Some people have a prominent square jaw which is not due to the bone structure but results from strong and bulky jaw muscles. These are masseter muscles used in talking and chewing. The muscles get bulky and hypertrophy if someone chews very hard, chews gum a lot, grinds their teeth when anxious or in their sleep. This changes the shape of the face and makes it quite square and masculine. These muscles can be shrunk using botulinum or Botox injections. Two to three injections are placed carefully on each side which weakens the muscle so that it debulks and becomes smaller resulting in a V shaped face. It takes around 4 weeks for the result to appear.
