Stubborn fat that causes the appearance of chubby cheeks can be hard to remove with diet and exercise efforts alone. At Cosmos Clinic, you can achieve a slimmer face shape by removing excess fat from cheeks and softening the jaw line with cheek liposuction. As a chubby cheeks removal procedure, Cosmos Clinic uses the state-of-the-art Vaser liposuction, creating natural-looking and faster-healing results than traditional liposuction methods.
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.
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, facial massages and the reduction of water retention, it can still be difficult lose face fat. Cheeks 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.

Gently melts the fat for a permanent change in facial shape
To perform the cheek liposuction with Vaser, your doctor will create a personalised treatment plan, designed to suit your individual needs and aesthetic goals.
Since the cheek liposuction procedure is considered as less invasive than traditional methods of liposuction and surgical facelifts, patients will only require local anaesthetic and twilight sedation for the procedure to be performed.
After small incisions are made, facial Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound technology to melt fat cells in the cheeks before they are suctioned and permanently removed. The innovative method melts fat and heats up collagen to assist in tightening the skin. Vaser cheek liposuction will take about 30 minutes to complete is associated with a quick recovery.
How much does cheek liposuction cost?
Chubby cheeks removal treatment prices vary depending on your overall situation and expectations. As a guide:
Vaser liposuction price starts from $4,400
Initial consultation is between $120 – $330
Depending on the shape of your face, facial muscles know as the masseters may be the problem. Like any other muscle in the body, when overused, it can grow bigger. Treating the masseters can be referred to as Jaw Line Contouring. This treatment just uses Muscle Relaxing Injections to achieve slimmed cheeks and a chiselled jawline. It is an effective treatment in relaxing the muscle that causes a larger face. This non-invasive treatment can reduce the muscle’s size to create a more slimmed appearance.

You may be able to treat other areas of the body at the same time as your cheek liposuction procedure. This will increase your total procedure costs, however, it can reduce overall costs when compared to undergoing multiple separate procedures.

Potential risks and complications of cheek liposuction
Vaser liposuction is associated with less risks and complications than traditional methods of liposuction, however, all surgeries will carry some risks. Closely monitor your health after your procedure and notify your doctor of any concerning symptoms as soon as you can. Make sure that you follow your preparation and recovery instructions as they are put in place to reduce the chance of these complications occurring. Potential side effects can include:
Skin irregularities in the treated area
Your doctor will inform you of the risks and complications of the procedure in more detail during your consultation.
What is Vaser?
The high-tech Vaser technology is an advanced method of liposuction, designed to melt stubborn fat cells before the removal using ultrasound energy. This allows for a gentler removal, preventing surrounding tissue in the treated area from becoming damaged during the vacuum process.
What happens to the skin after chubby cheeks removal?
The heat from the ultrasound energy will stimulate collagen fibres, causing the skin to retract and tighten. This contributes towards the toned and sculpted results of the procedure.
What makes a suitable candidate for chubby cheeks liposuction?
Suitable candidates for cheek liposuction can include those who:
Are in good physical and mental health
Have stubborn fat in the cheeks/lower facial areas
Hold realistic expectations for the procedure
Have good skin elasticity
Are non-smokers or are willing to quit before surgery
Are prepared to follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly to avoid significant weight gain after the procedure
How soon can I see results?
Results can be instant but swelling will need to subside to allow for better visibility of the results. Therefore, results can take several weeks to become noticeable, with full results developing at about six months after your procedure.
Will cheek liposuction results be permanent?
Cheek liposuction permanently removes the targeted fat cells. However, to ensure the permanency of your results, you will need to maintain your post-lipo weight, as significant weight gain after your procedure can cause the remaining fat cells in the treated area to expand. The tightened skin can be long-lasting, but the natural aging process will still continue to take place and can cause the re-appearance of sagging skin in the future.
Is cheek liposuction the same as liposuction on other areas of the body?
Yes, cheek liposuction and body liposuction use the same Vaser method. One difference is that the chubby cheek removal procedure with liposuction will typically require less fat to be removed than liposuction procedures that are performed on the body.
How can I prepare for my procedure?
You will be provided with personalised instructions on how to prepare for your cheek liposuction procedure. Generally, smokers will need to quit, and patients will need to avoid certain medications and supplements that can affect the healing process during recovery. To get organised before your procedure, you can prepare some healthy meals, purchase comfortable clothing, fill prescriptions, and ask somebody to pick you up from the hospital after your procedure.
Does Vaser cheek liposuction hurt?
Patients will be under twilight sedation and local anaesthesia. Therefore, there should be no pain during the procedure.
