Do you think that everything in this world is governed by numbers, from time, great structures and even beauty? Although many would say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder or that beauty is relative, many would also argue that beauty can be defined by a concise measure.
Some may raise their eyebrows at the idea that beauty is defined by inches. Not really the most flattering way to describe something to behold. But during the European renaissance period, where art dominates the culture, numerical measurement helps artists trace a person’s face to perfect their masterpieces. As you can see, the facial proportion is what they consider real beauty.
I guess this is where cosmetic surgeries come in. The desire to have a nose that forms perfectly in relation to the chin, a lip that protrudes perfectly, or puffy cheeks in the proper proportion to the entire face is everyone’s dream.
Dr. Kendra Schmid, Assistant Professor of Biostatics, developed a way to determine the correct facial measurement that would ensure perfect beauty. To determine the facial sexual attractiveness of each person, she used the golden rule and 29 other measures. They say that this measurement particularly determines a beautiful face from the average. And there is a word that describes it better, and it is symmetry.
Dr. Schmid says that the so-called golden ratio shows that the ratio between the length and width of the face is 1.6. This means that to be “beautiful” the face must be 1 ½ longer than its width. This creates a nice proportion that ensures the face is symmetrical.
Another way of calling the golden ratio is the divine ratio. In fact, the great Leonardo da Vinci illustrated this in his masterpiece The Man in a Circle. You see, even science can attest that our bodies naturally have symmetry. For example, the length of each finger bone is 1.618 from the bone of the previous finger or the navel to the sole of the feet is also 1.618, and so many others.
Another way that Dr. Schmid determines symmetry or beauty is by measuring three facial segments. The first is from the hairline on the forehead to the point between the eyes, the second is the area between the eyes to the bottom of the nose, and lastly, from the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the Chin. If these three areas are the same, that face can be considered beautiful. So, in plastic surgery, if a surgeon is capable of giving that facial proportion by successfully shaping a nose or chiseling a chin, then we can say that he is capable of understanding aesthetics quite well.
Then, finally, to determine the correct equation of beauty, the length of the ear must be equal to the length of the nose and the width of one eye must be equal to the distance between both eyes. When all these areas are in the right proportion, it is when a face can be considered perfect. So when a cosmetic surgeon lifts the face too high, it can affect the overall balance and attractiveness of the face.
So if you really want to improve yourself with cosmetic surgery by improving yourself and not by going through over-the-top procedures, make sure you find the best and most suitable cosmetic surgeon who can do it for you. Symmetry of the face and body makes a person more attractive to the opposite sex, and mind you, this is true in all cultures. So be very careful when choosing your surgeon if you want to achieve, regain or maintain that symmetry and beauty.
