How does one determine ideal facial proportions?

Merz Aesthetics had organised an extensive three-month-long MAAT Golden Ratio Search across 10 countries to find the most proportioned faces in Asia according to the measurements of the golden ratio, which saw more 3,000 submissions from Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

It used the science of measurements such as the Golden Ratio to create awareness on symmetrical facial ratios relative to beauty. It was an integral part of the launch of the first medical guidelines that provide a holistic approach in aesthetic treatments to achieve well-proportioned faces in Asians. The region-wide search was a structured programme developed to support the objectives of the medical
guidelines, which is to bring science to life.
