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


    A side profile enhancement is a cosmetic procedure that improves the aesthetic appearance of your profile. It focuses on areas like the nose, lips, chin, jawline, and cheekbones. It is primarily done non-surgically using cosmetic injectables like dermal fillers and fat dissolvers.

    Some of the common indications for a non-surgical side profile enhancement are:

    • Smooth out bumps or indentations on the nose, like a hump or saddle deformity.
    • Define and refine the jawline for a sharper contour.
    • Add volume to the cheeks for a more balanced and youthful appearance.
    • Enhance the chin projection for better facial harmony.

    A side profile enhancement is popular due to the benefits, which include:

    • Quick and easy procedure, taking 10-20 minutes with no downtime.
    • Highly precise approach that can be tailored to your unique concerns and side profile goals.
    • Less invasive and safer than surgical options.

    If you’re considering a side profile enhancement, it’s important to clearly understand your concerns, motivations, and goals. Do extensive research to find the most experienced provider, and start with a consultation. You should be careful to have realistic expectations, and appreciate the limitations of cosmetic enhancements.
