(Full) Ante-face: Middle and lower face that protrudes forward to a great extent (e. g. Angelina Jolie), corresponding to our ideal of absolute beauty.

(Overview about the different profile types)
The term ante face was coined by the surgeon Prof. Sailer who also offers procedures to achieve an full ante face (maxillomandibular advancement). While its indisputable that an full ante face looks better from the profile view its still controversial whether it makes a real difference from the front view.
Any kind of retro face looks aesthetical unappealing both from the front view and from the profile view.
In order to see how whether you got a full ante face its necessary to take a profile shot in natural head position. if your Middle and lower face is beyond the so called Gonzalez-Ulloa line youve got an full anteface.
(Gonzalez-Ulloa line =vertical line dropped from soft tissue nasion, perpendicular to the Frankfort horizontal plane)
(Frankfort horizontal plane is defined clinically as a line connecting the tragion (the notch in the superior margin of each tragus) and orbitale (the lowest palpable point on the inferior orbital rim))
There are ethnic differences. Most caucausian people dont have an full ante face. it is more common under black and asian people.
