The beauty of a person’s face is not only influenced by the smoothness of the skin but what is also important is the structure of facial bones. A good and balanced facial bone structure will provide a proportional and attractive look. But unfortunately, not everyone is born with a proportional bone structure.
This structure is very influenced by race. Many people from certain regions have strong and wide facial bone structures. As for other areas, many have facial bone structures with protruding gums.
Today’s Caucasian race tends to want more prominent cheekbones, like those of the Asian race. In contrast, Asians tend to want less prominent cheekbones. With advances in medical technology, especially in plastic surgery, the structure of facial bones can be changed and improved to be more attractive with jaw surgery (jaw surgery).
