Facial Beauty Theory & Philosophy of Bellevue | Seattle’s Dr. Philip Young & Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery
Exciting New Theory on Facial Beauty Introduced: Have you ever wondered what makes a face beautiful? Well, people have been trying to figure this out even before Leonardo Da Vinci described the Neoclassical Canons in the 1400′s. Check out the latest textbook on Plastic Surgery or anything that might relate to, or discuss, facial beauty and you will see that Da Vinci's theories are still the most dominant theory. We have not changed our understanding of what makes a face beautiful for all of these centuries. Recent literature by Dr. Leslie Farkas and others have shown strong support that the Neoclassical Canons do not explain Beauty. Other theories have tried and they have also fallen short including the Golden number of Phi, the Golden Mask, The Theory of Averageness, Cephalometrics, etc. However, Award-Winning, Triple Board Certified and Published Author Dr. Philip Young believes that he may have found some very interesting elements in his Theory on Facial Beauty that could provide some of the those long awaited answers. Dr. Young’s Theory on Beauty has been reviewed by his peers and awarded the Sir Harold Delf Gillies Award for Best Basic Science Research Paper in the field of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in 2005. Read his publication on Facial Beauty here, which was featured in the Archives of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. This theory was also included in the plastic surgery textbook "Rhinology and Facial Plastic Surgery" in 2009. He further published a follow up article recently in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery here: The Circles of Prominence: Ideal Ratios That Determine the Basis of Facial Beauty. This was just published in March of 2015. In February 2015, after a year of gathering data, Dr. Philip Young presented his findings at the American Brazilian Aesthetics Meeting in February of 2015. Click here to read about the findings of this study that you may have participated in: Facial Beauty Theory: The Circles of Prominence Key Shapes and Distances in the Face. We are currently formulating another study that we are going to be presenting in Dallas at the end of September 2015.

More on Facial Beauty:
Dissatisfied with the current Thoughts on Facial Beauty held by many of the top doctors in the industry, Dr. Young spent years studying the patterns of beauty and its relationship with nature. Through years of extensive research Dr. Young discovered his award winning theory, The Circles of Prominence which has been featured in Plastic Surgery Textbooks, Magazines and peer reviewed journal articles.
Dr. Young established key areas of the face where our eyes are immediately drawn, which convey the most about who we are and how attractive we are. Interestingly, we look for clues in one another’s eyes, as well as around the nose and mouth where we take our breaths and communicate. Attractiveness is certainly in the eye of the beholder, but it is not random; it is governed by our inherent perceptions of beauty that we appreciate from the day we are born.
Clinical and academic studies support Dr. Young’s theory that, starting with the size of your iris, the arrangement of facial shapes can be seen as aesthetically pleasing based on simple geometry and mathematics. He also uncovered the tendency for these features to subtly manifest themselves in circular groupings – areas particularly sensitive to the effects of contrast and light, like history’s greatest works of art.

Why is this theory on facial beauty so important? The knowledge of facial beauty and what makes a particular face beautiful is like knowing the architectural plans for a house. A theory on facial beauty is our drawing board for knowing how we carry-out a certain procedure. Prior to Dr. Young’s Circles of Prominence theory, plastic surgeons relied on theories of beauty that Leonardo da Vinci formulated back in the 1400s. Dr. Young provides a fresh, and more accurate approach to bringing out the most beautiful and natural looking you.
