Everyone’s face is individual; so individual that facial features are our main form of social identification. We all have the same basic features, so what sets apart someone’s facial features to create a face that is more beautiful than others are? People who look very different, who have different eye shape and color, skin tone and texture, lip fullness, and nose shape, but are still beautiful must have something in common that people who are less beautiful are lacking. Halle Berry, Selma Hayek, Scarlett Johansson, and Lucy Liu for example, have completely different facial features, but they are all universally considered beautiful because of the golden ratio of beauty.
For years, plastic surgeons have researched and proven that cosmetic procedures, such as rhinoplasty and chin implants balance facial features to meet the standards of what researchers believe creates beauty. The golden ratio of beauty demonstrates that it isn’t necessarily facial features themselves, but the placement and measure between features that create beauty. Mathematicians have even determined the exact ratio, 1.618, to which features, such as the width between the nose and the mouth, are simply more aesthetically pleasing when they meet this ratio.
If your features do not follow the golden ration, plastic surgery procedures, such as chin implants and rhinoplasty can improve the measures of your features to meet this golden ratio of beauty that scientifically and mathematically improves your appearance. A person’s nose may be considered a little large, but perhaps the nose only appears large because of a receding chin. Nose surgery alone may improve the nose, but a combination of rhinoplasty and chin implants may produce results that are more pleasing and meet the level of beauty enhancement that you had in mind.
When performing a chin implant procedure, it is important to find a qualified plastic surgeon to perform the procedure. Traditionally, surgeons would create a large incision inside the mouth, which was more invasive, increased the possibility of a misaligned implant, and increased the risk of implant infection. Advances in medicine however, now allow plastic surgeons to perform chin implants through a small incision within a natural crease under the chin. This incision increases the precision in which the implant is positioned, leaves a barely noticeable scar, and decreases the risk of infection. The desired size implant would then be placed in this incision. Recovery from chin implant surgery is relatively quick, and patients can return to their daily activities within the first few days, and start light exercise within one week after the surgery.
In addition to adhering to the golden ration through chin implants, patients should go into their surgeon’s office with a clear understanding of nose surgery, as well. Also known as rhinoplasty, nose surgery is performed to correct the size, shape, or angle of your nose. Because of its central location on the face, even minor changes to the nose can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel about yourself. As the focal point of the face, the nose has the greatest influence on your overall facial appearance. Minor changes, such as smoothing a bump or reshaping the tip of the nose, and major changes, such as bringing a large nose into better proportion with the rest of the face, can have a huge impact on your overall appearance and self-esteem.
Understanding how procedures such as rhinoplasty and chin implants can enhance your overall facial appearance is the first step to determining what is best for your individual needs and desires. Many cosmetic procedures are performed in conjunction with another for an overall look of facial rejuvenation. Be sure to do your research, and don’t be afraid to ask your plastic surgeon any questions you may have when it comes to enhancing how you look and feel on the outside!
