Age-dependent changes in the width and height of the upper lip were studied in 2,300 healthy Bulgarians aged from 3 days to 102 years, for the purposes of cheiloplasty in surgery and of visual art. It has been established that at the moment of birth, the upper lip is one of the most developed organs of the human body in both sexes and that it grows in size(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish early postnatal norms for the main measurements of the soft-tissue orbits for the Slavic Bulgarian population (9 million), we measured intercanthal (en-en) and biocular width (ex-ex) and length of the palpebral fissures (ex-en) in a representative sample of newborns less than six days old.

Age-related changes in width (cheilion-cheilion) and height (subnasale-stomion) of the upper lip are studied in 2300 healthy Bulgarians, with ages ranging from three days to 102 years, for the needs of cheiloplasty in both surgery and fine arts. As shown by the results, at birth the upper lip in either gender appears to be one of the most developed organs(More)
Gonion-gonion and gnathion-stomion parameters of the lower part of the face were examined in 2300 healthy Bulgarians aged 3 days to 102 years with a view to use the data for plastic surgery needs. Immediately after birth the width of the lower part of the face was found to make up in boys 70.50% of that in men aged 20-25 and in girls 74.6% of that in women.(More)
For the purposes of art as a whole and of plastic surgery in particular an anthropometric research of lateral surface and the edge of the ears has been carried out from 1975 to 1979 among 450 grown-up persons of Bulgarian origin ( male = 225, female = 225). Using an apparatus for cephalometrics constructed by the author of this study, compasses and(More)
