Dimple Creation

A smile with a dimple can steal someone's heart anytime. And if you are looking for that perfect dimple smile, a simple 30 minutes procedure can bring that perfect dimple smile to your face. Anatomically a dimple is formed when there is a tiny gap in the cheek muscles and the skin overlying it gets adhered to the underlying muscle to make a dynamic dimple that appears while smiling or talking. Cosmetic surgically using the same principles can help to create a dimple.

Ideal Position and Candidate for Dimple Surgery

Always discuss the ideal position with your plastic surgeon, where the dimple should be created to give the best appearance while smiling. The surgery can be done on any skin type and cheek size.


The procedure is a simple day-care procedure done under local anesthesia. A small cut is made on the oral internal surface of the cheek, and a small chunk of mucosa, fat, and muscle is removed, and one or two absorbable stitches are placed to fix it to the cheek skin where the dimple is desired. After surgery, there is no need for the hospital stay and can go home at the same time.


The results are immediate and can see immediate results after the surgery. Initially, the dimple is static, i.e., the dimple is present even when the person is not smiling. But after a few weeks, the skin appears flat, and the dimple is seen only while smiling.
