Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie, Natalia Vodianova, Megan Fox and other celebrities regularly fall into the lists of the most beautiful and sexy celebrities. And for good reason: their appearance corresponds to certain canons. Can you approach them? We sorted it out together with a plastic surgeon and a beautician.


Beauty formula

One of the parameters of the ideal of beauty is considered compliance with the so-called golden ratio: the proportions of the face in the ratio of 1 to 1.618. The distances between the lips, chin, nose, forehead and eyes are examined. But, you must admit, and without any formulas, we automatically read the beautiful faces of people. The question is that modern means allow you to get closer to the standards of beauty. Even to those who by nature had quite an ordinary genetic makeup. For example, recently Bella Hadid was recognized as the most beautiful woman (precisely within the framework of the golden ratio). But the girl spent several years of her life on plastic surgeries: she changed the shape of her nose and lips, got rid of Bisha's lumps, made her breasts. Our expert confirms: ideal faces from nature are extremely rare and many stars really resorted to the services of plastic surgeons. It is understandable, appearance is their working tool.

Not everything can be fixed, but a lot

“Speaking about the ideal, the so-called golden ratio, we mean symmetry, harmony of the face. But for most people, the right eye does not match the size of the left one, the chin is crooked due to the wrong bite, the nose is too small or, conversely, large. Or there is a pronounced snub-nose or hump. Nostrils also matter: they should not be too small or protruding. There are many nuances. If we are talking about eyes, we mean large, wide-open ones. The almond-shaped eye shape is always held in high esteem. Slightly sunken cheeks always work for an aristocratic face, so many people dream of high cheekbones.

Do not think that a plastic surgeon is a magician who can do everything. The initial data are still important. After all, if there is a deformation at the level of deep structures, congenital asymmetry of muscles, or a serious injury, a skull of a certain shape, one eye socket is larger than the other - there is little help here. It is necessary to correct the appearance in accessible ways, to emphasize the strengths. The natural shape of the eyes is very difficult to change. If the eye is shallowly set, then you can lift the skin structure on the eyelids themselves, the lateral vector, and create the illusion of an almond-shaped eye. But if the girl has deep-set eyes, this trick is more difficult to pull off. And, of course, you need to understand which type we are working with: Caucasian or Asian. All have their own characteristics.

For example, I mentioned that high cheekbones always give the face a more sophisticated look. A popular operation to achieve this effect is the removal of Bish's lumps. These fatty "packets" are removed quite easily: the mucous membrane is dissected from the inside of the cheeks. The size of the lumps, on average, is one and a half teaspoon, but there is also a tablespoon. After three weeks, the skin shrinks, the swelling subsides and such attractive sunken cheeks appear on the face. But with excess weight, the effect, of course, is less obvious - you will need to lose weight. By the way, in Asians Bish's lumps are highly developed - up to one and a half tablespoons."

beauty is in the eye of the beholder

We offered the surgeon to evaluate the faces of Hollywood recognized beauties - Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, Beyonce and our supermodel Natalia Vodianova. And we were convinced that the concept of beauty is subjective, even when a plastic specialist is taken to analyze. “I would not call Scarlett Johansson beautiful. Yes, she has significant advantages when it comes to appearance. These are almond-shaped eyes of beautiful color and sensual lips. Otherwise, she is not the standard of beauty, in my opinion.

Jolie has an aristocratic face, clear contours: a small nose, plump lips, a flawless contour, a beautiful eyebrow shape, a symmetrical face - it is no coincidence that for many she is the ideal of beauty. In Vodianova, we see pronounced eyes of a beautiful color, a small nose, plump lips, a doll type - this makes her attractive. Megan Fox has high cheekbones, a neat nose, beautiful lips, and a well-proportioned face.

Beyoncé is a beautiful girl by nature: her strengths are big eyes and well-defined lips. But all of the celebrities listed, with the exception of Vodianova, brought their appearance to perfection with the help of specialists: Scarlett Johansson obviously made a nose that was wide enough, Jolie also resorted to rhinoplasty, did blepharoplasty and removed Bisha's lumps. Beyoncé was clearly narrowing the bridge of her nose, Megan was doing blepharoplasty to make her eyes "feline".

This is the world's most desirable face

Here I immediately want to recall the slander of psychologists about how important it is to develop charisma and accept ourselves as we are. After all, everyone remembers how the British plastic surgeon Julian De Silva made a composite sketch of the ideal beauty based on the requests of his clients who dreamed of Kate Middleton's perfect nose, Angelina Jolie's lips and cheekbones and Jennifer Lopez's eyebrows. The resulting girl is not bad-looking, but, to put it mildly, no one remembered. Too correct.

Complete symmetry is ugly

“Try to add two images on the right or two on the left - this is very unusual for the human eye. We notice pronounced asymmetries. It is these imperfections that modern cosmetology smoothes out.

Irina Sheik, Regina Todorenko, Svetlana Khodchenkova fall under the canons of more ideal stars, if we talk about domestic ones. From the point of view of cosmetology, they have a well-defined and balanced bony skeleton of the face: a high forehead with frontal tubercles, high contoured cheekbones, a regular straight nose, balance of the upper and lower jaw, a contoured chin and the line of the lower jaw. Correct ratio of upper, middle and lower third of the face. The whole thing creates the effect of a slightly elongated triangle. As for the soft tissues, these are smooth lines, without sharp drops, repeating the bone frame. The less shadows on the face, the better.

Modern cosmetology can do everything. Its expert part combines hardware procedures that work on the entire complex of soft tissues and injection procedures that replenish lost volumes and fix the ligamentous apparatus of the face. The devices are a combination of modern lasers and ultrasonic SMAS technologies. I would call them SMART procedures. With the help of these miracle tools, we tighten the layer in which the age failure occurred. And all without incisions, anesthesia and rehabilitation. And then, after hardware rejuvenation and tissue reduction, we highlight the golden ratio with the help of fillers. And a beautiful sloping forehead, and a hairy look, and high cheekbones, and fashionable angles of the lower jaw, and a straight perfect nose, and much more."
