Botox for Round Face
Several factors create the shape of your face. Your bone structure, muscles and fat accumulation contribute to your face shape, often determined by genetics and lifestyle choices. If you have a round face or a broad lower face, it may not portray your desired look. There are non-surgical options to narrow the lower face to create a more oval or heart-shaped face. Our aesthetics team at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute offers Botox for round face treatment at our clinic near Lake Tahoe in Reno/Tahoe, NV.
One of the main features impacting the shape of the lower face is the masseter muscles. These are the strong jaw muscles that attach the lower jaw and skull, powering jaw movement. Pronounced masseter muscles, located on the outsides of the jaw, create a wider jaw or lower face. This can make the face appear round, or it can create a square, more masculine jaw. Botox injections are the top choice for masseter reduction treatment, slimming and contouring the face.
Slimming the Lower Face
Botox injections are used cosmetically to relax muscles in the face. For slimming the lower face to create a more oval or heart-shaped appearance, Botox injections relax the masseter muscles. This procedure can slim a round face or taper a wide jaw as the muscle reduces in size. The treatment takes about 10-15 minutes in our office, and a series of treatments may be needed to create long-term results.
If you want to reshape your round face and narrow the jawline, Botox injections may be the non-surgical solution.

We can schedule a consultation with Dr. Dayan to discuss masseter reduction using Botox treatment.
