Profile aesthetics deals with the side-appearance of the face. The nose is the most prominent organ from a profile view; however, when the face is evaluated as a whole, the chin tip, the region between the two eyebrows, the forehead, the eyebrows, the cheekbones, the eyelids, and the lips are also important. Profile aesthetics aims to correct the compliance between the mentioned elements, making the side-appearance of the face aesthetic.
Despite having acquired a beautiful nose following rhinoplasty, if the tip of your chin is further back than normal, your facial compliance will be incomplete. Likewise, despite a beautiful nose, if you have a forehead further back than normal or a concave forehead, the beauty of your nose or face will be incomplete. Profile aesthetics may be applied in the same operation with rhinoplasty, which aims to eliminate the imperfections of the remaining sites of the face and emphasize the beauty of the nose.
In order to complete the missing volume, the fat tissue of the patient may be used; furthermore, ready-to-use materials such as chin prostheses or cheekbone prostheses may be used.
