Wide Jaw

Possessing a wide jaw can refer to the look of a jawline that is dominant in appearance. Also known as a square jaw, this condition can be associated with masculine features that some people will feel looks disproportionate with the rest of the face. Possessing a wide jaw can refer to the look of a jawline that is dominant in appearance. Also known as a square jaw, this condition can be associated with masculine features that some people will feel looks disproportionate with the rest of the face.

A wide jaw can be due to one of two factors: the individual’s bone structure, or enlarged masseter muscles. However, in some cases it is a combination of both. A person’s genes will often be what determines their overall appearance, including their body shape, the way their features are formed and the unique colouring of their hair, skin and eyes.

About this condition

The jawbone is known medically as the mandible and in some cases where genetics are not the cause, this can change its shape from injury, trauma or certain medical conditions.

The masseter muscle is located at each side of the jaw and controls the opening and closing of the mouth. Genetics can also influence the size of this muscle, but it can become enlarged when it is overused. Excessive chewing (such as with those who frequently chew gum) can encourage the muscle to grow, as can some habitual conditions such as bruxism (teeth grinding) and jaw clenching.

Treatments that work to re-contour or reshape the jawline can be used to create a more streamlined look to the lower part of the face. At Nassif MedSpa dermal fillers can be administered to various points along the jawline or chin, bringing a more balanced and harmonious look.

If the masseter muscle has become larger, applying toxin directly into the muscle can help to relax the muscle and stop it from over contracting, which also effectively helps to stop the involuntary actions of grinding your teeth and clenching the jaw.

Wow where do I begin! I had my reservations about this place because I had limited knowledge but as soon as I pulled up into the private car park and was greeted by a lovely professional lady and saw the interior, all my reservations were quickly put to bed. I had my initial consultation with Amanda - she nothing short of amazing. Knowledge, honest, patient centric, very well educated and absolutely lovely. She has a genuine passion for aesthetic and cosmetic procedures and is ahead of the curve in terms of innovations in skincare and aesthetics. I can’t wait to go back next week to start my treatments. It was all in all an amazing experience. I even called my friends and husband afterwards to tell them about it. For me, the little details matter. I was offered a drink and when I asked for water the receptionist asked if I’d like ice and a slice of lemon. It came on a tray with little dried flowers and a napkin. Honestly can’t recommend highly enough. Professional and knowledgeable yet personable and friendly. I think this is going to be my go-to place for treatments and advice moving forward.

As always Amanda and her team were professional and friendly. Lovely greeting by everyone especially. Love the salon as it’s so clean, fresh and bright! The team really put you at ease (thanks Amanda, Ray and Faye) and looking forward to coming back for future treatments. I had the BBL Hero Laser treatment which is a state of the art laser facial treatment and the results so far have been amazing! Highly recommended!

I recently attended NassifMD Medical Spa for a treatment I had been researching for a while. I was extremely nervous before I attended, however I was greeted with such warmth and I immediately felt at ease. During the consultation Dr Ryan and Amanda were so patient with me and listened to all of my concerns. They didn’t pressurise me into having any treatment, instead they listened and advised. The procedure was exactly what I wanted and I couldn’t be happier with the results. It has really improved my confidence, my only regret is that I didn’t have it sooner! I can’t wait to go back for my review and to also have more treatments. I can’t recommend them enough!

I went in for a consultation and it was a wonderful experience. The Dr and an associate spent a good amount of time explaining different procedures to me and I didn't feel rushed at all when I had questions. I plan on getting some of the treatments in the near future and am looking forward to it.

As soon as I entered I was greeted by the most loveliest women who made me feel extremely welcome and comfortable. The place itself was really beautiful and clean. When I went in for my treatment, Dr Ryan and Amanda really took their time to understand what was bothering me. What I really admired was the fact that they were really professional in the way that they gave me realistic expectations and didn’t pressure me into any treatment without making sure I was certain it’s what I wanted. They thoroughly went through the treatments and explained everything in detail so I had a better understanding what was achievable. As I felt in good hands I went along with one of treatments suggested and I’m extremely satisfied with the results provided! I travelled a bit away but I couldn’t be happier that I did knowing I was in safe hands. Thank you to the team , I will definitely be back!

From the minute I walked in I was greeted by the sweetest women. They made sure I was comfortable and had a drink while I filled out paper work. I then went back to my session, I had a clarifying facial. It was such a relaxing experience and my skin looked and felt amazing once finished! I have very sensitive skin so I was a bit nervous to see how it would do with different products during the service, but I loved them so much I ended up buying the line! I look forward to my next visits at the med spa and to get my skin back on track. Thank you to everyone I met for making me feel very comfortable and welcomed, and for being so thorough in explaining all of the products and different ways of taking care of my skin!
