The aim of this paper is to introduce a new deformation, namely, deformation of parameters of solution of integrable equations to develop surfaces from integrable equations. Using this deformation, the authors construct surfaces from modified Korteweg-de Vries (mKdV) and sine-Gordon (SG) soliton solutions by the use of parametric deformations. For each integrable equation, there are two types of deformations arising from parameters of soliton solutions of the corresponding integrable equation. The first one gives surfaces on spheres and the second one gives highly complicated surfaces in \(\mathbb{R}^3\). The SG surfaces obtained are not the critical points of a functional where the Lagrange function is a polynomial function of the Gaussian (K) and mean (H) curvatures of the surfaces. In fact, the authors obtain quantities such as the first and second fundamental forms, the Gaussian and mean curvatures of the mKdV and SG surfaces. They find the position vector of mKdV and SG surfaces using the immersion function (F) and furthermore, they provide the graph of interesting mKdV and SG surfaces.
