There is not a Standard for Cheekbone Position

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

I love this saying because there is not a standard of beauty. Beauty is subjective and we must be take into context of the entire picture. Low cheekbones may be beautiful on one person and look poorly on someone else. The opposite may be true. I think each situation of concern should be evaluated in the context of the relationship of the entire face and the patient's concerns.
