Dimple Creation

Dimple Creation Overview

Natural-looking dimples can be created for men and women who wish to have the appearance of dimples. Dimple creation is a procedure that is designed to create dimples on an outpatient basis. It is performed by connecting the skin and the cheek muscle, which pulls the skin inward as the muscle contracts to form a dimple.

A special instrument is placed against the inner cheek. By making circular motions, the instrument cuts through the mucosa, the sub mucosa and the cheek muscle. These tissues are removed from the circular core, which leaves the skin intact. This results in a cylindrical-shaped “defect” under the skin. A surgical knot is made from one side of the defect to the other, which results in the dimpling of the skin, even when a patient does not smile.

Having Realistic Expectations for Dimple Creation

Being honest with yourself about how your body will change and how those changes will affect your life is important. Disappointment may happen, especially if you believe plastic surgery will fix your life problems, save your marriage or cure depression. Having dimple creation will result in dimples on your cheeks. Having dimples may boost your self-confidence, but that won’t change who you are or the way other people feel about you.

Questions to Ask Your Prospective Surgeon

Once you’ve made an appointment for a consultation, take the time to prepare a list of questions and concerns you want to address with your prospective plastic surgeon. The consultation is your opportunity to assess the plastic surgeon as much as it is their opportunity to determine your candidacy for the procedure. Take your time, be thorough and know that you are never required to commit to a procedure or a plastic surgeon because you’ve had a consultation, even if the consultation is free.

There may be different methods for performing dimple creation. You want to make sure that you choose a plastic surgeon whose work you admire. You will be able to see the outcome of some of their surgeries by looking at before-and-after pictures. Have the plastic surgeon thoroughly explain their procedure and why they value a certain technique more than others.

This list of information may help you compile your questions and may encourage you to do some further research on the many different aspects of Dimple Creation:

  • Should I create dimples on my cheeks?
  • How many dimples can I create?
  • What size will the dimples be?
  • What is the recovery time?
  • Are dimple creation results permanent?

If you’re consulting with a plastic surgeon from 1800mysurgeon.com, you can rest assured that you will be meeting with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon. If you already have a plastic surgeon in mind, our qualified patient coordinators can also perform a background check before you schedule your consultation. Most importantly, always trust your instincts during the consultation. The success of your experience will be based on how you feel about your plastic surgeon, the treatment, your recovery and your result.

Dimple Creation Recovery

Since dimple creation is an outpatient surgery that typically takes 30 minutes to perform, patients are able to walk out of the clinic the same day of the surgery. The cheeks swell for a couple of days after surgery and antibiotics are prescribed to prevent infection. Patients may return to normal daily activities immediately after surgery.

Dimple Creation Risks

Any procedure carries certain risks and the possibility of complications and infection. Make sure your plastic surgeon addresses all of your questions and concerns to your satisfaction.

During your consultation, you will want to ask your surgeon about the following risks:

  • Will I have stitches inside of my cheeks?
  • What are the changes of infection?
  • How permanent are the results?

It is important to remember that no plastic surgeon can guarantee your satisfaction with Dimple Creation nor can they deny any risk factors. No matter how rarely risks occur, every procedure carries a certain amount of risk, and you have to decide for yourself if your potential desired result is worth the risk.

Long Term Results of Dimple Creation

Dimple creation results are permanent, but there is a small change of the dimples fading away over time.
