Dimples are considered a sign of youth and beauty which accentuate the smile of the person possessing them. Even though the cause of dimple is a defect in the muscle, in many cultures it is seen as a highly attractive trait, promoting the look of innocence.
Although dimple is a hereditary trait, it can be created with a minimally invasive surgical procedure. In the past, dimple creation is created using a puncture technique which creates bad scarring to the skin. However, our doctors have created a quick, relatively painless, outpatient procedure which takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
To create dimples, the procedure is performed via a small incision on the inside of the cheeks. There are no scars or incisions on the outside skin but only a small needle mark where the local anesthesia is given.
1. How is the downtime like?
As our dimple creation procedures are not the old radical method of punch incision, the swelling will subside in about 1 week. Initially the dimples may look slightly obvious due to swelling but eventually becomes more natural as the swelling subsides.
2. Is it permanent?
Yes our method for dimple creation is permanent yet reversible.
3. Can i choose the shape or location of my dimples?
Yes you can. Of course this will be further decided during the consultation with the doctor.
4. Can i choose how deep my dimple will be?
Yes you can too! the depth of the dimples are usually depending on the muscle attachments and how you smile. However, our doctor can also help to adjust the depth during the procedure. This will be further explained during the pre-procedure consultation.
