Discover the vital information you MUST know about side profile enhancement with our detailed guide written by expert cosmetic doctors.


    A side profile enhancement is a treatment aimed at improving the aesthetics of your profile. It may use a combination of cosmetic injectables, focusing on areas like the nose, chin, jawline, and cheeks.

    A non-surgical side profile enhancement typically involves dermal filler injections, targeting the following elements:

    • Smooth out bumps or indentations on the nose.
    • Define and refine the jawline for a sharper contour.
    • Add volume to the cheekbones for a more balanced and youthful appearance.
    • Enhance the chin projection for better facial harmony.
    • Plump your lips, improving projection and fullness.
    • Contour the shape of your forehead.

    In some cases, fat dissolving injections may also be used to reduce excess under chin fullness. This helps to define your lower side profile and neck contour.

    Key steps in a side profile enhancement

    1. Consultation to discuss your concerns and goals
    2. Designing your treatment plan
    3. Injections of dermal filler/fat dissolver
    4. Aftercare

    You can expect to see an immediate result from your treatment, although fat dissolving will take up to 8 weeks to settle and may need multiple treatments.
