Objectives: Aesthetic profiloplasty focuses on patients with normal dental occlusion and summarizes the association of a rhinoplasty and genioplasty. The aim of our study is to analyze the dysmorphoses overall profile, as well as different surgical techniques. This also allows to validate a method of analysis and construction of an aesthetic project based on a profile photograph. Materials and methods: This is a retrospective study of 101 adult patients undergoing profiloplasty at our institution over a period of 35 years. Results: 18 patients (17.8%) had an abnormality of the nasofrontal angle, 62 (61.3%) abnormal and the nasolabial angle 101 a chin dysmorphia. Conclusion: We studied profiloplasty focusing on its borders, first of all the nasal profile and then the facial profile with the chin. Our profilometric building is simple, didactic and to obtain a good cosmetic result. The Marseilles School Pech and Cannoni was intended, regarding rhinoplasty, trying to get a natural result for a consistent look. Through profiloplasty we continued this teaching of "natural reworked" to achieve the most harmonious profile.
