A heart-shaped or oval face is aesthetically pleasing for a feminine appearance. When the jaw and lower cheeks are wider, it can create a square or heavy looking jaw. The masseter muscle moves the lower jaw up and down and can become larger, creating a square jaw. If you want to reduce the width of your jaw or lower cheeks, Shiraz Cosmetic and Medical Clinic offers Botox® for masseter reduction.
The masseter jaw muscle is extremely strong and is one of the largest muscles in the facial region. Some people are prone to large masseter muscles, creating a round or square face. To slim the jaw and create a heart or oval shape to the face, the masseter muscle can be reduced. This is accomplished by using a neuromodulator, like Botox, to relax the masseter muscle. Over time, the masseter can shrink in size, and the shape of the face can change.
