Dear Penny
There is no way that one can direct weightloss to specific body areas like the face by means of diet. However most people complain that when they go on a slimming diet, the first place they lose weight is in the face. So if you are overweight all round, then do use a balanced slimming diet and exercise to lose weight, which should also slim down your face.
If you are not overweight then you may have to consult a cosmetic surgeon who will advise if he/she can do a procedure to reduce the size of your cheeks.
