Section: Overview

Comparison of 30 East Asian and European Facial Attributes

Although helped along by cosmetics, hair dyes, and the like, it is the superficial and deep anatomy that determines the appearance of external form. While far from uniform across a large population, certain major features determined by genetics occur much more commonly and thus can be considered characteristic of a regional group.

East Asian and Western Faces Compared

Below we've collected, grouped, compared, and demonstrated important attributes (for instance, shape, height, fullness, and so on) for each of the major facial features found in people of East Asia or Europe and presented them side-by-side.

Since the fundamental steps of many popular facial plastic surgery operations were first developed decades ago on patients of European ancestry, the differences noted below must be considered by both patients when selecting a cosmetic procedure and plastic surgeons when performing it. What looks natural and attractive in one group does not always appear the same in the other.

Sections devoted to each of these features and attributes as well as any related operations can be found in our Knowledge Base.
