A Dimpleplasty is a type of plastic surgery for creating dimple indentations caused by the deeper facial muscles around the bottom of the cheeks. Dimples add a beautiful touch to one’s smile and add more character to one’s expressions. Many people even believe dimples to be a sign of good luck and prosperity. Not everyone is born with this facial trait. Some may have it naturally or also due to a facial injury.
However, it is now possible to create permanent dimples through a quick and minimally invasive procedure.
Dimple Surgery Procedure:
A small amount of local anaesthesia is induced at the points marked to create the dimples over the facial skin.
The procedure is performed from inside of the cheeks, with no external incisions.
Once incisions are made from inside the cheeks, a small number of muscles approximating to a length of 3 mm to 4 mm are removed from below those points to create the indentations on both the cheeks.
Then, an absorbable suture is used to secure the underside of the cheek skin to the deeper soft tissues of the cheek.
Finally, the insides of the cheeks are secured with either one or two absorbable stitches, which dissolve over the next few days.
It is also possible to make chin dimples as well without any external incisions.
Duration Of The Surgery:
The surgery takes about 20 - 25 minutes for completion, and as it is performed under a small amount of local anaesthesia, you will be allowed to leave right away after the procedure.
If you’re travelling from out of town, Dimpleplasty can be performed on the same day of your visit without any need for staying another day.
Post Surgery Precautions:
You can start eating soft foods within a few hours of the surgery.
You can opt for some over-the-counter pain medications only in case you need it.
You must take the prescribed antibiotics to avoid infections.
You must maintain proper oral hygiene by using antiseptic gargles after eating or drinking.
You may experience mild swelling and bruise for a few days after the surgery, but you can resume your normal daily activities from the next day itself.
The New Dimple’s Appearance & Durability:
Right after the surgery, the dimple will stay intact even when you’re not smiling for a few weeks.
As it gradually heals, the dimples will slowly flatten out and will appear like the natural dimples only when you smile.
Usually, the dimples remain permanent like natural dimples.
