Photographic Facial Soft Tissue Analysis of Healthy Turkish Young Adults: Anthropometric Measurements
- 442 Downloads
The purpose of this study was to establish facial soft tissue norms for Turkish young adults.
Anthropometric measurements of the facial soft tissue were taken from 281 female and 149 male Turkish adults aged between 18 and 24 years. The soft tissue facial profiles were digitally analyzed using linear (17 vertical and 10 horizontal) measurements made with standardized photographic records, taken in a natural head position, to determine the average soft tissue facial profile for males and females.
A statistically significant difference was found between males and females in 20 of 27 measurements taken (p < 0.001). The most prominent differences between the sexes were observed in the measurements taken from the face region. Results were compared with other ethnic groups.
