Wide and Square Jawline Los Angeles

Reducing the appearance of a wide jawline or slimming the lower face can help establish improved facial harmony and soften the more masculine and angular appearance of a square face into a more oval and feminine one.

Before and After Jaw Line Reduction

Some people, like Koreans, are genetically predisposed to have a wide jawline; others develop it through habits like teeth grinding and frequent gum chewing. Weightlifters and body builders may also overdevelop their masseter muscles. The masseter muscle is the main muscle responsible for chewing, teeth grinding, and clenching.

The most important criterion to determine if you are a good candidate for jawline reduction is the thickness of your masseter muscle. Another important aspect to investigate relates to your habits, which may predispose you to having a larger masseter muscle and a flared jawline. You can easily determine if your chewing muscle is enlarged by biting down hard and feeling the outer jaw line near the ear.

Although a jawline can be narrowed surgically, a cosmetic surgeon can deliver a comparable result by using Botox®. When injected into the masseter muscle, Botox® partially relaxes it. The underused muscle eventually loses its mass and shrinks.

Botox® injections into the masseter require no anesthesia or downtime and take about 6 weeks before you see the difference. Typically, about 25 units of Botox®, or equivalent Dysport® and Xeomin® units, are required for each side of the face. Results will last from 6 months to a year and a half, depending on several factors. Although rare, a few patients may experience a tiring feeling after chewing for a while. This phenomenon is only temporary and will go away over time.

It should be pointed out that Dr. R. Dishakjian, the cosmetic surgeon at Nu Vela, has been sought after by many patients of different races seeking jawline reduction through the use of Botox® Cosmetic.
