ABSTRACT:Background: Although certain characteristics of human faces are broadly considered more attractive (e.g. symmetry, averageness), people also routinely disagree with each other on the relative attractiveness of faces. Hence; the present study was planned for analysis of a single component for assessing overall facial attractiveness. Materials & methods: A total of 100 patients were included in the present study. Only those patients were included in the present study that had undergone orthognathic surgery in the past one year. Complete demographic and clinical profile of all the patients was obtained. Two independent raters (one male and one female) assessed the pre-treatment and post-treatment frontal and lateral facial photographs. Aesthetic score rated on a scale of one to seven in which one indicated lowest score and ten indicated highest score. All the scores were recorded in Microsoft excel sheet and were analysed by SPSS software. Results: Mean aesthetic score of nose, lip, eyes and skin was 6.2, 5, 5.8 and 5.6 respectively. The overall attractiveness score was 5.8. Conclusion: Single component do have significant effect on the overall facial attractiveness
