Medical profiloplasty refers to the various types of aesthetic act used to improve the profile, making it more harmonious or gender-suitable, i.e. a masculine profile for men, and a feminine profile for women.
Profile improvement with hyaluronic acid and botulinum toxin injections
This technique needs an expert eye, with knowledge of the facial characteristics and proportions for each zone ( its width, height, projection and angles ).
All parts of the profile are treated :
– Forehead appearance ( see the relevant section )
Hollows are filled with hyaluronic acid, giving a rounded shape to the female forehead, and a rectilinear shape to the male forehead. The correct forehead projection and eyebrow position is established.

– Medical Rhinoplasty ( see the relevant section )
Lumps, hollows and wonkiness are corrected : a convex dorsum is created for men, and a concave dorsum for women.

– Medical genioplasty, chin projection
The projection criteria described in the ‘Chin’ file are respected.
A square shape is given to the masculine chin, and a straighter, more elegant shape is given to the feminine chin.

– Lip projection
Lips are a very important element for the face’s sensuality.
The following criteria are respected :
– The upper lip (or vermillion) should not be more than 2/3 of the size of the lower lip.
– The height of the upper lip should be 10-20% less than that of the lower lip.
– The upper lip projects 2mm beyond the lower lip.
-The white lip should be concave and the red lip should be convex.
– The naso-labial angle should be between 90°-95° for men and 110°-120° among women.
– In relation to Ricketts’ Line E (a line traced from the tip of the nose to the pogonium, the lower lip should lie 2mm behind this line, and the upper lip 4mm behind it.

Recommended applications of medical profiloplasty
It is ideal for correcting all forehead and nasal profile irregularities, the cheekbones, the chin and lip projection, and it can be used to modify the jawline and the nose.
It must be added that this technique only allows us to increase the volume of a facial feature, for example the forward projection can only be increased, not decreased. Surgery is required to reduce a chin’s forward projection.
Results are immediate and amazing, and last about a year and a half, and a little less for lips.
There are few side effects. Swelling is rare, and any light bruising will only last a few days.
