March 2015:

In March of 2015, Dr. Philip Young's latest paper on his New Theory on Facial Beauty was published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery: The Circles of Prominence: Ideal Ratios That Determine the Basis of Facial Beauty. In the scientific research study, Dr. Young discovers that the face is organized ideally by the iris, nasal tip and lower lip. These center pieces determine the location of the eyes, nose and mouth in general. He finds that the symmetrical positioning of the iris, nasal tip and lower lip satisfies a basic level of beauty. In this paper, he finds the most ideal positioning of these shapes. You can click here for the actual paper on The Circles of Prominence: Ideal Ratios That Determine the Basis of Facial Beauty.
