In brief: Beauty

Is in the eye of the beholder. Chubby cheeks are considered a positive when you're a baby, but may not be as you age.
Beauty is, however, in the eye of the beholder. Generally they are due to weight gain, and weight loss may help. Check w/your doctor for possible medical causes that can be corrected. Otherwise plastic surgery may be helpful for some. Avoid internet scams.

In brief: Assuming the

"chubbiness" isn't related to an underlying issue like Cushing's disease or a medications like prednisone, unfortunately spot fat reduction isn't feasible.
Weight loss may help but the fat reduction will occur based on your genetic predisposition of fat loss, not necessarily your cheeks first. There are surgical interventions available if you really feel the need to address this issue.
