Masseter muscle hypertrophy (MMH) is a benign, unilateral or bilateral, painless enlargement. Treatment protocols include surgical excision or a non-invasive option, using botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A). There is no study in the literature that measures this dimensional change in the masseter muscle (MM). The aim of this case report is to present changes in volume and surface area in MM with three-dimensional closerange stereophotogrammetry (3DCS). For treatment 30 units of BTX-A was injected into the three points hypertrophic muscle and patient records were taken to compare with 3DCS with a non-metric Canon EOS 550 D camera before and after injection. The changes in the surface area and volume of this muscle were mapped and the objective data were obtained. This technique is useful for predicting the results of BTX-A application, and can be a useful tool for better physicianpatient communication.
