What causes a wide face and square jawline?
Everyone has a masseter muscle located toward the rear of their jaw. It is responsible for moving the jaw and allowing us to chew. These strong muscles can become overdeveloped from clenching, teeth grinding and even frequent gum chewing, but in many cases, a strong jawline is genetic. Some people suffer from hypertrophy of this muscle, which means the muscle is a bit larger than normal. This result in a square jawline. This is often seen as an attractive characteristic in men, but it can sometimes make women look masculine. That’s where jawline contouring comes in. This procedure reduces the mass in the rear of the jaw, minimizing the square look in favour of a more defined and feminine contour.
