Dimple surgery or dimpleplasty is a reality like rhinoplasty you know the nose job. You must have heard how most of your favorite stars had those. Can you surgically get dimples? Yes, you can.
So can you surgically get dimples? Yes, it is simple where the cosmetic surgeon shortens your cheek muscle by making an incision from the inside of your cheek. Therefore, no scar is visible on your outer cheek. The shortening of muscle is what causes natural dimples in the first place.


When you want a plastic surgery to get dimples, you have to book an appointment with a cosmetic surgeon in his office by phone or email. You will be required to indicate when you want to go for dimple creation surgery. This is to allow the surgeon to plan. Furthermore, you may be required to make a deposit so that it not just a word of mouth business.

On the d-day for plastic surgery to get dimples, the initial stage will entail marking where you want the beauties to appear. This is made possible with computer imaging. You can tell the surgeon where you want the dimples, but not the size or depth of the beauty marks. The surgeon assesses your skin tissue, muscle and fat to determine the depth and size of your dimples. Therefore, it is entire on how much or how less you have in terms of skin and muscle.

After marking on the outside, an incision inside your cheek is made. The incision scars the muscle and inner skin of your cheek. The surgeon further passes an absorbable suture in the cut, which pulls on your inner cheek where there is already a mark on the outside. Consequently, after about 20- 30 minutes you have your dimples. The incision takes place when you are under local anesthesia so the whole process is painless.
After dimple creation surgery, the dimples are usually visible even in the absence of a smile or facial movements. However, on healing of the scar, the dimples will be visible like natural dimpleswhenever you smile or make other facial movements. Furthermore, the scar will be on the inside and not on your cheek. The healing process may take days or weeks.
