How can I reduce my square jaw and get a V-shaped face?
More often than not, the masseter muscle – the thick muscle along the jawbone that moves during chewing – is responsible for the appearance of a square jaw. Botulinum Toxin A injections can be administered to this muscle, causing it to shrink, in turn resulting in a sharper jawline.
For further enhancement, hyaluronic acid fillers can be injected to sharpen your chin, achieving your ideal V-shaped face.
How soon will I see results?
The time taken to see results vary depending on patients and their corresponding masseter muscle bulk. It is recommended to have follow-up injections over a 6 – 9-month period to sustain results.
Are there any side effects?
Some of the more common side effects include slight bruising, swelling, and bleeding at the injection area, but these should subside within a few days. Some patients may also experience a dull aching sensation over the treatment area, but this too tends to subside within a few days.
Rarer side effects include headaches and flu-like symptoms, but these are very unlikely.
Am I a suitable candidate?
While square jaw reduction is suitable for the majority of patients, it is important to be assessed by a medical professional to ensure that your square jaw is caused by your masseter muscles, instead of your jawbone. If your jawbone is the issue, then surgery remains the only option.
Square jaw reduction is not recommended for those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or suffer from neuromuscular diseases.
