Botox For Masseter Reduction

As a thick, rectangular muscle in the face that helps individuals chew food, the Masseter connects the lower jawbone to the cheekbone. Divided into two sections, the thick portion that connects to the cheekbone is notably more “bulky” for some individuals, causing them to have portions of the masseter removed surgically. However, Botox injections provide a non-surgical treatment to reduce the “flare” and width of the jawline, creating a more pleasing, symmetrical appearance. Most importantly, Botox produces long-lasting results without compromising the strength of the jawbone.

When injected appropriately, Botox weakens the masseter, or chewing muscles. In effect, this generates a softer, slimmer jawline. Do you feel as though your jaw is too square? Would you like to acquire a V shape, or more defined cheekbones? Botox Injections may help give you a look that you’ll love.

Dr. Maurice Khosh understands that for the right candidate, Botox for Masseter Reduction will help accentuate their unique beauty, while bringing harmony to the face. If you have excessively wide jaws or if you would like to obtain a slimmer look to your face, you can trust the meticulous skill and elegant artistry of Dr. Khosh.

Face-Slimming Treatment

As a non-surgical, face-slimming treatment, Botox is injected into the masseter muscle on each side of the face at specific points. Typically, this includes 1-3 injections per side, and is a very short procedure (less than 5 minutes). For most patients, results are noted between 2-4 weeks.

To better understand how Botox slims the face, consider how the size of muscles decreases as they are underused. To initiate this result, Botox is injected to relax the masseter muscle. As the muscle is not used, it loses its mass and the overall size reduces. For individuals that have “chubby cheeks,” or are seeking a narrower, V shape to their face, Botox injections are a simple and safe, non-invasive solution.

Having extensive experience with Botox for both aesthetic and non-aesthetic benefits, Dr. Khosh believes that these injections may improve common facial features that distract from your natural beauty. Thus, if you feel as though your cheeks are too wide, too full, or if you are dissatisfied with your jawline, contact Dr. Khosh today to schedule a consultation.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
