The Two Circles of My Face Find the ideal shape for your face with Dream’s scientific Two Circle Method.

All ABOUT ‘Two CIRCLE’

There are many theories regarding the distance between the eyes, the nose and mouth, etc. However, the most important ratio in aesthetics is the one between the features and the contours of the face. The Two Circle Theory involves the scientific ratio of the facial shape aside from the ratios between the eyes, nose, and mouth.

Dream’s “Two Circle Magic”

Our faces have two kinds of circles. The “Outer Circle” is drawn around the outer contours of the face, and the “Inner Circle” is drawn with the eyes, nose, and mouth in the center. The smaller the difference is between the surface area of these two circles, the closer the face is to the ideal shape. If this difference is small, meaning that the two circles are close together, the face tends to appear more three-dimensional and delicate. Even if the eyes, nose, and mouth are relatively small, these faces tend to appear more feminine, and therefore, attractive. On the contrary, even if the eyes, nose, and mouth are big, if the difference between the circles is also big, the face may appear somewhat blunt and flatter in dimension.

What is the Two Circle Theory?

Outer Circle / Inner Circle

Inner Circle

  • The Inner Circle is formed around the facial features with the nose as the center, connecting the ends of the eyebrows to the corners of the lips. Many faces form a round Inner Circle, but in the case of patients with a longer midface (the middle part of the face), the Inner Circle may be more elongated and oval.

Outer Circle

  • The Outer Circle is formed around the outer contours of the face. The vertical axis is formed by the top end of the forehead and the end of the chin, and the horizontal axis is formed by the outer ends of the cheekbones. These 4 points are connected together in an oval, encasing the outline of the face.

In Korea, the average ratio of the surface area of the Inner Circle to the Outer Circle is 1: 1.5~1.6 When the Outer Circle is less than 1.5 of the surface area of the Inner Circle in ratio, the eyes, nose, and mouth are more defined and appear more attractive, whereas when the ratio is over 1.5, the face tends to appear bigger and less sophisticated.
Michelangelo’s work, “Pieta,” praised for the ideal ratios of the facial features of Virgin Mary, and Hollywood celebrities perceived to be attractive, such as Anne Hathaway, possess ratios of about 1:1.2.

Facial shapes according to the Two Circle Theory

The Ideal Face Shape

The Ideal Face Shape When the ratio between the inner and outer circle is 1:1.5~1.6

The space between the Inner Circle and the Outer Circle is small, and the face appears delicate and attractive overall. It is common for these types of faces to be also small in size.

The Donut Shape

The Donut Shape When the ratio between the two circles is more than 1:1.5~1.6

The face is relatively big compared to the eyes, nose, and mouth. At Dream, Facial Reduction Surgery is used to reduce the ratio between the inner and outer circle to a ratio that matches your eyes, nose, and mouth, and smooth out the contours of the face.

The Donut Shape

The Donut Shape When both the inner and outer circle are round in shape

This shape is commonly called the “round” face shape, in which both the inner and outer circle are round. In this case, making the chin slightly more pointed would make the face appear more refined and sophisticated.

The Flat Oval Shape

The Flat Oval Shape When the outer circle is wider compared to the inner circle

As it is in the case of many celebrities, facial shapes are more attractive when the space between the inner and outer circle is narrow on either side. In contrast, in cases where the sides are wide, the lateral cheekbones tend to protrude outward, making the face look wider and giving the person a harsh impression. In this case, the Highlight Cheekbone Reduction Surgery would be used to reduce the ratio

The Torch Shape

The Torch Shape When the space between the circles is small on the bottom

The chin is relatively short, giving the patient a dull impression that lacks definition. Dream’s Short Chin Correction Surgery uses the patient’s own bone or implants to alter the length of the chin.

Sunny Side up Egg Shape

Sunny Side up Egg Shape When the space between the circles is big on the bottom

If the chin is excessively long relative to the rest of the face, the patient may have mandibular prognathism, in which the jaw protrudes out forward \beyond the natural line of the coronal plane of the skull. This makes the face appear bigger and the patient appear stubborn and older in age.

The Slanted Egg Yolk Shape

The Slanted Egg Yolk Shape When the space between the circles differs on each side

With the nose as the center, the distance between the inner and outer circles is different on each side, making the face asymmetrical. This asymmetry creates imbalance in the face and could be corrected with the Decalcomania Facial Asymmetry Correction Surgery.
