Chubby Cheeks

The Basics

Reduction of the jaw line muscle can be performed using muscle relaxant injections to additionally slim the face.

Top Chubby Cheeks Questions

What are Chubby Cheeks?

Chubby Cheeks is a physical trait that can make a person with a slim physique seem bigger than they really are. It can give some the appearance of having overly large cheekbones, a double chin, and can even mimic the appearance of facial bloating. This frustrating characteristic can prevent people from smiling out of embarrassment, and can significantly affect their self confidence. Chubby cheeks are a stubborn area to slim. Even with facial exercises, a healthy diet (eating healthier and fewer calories), facial massages and the reduction of water retention, it can still be difficult lose face fat. Cheeks (as an area) can be resistant to diet and exercise; therefore, surgical intervention may need to be taken. This can be done via Vaser Liposuction to remove the excessive fat cells in this area.

What causes Chubby Cheeks?

Chubby Cheeks can be caused by genetics or ageing. An excessive number of fat cells in the cheek area can produce the appearance of a fuller, round face. Having excess body fat, and being physically large, can also exaggerate the appearance of chubby cheeks.

The Procedure. What does it involve?

Facial Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasound technology to melt fat cells in the cheeks before they are suctioned and permanently removed. It melts fat and heats up collagen to assist in tightening the skin. Vaser Liposuction is performed under twilight sedation. Recovery is relatively quick.
