The facial shape you’re born with is part of your face’s character and is part of what makes you, you. While you can’t change your face shape, what you can do to up your attractiveness is soften hard angles, enhance proportionality, add dimension where it’s lacking, and minimize aspects of your face shape that dominate or overwhelm other features. This is a key component of Dr. Alharkan’s Illumination 360° approach to perfecting your face with injectable fillers at his San Francisco plastic surgery practice. He considers the principles of symmetry, proportionality, youthfulness, and familiarity when working to bring out the best in your face shape.
You may not be conscious of it, but you’re making decisions based on your face shape all the time. Buying glasses? You pick the ones that look good on you because of the way they work with your face shape. Styling your hair? You probably know what lengths and cuts work for you and which ones aren’t flattering, and that has a lot to do with the angles and dimensions of your face shape.
Most makeup artists, beauty bloggers, and aesthetic experts agree that, in general, faces come in 4 shapes: oval, heart, round, and square. Of course, the dimensions of your particular face shape can vary—you may have a long oval face or a wide heart-shaped face, but in general, each of us fits into one of these categories.
