Abstract: 

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Facial zone is the main part of human’s body for establishing proper beauty and in this regard, profile attractiveness is of special importance. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of sagittal and vertical changes of lower facial third on perception of profile attractiveness among males and females of various educational levels and ages.
METHODS: This descriptive analytical study was performed on 214 subjects of referrals, staff and students of dental school and Ferdosi University of Mashhad. The effect of sagittal and vertical changes of lower facial third on perception of profile attractiveness was evaluated by using profile silhouettes with different degrees of soft tissue convexity and different ratio of upper face to lower face. Kruskal-Wallis and Mann Whitney tests were used for statistical analysis of the differences in each group and between different groups.
FINDINGS: In the series of sagittal and vertical changes, the profile with +6
°soft tissue convexity and  1/1 ratio of upper face to lower face was selected as the most desirable. There was no significant differences between males and females (p>0.05). No significant differences were found between teenagers and early adults (<35 years) (p>0.05), but they had significant differences with late adults (>35 years) (p<0.05). There was a significant difference between educated and non-educated subjects (p<0.05).
CONCLUSION: Gender had a little effect on ranking of the silhouettes. Late adults in comparison with younger’s, had different ideas about profile attractiveness. Educational level had a deep influence on perception of profile attractiveness.
