Whether it is about body appearance or facial features, people tend to find one or the other issue with how they look. In fact, in a survey, more than a quarter of people reported dissatisfaction with their looks. Some people want to get a bit toned, some wish for fuller lips, and some wish for Middleton’s nose (the world’s most perfect nose).
However, it is important to understand that nobody is perfect. Instead of aiming for perfection, one should focus on facial harmony.
What Is Facial Harmony?
Many people relate facial harmony to beauty. But, this concept is more inclined towards the proportion of facial features and not the perfection of those features. In simple terms, facial harmony is about the interaction between different features and not the direct measurements. It helps in creating a balance between every facial feature.
As most people do not have a proper balance, i.e., one feature is more highlighted than the other, they often opt for plastic surgeries or aesthetic procedures to establish a balance.
How Plastic Surgery Helps?
Typically, there are different procedures for different facial features like rhinoplasty, chin and cheek augmentation, eyelid surgery, facelift, and more. One can opt for any (or a combination) of these procedures to get desired results.
However, it is crucial to understand that procedures also include gentle and minor adjustments in the surrounding areas. For instance, by reducing the size of the dorsum, the nasal tip might look more exposed. Thus, the nasal may also require a bit of refinement.
In fact, while talking about rhinoplasty with Dr. Edward Kwak, he explained that procedures aim to refine the features to suit a patient’s face without drawing undue attention towards it. Needless to say, it requires a deep understanding of facial shape, symmetry, and anatomy to ensure that every facial feature looks balanced and elegant.
What Are The Common Surgical Combos For Balanced Appearance?
- Nose And Chin
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, rhinoplasty or nose job is the fourth most popular cosmetic procedure. As the nose is in the center of the face, it plays a significant role in creating a balance. Here, surgeons often create a perfect balance on micro and macro levels. Usually, minor changes are required around the chin, for which chin augmentation is performed. It ensures that the chin and nose are in accurate proportion.
- Eyes And Brows
Another common procedure is eyelid surgery, performed to give the eyes a more youthful and awake appearance. People with monolid or single eyelids and creases often prefer this procedure to enhance the shape and size of their eyes. It is combined with a brow lift to elevate the features and reduce sagging skin.
- Upper And Lower Face
Lastly, facelift surgery can be done alone to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles. But, if the signs of aging are significantly visible, it can make your face look unnatural. That’s why upper and lower facelift is done together for better results.
To look good, it is essential to create balance and harmony between different features. One can obtain this balance using surgical procedures. Even so, it is essential to consult the surgeon to learn treatment details, after-care, risk, etc., before making the final decision.
