The Attractive Face

What makes a guy attractive? Most people think of a chiseled jaw, nice eyes, a strong chin and defined cheekbones. But there are other features, too, like the nose, ears, and lips that we may take for granted, but that factor into the attractiveness equation. Dr. Mabrie takes all of these features and more into consideration when helping you develop a treatment plan for a more attractive face.

Whether you're looking to restore or preserve your youthful good looks, or are interested in improving on your existing features, Dr. Mabrie takes a comprehensive approach, making strategic, subtle changes — usually non-surgical — that have a synergistic effect.

The Science of Beauty, Understood at Last

You may be surprised to learn that subtle nuances – not dramatic differences – are what distinguish the ordinary face from the attractive face. Alone, these tiny details are almost imperceptible, but collectively, they make the difference between good-looking and average. Research indicates that the attractive face is characterized by:


Similarity between the left and right halves of the face


A strong chin, structured brow, defined cheekbones


Firm skin, defined contours, lack of shadows, bags, and wrinkles


Nothing exotic or overly feminine about the features
