Dimples on cheeks are considered cute by many. Men and women are equally demanding this procedure now a days and therefore the demand for surgically created dimples is increasing..
The procedure involves simulating the natural way a dimple is formed, by forming a connection between the skin and the cheek muscle, such that when the muscle contracts, it pulls the skin inwards to form a dimple.
Dimple Creation usually takes 30 – 40 mins.
This is a safe and effective surgery and is done as a day care procedure and you can leave immediately following the procedure.
There is usually minimal swelling and the after care steps are just as simple and uncomplicated as the procedure. The after care usually involves regular mouth rinsing with Betadine or chlorhexidine antiseptic mouthwash. Normal activities can be resumed straight after the procedure.
The skin will flatten out in a week or two when the suture is absorbed. The internal scarring which takes place will connect the muscle to the skin, creating a dimple.
