While chubby cheeks may have been adorable as a child, many people find them less attractive as they get older. In fact, many adults dealing with excess facial fat feel very self-conscious about their appearance.
Chipmunk cheeks—as they are humorously referred to—occur when the pads of fat in the lower part of the cheek augment the face, almost as if a person has a mouth full of nuts (hence the nickname). Most cases are not that extreme, but even the slightest protrusion of cheek fat can cause concern.
