How to change the Shape of something

ok - let me try to explain my problem:

what i have a body like the head, the nose, the eye of a person, the belly or a car a house whatever and i dont like the shape.

i've seen lot of people making complete bellys disappear, changing the complete shape of the eyes or the hair.

how do i achieve something like this, and still make it look real (transforming, liquifying mostly destroys the texture of the subject)

thx already

Well, one option could be to replace the element you don’t like with a different one. This can sometimes be easier rather than trying to modify the existing element (especially in some restorations where the image may be badly damaged or missing information).

How extreme a change are you talking about? For cosmetic changes such as shrinking noses or chins or making eyes a little bigger work fine for liquify or transform.

If your transformation requires extreme expansion of a feature, then the texture gets stretched which makes it look smoother--in that case you may need to use the pattern maker to recreate the texture.

Can we have a more specific example?
