Objective: Digital photographs of first generation Korean-American women will be taken and then anonymously presented to reviewers who will rate the global aesthetics of each face. The photographs will then be analyzed and a set of aesthetic measurements will be made. The overall averages of these measurements will be compared to published standards for Caucasians, as well as the average measurements for the most aesthetic decile of photographed Korean-American women. This study will help guide facial plastic surgeons in caring for Korean-Americans.
Project Co-Investigators are Kyle Choe, M.D. and Thomas Romo III, M.D., F.A.C.S.
