One key to having an attractive face is possessing features that are harmonious when taken in their totality. Modern, advanced non-surgical procedures can help many people achieve this look. Sometimes known as Profile Balancing, the term refers to several procedures that together harmonize the appearance of the face, particularly when seen from the side.
What is Facial Profile Balancing?
Facial Profile Balancing can define the:
At Symmetrik MD, we can accomplish nose reshaping, chin projection and/or elongation, cheek and jawline contouring, and lip reshaping and augmentation via non-surgical procedures using FDA-approved dermal fillers. Implant surgery and some types of dermal fillers can add volume to the cheeks, while lips can be reshaped or augmented with lip fillers.
Advantages of Non-Surgical Profile Balancing
One of the greatest advantages of undergoing a non-surgical Profile Balancing technique is that you will achieve virtually immediate results, with some additional improvement possible over the following days and weeks. And unlike surgical procedures, little to no swelling nor downtime is to be expected.
Other benefits of non-surgical Profile Balancing methods is that no surgery, incisions, nor general anesthesia are required. After undergoing traditional surgical techniques, patients must wait several months, in many cases, to achieve the results that they are looking for. In the meantime, they will be dealing with significant swelling and possible complications.
With non-surgical techniques, you will achieve almost instant results. And since no incisions are involved, you will be able to return to work or resume your normal activities immediately after your procedures, in most cases.
Non-Surgical Nose Job
It was not long ago that if you wanted a new nose, you needed a rhinoplasty procedure. And that was it. There were no other options available. The popularity of injectable fillers has given patients more treatment options than ever before. You can now transform your profile using a Non-Surgical Nose Job.
Dr. Fernandez uses a specific FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler to correct nose bridges, bumps, and tips, altering the shape of your nose so that it more closely fits in with the rest of your facial features.
Hyaluronic acid works by drawing moisture into soft tissues, such as the skin. This creates additional volume in the area to help reshape places like the nose. The results of a Non-Surgical Nose Job are temporary but can produce long lasting results. Results after a first Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty can last anywhere from eight months to 1 year, depending upon aftercare of the treated area and the individual metabolization of the product used. In one year, the results will still be in good shape and it is unlikely for the nose to have reverted back to its old shape entirely. At the second and future treatments for this procedure, like other non-surgical procedures, building upon existing results will lead to even better results that may last longer.
Although the results are not permanent, the Non-Surgical Nose Job has the advantage of letting you see what your results will look like before committing to follow-up treatment sessions or a surgical Rhinoplasty procedure. The Non-Surgical Nose Job procedure, as well as the other procedures we offer at Symmetrik MD using hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, is reversible. We have protocols in place to immediately revert any work done using hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, if necessary.
Lip Shaping and Augmentation
To provide a better shape for the lips, a non-surgical lip augmentation can be used as part of Profile Balancing. This technical and individualized procedure is helpful for enhancing the size, shape, and overall appearance of the lips.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can be injected with great precision using advanced techniques that cater to each patients’ unique anatomy to achieve each patients’ desired look for their lips.
Prior to performing your Lip Shaping and Augmentation procedure, Dr. Fernandez will be meeting with you in a consultation to get an understanding of what style or look that you are trying to achieve, whether it be to restore volume loss in the lips and define your lip shape for a professional and sophisticated look or to increase the vertical height of your pout for a sassy and sensual appearance.
Chin Filler for Projection and/or Elongation
Many people are fairly happy with their overall facial appearance until they see themselves from the side. A weak or receding chin can throw off the balance of your entire face. Fortunately, the non-surgical Chin Filler procedure can offer you a more harmonious facial appearance.
If you want to achieve a strong chin, but do not want to go under the knife, you are likely a good candidate for the non-surgical Chin Filler treatment.
To perform the Chin Filler procedure, Dr. Fernandez injects small amounts of a hyaluronic acid filler into your chin to improve the definition and projection in the area. If you wish, a local anesthetic can be applied to enhance your comfort.
Chin Filler offers results lasting anywhere from nine to twelve months, depending upon the specific product used and patients’ individual metabolization of the filler. To maintain your results, you would need a follow-up treatment session at a later date.
