You need to create blend shapes- that is probabbly the easiest solution for you.

create duplicates of your model- edit their shapes- select all of them and then select the model you are animating- then "create blend shapes" from the animation menus...

there is plenty of help in the maya help files on this and that is pretty much free :-)
