Dimple creation surgery is fast and virtually painless. Called a “dimpleplasty,” it is an outpatient procedure, and will not require a hospital stay or a long period of recovery. The first step is to determine the exact location of your new dimples. With help from our surgeon, and the ability to review our extensive gallery, the correct and most attractive location will be chosen for the enhancement. Dimples can be created on any sized cheek.
Actual Patient Not a Model
HOW THE PROCEDURE IS PERFORMED: COMPLETED IN MINUTES
A small incision is made on the inside of your cheek and a tiny piece of your cheek muscle removed from the area. The procedure leaves no visible scars. When performed correctly, the dimples will look natural, and only appear when you smile. It is important that you have this procedure from a plastic surgeon who has deep experience and respect in the medical community, as you want the surgery to result in dimples that appear completely natural. As the precise placement of your new dimples is a crucial issue, you want a surgeon who has an eye for beauty and who is recognized as an artist in the field of cosmetic enhancements. The procedure takes only about 30 minutes to perform, and involves the placement of an absorbable suture, which will dissolve as you heal.
RECOVERY TIME FOR DIMPLE SURGERY
The recovery from the procedure is typically rapid. Initially, your new dimples will be visible at all times, but as your cheek heals, they become natural in appearance, and only appear when you smile — just as natural dimples. A few hours after surgery is complete, you will be able to eat soft foods, and can return to your regular activities within a day or two. Expect to return to work one or two days after surgery.
AN AESTHETIC FACIAL ENHANCEMENT: DIMPLED CHEEKS CAN BE YOURS
Dimples can make your cheeks look narrower, and are considered to be cute, attractive, or even lucky. Although the procedure is a minor surgery, the results can be a significant enhancement to the aesthetic beauty of your face. Dimples create a subtle attraction, and when occurring naturally, are actually a flaw in the formation of the cheek muscles. If nature did not give you the dimples you want, we can help.
