Non-invasive techniques to slin the cheeks and chin
I would not recommend this procedure. I wuld contact a board-certified plastic surgeon that has experience in minimally invasive techniques to improve the shape of the lower face and chin.
Good luck in your endeavors

Fat reduction without surgery Ultrashape Nova shape
There are many modalities evolving for non invasive procedures to reduce fat contour. Zeltiq CoolSculpting kills fat cells by freezing. The cells do not explode and suddenly release all their fatty content throughout the body. Ultrashape, not FDA approved in the United States at this time, and other devices such as Nova Shape seem to use ultrasonic energy to pass through the skin and rupture the fat cells releasing the triglycerides. There are questions as to what happens to the actual fat cells. Do they die or do they live and fill up again with more fat? Studies have been ongoing investigating the safety effects of having triglycerides liberated and circulated through the body.
