I am moving few custom fields from sandbox to production using changesets. Everytime i do this i need to go to each field and make them visible..

Is there a way i can say these have to be visible to all the profiles?

Maybe i am missing something elementary out here...

If you migrate the Profile metadata with the custom fields all FLS security data should be transferred along.

    We probably need to be careful if the sandbox is not recently updated, then the chance of erasing the changes in production for the profiles might be lost. Is there a way to specifically move profile data only for these objects.. i guess No

    I don't think you can move just the profile metadata for those objects. I agree you have to be careful deploying profiles, it's something I've always avoid due to how easily they get out of alignment between production/sandbox/source control
