How much can botox reduce my massater muscles and how many sessions of how many units does it take? (photo)
Doctor Answers 18
I am would like to make my face thinner so I think botox might be one option . Are there more options though?
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 using a dermal filler (I prefer Restylane Lyft) or with cheek implants for a permanent enhancement will create full, round cheeks anteriorly that will feminize the entire face.
When the chin is weak this creates an imbalance making the nose appear larger, the mid face top heavy and the lower face appear shorter which de-emphasizes the shape and fullness of the lips. Chin augmentation, using a chin implant, will add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face. I have found placing a silastic chin implant through a small, curved, incisions under the chin to be very safe, quick, highly effective and far less invasive than a sliding genioplasty that requires bone cuts with placement of screws and metal plates.
Hope this helps.

All the best,
I recommend shaving down the jawline
The botox units described by some of the doctors I would consider to be too high for most patients.
