Dr. Ogoun Timipa Richard*

ABSTRACT

Human beauty and handsomeness is more characterized by facial architecture. This study is aimed at specifying and contrasting face type of amongst people residence in Gas flaring and Non-gas flaring areas in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, Nigeria. A cross-section of 1000 adult volunteered subjects (550 male and 450 females) within the ages of 18-45 years were considered. Measurements such as Total Facial Height [This is the measured distance from nasion to gnathion], Facial Breadth [The measured distance between the right and left zygion [bizygomatic breadth] and Facial Index [facial height divided by facial breadth multiplied by 100] were done from five [5] gas flaring communities such as Oporoma, Tebidaba, Ogboinbiri, Peremabiri and Koluama and five [5] Non-Gas flaring communities such as Ekowe, Nangi-Ama, Anyama, Oweikorogha and Amassoma. Results showed male and female mean facial height of the Gas flaring communities as 191.69±0.90 and 181.74±1.33. There was statistically significant difference between the two sexes (P<0.05). Their facial breadth was 128.67±1.09 for male and 125.97±1.23 for female, but no significant difference was recorded (P>0.05). While the facial Index for males and females from the Gas flaring communities are 148.97±1.16 and 146.27±1.52. The difference in their mean was significant (P>0.05). The facial height for male and female from the Non- Gas flaring communities are 188.61±1.32 and 185.79±1.04. There was exist statistically significant difference amongst their mean (P>0.05). Their facial breadth is 134.02±0.97 for male and 129.51±1.04 for females and was also significant (P<0.05). The facial index for male and female is 141.69±1.44 and 144.32±1.33 and no significant difference was recorded in their mean (P>0.05). The study has shown 100% of both the males and females from the Gas flaring communities possessess Hyperlepstosprosopia [Long face]. For the Non-gas flaring communities, 0.8% of the males possess Euryprosopia [Broad face]. while 99.2 % the males have Hyperleptoprosopia. On the other hand, 100% of the females population from the Non-gas flaring communities also possess Hyperleptoprosopia [Long face].This study is useful in esthetic and prosthodontic treatment.
