The medical term for chubby cheeks and double chin is excess Buccal Fat AND Submental Fat. Now all of us have it, however, in some cases, it is more visible due to a combination of reasons.

CAUSES OF CHUBBY CHEEKS

How can you lose and reduce buccal fat?

If you desire to reduce the excess fat and tighten your skin, there are some options available.

There is no one size fits all technique. Options are on a case by case basis.

Definitive treamtment is surgical removal for moderate to severe cases.

For mild to moderate cases and a desire for non surgical intervention, combination treatment helps. This is my preferred approach. I call it the TIE approach.

  • T: Threadlift and Microtoxin to provide skin firming and support
  • I:  Injection – with lipo-dissolve solutions – Deoxycholic acid, Kybella
  • E: Energy based devices – Skin tightening with Energy based devices RF, HIFU, And fat reduction via fat freezing

Here we can see where the buccal fat is located. Notice it is right in front of the jawline, hence contributing to a square jaw in Asians. Depending on the severity, the above options of non surgical vs surgical are available and will give a certain degree of efficacy.

SUBMENTAL FAT aka DOUBLE CHIN and Turkey Neck 

Next lets look at the chin and neckline. Notice a bulge under your chin? That is due to skin laxity and soft tissue accumulation.
