Dimple Creation

Dimple surgery, also known as dimpleplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that has gained popularity for its ability to create charming dimples on the cheeks. Dimples are often considered attractive and endearing, and many individuals desire them to enhance their facial aesthetics.

This surgical procedure involves creating small depressions in the cheeks, mimicking the natural appearance of dimples. Dimple surgery is relatively straightforward and can be performed on an outpatient basis.

During the procedure, a small incision is made inside the cheek, and a suture is passed through the cheek muscle and tied to create the dimple effect. The result is a subtle, yet noticeable, indentation when the person smiles.
