Spot Muscle Reduction

Yes, I want to get rid of a little bit of muscle around and particularly under my lower lip, which I believe is detracting from my ethereal beauty (feminine statement, much?).

I think I enlarged the muscle (orbicularis oris) from either: playing the french horn, or from playing the flute. At that time I had been running track and playing soccer, so I was probably eating enough food to have protein left over (I’m not sure, but the overall physical activity levels probably added to the ease of facial hypertrophy).

I know I should focus on not exercising these muscles in order to see muscle loss, but they are important for everyday communication.

As implied by the title, I don’t want to lose much (if any) muscle besides the orbicularis oris, because I’d like to compete next year in 2 sports (basketball and track).

boy tough one id seek advice of facial specialist thats a whole diff ballpark of musculature

Why not just make the rest of your face bigger?

botox would cause the muscle to keep from being innervated and it would then atrophy. If it bothers you that much go see a doctor for a botox shot.

Are you male or female? How old are you?

If you are a young man and stay with lifting/sports, your jawline might grow and even things out.

If you are a young man and you use the phrase “ethereal beauty” to refer to yourself, kill yourself now and save us the trouble of finding you. If you’re a woman, never mind.

That made me laugh.

But to the OP, no idea, man. Stop blowing things???

If you’d known I was a male, perhaps you would have realized I was joking when I said that, but I said it so as to inform helpful posters that my face has delicate features.

I am going to be lifting, and my jaw will grow larger, but that’s probably not going to effect the proportions that I referred to in my OP (actually, I didn’t, but you can infer).

I’d rather keep away from Botox but maybe when I’m a super-model it’ll be of more importance (joking…)

Every time I think I’ve heard everything…
