Hi I am a beginner at Blender and I tried to make this pig model. I think it looks ok, but I would like to make it a bit smoother (the head mainly).

Is this possible?

I tried subdividing but that deforms the model a bit too much.

Thanks for the help in advance :)

You were on the right track with subdivision :).

One way would be to use the Subdivision Modifier
Then just add some loopcuts, to get the shape you want.

And you're done.
That is one weird piglet

you can't make an object smoother without adding more vertices. You can do this automatically with the subdivision modifier, or by hand by adding loop cuts (Ctrl + R) or subdividing certain edges.

There is also a Subdivide Smooth option, that tries to estimate a smoother version. but it doesn't always look great but allows you to manually adjust things afterwards.
