What is Masseter Muscle Enlargement ?
The Masseter Muscle is the muscle located in the jaw part, which is used to perform the chewing movement. Some personal habits can lead to the growth and enlargement of the Masseter muscle. These habits can be listed as excessive gum chewing and excessive consumption of hard foods, clenching teeth especially at night, grinding teeth and genetically hyperactive muscle.
Disadvantages of Masseter Muscle Enlargement
Masseter muscle can grow due to some habits. If these growths are abnormal, it causes the ovalness of the face to disappear and therefore a harder and masculine appearance occurs on the face. Masseter muscle enlargement can cause discomfort not only aesthetically but also functionally. Excessive growth of the masseter muscle causes problems such as headaches, teeth clenching and teeth grinding.
It is not a surgical procedure, but it should be performed by competent physicians.
Masseter Botox is an aesthetic procedure in which the Masseter Muscle, which grows for various reasons, is thinned. With Massetter Botox, deformities in the lower part of the jaw are corrected and functional problems are treated.
People face teeth grinding and clenching problems during periods of intense stress, especially while sleeping at night. In addition to these, situations such as hard foods consumed daily, excessive chewing gum cause the Masseter muscles to overgrow and disrupt the oval of the face. For this reason, the aesthetics of the face and chin deteriorate. Masseter Botox is a procedure performed to eliminate such aesthetic deterioration and functional problems.
