I Want to Look a Bit Plumpier
Will Botox on my Jaw Line Make my Face Look Thin?

Botulinum Toxin (Dysport and Botox) will not plump face and is used to weaken muscles or atrophy/shrink them
IF you want to look a bit plumpier, than you need fillers to plump you rather than Botulinum Toxin (Dysport and Botox) which acts to weaken or shrink muscles.

Botox Cosmetic to Improve Jaw Line for Enlarged Muscles
Hi paigeexx in glasgow,
Botox Cosmetic has been used in the jaw line area to improve fullness of jaw muscle excess (masseter hypertrophy). Generally, the masseter muscle softens gradually over time with repeat Botox Cosmetic treatments. However, if you feel the jaw line area needs more volume or enhancement then Botox Cosmetic may not be appropriate. You may consider dermal facial fillers as a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment. Only after a comprehensive evaluation can a specialist help determine appropriate options for you. Best of luck!

Botox in jawline
This would be a good time to have a cosmetic consultation with an injecting physician. Botox in the jawline if done correctly and for that purpose, can be used as a method to streamline the face/given a narrower appearance. It sounds as if you want to have fillers- if you want it to look "plumper".
Sure, if injected in the masseter, the jaw line will look narrower.
Botox of the jaw
Botox can be used off-label on the jawline to decrease the pulling down of the jowls from the action of the neck platysma muscle . This shold not make the face look thinner. If it used in the cheeks to decrease hypertrophic masseter muscles (chewing muscles) then the face will look thinner.
You did not mention why you want botox on the jawline. Most of the time botox at the jawline is used for masseter hypertrophy to thin it out.
