Despite diet and exercise,nothing seems to affect the fatty deposits in your cheeks, chin, jawline, or neck as these areas do not usually respond to diet and exercise. Localized deposits of fat cells from the body can only be removed through facial liposuction surgery. The result is reshaping these bulging areas into more attractive and youthful facial contours.
