Face and Golden Ratio

Beauty criteria of people is actually related to proportional organ distribution and present tissue percentage.For example, thick and full lips, slightly upright nose and full cheeks are proportionate to the total face, eyebrows are curved and chin is small.Therefore, we can say that beauty of people is associated with golden ratio.Golden ration can be expressed as the percentage of each organ and aesthetic harmony of the face with these values evokes the perception of beauty.If a person has a face with golden ratio, then that will be a faced that is admired.Chin and triangular cheek area are the most important elements of golden ratio of the face.Face looks young, attractive and aesthetically pleasing with this ratio.The foundation of Hollywood cheek aesthetic is based on golden ratio, distinct cheekbones and thin chin region.

Cheek aesthetic planning

Cheek aesthetic surgery is a significantly easy surgery completed in thirty minutes using local anesthesia or under general anesthesia depending on the preference and general condition of the patient.Generally, experience of the surgeon in this field is of crucial importance.The size of the fat to be removed from the cheek area, its shape and remodeling of the chin to the desired shape depends on the personal preparation of the cheek triangle prior to the operation.In short, planning must be personal and very meticulously prepared.If fat is collected in excess or from a wrong area, desired triangular form cannot be achieved and results will not be good.Particularly age, chin and cheekbone dimensions of the patient form the basis of the amount of fat to be collected.Therefore, never forget the importance of the experience your aesthetic surgeon has in this regard.

Cheek aesthetic and age

We recommend the removal of cheek fats not before twenty or twenty-five years of age.Unless it is an extreme case, not removing the fat before 20 years of age is good to avoid future problems.Because thickness of the fat layers at this age starts to decrease in later years, this is why we recommend patients to be at a certain age.Genetic characteristics of the patient is also important for this procedure.
