What are facial proportions?

Certain faces which are deemed to be beautiful, when analysed, show a reproducible balance between different facial structures. Bringing a face towards ideal proportions beautifies the face. This is never carried out in isolation but can help give an indication of the areas which may need adjustment.


While one half of the face never looks exactly the same as the other half, attention is readily drawn towards any areas of marked discrepancy

Rule of thirds

In some systems of beauty, the forehead should comprise one third of the height of the face, the mid face one third, and the lips and chin one third.


Certain facial features are most in balance when they are in the ratio of 1 to 1.618. So for example, the lower lip may be optimally sized when it is 1.618 times bigger than the upper lip for some individuals.

What is the relevance of facial proportions?

The systems of analysing facial proportions are mentioned as they can be used a guide when planning non-surgical aesthetic treatments. Our methods have shown that restoring or improving proportions to aesthetic ideals can bring about beautification of the face in a way that is more powerful than improvement of individual lines or wrinkles. Proportions are balanced with the use of fillers. Fillers are injectable implants and can help create enhancement and volume to anatomical structures to achieve these goals.
