This treatment approach focuses on harmonising your facial features through making subtle changes that create 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.
Some patients may find their chin is smaller in proportion to their nose and other facial features. This will make the nose appear more prominent and compromise your facial balance. Dermal filler can be used to augment the chin. When dermal filler is strategically placed into the targeted areas of the chin, it will add volume and make the chin appear more substantive.
The nose is the central feature of the face and plays a crucial role in maintaining facial balance. If your nasal tip is small, the bridge has a conspicuous bump, or the overall size of your nose is undermined in comparison to the chin and other facial areas, it can create facial imbalance.
Dermal filler can be used to enhance the shape and size of the nose in proportion to the chin and other facial features.
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.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
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 breastfee.

Many patients don’t want an invasive treatment so this non-surgical option is the perfect solution.
IS PROFILOPLASTY SAFE?
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.
HOW DOES PROFILOPLASTY WORK?
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.
Depending on the areas treated and the metabolism of the patient, results can last from 6-12 months.
