Facial symmetry analysis is complex in both computer vi-
sion and medicine. This paper presents a method to com-
pute the plane of symmetry for 3D meshes of the human
head and face through learning. The two steps of processing
include: 1) landmark-related region detection and 2) sym-
metry plane computation in the learning stage, which uses
the landmarks and the standard symmetry planes identified
by medical experts for training. Experimental results show
that our method performs better than the existing mirror
