By Tomahawk , January 3, in Steroid and Testosterone information. I just spent the better part of an hour trying to figure out if steroids, GH, or anything other drug can actually result in any changes in facial bone structure, but I got no solid answers.
Other people have mentioned tooth and bite alignment issues which can indicate a change in jaw structure. Scientifically it doesn't seem to make any sense, even with growth hormone: I'm not a doctor, but as I understand bones grow via growth plates which close at some point around the age of So I can see how maybe in a year old it can promote a more masculine facial structure, but for someone in their late 30's or beyond that shouldn't be possible.
Another question is female gear users who end up with wide, square jaws. How is that possible? Is it just a matter of low body fat coupled with more jaw muscles? Ok, so I'm baasically failing immediately because this isn't a scientific explanation but, I'd say anecdotely jaw growth is possible after this growth plate closure age.
And its down to GH. He's got acromegaly so he produces too much GH and I reckon his jaw looks a touch big, maybe its the angle but I'm still saying a little big:. Steroids will make your jaw muscles grow for sure, even though this isn't bone growing it can totally alter the shape of someone's face.
Genetics would dictate how much which I'm sure why it is more prominent in some females than others. There's a woman who instructs crossfit and competes in power lifting at my old gym, she clearly started taking gear as she got very muscular within the space of a year and her jaw muscles grew like mad, she was very pretty before and the jaw totally changes her look for the worse. U slso get a fuller effect on gear which effects all muscles not just the ones you train.
Victor martinez is a great example. You need pictures of him when he was to see what his jaw was like though. Could have happened before growth plates sealed. Yeah that's the problem with the acromegaly argument, they could have grown before they were 25 or whenever you normally stop growing. Even those guys eventually stop growing, right? I get that the hands, joints, etc. Certainly acromegaly causes jaw growth prognathism , increase in hand size and supra-orbital protrusion.
This all occurs after epiphyseal plates close. Now, whether this can be achieved by supplementing GH I don't know, and I suspect if it can, you're also going to have all the negative effects of GH excess as well, so it's not worth it.
GH directly and through IGF-I stimulates osteoblast proliferation and activity, promoting bone formation. It also stimulates osteoclast differentiation and activity, promoting bone resorption. The result is an increase in the overall rate of bone remodeling, with a net effect of bone accumulation. In seriousness though, you don't understand the difference between Gigantism and Acromegaly if you think the above. Most commonly effects middle-aged men.
If you look at this thread on here and see posts by GBLiz towards the bottom, her face reverted back when she quit steroids. A door lady I worked with still had huge jaw and hands like a shovel, but like I said, it doesn't apply to all females. I'm pretty sure testosterone makes physical changes, adams apple, virilisation, hair growth, so probably some effects on jawline.
This is the difference between Gigantism and Acromegaly Tomahawk. But looking at guys with Acromegaly and pro-BB's who we all know are on unreal amounts of GH, I'd say a significant increase in GH alone can't produce the level of bone growth that Acromegaly does. Probably I just was giving another perspective lol! I'd not risk it myself to be fair. Depends on dose, length of time, compounds used. Its only some of the physique competitors that are borderline, and they use quite a bit, incl injectables.
I'm not an expert and can't be arsed to look it up but I'd guess its not that it kicks in at say 30, its just after child-levels of GH being produced when they should've stopped 10 - 20 years previous, it starts getting really noticeable Victor martinez is a great example.. More examples misle thickness in face neck and traps. Lol I would some ppl I know look real skinny in the face and neck once off but big everywhere else..

Posted January 4, He'd have been laying down. No way he could've got that chin off the ground. Wait so Acromegaly kicks in when you're middle aged, and not around puberty? Just look at females abusing AAS. GH may even not be involved in all cases.
