Wide Jaw

Introduction To Wide Jaw Treatments

A wide jawline in women is typically caused by genetics and bone structure. It is not necessarily considered unattractive, as beauty standards vary across cultures and personal preferences. However, in some societies, a narrower jawline is considered more feminine and desirable.


Other Factors To Consider

The masseter muscle is a powerful muscle that is responsible for the movement of the jaw during chewing, speaking, and other activities involving the mouth. It is located in the cheek area, and it extends from the cheekbone to the lower jawbone.


When the masseter muscle contracts, it pulls the lower jawbone upwards, causing the mouth to open and close. If the muscle is well-developed, it can cause the jaw to appear wider, giving the face a more angular, masculine appearance.


In some cases, a wide jaw may be caused by an enlarged or hypertrophied masseter muscle. This can occur due to a variety of factors, such as clenching or grinding the teeth (bruxism), chewing gum excessively, or regularly eating tough or chewy foods. In these cases, the muscle can become overdeveloped and may cause the jaw to appear wider than normal.


There are various treatments available for hypertrophy of the masseter muscle, such as botulinum toxin injections. It is important to consult with our qualified medical professional to determine the best course of treatment for your individual case.
