What is Facial Symmetry?
Facial symmetry is where both sides of the face, left and right, are alike. The more asymmetrical, the less attractive one is considered to be. Facial symmetry is important for both males and females, however there are differing desirable traits. For example, men prefer female faces to be highly feminized, which include more childlike or baby-faced features including larger eyes and lips. On the other hand, women find men with wider jaws more attractive because wide jaws suggest strength and sexual maturity. However, both sexes tend to prefer facial features that are close to the average in terms of size and shape. So, very large or small noses, lips, and ears can be considered less attractive.
