The world’s most desirable feature is tough to narrow down, but when it comes to facial attractiveness, London-based plastic surgeon Julian De Silva has determined the winners after surveying 1,000 patients of his own. The surgeon also was able to link the most sought-after features to specific individuals in the spotlight on a regular basis.
ET Canada relays the findings.
“Da Silva, who works at the Centre for Advanced Facial Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, has singled out Kate Middleton’s ‘mathematically perfect’ nose and Keira Knightley’s eyelids as the most requested procedures over the years.”
After compiling feedback from clients, De Silva continued to create an image composed of all the “most desirable” facial features, including components of Jennifer Lopez’s eyebrows, Angelina Jolie’s cheeks, Reese Witherspoon’s flawless skin, the forehead of Miley Cyrus, Penelope Cruz’s full lips, and the chin of Selena Gomez.

An additional revelation that was made known earlier this year after a similar survey by De Silva, concluded in the findings that Amber Heard, the actress and former wife to Johnny Depp, has the most beautiful face in the world. The findings, are not just based on appeal, but also are determined via a scientific ratio.
“The doctor called on his team to create software that analyses a person’s facial features, and according to his findings, Heard’s “eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial shape were measured and 12 key marker points were analyzed and found to be 91.85 percent of the Greek ratio of phi, which is 1.618.”
De Silva explained that this is the golden ratio in determining the most beautiful facial structures. He also shares that clients will visit him and refer to a specific celebrity of whom they wish to look like. The surgeon shares that replicating the nose of Kate Middleton typically works well for most people and is possible to achieve, yet often, he must advise against the process to try to match celebrities’ appearances if the client does not have the natural structure that will enable the transformation.
The Telegraph relays the words of De Silva.
“You will often have a consultation with a patient who will present you with a picture of a well-known person and will say: ‘I want to look like that.’ Obviously the challenge for me is to look at their facial proportions and advise whether this will be a good look for them after surgery. Thankfully, a lot of the time, it works very naturally to replicate a nose like the Duchess of Cambridge’s or eyelids similar to Keira Knightley’s. But on other occasions we do have to amend the plans because there are limits to how far you can improve what nature has given you.”
De Silva goes on to explain that most patients are more realistic in terms of what they hope to achieve in their appearance. They are aware that a new nose is not actually going to make them look like Kate Middleton, “[b]ut a nose like Kate’s might perfectly complement the rest of their features and give them a much more beautiful face.”
The doctor shares that the reason Duchess Kate’s nose is so desirable is because it is mathematically near perfect. He shares that Middleton’s nose is straight with a feminine and delicate appeal and a “106-degree tip rotation.” In his surveys and studies, De Silva has discovered that this is the angle which people find most attractive.

In compiling all of the research and responses from his clients as to the perfect features, a face that was compiled of each of the most desirable features was produced. Many have stated that the final picture resembles Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev.
