Facial sculpting with Botox Cosmetic to nonsurgically slim the jawline of a younger woman
Fuller cheeks and a slimmer jawline are desired by many Washingtonians. The face can be made thinner by modifying muscle, bone, or fat. In addition to treating wrinkles, Botox Cosmetic is also an option to slim the face for appropriate patients. Specialized techniques with Botox Cosmetic allow plastic surgeons to thin the jaw for patients with large jaw muscles. Result develop gradually, but persist for several months. Dysport or Xeomin, alternatives to Botox, may also be used to produce similar aesthetic results.
This Washington area professional had felt her lower facial area was too wide and "fat", which distracted from other facial features such as the eyes and cheeks. She consulted with cosmetic surgeon Dr. Chaboki to review cosmetic options. Examination revealed good cheek bones, but enlarged lower jaw muscles (masseter). She underwent Botox jaw reduction, a quick office procedure. After photographs demonstrate slimming of the lower face and restoration of facial balance. A secondary effect is that her cheeks appear fuller now, since attention is taken away from the lower face. A more balanced and feminine appearance was achieved with jaw reduction.
