Many people complain about having a “fat” face or “chipmunk cheeks” that never seem to go away with adulthood. Fatty cheeks are often caused by genetics, and no amount of dieting or exercise will slim down the cheek area. If you have round cheeks and want a slimmer, more defined contour to your face, cheek reduction surgery is an option. Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastics in Manhattan can help you achieve the look you desire with a cheek reduction procedure.

Most people have chubby cheeks as a child that diminish when they become adults. The cheek fat pads create the rounded, cherub appearance that is adorable on children, but may not be appreciated by men and women beyond their teens. A cheek reduction can remove excess fat in the cheek area, creating a slimmer, more angled face shape. Dr. Gary Linkov, MD plastic surgeon can discuss your desired expectations and recommend the best procedure to obtain the results you desire.

Cheek Contouring Options

In most cases, cheek reduction can be achieved with facial liposculpting. Similar to body liposuction, small amounts of fat are removed to contour the shape of the face. In some cases, surgical removal of the buccal fat pads can be performed to create the desired effect. Dr. Linkov’s experience, skill and use of advanced techniques will provide facial balance and correct shaping. You are ensured excellent results from your procedure when you trust the best experts at City Facial Plastics.

He may also suggest other procedures to create the facial shape you desire. Chin implants or lip augmentation can help balance facial features, depending on the person and the look they are trying to achieve.

If you have chubby cheeks that you want reduced, contact our team at City Facial Plastics on the Upper East Side of NYC. We will schedule your consultation to meet with Dr. Linkov to determine the best procedure to get the facial shape and look you desire.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.

Wow is all I can say! Fantastic doctor that gives you an extremely pleasant, professional, and realistic experience. Would highly recommend and give 6 stars if I could.
