Jaw Reduction Surgery or Not

JAW REDUCTION is it for you…read on 

Many people have in the past opted for drastic Jaw Reduction Surgery to narrow the lower section of the face but is this major surgery really the only way of reshape your face? And do you really want to risk possible permanent unnatural results and long recovery times?

 The masseter muscle like any other muscle increases in size with exercise and this increase in size can contribute to a squarer jawline.  Regular gum chewing, teeth clenching or bruxism (grinding) can cause the muscle to enlarge.

Botox is now widely used to reduce the size of the masseter muscle, by injecting Botox into the enlarged muscle weakens the muscle so that it gradually reduces in size through atrophy over a few months. This in turn results in a narrowing of the face. 

Using Botox means that there is no long recovery time and the improvement is gradual so it isn’t immediately obvious to anyone that you have had any treatment done. 

Scentific studies show improvements start at 2 to 3 weeks, with softening of the jawline showing at around 6 weeks after the initial treatment.  Results continue over time with the peak improvement in your facial appearance showing for up to one year after injection.
