This study examined associations between male facial features and body symmetry as well as facial symmetry in samples from 141 men and 154 women. 

One component of the facial features that discriminates the sexes and clearly reflects the facial masculinization with symmetry in males. No significant correlation was observed in women. These results indicate that the facial muscles of the males partially indicate the underlying developmental stability.*
