Botox for wide lower cheeks when smiling? (Photo)

Botox for the masseter
Masseter muscle reduction with Botox
I do not believe that your masseter muscles are prominent enough (based on the 2nd picture) such that masseter muscle reduction will reduce the 'puffing out of your cheeks when you smile'.
Botox for puffy lower cheeks
the fullness is being created by the muscles pulling at the corners of the mouth and lower lip. When they pull to the side and down they cause the lower cheek tissue to "puff out". These muscles can be treated with Botox to reduce the amount of cheek tissue displacement by reducing the muscle pull at the mouth.
Keep in mind that these injections will alter the shape of your smile causing less show of the lower teeth, so be certain your injector has expert knowledge of facial aesthetics and anatomy.
