Can Botox® Make A Face Slimmer?

Botox®, also called botulinum toxin type A, is a widely used medical aesthetic product that is used to reduce the signs of fine lines and wrinkles.  Made from the bacteria that causes botulism, it works by blocking nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity. Plastic surgeons nationwide have been using Botox® for the past two-decades but in a new twist on an old procedure, board certified Facial Plastic surgeon Nima Shemirani, MD of EOS Rejuvenation in Beverly Hills, CA is using this exciting product to help some patients achieve a more refined jawline, and a slimmer face.  The CBS award winning TV Show The Doctors recently interviewed Dr. Nima on this technique.

The jaw line is an important focal point for many people and visually balances the face.  A broad jawline may give the illusion of additional weight or fullness to the face, tightness of the jawline or other undesired appearances. Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon Dr. Nima Shemirani, injects Botox® into the jaw area causing some muscles to tighten, and other muscles to relax, ultimately giving the appearance of a slimmer looking face. For patients that suffer TMJ, or night teeth clenching this procedure can be of great help too.
