Dimples have always being considered to be “cute” however not all of us were blessed with that natural “cute” factor. All that can be changed thanks to cosmetic procedures such as dimple creation surgery.
Dimple Creation is possible with small surgery; Dimple Creation procedure is very simple and straightforward when done properly. Dr. Milan Doshi can perform dimple creation surgery for both men and women under nothing more than just local anesthesia.
A natural dimple is usually formed when there is a small defect in the cheek musculature (most often the buccinator muscle). The skin overlying this small defect is stuck down to the underlying connective tissue and creates a dimple in the skin with facial animation (smiling).
Dimple creation surgery can simulate this naturally occurring process. To create a dimple, a small painless incision is made in the inside of your cheek. There is no incision or scar on the outside skin. A small absorbable suture is passed through the inside of the cheek and catches the undersurface of the skin where the dimple is desired. When this suture is tied it causes a dimpling in the overlying skin. At first there is a dimple present even without smiling, but after several days, or sometimes a few weeks, the dimple is only present while smiling or moving the face. The scarring between the inner skin and muscle will cause a permanent dimple even after the suture is absorbed.
Dimple creation surgery can be done on any type or size cheek. You can decide where the dimples will be, or you can have Dr. Milan Doshi decide with you where the most optimal place for the dimples should be on your face.
Dimple creation surgery can be done in our Allure medspa with nothing more than local anesthesia. You will be awake and comfortable during the entire dimple creation surgery process. Special arrangements can be made if you would rather be asleep for the dimple creation surgery. The dimple creation takes about 30 minutes to perform and you can go home right away after the procedure.
Dimple creation surgery is safe and effective, but also potentially reversible. There are minimal complications with dimple formation aside from a little bit of swelling and bruising. You should be able to resume your normal activities on the same day. You will take antibiotics for only a couple of days after your dimple creation surgery.
Although the cheek is the usual place that patients might request a dimple, the chin is also a frequently requested site. It is possible to make chin dimples as well without any incisions on the outside skin.
