Dimple Creation

Dimple creation is a surgical procedure to craft permanent dimples. A natural dimple is formed when there is a small flaw in the cheek musculature. The skin above the defect is stuck down to the underlying connective tissue and forms a dimple in the skin.

Dimple creation surgery is a safe and effective method to attain desirable aesthetic results with minimal invasive technique. The surgery is a daycare procedure and the results are permanent. The treatment can be performed in both men and women. An advantage of the dimple creation procedure is that it does not produce any external scars as the incision is made inside the mouth in the cheek area.

Dimples are considered as a cute facial trait. In some culture they are even considered as a symbol of luck and prosperity. Dimples are a sign of youth and beauty which draw attention to the smile. People born with natural dimples may lose or reduce the depth of the dimples as the skin tissues and muscles loose and sag due to aging.

Types of Dimples

Cheek Dimples – Most popular and common type of dimple are located on the cheek area. Dimples on the cheek add angularity to the face.

Chin Dimple – also known as cleft chin is formed from a connection to the underlying jaw structure

Back dimple – least common type of dimple and is situated in the lower part of the back. Mostly found in women.

Dimple creation surgery procedure

The aesthetic surgeon initiates the procedure by administering a dose of local anesthesia to relax the facial tissue and muscles. A small incision is made on the inside of the cheek and small absorbable sutures are conceded through the inside of the cheek and grab the undersurface of the skin at the desired location. The suture is tied causing a dimple in the overlying skin.

After the surgery, the dimple is visible even without facial expression or smiling. In few days, the scarring of the skin and the muscle creates a permanent dimple after the suture is absorbed and it is shown off while smiling.

Post operative care is instructed by the aesthetic surgeon that has to be followed without fail. As oral cavity is more prone to infection, special care has to be taken. Using antiseptic mouthwash helps keep the incision site germ free and reduce the risk of infections. Medication is prescribed to prevent bacterial attach and to fasten the healing process.
