Cheek liposuction permanently removes fat cells from your face. It can also shape, or contour, the area. As you heal, your skin will mold around this newly shaped area. This can slim the face, leading to a more defined profile or jawline.

Cheek liposuction is performed in a similar way to liposuction on other parts of the body. It’s sometimes performed along with other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift.
