Prior informed written consent was obtained from subjects. Inclusion and exclusion criteria for the study were predefined. The purpose of study was to create, evaluate data on face anthropometry. Two measurements, the morphological facial length, bizygomatic breadth were taken by using standard anthropometric instruments. From the study it was concluded that the mean morphological facial length was 11.07cm in male and 10.21cm in female. Bizygomatic breadth was 13.08 cm in male & 12.35cm in female. The facial index (mean) was 86.09 in male and 84.84 in female. So all the measurements were more in males as compared to females. It was concluded that the dominant type of face shape in males was mesoproscopic (49.66 %) followed by euriprosopic (24 %), leptoprosopic (12.33 %), Hypereuriprosopic (11 %) & Hyperleptoprosopic (3 %). In females the dominant type of face was also mesoprosopic (35 %) followed by Hypereuriprosopic (25 %), euriprosopic (19.33 %), leptoprosopic (19 %) and hyperleptoprosopic (1.66 %). Data of this study will be useful to anthropologist, plastic surgeons, anatomists and forensic experts.
