Distances of the facial width (zygion to zygion), total face height (trichion to gnathion), short forehead height (trichion to glabella), long forehead height (trichion to nasion), upper face height (trichion to subnasale), morphological face height (nasion to gnathion), nasal bridge length (nasion to pronasale), nose height (nasion to subnasale), and lower face height (subnasale to gnathion) were computed in this study [Figure 1].
In the case of the length of the ear, the variables taken into consideration were nasion to subnasale, glabella to subnasale, glabella to trichion, and subnasale to gnathion distances.
