Hi Dr. Lam,
First of all thank you very much for taking the time to create this forum!! I had Botox to my jawline on the 4th of September this year. So far I am quite pleased with the result. As you can see in attached photos, they are quite dramatic. One thing though that leaves me wondering, is that I have started now to noticed more and more that a hollow area is building up underneath my cheekbone. I wouldn't mind that so much if it looked like it does with other people but in my case it's a bit strange because I have this hollow area building up under my cheekbone so is that causing my actual cheeks to look bigger?
Because when you look at the after pictures you can see at the side of my face not only the cheekbones sticking out but also the actual cheeks underneath (that is the part I really dislike). I wonder what makes my cheeks stick out so much? I like the fact that my cheekbones are pronounced now but I don't like the lower part. Is that fat? I'd be surprised because I am really not overweight.
I thought a reason might be that my doctor injected the Botox quite high because, as you can see in my before picture, that is where the bulk of my masseter muscle was. You can literally see how the angle has moved down in the after pictures.
Anyway, I have a followup treatment in early January so I am wondering, do you think it would help this time to inject the Botox in the lower part of the muscle instead of in the higher part like last time? Would that help to make my lower face look more even?
Thank you so much in advance,
