Cheeks have different components: the upper cheeks and the lower cheeks.
The lower cheeks could usually be slim down with a plastic surgery procedure called buccal fat removal.
The upper cheeks are composed of both soft tissue and bone. Therefore, depending of the main cause of fullness it depends the procedure that could be done.
Patients interested in slimming down their cheeks should make a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon specialized in plastic surgery procedures of the face to determine what procedure(s) would benefit them
