The Truth About the Non-Invasive Facelift

The Esthetic Plane

It is often said that “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, which may be true, there is also an aesthetic perspective when it comes to beauty and how it is assessed. When we look at what is “ideal” and what we are looking to find, it really is about symmetry and balance. Symmetry and balance have been a guiding element for beauty in art, sculpture, and architecture for thousands of years.

Dr. Robert Rickett’s theory has led to being one of the most widely used measuring tools in facial and profile balancing. Although the exact measurements differ in today’s practice, commonly in the lips, a profile where the nose and chin projection meet this line are still desired in the geometric measurement of beauty. We use various treatments and dermal fillers to help patients achieve this ideal balance and have a more desired profile, without undergoing drastic surgical alterations.
