Botox Jaw Reduction NYC procedure reduces the appearance of a wide jaw line by weakening the masseter/chewing muscles. It gives a softer angle to the jaw and a more pleasing facial shape.
The diagram on the right depicts the weakining of the chewing mussle before and after the treatment. The procedure is commonly applied to both male and female candidates.
The photographs below also depict the Botox treatment on two male patients, however the treatment is just as suitable for female patients.
Who is an appropriate candidate for the Botox Jaw Reduction or Botox for TMJ?
Dr. Vafa will be able to best assess your candidacy during a complimentary consultation. However generally, any person who has excessively wide jaws due to large chewing muscles and would like to slim his/her face is the candidate for this procedure.
How does Botox for jaw line reduce the size of my jaws?
When Botox is injected into the muscle it partially relaxes it. Underused muscle eventually loses its mass and reduces its overall size.
Will I have problems chewing my food?
Although rare, few people may experience some tiring after chewing for a while. This phenomenon is only temporary and will go away over time.
Is the procedure painful?
Since the smallest available needles are used, minimal to no discomfort is felt during the procedure.
What is the downtime after Botox Jaw Reduction procedure?
As with any procedure involving needles, there is a small chance of mild bruising or mild transient redness at the area of injection. There are generally no restrictions in your activity thereafter.
When will I see a difference and how long will the result last?
At the end of the first week, you may notice that your jaw line feels softer. In about 6 weeks you will notice a reduction in your jaw line that will last typically between 6 months to a year and a half.
