Profile Surgery


Some people have a very specific cosmetic complaint, such as a small nose or large jaw. In these situations, a single procedure can usually remedy the problem. However, it is not always so simple. If you are unhappy with your overall facial appearance, specifically your profile, a combination of techniques is needed. Many Asian women and men in Orange County visit Dr. Nguyen for profile sculpting. He has extensive experience a natural artistic eye, and a deep respect for the importance of preserving one's ethnic identity.

The goal of surgery is not to make an Asian person resemble someone of a different ethnicity. The goal is to create a harmonious, symmetrical, Asian facial profile. Every ethnicity has certain common physical features, which contribute to a person's identity, uniqueness, and beauty. Certain individuals are blessed with moderate, well-proportioned, well-balanced features that showcase the beauty of their ethnicity.

Unfortunately, among any ethnic group, many people have disproportionate, misshapen, imbalanced, or unattractive features, often caused by a less-than-ideal expression of natural ethnic traits. For example, the western face is characterized by a predominant nose with a high bridge, but many people have an overly large, angular, or unattractive nose. In correcting this, the surgeon does not attempt to make the face appear less western. Similarly, Asians are prone to small noses and chins, with wide jaws and high cheekbones. Dr. Nguyen understands that patients requesting correction of these features want to enhance, not disguise, their natural ethnic beauty.


Profile contouring is a very individual procedure, incorporating a variety of surgical techniques. It may include revision of the forehead, nose, chin, jaw, and cheekbones, as these are the features that define a person's facial profile. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthetic, which is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist.


You can look forward to enjoying a more attractive face, with harmonious features and natural contours. Women often experience greater confidence in their appearances with more delicate, feminine features. For men, the masculine features of the face can be enhanced and sculpted. Many patients are excited to post their new profile pictures of social media websites.
