Dimple Creation

How is natural dimple formed?

When in the cheek muscles, usually in the buccinator muscles there is a small defect; it leads to the formation of natural dimples. The skin over the defect in the cheek muscles, jams down to the connective tissue that is lying below it and so when the person smiles, the dip in the muscles show up as dimples.

Artificial creation of dimples by the surgery

If you are not bestowed with a natural dimple, then you can get one, by the aid of cosmetic surgery. The dimple creation surgery is easy and simple.

The cosmetic surgeon will make a small incision inside of your cheek. After the incision, through the inside portion of the cheek, a small absorbable structure is passed. This absorbable structure is then tied on the desired dimple location. After a few weeks of the surgery, when the suture is absorbed, the scaring between the inner muscles and skin causes the formation of permanent dimple. This process is painless and there is no scar or incision mark on the outer portion of the skin.

Initially, the dimples are displayed even without smiling but after a few weeks, the dimple is displayed only when the person talks or smiles.

What is dimple reversible?

If the patient does not like the look of his/her dimple and wants to undo it, he/she can go for dimple reversible. The cosmetic surgeon will to loosen a dimple perform another set of procedures.

Is there any suitable type of skin for dimple creation surgery?

Although some skin types may be better suitable for the dimple creation surgery but technically it can be conducted on any type of skin. You can chose where you want your dimple to be, but your cosmetic surgeon can guide you about the most favourable place for your dimples after considering your face structure and skin.

How much recovery time does the dimple creation surgery demands?

The dimple creation surgery takes about 20 minutes and after the surgery is over, you can go back to your house. You may opt for local anaesthesia and be awake during your surgery or if you want to sleep during the surgery, you can go for full anaesthesia. The call is yours though local anaesthesia will suffice.

The dimple creation surgery is not only effective and safe but is also reversible. Usually, there is no complication in the surgery except for some bruising and swelling. The next day of the surgery, you will be able to resume your normal day to day activities. After the operation, you need to take antibiotics for a few days.

Risk involved in the dimple creation surgery

Usually, in about 90% cases, the dimple formed is permanent. In very rare cases, some irregularity  may occur. After the immediate healing process, the suture may break or due to the formation of insufficient scars, the dimple may completely disappear or become shallow.

Complication after the dimple creation surgery

The most common problems that may be observed after the dimple creation surgery are mild bruising or swelling. In few cases, the muscles of the cheek may temporary become weak that may last up to few days or weeks. In very rare cases, after the surgery an infection may break out. Due to excessive swelling or some other reasons, the structure responsible for the formation of dimple may break permanently causing the dimple to disappear or becoming shallow. In some cases, the patient may not like the look, depth or the position of the dimple and may want it reversed/ may want a location change.

Precautions to be taken before and after the dimple creation surgery

The team of your cosmetic surgeons will ask you to take certain precautions, before and after undergoing the dimple creation surgery. At least one week prior to the surgery, stop taking certain medicines such as Motrin, aspirin, Advil or any other form of NASID or fish oil. On the recommendation of your surgeon, start taking arnica montana tablets 2 to 3 days prior to the surgery. It would be beneficial if you after the surgery try to consume soft foods for a few days. Some of the patients have also suggested going for popsicles after the surgery as it reduces the pain and helps in numbing the cheeks for some time. The cosmetic surgeon will also hand you some ice packs after the surgery to reduce the pain.
