Facial Contouring - What it is

Facial Contouring, facial sculpting procedure treatment

Facial contouring, also known as facial sculpting, is a procedure that reshapes the face to enhance or improve facial features and reduce the appearance of ageing. Changes are made to either the soft tissues of the face or bony structure, to improve the facial outline and profile. For example, women may desire a more tapered, youthful, V-shaped facial contour. Men, in contrast, may prefer a more prominent and chiselled jawline for a more masculine appearance.

There is no standard technique in facial contouring, and the surgery is tailored according to each patient’s face condition and desires. Some problems that can be addressed include:

  • Hollow cheeks or flat cheekbone
  • Square jaw
  • Receding / protruding chin
  • Asymmetry of the face
  • Lack of facial definition
  • Misshapen facial structure due to congenital facial deformities
  • Prominent ears
