This study determined facial soft tissue norm for Urhobos adults by means of vertical and angular measurements usually used for aesthetic treatment goals. In addition gender differences were tested. Standardized photographic record of 120 (60 male, 6o females) Urhobos young adults between 18 and 35 years were taken in the natural head position using a digital camera. The measurements of the vertical and angular parameters were done with the aid of a ruler and protractor. The Urhobos males had a mean percent ratio of 42.273.71 for middle face and 57.733.63 lowers face. The mean values of nasofrontal angle was 117.759.07, 40.776.29 for nasofacial angle, 121.957.93 for nasomental angle and 93.333.27 for mentocervical angle. The females had a mean percent ratio of 43.513.66 for middle face height and 56.493.69 for lower face height. The nasofrontal angle was 127.859.50, nasofacial angle 35.607.46, nasomental angle 126.556.93 and mentocervical angle 90.883.58. There w as sexual dimorphism in all measured parameters except the lower face. This study shows that as in other populations, vertical and angular variable that defines the soft tissue profile are sexually dimorphic. In addition, the middle face of Urhobos is lower that that of the Himachalis and North Americans.
