Cheek Dimples are those two little “holes” that form on the cheeks, and they are especially noticeable when a person who has them starts smiling. For a long time now, there’s a discussion on whether they are a good or a bad thing, regarding aesthetics and beauty.
To many, cheek dimples are a gift and they appreciate them a lot, while for others they are something that’s not very attractive and want them removed. What is the final answer to this question? Well, it’s all about personal preference, however, the majority of people are attracted to cheek dimples, and some even get them on purpose just so they can look better while smiling.
Today we’re talking about Cheek Dimples and everything that you should know about them, so without any further ado, let’s take a look.
What is the procedure for getting Dimples called?
Dimpleplasty is performed to people who are born without dimples but want to have them out of aesthetic purposes. The procedure is being done in the following manner. It starts with applying a total anesthetic to the treated area, after carefully cleaning and disinfecting it. After the anesthetic takes effect, the surgeon uses a very small biopsy instrument in order to create a hole in the skin where the person wants the dimples to be.
Before all this, the patient is asked to carefully explain what kind of a shape and size they want their dimples to be, so the doctor then proceeds to extract an amount of fat and muscle based on what the patient described earlier. Usually, the standard is about two or three millimeters in length. After doing all of the previous steps, the doctor puts a suture into a position from one side of the cheek muscle to the other side. They are connected with a sling that’s tied in order to create the effect of having natural dimples.
The procedure is pretty easy to do, it doesn’t take a lot of time, and it’s also relatively cheap. Anyone can do it and there are no unwanted side-effects.
The only people that should avoid performing this surgery are those who have a temporary or chronic infection near the mouth area.
How intense is the recovery?
Recovering from Dimpleplasty is relatively easy, and although the first few days might be accompanied by slight soreness and pain, the symptoms are pretty light to deal with. Everything that’s considered to be a post-surgery effect will disappear after two or three days, but while recovering you are still able to do all of your regular daily activities.
As for those wondering if the results are permanent, yes, they are. If the patient follows all the rules and doesn’t suffer any trauma to the area where the surgery was performed, the cheek Dimples will last permanently. If you are trying to achieve the perfect smile, we encourage you to try Dimpleplasty.
