The Profileoplasty surgery performed in Clínica Sanza in Barcelona consists in correcting the facial features of the nose, chin, and cheekbones with the help of surgery. This way, it is possible to combine and bring to practice procedures such as a rhinoplasty, a mentoplasty, a malarplasty (midface implants) or a frontoplasty in one single surgery.
- Rhinoplasty, simple or complete, depending on what part of the cartilage must be corrected and/or reconstructed; either the nose osseo cartilage framework or bone. It is important to mention that a rhinoplasty doesn’t always have a reductive function; sometimes it is required to elevate the nose.
- A mentoplasty allows to reduce or increase the chin, mandibular angles or the whole mandibular line; it alters the underlying structure of the face, providing better balance to the facial features and a better appereance.
- A malarplasty refers to the aesthetic surgical technique that slightly increases the volume of the cheekbone volume by inserting a small prosthesis.
- The term frontoplasty or forehead surgery corrects the shape of the forehead.
Even though the basic procedure of a profieloplasty has just been explained, this intervention is a huge procedure, as broad as the face profile itself, therefore, this intervention can have an effect on different areas of the face, ranging from the forehead to the jowl. For this reason, there are many techniques that are used when performing the procedure of a perfiloplasty. These techniques can include small grafts or fillings (in some cases, small liposuctions in specific areas).Clínica Sanza in Barcelona, Spain, is a reference centre for profileoplasty surgery.

BARCELONA: A HEALTH HUB
Do you want to know why it is worth coming to Barcelona for plastic surgery and why so many people come from abroad?
People who feel unhappy with their physical appearance; with facial features that they might dislike or feel uncomfortable with.
People who desire a sex reassignment surgery, or have a facial feminization/masculinization surgery.
Each profileoplasty case is different and that is why each case has a different type of intervention.
Without taking into consideration the final retouch and the delicate areas, we only take into consideration this section: the forehead, the nose, the chin, the cheekbones, and overall the most relevant features of the face.
