It is possible to surgically create permanent dimples, and the surgical procedure is very simple and straightforward when done properly. It can be performed under local anesthesia.
What to expect before procedure?
Our experienced plastic surgeon will discuss with you, the most optimal place for dimples to be created on your face.
What is the procedure like?
To create a dimple, a small painless incision is made in the inside of the cheek. There is NO incision or scar on the outside skin. A small absorbable suture is passed through the inside of the cheek and catches the under surface of the skin, where the dimple is desired. When the suture is tied, it causes dimple in the overlying skin. At first there is a dimple present even without smiling or moving the face. The scarring between the inner skin and muscle will cause a permanent dimple even after the suture is absorbed. The procedure should take under 45 minutes.
Is it safe and what is post care?
Dimple creation surgery is safe and effective, but also potentially reversible. There will be a bit of swelling and bruising. You should be able to resume your normal activities after the procedure. You will take antibiotics for only a couple of days after your dimple creation surgery.
