Woman smirking with dimples

Whether you're looking to boost your confidence or simply enhance your facial features, Dimpleplasty may be right for you!  So, what exactly is a dimple you ask? To put it simply, a dimple is a small indentation or crease in the skin, typically on the face that is generally seen as attractive or endearing. Many well-known celebrities have become famous for their dimples, including the likes of Julia Roberts and Alicia Keys. Naturally, dimples are created when the underlying muscle and fat in the cheek contract causing the skin to pucker inward. They are formed by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. While genetics plays a role in determining how likely it is that individuals will have dimples, they aren't necessarily inherited from parents. Moreover, certain facial expressions or habits can increase the appearance of dimples. For example, smiling often or pursing the lips can create an indentation in the skin that looks like a dimple. 

In recent years, dimple creation, otherwise known as Dimpleplasty has become increasingly popular. It is a minor surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia that involves making small incisions on the inside of your mouth to create natural-looking dimples. The premise behind this surgery is the creation of scar tissue that tethers the skin inward. The result is subtle yet effective – giving you beautiful, symmetrical dimples without any obvious scarring or signs of surgery. From a cosmetic perspective, the main benefit of undergoing Dimpleplasty is improved facial aesthetics; some individuals feel that having these facial features gives them greater confidence in social situations and even boosts their self-esteem. The main advantages of the actual procedure are that it is quick and can be completed in just a few minutes, with minimal downtime and no extended recovery period with long lasting results, and minimal scarring. 

No surgical procedure is without its risks, and it is important to consider these before undergoing any type of cosmetic procedure. With that said, the chances of developing an adverse event after Dimpleplasty are extremely low. So, what is the recovery like after surgery? Well, there is essentially little to no downtime associated with this procedure. You should expect some swelling and discomfort for a few days but it should not necessitate the need for prescription pain medication. Most patients are able to go about their regular routines without hesitation. We have many patients traveling from within Florida and across the United States to have their Dimpleplasty procedure performed by our experienced team. I personally have performed this procedure on a patient who went on to enjoy a week-long cruise the next day and did not have any issues or complications. In general, Dimpleplasty is a relatively quick, straightforward procedure that can give you beautiful, natural-looking dimples without any visible signs of surgery. It’s important to weigh the pros and cons of any cosmetic procedure before deciding whether it’s right for you, but with Dimpleplasty, the potential benefits overwhelmingly outweigh the risks. Definitely speak to a qualified cosmetic surgeon to learn more about this procedure and find out if it’s right for you.
