Botox® to Slim Round Face

You go to the gym to work out, sculpt muscles and keep them toned. This works for most every area of the body except your face. No matter how much you exercise, your round face will stay round. You could opt for surgical treatment, but that takes time and can be expensive. There is another option. You can decide to slim your round face down with Botox® treatment.

Botox is known for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but it can also be used to make a round face slimmer and more heart-shaped. This is good news for those round-faced individuals who have a desire to change their face shape.

Facial Shaping with Botox

The masseter muscles are located along the jawline. These muscles are used for chewing, grinding and clenching the teeth. When they are overused, they can become more prominent, making your face look wider and squaring off your jawline.

When Botox is strategically injected into these muscles they relax, and the jawline becomes less square-looking. Results of the treatment usually do not appear until about 10 to 14 days. Depending on your facial structure, dermal fillers may be used to plump up your cheeks to balance the look. Results last for about four to six months. It is recommended that subsequent treatments are continued at regular intervals to maintain the effects. These additional treatments should occur every three to six months.

In the past, surgery was necessary if an individual desired to reshape a round face. Along with the surgery came the time needed for recovery, and added discomfort and healing. Things have changed considerably since those days. Facial shaping using Botox does not require any downtime. You can resume your normal activities after treatment, although any strenuous activity should wait until a day later.

Find out more about facial shaping with Botox by scheduling a consultation appointment with Michele Rivard, PA, or Dr. Khosh at Creative Facial Aesthetics located in NYC. You can have a slimmer looking face without surgery.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
