Does bulking make your face bigger?

I'm sure I am losing fat because my abs is more defined and the layer of fat on them is thinner. I'm really concerned about it because I'm going to have dermal filler injections

Bulking up and facial muscles.

If you are bulking up and on steroids, I have seen excessive masseter muscle hypertrophy before. In fact I just had to Botox some masseter muscles in a female bodybuilder on anabolics. Like any muscle, an increase bulk can be seen, this can make your face bigger. 

Easy fix with Botox.
