Masseter Botox. Is 30-60 units per side an excessive amount?
Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, women look the most feminine, youthful and attractive with heart shaped faces. Heart shaped faces have cheeks that are full and round in the front. Cheek augmentation with a dermal filler or using cheek implants for a permanent enhancement will create full, round cheeks that will feminize the entire face. This would be combined with facial liposuction to further shape the cheeks.
A weak chin creates an imbalance making the nose appear larger, the mid face top heavy and the lower face look short that de-emphasizes the lips and allows early formation of a double chin. Chin augmentation using a chin implant will add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face. I have found that placement of a silastic chin implant, through a small curved incision under the chin (also allows excess skin removal) to be very safe, quick and highly effective.
These procedures would result in a more feminine and naturally attractive face while Botox to the Master will not, again IMHO. So, why waste the time and money getting Botox?
Hope this helps.

Do you have TMJ or teeth grinding? Do you want to reduce the bulk and fullness of the muscles?
I generally start with 12 -15 units up to 25 units per side.. You can always add more. .

I always recommend starting on the low side because you can always inject more later. In the average patient, I usually start with about 15-20 units of botox per side. Good luck!
