How to Improve the Proportions of Your Face

Facial Plastic Surgery, Mt. Vernon

In facial plastic surgery, we use the “golden ratio,” a mathematical equation for beauty. Someone who is considered traditionally beautiful with the golden ratio has a face about 1.5 times longer than it is wide. Additionally, we often evaluate the face based on three sections — when features in one of these sections render it disproportionate, it can affect your overall appearance. Our dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon will help you determine the right surgical procedure or non-surgical cosmetic treatment to enhance your facial proportions.

Enhancing the Nose

The nose is the most prominent facial feature, and cosmetic concerns with the nose affect your overall facial appearance. Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, has the potential to dramatically improve your facial profile and overall look. Whether it’s an issue with the bridge, nostrils or nose tip, or a breathing issue from a deviated septum, a rhinoplasty can help you achieve the nose shape you desire.

Addressing Volume Loss and Loose Skin in the Lower Face

The lower third of your face experiences many effects from gravity and the natural aging process. Sometimes these changes can affect the proportions of your face. The evenly distributed fat of your youth clumps together and shifts down toward your chin, causing jowling and an undefined chin. Procedures such as chin augmentation or a face and neck lift can restore lost volume.

Improving Facial Proportions with Non-Surgical Dermal Fillers

Injectables are known for smoothing lines and wrinkles, but dermal fillers may also be utilized to alter sections of your face to achieve the Golden Ratio and provide a refreshed, youthful appearance for the entire face. Dermal fillers add volume to areas of the face and in doing so may balance out your facial features. Our nurse injector can skillfully administer your injectable treatment to highlight your cheekbones, improve chin definition and provide subtle alterations to the nose tip.

The Golden Ratio boils beauty down to a mathematic equation for your facial structure. Dr. Grant will evaluate your face and discuss your cosmetic concerns to determine the best way to achieve a well-balanced appearance.
