What is face slimming?

If you have round, “chipmunk cheeks” that persist despite weight loss, face slimming may be an option for you. Face slimming refers to a custom blend of procedures that can correct an overly full or round facial appearance. The available treatments include:

Buccal fat removal

This procedure is designed to remove the buccal fat pads located in the lower portion of the face. For the right patient, this surgery can reveal slimmer cheeks and a more defined face.

Jawline contouring

An oversized jaw can exacerbate the appearance of a wide or full face. When this occurs, carefully placed BOTOX injections in the area can contour the jawline and restore balance.


If you struggle with a double chin or fatty deposits on the neck, gentle and precise liposuction can remove the excess volume.


Your healing process will vary depending on the treatment selected. However, most of our face slimming procedures are associated with relatively quick recovery periods, ranging from 24 hours to one week.
