BOTOX jaw reduction surgery is a recent innovation available in Honolulu, Hawaii, at the office of Dr. Shim Ching. The procedure involves using BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to soften and slim the jawline. For many, the jawline is prominent and out of proportion to the rest of the face. In most cases the BOTOX jaw reduction technique is preferable to surgery. It has minimal risk, especially when compared to an operation.
Can my jawline be reduced with BOTOX?
For many patients, a surgical procedure to reshape the jaw is not needed. A “V” shaped face is universally recognized as appealing and attractive. A V-shaped facial structure tapers from the cheeks to the chin. If you have inherited a wider or more protruding jawline, it may be possible to reshape your jaw structure with a series of BOTOX injections. The treatment relaxes the “masseter muscles” which, after BOTOX injections, will relax and become less prominent, leaving your face appearing slimmer. To determine if you can reshape your facial contour with BOTOX, meet with Dr. Ching at his private, luxury Honolulu clinic for a private consultation. If you are a good candidate for the procedure, you can expect three injections of BOTOX to be performed on each side. The changes in your look begin to appear in about eight weeks. You will need to undergo the procedure regularly to maintain your refined look.
