In the science of cosmetic medicine, we have the measurement of what constitutes a more perfect facial feature. Variation from this is what makes every face unique. However, too much deviation can affect the resultant outlook in a negative way.
The perfect shape being diamond or heart shaped. A round or square face gives the impression of being obese or too 'manly'. However round shaped face can offset age related fat degeneration to a greater extent
1. Nose width, Eyes Width,
Eye corner to Ears all 1/5 ratio.
Common examples that fail to meet ratio:
  • Nose width too narrow
    (Makes the eyes too close together)
  • Nose width too wide
    (Makes the eyes too far apart)
  • Eyes too small
  • Face too wide
  • Ears too far forward
  • 2. Hairline to Eyelids, Eyelids to Nose tip, Nose tip to Chin each 1/3. Common examples that fail to meet ratio:
  • Too large or narrow forehead
  • Too large or small cheeks
  • Small Chin
  • Nasofrontal Angle, from the forehead to nose bridge (glabella-to-nasion line intersecting with nasion- to-tip line), determines the height of the nose, and is the most deficient in asiatics.

  • Nasofacial Angle, from the nosebridge to the face (glabella-to-pogonion line intersecting with nasion-to-tip line) can cause the eyes to appear too close together if this angle is small, even if the nose is high enough. In the opposite end, the eyes are too far apart giving a 'lion face' look.

  • Nasomental Angle, the angle of the nose tip (nasion-to-tip line intersecting with tip-to- pogonion line) too large an angle will reveal too much nostrils, giving a knobby feel.
  • Upper Lip 8mm, Lower Lip 10mm,
    or ratio of 0.8
    Nose height to width ratio 0.7
    Midline to side of nose, to mouth corner
    (intersecting limbus of eye) 1/2 each
  • Line C:
    The brow should start from medially at a vertical line that passes through the alar groove and medial canthus

  • Line D & E:
    The arch should be higher, located at a range from the vertical line draw from the lateral limbus to a line from nasal ala through the center of iris

  • Line F:
    The brow should end along an oblique line from the nasal ala through the lateral canthus at roughly the same height as the medial brow

  • Apart from having a perfect eyebrow, different variations are more suitable to different face contour for best harmony.

  • Heart shaped face is more suitable for a slightly flatter brow

  • Square or round face is more suitable for a higher arch to give a classic beaute look

  • Ideal male brow should be placed at the supraorbital rim and fairly flat
  • Other common face contour problems:
  • Hypertrophied Glabellar Muscles (frowning all the time)
  • Cheek Lipoatrophy (Hollow cheeks)
  • Overactive lower mouth corner muscles, with down turned mouth corners
  • To have an understanding of the perfect face and individual variations, not only helps in selecting the best facial contouring treatments, but also essential for best results when using makeups or when selecting angles to face the camera.
