Services 》Lower Face Contouring

In modern esthetic view, oval face is a preferred face profile.  The lower facial profile in front view is determined by bony structure (lower jaw, or mandible) and masseter muscle which is attached on lateral side of lower jaw.

There are two ways of treating square face.  One is bone surgery, which shaves the mandible angle.  The other is Botox injection to masseter muscle to shrink the thickness of masseter.  Below right show the result of mandible angle reduction.


Botox injection is a less invasive way to slim face.  Botox can reduce the thickness of masseter muscle.  The thicker the masseter muscle, the higher the dose.  The effect of slimming face is more obvious in people with thick muscle.  But the effect lasts about 6 months.  Below show the location of masseter and the result after Botox injection (below right is after injection) .

Bone surgery can correct people with prominent zygoma.  The other way is fat injection into depressed cheek or temple.  It is less injection and less risky.  Below show the result of fat injection.

  • Q: I feel that my brow bones between my eyebrows are too convex. I want to lower it and make it flat. I heard that many nerves pass there. Will it return to normal after some time? Is this a bone shaving or what kindelse?
    A: Anatomically, the medial brow bone is empty, the bone is thin, and inside is the cavity (frontal sinus). It is not easy to treat frontal sinus.The lateral brow bone is solid and can be shaved. Some nerves will pass through the brow bone, and there may be some numbness (temporary) after the operation. Raising the nose is another consideration, it can balance the protrusion of the brow bone. Raising the depression on forehead with autologous fat has the effect of modifying the brow bone.

    Q: I am a boy with a protruding brow bone near the eye. May I ask the doctor to shave my brow bone?
    A: The protrusion of brow bone is often caused by the frontal sinus (the cavity under the thin bone). This part cannot be treated by osteotomy. It is a characteristic feature for man. I do not recommend you to treat that. If your frown muscle is too big, you may consider to have botulinum toxin injection to reduce muscle bulk.
