Facial Reconstruction Inside Tip
Facial harmony means the facial features and proportions create a pleasant, balanced, distinct and individual appearance. The individual characteristics of the brow, eyes, nose, cheeks, chin, jaw, and lips all contribute to facial appearance, but it is how they work together that leads to facial harmony and beauty.
