Dimple surgery is the process of creating small cavities in the cheeks when the person smiles.
Indications Creating dimples in the cheeks.
Dimples are an anatomical feature due to the zygomatic muscle, a muscle in the face that connects the cheekbone to the corner of the lips which becomes active, especially when smiling. When this muscle is shorter than normal and when the person laughs, it creates a small indentation in the cheek.
In some countries, dimples are considered a sign of fertility and luck. In England, for example, dimples are said to be the marks made by the fingerprint of God on the cheek of a newborn child.
Superstition apart, dimples have an indisputable charm. Some people are lucky enough to have this particularity as a “genetic” legacy. For others, there is a procedure that allows them to be created artificially.
How the procedure works
The operation is performed under local anaesthesia on an outpatient basis and lasts barely half an hour. There are no scars.
To create a dimple, the surgeon enters through the inside of the mouth and shortens the zygomatic muscle on a tiny surface area. There is thus an adhesion between the skin and the inner lining of the cheeks and a small visible indentation is formed when you smile.
The dimples become very pronounced immediately after the operation for a period of about fifteen days. After that, they will only be visible when the person smiles.
The cheeks will remain swollen for two to three days. The surgeon will prescribe antibiotics and mouthwashes for five days to prevent any risk of infection.
You can resume work immediately.
The final result is obtained after one month. It is very natural looking. The dimples are invisible when resting and a slight indentation appears when the person smiles or laughs.
