Masseters hypertrophy is present in 10% population. In these patients most common face change is wide mandible. Additionally: pain of the lower face, limited mandible movement, and destruction of tooth chewing surfaces can be observed. Treatment of hypertrophic masseters can be performed with botulinum toxin. By injecting Botulinum toxin the decrease in masseters volume can be obtain. Additionally pain relief, and narrowing of mandible can be gained. Procedure has to be reenact after few months. After second procedure masseters are smaller, and mandible is more narrow.
