Facial Beauty Study Survey

By Sir Harold Delf Gillies American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery Awarded Founder of a New Theory on Beauty & Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Philip Young

We are conducting further research to elucidate the elements of beauty that was originally set forth in our award winning article in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery. Click here to read more about the Circles of Prominence, A New Theory on Facial Beauty. For each section of the study below please assign a value for each picture from 1-4 where 1 is the most attractive picture and 4 is the least attractive picture. You can use each value once for each section. Importantly, some of the pictures of the real patient | person were created by a morphing program. Hence some of the pictures may appear unnatural. Our intent was to study how the different shapes and positions of the lips, nose, and ears affects your perception of beauty. Just do the best you can with interpreting which picture would look better if it were to occur as nature would have it and look past some of the obvious signs that the picture had been morphed.


  1. Use each value once from 1 – 4 where: 
  2. The value 1 is chosen for the most attractive picture.
  3. The value 4 is chosen for the least attractive picture.
