You can do botox again in about 3 months. I would refer to your surgeon and see what he/she says.
Masseter Botox after Jaw reduction surgery
Please consult with your surgeon first when it should be okay to do Botox. Botox is an off-label use (not FDA approved) in this area for jaw-shaping; and those with masseter hypertrophy it works well.

I would ask your surgeon when they feel it is ok to get the Botox. It is a good treatment to slim the face if there is masseter hypertrophy.

You should check with your surgeon who performed your jaw surgery. He may want you to wait until you are healed from your surgery a bit longer.
Botox for the masseter after surgery
Thank you for your question beabea91. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. In the lower face Botox can be placed in the masseter muscle to address TMJ and to contour the face. I would ask this question to your surgeon. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Hello and thank you for your question. Botox injection into the masseter can be very effective in this situation and can be safely performed at this point.
Best wishes and good luck.
