The term profileplasty is used to describe a range of procedures, both surgical and non-surgical, that are designed to enhance the profile or side view of the face. The rise of social media has transformed everyday life, and we are more aware than ever of how our faces look in our image-based world. An increasing number of people are showing interest in improving the appearance of their profile or side view. Your profile is often only appreciated when others look at you from the side. We naturally want to look the best version of ourselves in any situation, whether on social media or face-to-face.
A profileplasty is a helpful term to describe a range of cosmetic procedures, both non-surgical and surgical, that can alter how the face looks from the side.
What procedures can be considered a type of profileplasty?
Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is the most popular profileplasty procedure. The nose occupies the central part of our faces, and even a subtle change in size or shape can significantly change our profile or side view. Whether it’s a droopy nose tip or a large bump on the bridge of the nose, the nasal profile can be dramatically improved with rhinoplasty surgery, which is why it is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the UK.
There are two types of non-surgical nose treatments that are designed to produce subtle enhancements, such as smoothening out depressions or bumps in the nose or helping to lift the tip of the nose. A non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as a liquid rhinoplasty, and a thread lift nose job are non-surgical profileplasty treatments commonly used for non-invasive nose contouring. Although these treatments can produce subtle enhancements, the only way to permanently change the structure of the nose is with a surgical rhinoplasty.

In many cases, people may be less sure about what bothers them in their side view, and it may not necessarily be their nose, especially if the nose is perfectly symmetrical. A desirable appearance of the face on the side view may also be determined by the distance between the different facial features and certain angles between them. For example, the distance between the nose and forehead or the angle between the chin and neck. Other important facial relationships include the angle between your chin and nose.
There are certain procedures that can improve the shape and size of the chin. Chin fillers using hyaluronic acid are a non-surgical way of enhancing chin contour. Chin fat transfer or chin implants are surgically invasive procedures, although they have the benefits of achieving permanent results. Lip fillers would also be considered a type of profileplasty procedure, and its surgical equivalent would be a lip lift to shorten the distance between the upper lip and the bottom of the nose.

There are several treatments available to restore cheek volume, such as cheek fillers, fat transfer or cheek implants. Contouring of the neck, chin or jawline can be achieved with chin liposuction, and this may be combined with FaceTite if there is mild skin laxity. More extensive surgical procedures include a surgical neck lift, and this is commonly combined with facelift surgery, of which there are several different types. The most common types of facelifts include mini facelifts, lower facelifts and deep plane facelift.
