Facial Procedure New York, NY

Do you feel as though your jawline is asymmetrical or that your face is overly square? Perhaps you grind or clench your teeth (Bruxism), chew gum excessively or crunch ice, and this has attributed to a large masseter muscle. In either case, Masseter (Jaw) Reduction is a facial reshaping procedure designed to shrink the masseter muscle and ultimately reduce its appearance. Dr. Joshua D. Rosenberg M.D. of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in New York City and Upper East Side provides surgical and non-surgical Masseter Reduction to slim and feminize the lower face.

From the cheekbone to the lower jaw on each side of the face, the masseter muscle is positioned along the rear part of the cheek. It connects the lower jawbone (mandible) to the cheekbone, and is essential to opening and closing the jaw while eating. For some, an enlarged masseter muscle results in a lack of self-esteem. This is particularly true for women, as they generally desire a softer, more graceful appearance. Thus, as a facial feminization and reshaping procedure, masseter reduction is the perfect treatment to achieve confidence, beauty and facial harmony.

The Masseter Muscle: Surgical And Non-Surgical Reduction

Options to reduce the size of the masseter muscle include surgical and non-surgical methods. A surgical reduction involves creating an incision on the inside of the mouth, between the gum tissues and the cheek. This allows a surgeon to access the masseter and jawbone. In effect, the muscle and jawbone are trimmed or shaped to restructure the lower face.

Non-surgical reduction of the masseter muscle utilizes popular injectable agents such as BOTOX Cosmetic or Dysport. This method is highly effective for patients that have an enlarged masseter muscle due to Bruxism, as it reduces the tendency of the individual to grind or clench teeth. Typically, a series of injections are provided until desired results are achieved.

An expert in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Rosenberg produces impeccable results that are personalized to each patient. This requires a deep knowledge of facial anatomy as it relates to a person’s unique beauty and expressions. Furthermore, it necessitates an understanding of the latest technologies and techniques that will produce favorable, elegant results.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
