Can I Use Botox For Temporal Reduction?

Q: Dr. Eppley,  I would like to know if Botox could also be an option for temporal reduction, since it’s a muscle and I have already received injections to reduce the muscles in my jaw and it works very well. If that’s the case, I would start with Botox, which is less invasive, by getting injections from my surgeon near my home. thank you for your time.

A: Botox is a good place to start. Its effects are not the same as surgery, which produces a more dramatic head narrowing, but usually you will see some modest head width reduction.
