I am sure all of us have heard the chubby cheeks poem in the kindergarten. Chubby cheeks and dimpled chin has been an image that is fixed in our heads since the very childhood. But then, we grow up to see all the celebrities and influencers with chiselled jawline and cheekbone.

The need and desire drifts and we dream of having a face that does not require tones of contouring powder and cream to give the face that edgy look. While some people still love the chubby face, there are a lot of women out there who are trying to get rid of it.

There are multiple ways of doing so. It could be surgically done if required immediately or done naturally by exercises and massages. You can pick whichever benefits you and work towards perfecting that. However, before selecting the method through which you would achieve the Jolie jawbones, it is important to understand the cause for it.

Causes Of Chubby Cheeks



Chubby cheeks can be caused due to multiple reasons.

  • Obesity is the first and the foremost reason for chubby cheeks as it adds fat not just to the cheeks but to the entire body.
  • Your genes can also be responsible for a face that is fat and chubby. A lot of people have a slim body but chubby face because of their genes.
  • Eating unhealthy food also contributes to a chubby face.
  • Lack of vitamin A and C also causes chubby cheeks.
  • The body sometimes tends to retain water making the body bloat.
  • Lack of thyroid hormone may also make your cheeks look chubby.
  • Certain allergies from medication can also cause the bloated swollen face.
  • Mumps and parotid gland swelling also cause a swollen face.

This can lead to any of the side effects in your body. Sometimes the medications you intake could also do opposite reaction in your body rather than delivering you the expected results. So, when a doctor prescribes you then you can very well consume them. But then, consuming pills to reduce the fat in your body and the chubbiness in your cheeks is not a healthy way.
