Dimpleplasty is a plastic surgery that is used to create dimples on the cheeks. Dimples are occured when we smile. Mostly they are located on the bottoms of the cheeks. Some people may also have chin dimples or pilonidal dimples.
Not everyone is born with this facial feature. For some people, dimples naturally occur as a result of indentations in the dermis caused by the deeper facial muscles. Others dimples may be occured as because of an injury.
Regardless of their causes, dimples are regarded as a sign of beauty, good luck, and even fortune in some cultures. Due to those benefits, the number of dimple surgeries has increased significantly in recent years.

A dimpleplasty surgery is performed on as an outpatient basis so you can get the procedure done at your surgeon’s office without going to hospital. Also there is no need to be put under general anesthesia.
Firstly, your doctor will apply a topical anesthetic such as lidocaine to the area of skin. This helps you to not experience any pain or discomfort during the surgery. It takes about 10 minutes for the anesthetic to be effective.
Then your doctor uses a small biopsy instrument to make a hole in your skin to create a dimple manually. A small amount of muscle and fat is removed to help in this creation. The area is around 2 to 3 millimeters in length.
Firstly our surgeon builds a space for the next dimple, then positions a suture (sling) from one side of the cheek muscle to the other. The sling is then tied to set the permanent dimple in place.
This operation cen be completed in 45 minutes by our Professional surgeons.
