For most people, weight gain is usually most visible on the face before they notice it anywhere else. Unfortunately for most of us, when we try to lose the excess weight, we just can’t seem to get rid of the chubby cheeks no matter how hard we try.
Excessive fat in the lower cheeks (buccal fat) can make you look bloated and fatter than you really are. While weight gain contributes to the problem, the cause is mainly genetic. There is no effective diet or exercise that can specifically target facial fat, leaving only medical treatments to be the only effective method for getting rid of chubby cheeks.
Surgical removal of fat is one way to solve the problem. However, for people who so not wish to undergo a surgical procedure, non-invasive options are available. These include Ulthera Facial Slimming, which uses ultrasound to break down fats, and Tripollar V-Lift, which uses radiofrequency waves to tighten skin and reduce fat cells.
Know Your Problems
- Chubby cheek is the result of excessive deposition of fats in the lower cheek area.
- While good diet and exercise can help to a certain extent, there is very little you can do to reduce the appearance of having fat cheeks without any medical intervention.
- Medical aesthetic treatments which tighten skin and melt fats will improve the problem.
