Chubby cheeks are cute on children and chipmunks, but not everyone likes having “pinchable” cheeks. Genetics and other factors can create rounder cheeks than you desire, hiding the angular structure of the adult face. If you want to slim your face and cheeks, facial plastic surgery may be the solution. World-renowned facial surgeon Dr. Lesley Rabach and our team at LM Medical NYC in Manhattan offer cheek reduction surgery to create the flattering face contours you desire.

The right balance of fat in the cheek region is important for facial balance and appearance. Too little fat in the cheeks can create a flat, tired appearance, but too much can make the face overly round and chubby. While most people lose the fuller cheeks of childhood when they reach adulthood, some men and women retain rounder cheeks. For men, cheek reduction surgery can reveal a more masculine, chiseled appearance. For women, reducing chubby cheeks can transform the midface from a girlish look into sexier, svelte contours.

Cheek Buccal Fat Removal

The buccal fat pads in the cheeks create the rounder appearance over the cheekbones. If these fat pads are larger, they hide the bone structure of the midface. Cheek reduction surgery can include facial liposuction to reduce fat in the cheeks or the actual removal of the buccal fat pads. Incisions can be placed inside the mouth to hide any scars from removing fat from the cheeks. Once the extra fat is removed, the face can appear slimmer, and there can be improved definition in the midface and cheekbone area.

If you are unhappy with the fullness of your cheeks and want to explore cheek reduction surgery, contact us at LM Medical NYC. We can schedule a consultation with expert facial surgeon Dr. Lesley to discuss the options for reducing your cheek size and creating the new defined look you desire.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
