Throughout the world, dimples are often considered to be a desirable feature. In fact, in Eastern parts of the world, dimples are considered to represent good fertility and fortune.
A dimple occurs as a result of a small defect in the cheek muscle. This causes the skin to get stuck down to the connective tissue. While some may consider this a flaw, many people consider it to be a feature they wish they had. Fortunately, you can now achieve your desired look thanks to dimple creation surgery.
Dimpleplasty, otherwise known as dimple creation surgery, allows you to have the dimples you’ve always wanted. The newly created dimples will even be visible when you’re not smiling.
Dimple creation surgery is considered popular because it is such a simple procedure – it is done very quickly, you will be awake but unable to feel pain due to the local anaesthetic, and there is very little to no downtime, you will be able to resume your normal day-to-day routine on the same day.
Dimple creation is ideal for those who:
- Wish to improve their image or self-esteem
- Want to enhance their smile with a dimple
- Relieve pain and discomfort
- Have some skin laxity remaining
Before any surgery, you will be required to have a consultation. The consultation begins by having an opportunity to discuss your ideas, concerns and expectations about the dimple creation procedure with your surgeon, and ask any relevant questions you may have.
Your surgeon will:
- Take a focused history and examine you
- Explain the dimple creation procedure
- Take your needs and preferences into account when deciding on the most appropriate treatment option for you
Dimple creation surgery is considered to be a minor surgical procedure which will help to enhance the facial features and smile.
The surgery will be performed under a local anaesthetic, so you will not feel any pain or discomfort.
The procedure involves a biopsy instrument being placed against the buccal mucosa (inner cheek). Then, a circular cut is made through the cheek muscles. While the skin is left intact, tissue will be removed, leaving a circular shadow. The incision is then stitched shut. These stitches will be dissolvable, so there is no need to attend another appointment to remove them.
Will I be left with a scar?
No incision is made on the outer cheek so therefore you will not be left with a scar.
Dimple creation surgery takes nothing more than an hour and you will be able to return home once the effects of the local anaesthetic have worn off.
In the days following the procedure, you can expect to see some minor swelling and bruising. However, this will fade over time. Take note that one can get back to normal daily routine the very next day after the procedure.
The sutures used to close the incision inside the cheek will dissolve within two weeks of your surgery. Once the healing process is complete, the cheek muscle will connect with the skin, and the new, natural looking dimple will be formed.
