Are you feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your face cheek? Perhaps you are thinking your cheeks are just too round or chubby.
A common misconception is that only over weight people have chubby cheeks or a double chin.
But this is not true. The fact is, even when your body is in pretty good shape or if you are slim, you still can have a chubby face. And this makes it all the more exasperating for people who have a svelte body but a fat face.
Here are some factors that might cause your face to look chubby or fat.
1. Over Weight
If you have gained weight recently, or if you are obese, the extra pounds can show up on your face and neck as well. Face fat makes your face looks fuller.
2. Genetic Predisposition
Yes. The genes that your mom and dad pass on to you can cause you to have round cheeks. In other words, you have a genetic predisposition to carry fat in your face.
On the other hand, some individuals might be prone to accumulate body fat in the abdomen(love handles) or outer thighs(saddlebags). So, our body is built differently. And the way your body utilizes body fat also works a little differently.
3. Water Retention
Puffy face cheek problem can be a result of water retention. Your face may look bloated when your body retains excess fluid in the system. Water retention can be caused by any one of these factors: the food or beverages you take, hormonal imbalances, health condition, medications or irregular sleeping habits.
If it is a medical condition, you need to consult your doctor. Trying to get rid of your puffy cheeks by taking up a weight loss or exercise program might compromise your health in such circumstances.
4. Baby Fat
Young people and teenagers can have round cherubic faces because of baby fat. This chubbiness naturally slim with time. As such, cosmetic surgeon do not encourage removing too much face fat before patients reach their mid 20s.
Face cheek fat is also called ‘Buccal Fat’. Have you heard of Buccal fat removal? This is a cheek reduction surgery to reduce the size of the cheeks. By removing the fat pads, you can slim the cheeks and contour the face.
Face exercises can also help you get rid of your chubby cheeks. There are specific face exercises that target face cheek fat or a double chin. Combine the facial exercises with a sensible nutritional plan, and you can get more defined cheeks and a leaner face for your efforts.
