What is beauty? Why is someone beautiful to one but not to another? It was perhaps this very confusion about the definition of beauty that drove architects and pre-Renaissance-era artists to define ‘Phi’ –also known as the Golden Ratio or the yield of the Fibonacci series. It is believed that Mother Nature uses this very ratio to engineer many of her parts. From the seeds of the sunflower, to growth and blossoming of plants, to the ratio of the length of the human body to its torso, to the structure of our DNA; the Golden Ratio can be seen everywhere.
Isn’t it but natural that one considers this important element prior to undergoing facelift surgery in India?
What is the Golden Ratio? What does it mean in terms of the human face?
The number Phi or the Golden Ratio is equivalent to 1·61803398874989484820 and supposedly all of the world’s most beautiful women (and men) have their facial features in proportion to this Ratio. From Nefertiti to Audrey Hepburn to Marilyn Monroe to Angelina Jolie to our very own Aishwarya Rai, these beauties all have the Golden Ratio in their proportions. Moreover, the ratio is applicable across all cultures, for all skin types and for women as well as men.
A look throughout history shows that the most beautiful faces have the following proportions:
- The length of the face is approximately 1.5 times its width
- Secondly, these faces display equal distance between the hairline and the eyes, the eyes and the bottom part of the nose, and the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin.
- The ear’s length is also equivalent to the nose length.
- And finally, the spacing or distance between the eyes is also equal to the width of the eye.
All these measurements in turn yield a beauty rating between 1 and 10, with 10 being the most beautiful. The closer an individual’s proportions (as mentioned above) are to Phi (1.6180); the more beautiful she/he is considered with a beauty rating nearer or equal to 10.
So why is the Golden Ratio important in Facelift surgery?
The best facelift surgeons naturally keep this concept in mind when correcting their patients’ facial features cosmetically. Naturally, of importance here are perfect proportions and not just the symmetry of features, for one can achieve perfect symmetry but that could come at the cost of making a personlook frozen or robot-like.
This is where it all comes down to choosing the best facelift surgeon in India, because the best would not go overboard in creating symmetry in the natural features. Rather; bearing the Golden Ratio in mind, the surgeon will use his skills and expertise in giving the best results for individual needs.
