Contouring the face with Botox

Thank you for your question tattoobarbiedoll. Botox is a great treatment for wrinkles and can be used to contour the face. Botox can be injected into the masseter muscle to make the muscle smaller. This works well for people to want to contour their lower face from a square shape to a more softer heart shape. I recommend consulting with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Jawline contouring with Botox

Botox injected into the masseters and along the platysma can be used to contour the jaw. Botox can be combined with filler injections in certain cases as well. I would consider an in-person consultation with an expert injector. 

Botox and facial slimming

Botox is amazing for facial slimming when injected in the masseter muscle.  Please consult an expert for this advanced technique.  Best, Dr. Green

More oval look desired.

Botox injected into the "angle of the jaw" debulks the masseter muscle making the area less angular.  I can't grasp why weight loss would have made your face more oval and find that confusing.  It looks like your jaw has a bony prominence in that region so to assess the benefit of botox one would need to palpate the jaw muscle while you are clenching to determine how helpful it might be.
Best advice is to meet with a plastic surgeon or dermatologist to be evaluated.

How to Soften Jawline?

10 kilos is a significant weight change so it follows your face would change in shape. I think your face shape is quite pretty as it is! If you really are down about it and want to effect a change, you could have Botox injected into your masseter muscles to slim the face in the area of the jawline. It will take multiple treatments up to 1 year and perhaps some maintenance injections thereafter. Wishing you continued good health!
