Masseter Botox

home

The masseter muscle runs down both sides of the rear of your face from the cheekbones down to your jawline. It is an extremely important muscle that helps with chewing, smiling, and many facial expressions. It is also responsible for how prominent the lower jaws look and the broader structure of the face. Sadly, prominent masseter muscles give the face a masculine look, and many people look for a way to correct that. 

What is Masseter Botox Injection?

A cosmetic procedure that injects Botox into the masseter muscles on both sides of your face helping it relax and appear less prominent. It is a great procedure for people who have naturally looking wider jaws that look masculine and want an easy and safe way of fixing it. The effects will last for 3 to 6 months depending on how strong the muscles are, and with repeated use, the results can last much longer.

Can Everyone Undergo a Masseter Botox Injection?

Botox is a very safe treatment which has been performed millions of times since its introduction over 30 years ago

There are a few subgroups of patients for whom botox cannot be performed

  • If you are pregnant then botox cannot be injected, as it may lead to birth defects for the foetus
  • Patients who suffer for neuro- muscular disorders, such as Lambert Eaton syndrome or motor neurone disease. In these cases Botox may exacerbate the signs
  • If you have previously suffered from an allergic reaction to botox- This is very rare

How Long to Complete Recovery? 

Botox is a non- invasive treatment, so the downtime is typically minimal

  • For a few hours after the procedure avoid alcohol, exercise, massage and sauna. These activities may cause the botox to spread beyond the treated area and cause unwanted effects
  • The injections are not particularly painful, so painkillers after the procedure are not necessary
  • Immediately after the injections, there will be puncture points that settle down 10-20 minutes later
  • The effects of the botox start to appear in 3 days, and the maximal effect is felt in 2 weeks
  • At the 2 week point you will be invited back to the clinic where the effects of the botox can be assessed. The teeth grinding and masseter bulk will be analysed. Typically this is the end point of the treatment, and an appointment is rescheduled for 4-6 months

I had surgery in February with Doctor Faisal and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I went from 64kg to 95kg with gestational diabetes during two back to back pregnancies at age 40, and ended up with massive abdominal separation. Doctor Faisal was able to perform an extremely extensive abdominal muscle and hernia repair, combined with lipo and a cosmetic tummy tuck that has completely transformed not only my appearance but my confidence and physical strength also. My body now looks better than it did before I had children. I conducted extensive research for over 3 years on best plastic surgeon Dubai before I chose Doctor Faisal based on his qualification, experience, confidence in his ability to perform this surgery without the use of a mesh as well as his extremely reassuring manner. The recovery went smoothly and my scar is healing beautifully. Its low, neat, and I didn't experience any healing complications. To anyone that is on the fence, or hesitating about moving forwards with such a procedure, I definitely say- go for it! I wish I'd done it 3 years ago and gotten back into a bikini sooner. Thanks Doctor Faisal, I will miss you!

- I had my surgery just over a year ago, and I can honestly say that I would not have gone ahead with such a life-changing surgery if it wasn't for Dr Faisal and his amazing team. From my very first visit, I knew that if I did go ahead with the surgery it would be with him. Instantly he made me feel at ease and knew that he would take care of me through the entire process. The numerous visits, messages, emails and phone calls were all answered without hesitation and the entire team provided a fully comprehensive service. Dr Faisal, I cannot thank you enough. Thank you for helping me make this monumental decision and making my life better for it, I wouldn't have been able to feel the way I do about myself right now without you! I'm trying my best to not write an essay here, but I know these mere words do not do justice fr all that you and your team have done for me! Hopefully I will come by for a visit the next time I'm in Dubai! Sakira... Fellow LFC Supporter!

After extensive research and consultations for Plastic surgeons in Dubai, and a failed attempt a couple of years back, I finally encountered the amazing Dr.Faisal Salim, and I couldn’t be happier of my choice. It was a tough decision, to whom I would entrust this very important event in my life. Most of the information provided by the plastic surgeons I’ve met in Dubai, is more or less the same, but Dr.Faisal stood out from everyone else right away from my first consultation. He is extremely caring, empathic and extremely knowledgeable in his field. He was ready to answer all my questions, some of them even before I asked! He reassured me and made me feel at ease. I knew right away after my first consultation that he was the one. We met several times after that, to discuss in further details my decision to go ahead with the surgery, and he was always outstanding, as the first time we met. He asked what were my expectations and what I wanted the outcome to be, my worries and fears, and then he explained what was realistically possible and what could be achieved. his expertise is just outstanding. Any doubt I had thought the entire process, he was always there, even when abroad. This means the world to someone who’s worried, scared or just stressed out. He was always very honest, approachable and caring. The aftercare was as outstanding as the pre operative care, and the results? I can’t be happier then I am now :) A shout out to his entire team at euromed clinic as well, the nurses and especially his co-ordinator Yasmina, she is just outstanding! a level of care and professionalism that one doesn’t encounter very often, till the late hours on the night before my surgery, she was sending messages, reassuring me was always available throughout the entire process. If you’re in that phase, were you still are not sure who to entrust your surgery too, After you meet with Dr.Faisal Salim, you should look nor worry anymore, he is the one. I can’t recommend him enough after what he’s done for me. Thank you Dr.Faisal!

My whole experience with Dr. Faisal and his team was outstanding. I had several consultations with different doctors before finally meeting Dr. Faisal. His personality and expertise totally convinced me to go ahead with my operation without any doubts. He took extensive time during the several consultations, where we discussed the reasonable expectations. Dr. Faisal managed to create the exact result I have wished for where other doctors told me differently and I couldn’t be happier. He has definitely exceeded my expectations. My healing process was extremely smooth without any complications and pain. Dr. Faisal is very compassionate, emphatic and caring. He takes a lot of time for each appointment and the aftercare was superb. I could not recommend him enough. The whole team at Euromed is extremely friendly. Yasmina has been an amazing patient coordinator and I thank her for her kindness and flexibility.

My whole experience with Dr. Faisal was more than outstanding! It took me a while to decide on a specific surgeon, and I had already seen many before I decided to proceed with Dr. Faisal. From the first appointment, his honesty, care and straightforwardness immediately put me at ease. I had felt I will be in good hands, and that was a prerequisite for me to go for it. We had several appointments before the surgery, and he explained everything so clearly with realistic expectations. On the day of the surgery, he was quite caring, calm and compassionate. Post the surgery, took all the time to look after me, and answer all my questions. He patiently endured my fussiness, impatience and always assured me. I was quite happy with the results, and his availability for the post-surgery follow-ups. I had a big surgery, which Dr. Faisal handles perfectly so I can’t recommend him enough. To add, Dr. Faisal has the most amazing coordinator (Yasmine), always been there, answered all my questions with care and support

I met Dr Faisal last year whilst on a quest to find a surgeon to complete a full tummy tuck, gynecomastia and lypo. I instantly felt at ease when meeting Dr Faisal and after a discussion he pointed out what was and wasn’t needed, he suggested a plan and showed me what I could expect by his previous surgeries. I had made my mind up and decided to choose him to move forward with. We met a few more times and he was very clear what I should do prior to surgery and made himself available with his mobile number for any further questions I might have. the morning of the surgery he seemed very focused and tried to help me relax and put me at ease, I felt good and trusted him fully. i was happy with the after care and was surprised with the speed of the healing process, he was regularly checking in and told me how it all went, over the next few weeks we met for appointments and dressing changes. It’s been 5 months now and I’m so happy with the results, I feel way more confident and I feel the results are even better than I expected. Great surgeon, would definitely recommend him!
