Profiloplasty is a treatment that involves several non-surgical procedures combined in order to balance an individual's facial features and improve their side profile.


Available Treatments


The nose is the central feature of the face and plays a crucial role in maintaining facial balance. 

Dermal filler can be used to enhance the shape and size of the nose in proportion to the chin and other facial features.


Contouring the cheeks with dermal filler helps to improve the overall appearance of the facial profile. By adding volume to the cheeks, fillers can help lift and contour the face, which can improve the appearance of the jawline and reduce the appearance of sagging skin.


Lip filler can subtly and naturally enhance your lips and improve your overall facial profile. By adding volume to your lips you can improve the alignment of your nose, lips and chin to achieve the perfect side profile.



Over time, saggy skin under your chin called jowls can appear. Dermal fillers can be injected into the hollow between the chin and the jowl, masking the gap by providing a smooth transition from the chin to the jaw line.



Having a smaller chin in proportion to your nose will make the nose appear more prominent and compromise your facial balance. When dermal filler is strategically placed into the targeted areas of the chin, it will add volume and make the chin appear more substantive.


What is a Profiloplasty

Profiloplasty or Profile balancing treatment is designed to improve the balance and harmony between your facial features, creating a more defined side profile.  This treatment approach focuses on harmonising your facial features by making subtle changes to your silhouette. This then creates a significant difference correcting imbalances between your nose, chin, lips, cheeks, and jawline. This non-surgical approach to improving your silhouette uses dermal filler to emphasise certain features and improve your overall profile. By using dermal fillers to strategically add volume, features can be subtly yet effectively realigned to give a harmonious appearance between your key features.


This is an individualised treatment, fulfilled with the custom prescription of dermal filler based on the optimum result being achieved for the patient. During your consultation with your clinician a full facial assessment will be carried out to formulate the ideal treatment to achieve the best profile balancing outcome. About 15-20 minutes before the treatment takes place, a prescription anaesthetic cream is applied to the injection sites. The filler is then injected at precise locations before the skin is massaged to smooth the material. The whole treatment takes around 30 minutes. Results can be seen immediately, and you will be given a mirror to see the difference as soon as the treatment is finished.


The treatment is suitable for anyone who is unhappy with aspects of their facial profile or who want to enhance their facial features. However, this treatment should be avoided by anyone with muscle problems; nerve damage; or who is pregnant or breastfeeding.

Depending on the areas treated and the metabolism of the patient, results can last from 6-12 months.


Profiloplasty or profile balancing is a popular approach to improving your side profile without the need for surgery. Dermal fillers are an excellent tool to balance your facial features and improve your overall appearance. Many patients don’t want an invasive treatment so this non-surgical option is the perfect solution.


Yes Profiloplasty uses dermal fillers which are made up of molecular structures of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance already taking place in the body, there is a significantly decreased risk of an adverse reaction, and so this is a very safe treatment.


By strategically placing dermal filler in certain areas to add volume and improve the shape, the overall facial profile is harmonised. Subtle changes can drastically improve the appearance of your side profile. During your consultation your clinician will look at your nose, lips and chin to assess if they are creating an unbalanced profile. Jawline and cheek filler can also help to achieve optimal results.


If you suffer from cold sores, make sure that you have an oral prescription prior to your treatment as it may provoke an outbreak.

Common injection related effects may include:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Itching
  • Discolouration
  • Tenderness

These symptoms should resolve in 2-7 days.


Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen or Advil for two days after treatment; also, avoid them for one week prior to treatment

Do not use ice on swollen areas after treatment

Avoid exercise, except for walking, for 24 hours after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

A profiloplasty is an aesthetic treatment that involves the use of dermal fillers to improve the appearance of the nose, lips, chin, cheeks and jawline areas to achieve a more balanced and harmonious facial profile. 

During a dermal filler profiloplasty, a skilled practitioner injects a hyaluronic acid-based filler into targeted areas of the nose and surrounding tissues. The filler can be used to add volume and contour to the nose, smooth out irregularities, and provide lift and support where needed. The result is a more refined, proportionate facial profile.

It is important to note that while dermal filler profiloplasty can produce impressive results, it is a non-surgical procedure with temporary effects. Patients will need to have repeat treatments to maintain their results over time. Additionally, this procedure is not suitable for individuals who require significant structural changes to the nose, such as those with a deviated septum or other underlying nasal deformities. In those cases, a surgical rhinoplasty may be necessary.

The amount of dermal filler used in a profiloplasty can vary depending on the specific needs and goals of the patient. The volume of filler needed to achieve the desired results will depend on factors such as the patient’s anatomy, the degree of correction required, and the type of filler used.

Typically, the amount of filler used in a dermal filler profiloplasty can range from 1 to 3 mL. However, in some cases, more filler may be needed to achieve optimal results. It is important for patients to have a consultation with one of our Doctors who can assess their individual needs and determine the appropriate amount of filler to use.

The duration of the results from a non-surgical profiloplasty can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of filler used, the amount of filler injected, the patient’s individual anatomy and metabolism, and how well they take care of their skin.

In general, the effects of dermal fillers used in a non-surgical profiloplasty can last anywhere from six to eighteen months. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers tend to last on the shorter end of this range, typically six to twelve months, while more robust fillers such as calcium hydroxylapatite or poly-L-lactic acid may last up to eighteen months or longer.

It’s important to note that dermal filler treatments are not permanent and will require regular maintenance sessions to maintain the results over time. Additionally, individual results may vary, and some patients may experience a longer or shorter duration of effect based on their individual factors. It is important to consult with a qualified practitioner to determine what to expect for your specific case.

Could not recommend Eden Medical, Dr Emma and Valerie enough and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have treatments done. They are so welcoming and friendly, you are put at ease the minute you arrive at the clinic. I am over the moon with the results from my visit, better than I could have even expected!!! Dr Emma is so knowledgeable and gave me great advice on what treatments would suit me but with no pressure to have to have those treatments done if I did not want to myself. The treatment I had done was virtually pain free. I will 100% be back. 5 star clinic 💫💫💫💫💫

I have been to Dr.Emma in the cork clinic for lip fillers a few times now and I honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else. Anytime I go to my appointment she makes me feel at ease straight away she’s so professional and very gentle. In the past I’ve went to different clinics and the difference in results definitely shows in terms of her professionalism and knowledge, to hygiene and technique.

I went to Eden medical for my first ever treatment of anti wrinkle injections and I could not recommend them enough. They are so friendly and helpful. I was really nervous going in for the first time and they made me feel super comfortable. Dr.Cliona took the time to talk me through everything pre injection and post injection. My treatment was amazing. I was given a follow up check a few weeks later to see how I was getting on too. Their premises is also fab. I can’t wait to go back. 🙂
