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.
