It may be true that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” However, there seems to be some common denominators when it comes to what people perceive as beautiful. In regards to a woman’s facial appearance, cognitive researchers and psychologists believe the following are some of the traits that define beauty and attraction:
Sex-specific Traits: This seems to be one of the major factors in determining what we find beautiful. In other words, the more feminine a woman’s facial features are, the more attractive she is perceived. These sex-specific traits for women include large eyes, a smaller nose, high cheekbones and full lips. These features collectively are what create greater attraction and beauty. Some researchers believe the reasoning behind this is because these traits are markers of high fertility and health.
Symmetry: If your facial features are symmetrical, this is considered more beautiful. Asymmetrical features can be congenital, injury-related or a result of a nutrition deficiency or serious illness during developmental years. A qualified and experienced facial plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Ben Talei, will understand the importance of facial symmetry and balance when it comes to your surgical results.
Smooth Complexion: A glowing, unblemished complexion is another marker of beauty in women. Again, many researches believe that others are drawn to women who seem younger and more feminine – and flawless and hairless skin is an indication of good health, vitality and high levels of estrogen. Acne-free skin is also more pleasing to look at in general.
Every woman wants to feel and look more beautiful. While it may be an aesthetic skin rejuvenation service for one woman, it can mean a nose job or lip enhancement for another. Often times, the more confident you feel in your appearance, the more attractive and beautiful you are to others. The Beverly Hills Center offers a full range of cosmetic services for women, including both surgical and non-surgical procedures to create a beautiful and balanced face.
