Dimple on cheeks adds cuteness to any face, improves a smile, and adds character. No wonder some women would need to get a minor procedure done to create a dimple on their faces. Additionally, in some societies, dimples are considered a sign of good luck and prosperity. It is possible to create permanent dimples with an effortless and straightforward procedure surgically. It is named Dimple surgery or Dimple Creation.
What is a Dimple?
A common dimple is the end of a tiny hole in a muscle in the cheek described as the buccinator muscle. Even though it’s a genetic condition, it is possible to create the dimple with a minimally invasive surgical procedure called dimpleplasty. The purpose of a dimple is a defect in the muscle. It is seen as a desirable trait and a sign of youth and beauty in many cultures. Even if you have a genetic facial dimple, it is possible that you can lose them or notice a loss of intensity as they get older and the skin, muscle, and physical weight fluctuations.
Types of Dimples
There can be many kinds of dimples on our bodies.
This is the usual standard and known dimple located on the faces. It can be seen on many areas of the cheek, and some people have one dimple instead of two. The person who has the procedure is seen to have lost weight. When consulting with Dr. Vijay Kumar, you will consider the base and placement of your desired dimple.
Often referred to as a “cleft chin,” it is a less obvious dimple on the face, which occurs from a joint to the underlying jaw building like in John Travolta or Vinod Khanna. Since it is a powerful feature, the possibility of receiving a chin dimple is vital if one parent has it.
This type of dimple is also called the “dimple of Venus” after the Roman goddess of beauty, is the smallest known of the three. It is found in the lower part of the back and is more common in women than men.
Dimple Creation procedure technique
The procedure is done under local anesthesia. You can stay awake and relaxed during the whole dimple surgery. The dimple surgery needs about 45 minutes to complete, and you can go back quickly after the procedure.
A dimple is created naturally when there is a minor defect in the cheek musculature (most often the buccinator muscle). The skin overlying this minor defect is stuck down to the underlying connective tissue. It builds a dimple in the skin with facial animation (smiling).
In Dimple creation surgery, this commonly occurring method is simulated. To create a dimple, a little painless hole is made on the inside of your cheek. There is no need to make a hole or scar on the outer skin. A tiny absorbable stitch is passed through the inside of the cheek. It makes the undersurface of the skin where the dimple is desired. When this stitch is tied up, it forms a dimpling in the overlying skin. In the beginning, there is a dimple present even without smiling. Still, the next several days, or sometimes several weeks, the dimple is simply existing while smiling or moving the face. As the injury is healed perfectly, the scar formed between the inner skin and muscle will cause a permanent dimple even after the stitches are consumed.
Dimple-making surgery can be done on any kind or size cheek. However, some faces are probably better candidates than others. Upon your consultation with Dr. Vijay Kumar, you can discuss the most optimal place for the dimples on your face.
What happens after the dimple creation surgery procedure?
Dimple creation operation is safe and effective but also probably reversible. There are no risks or difficulties included with dimple creation. For some days, you can have inflammation and some bruising. You can continue your normal activities the following day. A course of antibiotics for five days will be prescribed after your dimple creation surgery.
Dimple Creation Surgery Aftercare
It’s essential to follow your post-procedure care to ensure proper recovery. An antiseptic mouthwash must be used a couple of times a day to keep the site as germ-free as potential. Additionally, the requirement of antibiotics will be prescribed to aid with quicker healing.
Recovery from Dimpleplasty
When the inner tissue heals, it begins to scarring, which combines the skin’s cheek muscle, forming a dimple when smiling. This time could vary from a few days to several weeks, depending on the healing and tissue extent removed. In a few weeks, your new dimple will start to look natural.
Dimple surgery reversal
Despite being a long-lasting procedure, it does not mean that all cosmetic dimples are entirely unchangeable. Dimple creation may be partly reversible.
In the reversal method, the tissue in the cheek may be discharged, and the skin isolated from the underlying muscle. As among all cosmetic procedures, there exist exceptions.
