The article focuses on a photographic study to evaluate frontal and profile soft tissue facial parameters of southern Chinese adolescents, and to compare the results with other racial standards. To improve the diagnosis and treatment planning of patients from different ethnic and racial backgrounds, frontal and profilometric examinations were performed on 42 male and 42 female Chinese adolescents. Results reflect that with the exception of Javanese population, all ethnic groups exhibited similar overall profile measurements. The Chinese sample showed considerable protrusive tendencies and a more convex soft tissue profile than the Thai or Javanese. The Chinese had narrower eyes and mouth, and a wider nose. There was wide individual variation in nasiolabial and geniolabial angles.
