In this paper, we propose a novel facial fattening and slimming deformation method in 2D images that preserves the individuality of the input face by estimating the skull structure from a frontal face image and prevents unnatural deformation (e.g. penetration into the skull). Our method is composed of skull estimation, optimizing fattening and slimming rules appropriate to the estimated skull, mesh deformation to generate fattening and slimming face, and generation background image adapted to the generated face contour. Finally, we verify our method by comparison with other rules, precision of skull estimation, subjective experiment, and execution time.
