If you have always wanted to dimple when you smile but do not have a natural dimple, there is a simple cosmetic surgery that can easily remedy the situation.
Dimple creation is a minor cosmetic surgery that involves making a small depression in the cheek to create a dimple. It is done purely for aesthetic reasons.
The procedure for creating a dimple is performed under a local or general anesthesia. Using a punch biopsy method a circular core of the inner cheek is removed while keeping the skin intact to create a small, shallow cylindrical shaped defect. This defect or depression is closed by suturing through one side of the cheek muscle, a dermis layer and then the cheek muscle on the other side of the depression. The entire procedure takes around 30 to 60 minutes.
Swelling and pain are likely to be experienced for up to 2 weeks however normal activities can be resumed almost immediately after the procedure.
