Thank you for your question. There are injectible and surgical options to address your larger submandibular glands. I suggest that you consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon to learn more about your options, which are unique but not problematic because you are 26 years old.Best wishes,
Luna1990, See an ENT doctor first to make sure all you have in benign hypertrophy. Botox can help but needs to be done quite a bit. Shaving your SMG is something I routinely do in my deep plane facelifts and is an option but would be a last option. Search submandibular gland shave for more information. Good luck!
Small amounts of Botox can be injected into these glands to help shrink them.It will need to be repeated but will help. These glands are not major salivary glands so they can be shrunk.Otherwise surgery to trim them will be necessary and it is a deep and difficult surgery. Many surgeons will not do the surgery for fear of bleeding.
