Can I Get Botox To The Masseter Muscles After A Jawline Implant?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I want to get masseter muscle botox (Xeomin) as well as botox in the Crows feet area around the eyes from my dermatologist, would this be an issue with the implants I have?  What would happen if the doctor accidentally injected into the cheek, jaw, temporal, or chin implant?  Could it leak or get infected?

A:That should not be a problem. The key is let the dermatologist know there are implants there. In the eye area injections are done right under the skin which is well away from the implant. In the jaw angle area they have to go deeper to get into the muscle, they just don’t want to go down into the implant. But having the implant there actually makes the muscle easier to inject since it is pushed out.

Your implants can not leak since they are solid, not gel-filled like breast implants.
