How to Get a Better Side Profile | 6 Things EVERYONE Should Do
People often joke about having a picture taken on their "good side," but this is actually true.
Most of us have uneven faces, which is also true of our hands, feet, and even our lungs!
Even though the differences may be minor, the overall effect is an unbalanced or asymmetrical look.
Research has shown that a symmetrical face is what most people consider attractive.
Using a Phi ratio scale, I found celebrities like Bella Hadid, Will Smith, and Brad Pitt have the most symmetrical faces.
And just in case you are wondering, the Phi ratio is a way to "measure" and grade the size and alignment of your facial features.
The closer you are to 100 on this scale, the more "typically attractive" you are.
It's an exciting idea to think about, but beauty comes in many forms, and having an asymmetrical face is one of them.
However, it's possible that you have attractive features, yet you have an odd side profile.
Your overall facial alignment and side profile significantly impact how you look.
Many people are self-conscious about the appearance of their jawline and chin, even if they have a lovely smile.
If you are concerned about your side profile, this article is for you.
What's A Good Side Profile?
A good side profile is made up of a sharp nose and a sharp jawline.
You can also include your chin and forehead.
What Makes A Side Profile Attractive?
When assessing any face shape, I prefer to consider not only the front profile but also the side profile, as well as the transverse and vertical proportions.
Your side profile is affected by:
- The position of your lips
- The angles of your face
- The length and shape of your nose
- The definition of your jaw
- The placement of the teeth
Why Is My Side Profile So Odd?
The position, size, and form of your nose, chin, lips, forehead, brow, and cheekbones determine the overall appearance of your side profile.
Some of these traits are passed down from parent to child.
Injuries and birth defects can also affect how the front and side profiles line up and are balanced.
If you can relate to any of these conditions below, you might want to think about orthodontics and other treatments:
When the lower jaw is pushed back, and the person has a small chin, this is called an overbite. When viewed from the side, the chin seems too small compared to the other parts of the face.
When viewed from the side, a person with a big chin has an under-bite, and the lower jaw stands out.
You may want to fix your side profile to make it look better.
Sometimes, you may need treatments and surgeries because the misalignment affects how your body works.
For instance, if your jaw is badly out of place, it can affect how you talk, eat, and smile.
In severe cases, an odd side profile can also cause pain and discomfort because of how the jaw moves.
Should I Fix My Side Profile With Jaw Surgery Or Orthodontics?
Before you decide that the only way to fix your side profile is to have side profile jaw surgery, talk to an orthodontist about other options.
Orthodontists can fix things like gapped teeth, crooked teeth, underbites, overbites, and more.
These small changes can also change your side profile.
Most orthodontic treatments help to realign the bite and teeth.
Improving the side profile comes as a nice bonus.
If you want to use the route to improve your side profile, please talk to your orthodontist about what you want to achieve before treatment starts.
This specialist can talk to you about your treatment options and, if necessary, refer you to a jaw surgeon.
How Do I Fix My Side Profile? 6 Things EVERYONE Should Do
Have you ever looked in the mirror and wondered, "Is that how I look from the side?" Well, I have.
And I'm guessing you have too.
It's not uncommon for many of us to get really bothered with our side profile.
Here are six things you can do to improve your profile and make it look like you have a stronger jawline.
1. Eat a balanced diet
You can reduce facial fat and get rid of a double chin by watching what you eat.
Eating healthy will improve your side profile a lot.
What you put into your system is what you get out: Eat healthy, look healthy.
Here are some suggestions for healthy foods to add to your diet:
- Eat four portions of vegetables daily.
- Eat three pieces of fruit every day.
- You should use whole grains instead of refined grains.
- Don't eat processed foods.
- Eat lean sources of protein like fish and chicken.
- Eat fats that are good for you, like olive oil, avocados, and nuts.
- Don't eat fried foods.
2. Exercise your jaw
Exercise is an essential part of getting a good side profile.
Cutting calories and losing weight doesn't just change how your jawline looks.
Many jawline exercises can help you lose fat on your face and tighten the skin on your face.
Do head twists, open and close your mouth repeatedly (make it more challenging by balancing a tennis ball between your jaw and neck), and make more of those funny selfie faces.
3. Dermal fillers
As we get older, we lose strength in the bottom half of our faces.
Dermal filler injections can be an option for people who want to give their jawline and chin more shape and definition.
Fillers for the jawline and chin can also help tighten skin on the neck and jowls.
One of the most attractive things about a person is a strong chin and jawline.
Dermal fillers can help you achieve that.
4. Non-surgical Rhinoplasty
The area along the nose, which is visible in the side profile, is also a source of insecurity.
When seen from the side, bumps and unevenness on the bridge of the nose can stand out the most.
A non-surgical rhinoplasty can help you get the perfect nose by balancing and smoothing out the nose and lifting the tip.
The procedure is safe because it isn't too invasive and doesn't require a general anesthetic, time off from work, or prescription drugs afterward.
There are slight risks with this procedure, which is why a qualified and fully trained specialist must do this type of treatment for it to be safe and work.
Want an even faster way to get a sharp jawline and a defined side profile?
The answer is simple—build your masseter.
The masseter is the jaw muscle on the side of your face.
Chewing is the best way to strengthen these jaw muscles and even tighten your neck muscles down to your collarbone.
There are two types of exercises that are safe and incredibly effective:
This is a molar-based jawline trainer and the best way to build your masseter muscle.

But, what is mewing?
Mewing means putting your tongue on the roof of your mouth and breathing through your nose.
Mewing says that your tongue should rest on the top of your mouth.
And that you should keep your head up and breathe through your nose, not your mouth.
This position is said to be a healthy and natural position for humans.
If you don't already "mew," you have some great things to look forward to.
Not only could you get a great side profile and a chiseled jawline, but you could also get a better definition of your facial and front neck muscles.
What Are the Benefits of Mewing?
Insane Energy Levels: Each breath takes in more oxygen and uses it better.
Get Taller: If you hold your head up and stand up straight, you'll actually get taller.
A calm and focused mind: breathing through your nose more will slow down your heart rate and
Deeper Sleep: Your body relaxes when you breathe through your nose and hold your tongue correctly. This causes longer times of REM sleep.
Better digestion: When you chew food the right way, it breaks down into smaller pieces that are easier to digest.
Dark Circles Disappear: Mewing gets rid of the "tired" look that many people have around their eyes.
Improved Side Profile: A stronger jawline and cheekbones that stand out more
