Round cheeks are cute when you are a child, but not everyone wants cherub cheeks as an adult. If you have chubby cheeks, it is likely due to genetics, and not something you can change with weight loss. Removing fat from the cheeks can create a more angular facial shape that can enhance your facial appearance. If you want to explore cheek reduction surgery in NYC, come see our team at Vantage Plastic Surgery at our clinics on the UES in Manhattan and in Brooklyn.

The cheeks contain the buccal fat pads that give the midface its round appearance. Many people lose this facial fat as they become adults, creating a more angular, svelte face shape. Some people maintain chunky cheeks that keep them looking youthful, but this may not create the look desired. The solution is buccal fat removal to slim the midface and create a more angular facial shape.

Cheek Slimming or Liposculpture

Liposculpture or buccal fat pad removal can provide a cheek reduction. Both options are forms of plastic surgery and require incisions into the cheek to access the buccal fat. Cheek reduction surgery can be performed through small incisions inside the mouth to access the cheeks without leaving a scar on the skin. The amount of fat removed depends on the desired slimming effect. The more fat removed, the more angular the face will be, revealing the hollows of the cheek and emphasizing the cheekbones.

Both men and women can benefit from cheek reduction surgery. Reducing the cheeks can make some faces appear more masculine, which may be what is desired. A more angular face can also be considered a sexier look for an adult than the rounder cheeks equated with childhood.
