Can Cool Sculpting Be Used to Remove Cheek Fat?
Doctor Answers 23
Coolsculpting should not be used on the face.
Coolsculpting is not at this time designed for facial fat. You are probably referring to a procedure called "buccal fat excision." if you have much fat in the lower cheek region. If in fact you have jowling (sagging of the facial fat and skin) then you would benefit from a facelifting type of procedure.
A photos would be most helpful if you want further discussion.
However, Coolsculpting is not used in this region at this time.

No. CoolSculpting is not ideal for cheek fat. CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is FDA-cleared and safe to use in the neck area. The best candidates have noticeable bulges under the neck area – the double chin. It is a good alternative to liposuction surgery as this area will not be eliminated with diet and exercise.
