    Dimple Creation

    Dimples on cheeks act as addon in beauty and considered as ‘cute’ by many. The demand for surgically created dimples is increasing. This is one of safe and effective surgery for both men and women as it is done under local anesthesia as a day care procedure but in apprehensive patients it can be done under general anaesthesia.

    Can dimple creation surgery be offered to anybody ?

    Yes, except those who have

    • Bleeding Disorders
    • Patients with underlying multiple medical comorbidities. best-dimples-

    How major is this operation ?

    The average operative time is 45-60 min.  

    What is the surgical procedure in dimple creation surgery?

    Under local anesthesia, a small depression is created in the muscle of cheek region. This is done through the inside of the mouth without leaving anyexternal scars. A natural dimple is usually formed when there is a small defect in the cheek musculature. After healing the skin overlying this small defect gets stuck down to the underlying connective tissue and creates a dimple in the skin with facial animation (smiling).

    Do I need to get admitted?

    Yes, as a day care basis.

    How is the position of dimple decided?

    You can decide where the dimples will be, or you can have our surgeon decide with you about where the most optimal place for the dimples should be on your face.

    Does it pains after surgery?

    Once the anesthesia effect wears off one may feel slight discomfort. Patients will be prescribed pain medications.

    How much rest is required following surgery?

    Following surgery there may be mild discomfort and swelling, so you are advisable to do your daily activity and avoid too much lying down.

    Is there any follow up required following surgery ?

    The sutures inside the mouth are absorbable so no need for suture removal. We expect first visit in week time and later in 3 month time.  In case of any problems we will be happy to help you.

    When does the final result evident?

    Dimple created is permanent. Initially due to the swelling results may not be evident. Once the swelling settles it will be obvious only when you smile. This final result may take around 2-3 months’ time.

    Is it reversible?

    Yes, but reversal would need another surgical procedure in the form of recreation of the space between the skin and the muscle and injecting fat in that place.
