What is Profiloplasty?

It is the correction of all the organs like nose, chin, lips and forehead forming on the face profile, in order to become compatible and meaningful with each other.

How to Decide for Prophiloplasty?

The most important factors to enable the face to match the golden ratio is the forehead-nose-chin triangle which is approximately 1/3 close to each other. If this ratio on the patient's face deviates too much, prophiloplasty can be considered.

Often, patients who are already planning to undergo an operation from a region such as the nose, chin or cheekbone, are advised by the doctor to have extra procedures within the prophiloplasty if there is a conflict of the total look. One or more of these procedures can be performed in a combined manner, in order to make the entire face proportionally compatible, especially for the patients who are planned to have a rhinoplasty surgery.

Endoscopic Eyebrow Lift

Endoscopic eyebrow lifting is a rapid operation that can be performed within prophiloplasty so that the beginning and end of the eyebrow are proportional to the face. Endoscopic eyebrow lift is performed under general anesthesia with small incisions made into the hair area without any risk of scarring or bleeding. It is frequently preferred as a complementary application in prophiloplasty surgery.

Eyelid Aesthetics (Blepharoplasty)

Skin excesses, sagging and bagging in the upper and lower eyelid, which lead to aesthetic impairment on the patient's face profile, can be regulated by blepharoplasty, and a tense and vigorous appearance can be provided in the area without scarring. This procedure can be performed under local or general anesthesia depending on the patient's preference.

Jaw Tip Surgery (Mentoplasty)

An aesthetic chin tip is another important factor that adds strength to the patient's profile image. A small and shorter chin tip may cause the patient's nose to be detected long and large, and a small chin tip may be perceived as the patient has double chin. In this case, the jaw tip can be enlarged or lengthened by inserting the implants made of special substances or by injecting the patient's own tissue. This tissue can be obtained from the areas with fat tissue such as abdomen and hips.
