Botox for masseter muscle

Try Dr. Andrew Blitzer, an excellent specialist for Botox in the head and neck. There can be side effects so make sure yoiu discuss this thoroughly before you have the treatment.  Can it weaken your normal chewing? Can it make you look asymmetric? (one side different from the other?) It will have to be redone as Botox is not permanent. This is an advantage should there be a side effect you don't like.

The bottom line is that you should go to someone who you feel comfortable with and who's prices are reasonable.  If you ask a dermatologist who you should see for these types of injections, they will say a dermatologist.  If you ask an oral surgeon, they will say see an oral surgeon.  And yes, if you ask a plastic surgeon, guess what, they will say see a plastic surgeon.  You are the only one who can make that decision!

Botox for Masseter Muscle

Botox can be a very effective treatment for masseter muscle hypertrophy or tightness.  It is very important that you are evaluated and treated by a board certified physician specifically trained in the expanded uses of Botox.  While there are many cosmetic uses for Botox, masseter muscle treatment is complex and should not be attempted by just anyone.  We have several patients who have been effectively treated with Botox for masseter hypertrophy.  However, we would need to evaluate you to make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment.


Good Luck.

Please remember that the experience and technique of the physician doing the Botox injections (or any other cosmetic treatments) is the most critical part of your achieving a beautiful, natural result. You should not make your choice based on the physician's specialty. The effectiveness of your Botox and/or filler treatments will depend on your physician’s ability to visualize the desired changes and to select and skillfully administer the best treatments alone or in combination.
