Changes on our face when we grow

Postby sshasi009 » Thu Mar 13, 2014 5:20 am

What changes does parts of our face make when we grow up ? Lets see on nose, eye or ear ? Can we find out the age of person by measuring or seeing any parts of any person ??

Guess it depends on the individual in question, but unlike bone cartilage will continue to grow through our lives. You have may noticed that older people have proportionally larger noses and ears since their internal structure is mostly cartilage. I guess you could use this to estimate how old somebody was.
