Best choice for reducing my cheeks? (Photo)

I have very full, chubby cheeks that I would like to reduce! I know buccal fat reduction is an option, but i've also heard this can have negative effects as you age. Personally, when I smile and I pull my cheeks back towards my ears, this is the look that I like. It gets rid of my smile lines and reduces the amount of "pinchable" skin.

Options for your cheeks

It would be helpful to see a photograph when you're not smiling, together with some three-quarter views.From the current, smiling photograph, I would not recommend any surgery. You look great.
