed, and related publications were revisited. Additionally, technical considerations and trade-offs of the surveyed methods were summarized along with open issues and challenges in the field. This survey is targeted to provide a comprehensive point of reference for biometric researchers and practitioners working in the field of face recognition, who aim at tackling challenges caused by facial beautification. This work was published in IEEE Access [18].
