People have become more aware of their appearance in the past 10 years thanks to the introduction and growth of social media websites. Selfies, Instagram, and Facebook have all contributed to a higher level of self-consciousness in how we look or dress. One of the other side effects of this phenomenon is the idea that people look better when photographed from one side of their face compared to the other. They want pictures to capture them on their “good side.”
While it might sound silly to think that people can have good and bad sides of their face, it is true that faces do look different from side to side, which can be especially obvious when viewed exclusively from the side instead of the front. This view, known as a profile view, determines the aesthetic appearance of the left and right sides of the face and contributes to the face’s overall appearance.
A profile’s aesthetic appeal is especially dictated by the nose and the chin because they are the most prominent facial features. Ideally, the nose and chin should be proportional to each other, meaning that one doesn’t stick out more than the other. They should also create smooth lines in the face, meaning that they should be free of abnormalities or deformities. If either the nose or chin were disproportionately large or is more noticeable through certain characteristics, the overall look and balance of the face can be disturbed.
Asian rhinoplasty can improve your profile by reshaping your nose so that it is more proportional to your chin and free of any abnormalities. Asians often have low nasal bridges and slightly bulbous noses, which can make the nose more prominent when the face is viewed in profile. When the face is viewed from the front, the low nasal bridge causes the nose to blend in while the round nasal tip becomes the focal point. Asian rhinoplasty can help give your nose a more balanced appearance by raising the nasal bridge and narrowing the nasal tip. This in turn will give your nose more definition in your face and increase the aesthetic appeal from all sides, not just the front!
