Cheek & Chin Implants
Facial harmony is the sum of a number of factors beginning with the skeleton, then influenced by the muscle, fat, and cartilage under the skin, and finally by the skin itself. In trying to achieve as attractive a face as possible, analysis of the projections and contours created by these structures must be analyzed. This is done by direct physical examination, use of an imaging computer, and occasionally x-rays of the face.
Many studies have been published defining, by mathematical analysis of facial contour, what constitutes an “attractive” face. Although there is great variability and subjectivity in appreciation of facial beauty, there are numerical standards that are usefully applied to facial analysis when planning an operation to change facial features.
