Facial symmetry means that the features of your face match and balance out the others. If you are generally happy with your face, you may take facial symmetry for granted. But, people with crooked noses, dropping eyes, and uneven jaws understand the negative impacts of asymmetric facial features on a person’s self-confidence.
Why Does Facial Symmetry Matter?
Scientifically speaking, humans find symmetrical faces more attractive. That is because we register asymmetry as imperfections, and even minor flaws stand out. For example, a person with a slightly crooked nose but a beautiful face may feel that no one can see past their nose. This can be quite damaging to a person’s self-esteem. Luckily, there are plastic surgery procedures that can help improve facial symmetry.
What Are the 3 Best Plastic Surgeries to Improve Facial Symmetry?
What Is a Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty, also commonly referred to as a nose job, is a procedure that looks to sculpt the nose to a more attractive appearance. The nose is in the center of our faces and draws significant attention. So, bumps on our nose bridge or a slant in our nose can distract from the rest of our face. A rhinoplasty can help balance the harmony of the nose with the face to create a more attractive facial appearance.
What Is a Chin Implant?
A defined jawline helps the face look more aligned and attractive. For individuals who have a receding or “weak chin,” a chin implant can increase chin and jawline definition. A chin implant can accentuate and add symmetry to the lower part of the face and create more angular or chiseled facial contours.
What Is an Eyelid Surgery?
A common facial symmetry issue develops when the appearance or placement of one eye is different than the other. An eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyes. Much like the nose, the eyes are a focal point of our face and draw people’s attention. An eyelid surgery can help minimize droopiness and improve the symmetry of the eyes. It is a simple fix that will help everyone appreciate your eyes for their natural beauty, not a small flaw.
All of these procedures can have a significant impact on facial contours and symmetry. A small change can truly change the entire appearance of your face and leave you looking like an improved version of yourself.
