Is it Time for a Profile Update?
The shape of your nose, lips, and chin and the way they are aligned make up your profile. When one or more of these elements are slightly unbalanced it affects how your profile looks, which can be more important to your overall appearance than you may realize.
Aging and the loss of youthful contours and definition in the face can also be particularly noticeable in the side view.
There are a range of both surgical and non-surgical treatments that can improve your profile and dramatically revitalize your look.
Below are facial areas that are key to your profile and treatments that can address common issues:
Chin, Neck, and Jawline
As we age, sagging in the neck area and jawline become more pronounced, while submittal fat under the chin begins to accumulate, known as the dreaded double chin. There are a number of procedures that can help correct these issues and help you achieve a smoother, more defined and harmonious silhouette.
Kybella is an injection that dissolves fat under the chin area. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes and usually require a series of several treatments.
For those who need more sculpting in the chin and neck due to excess, sagging skin, a facelift may be the recommended treatment option to help tighten the neck area and sharpen the jawline.
If you’re unhappy with the shape of your chin in general, fillers can also be used to actually reshape your chin to create a look that’s more flattering to your face.
There are several techniques to improve the nose so that it’s more attractive in profile. A quick, non-surgical option is an injectable nose job, which uses fillers along the bridge or tip of the nose to alter the shape and create a more balanced, streamlined-looking nose.
A rhinoplasty, or nose job, can correct a bump on the bridge of the nose or drooping tip, and dramatically re-shape the nose to reduce its size and prominence. Making the nose more proportional to the rest of your features can bring greater harmony overall to your face.
Well-defined cheeks are a facial feature often considered important to an attractive, youthful appearance. Age and gravity can cause the cheeks to droop and may lead to sagging folds around the mouth or a hollow, sunken appearance in the eye area.
Facial fillers such as Restylane, Juvéderm, and Radiesse add structural support to the mid-face to improve these issues. They create a more youthful contour to the cheeks, making them look fuller and more lifted in the profile.
It’s typical for lips to become thin and flat with age and when you look at yourself from the side, they can appear fairly nonexistent. Injectable fillers to enhance the lips can restore that lost volume, giving them a plumper and more youthful appearance. Increasing the lip projection can also shorten the distance between the nose and chin, which creates a younger look.
