Dimple Surgery

A natural dimple is usually found when there is a small defect in the cheek musculature.

It is possible to surgically creat permanet dimples and the surgical procedure to creat dimples is very simple and straight forward when done properly

  • How long does Dimple Creation Surgery Take?

    It takes about 20 minutes to perform Dimple Creation Surgery. The dimple procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia. It can be done on the same day of your initial consultation, especially if you are coming in from out of town.

  • Is dimple creation surgery permanent?

    The procedure will result in a permanent dimple about 90% of the time. Rarely, if the suture breaks during the immediate healing process, or if inadequate scar tissue forms, the dimple may result in being shallow or could disappear completely. That is one of the risks of having dimple surgery performed.

  • Do I need to miss work after having Dimple Creation Surgery?

    You will most likely have some swelling in the cheek after the dimple creation surgery. This is usually minimal. Depending on what you do for a living, you might not need to miss any work at all after your dimple creation surgery is done. The swelling usually subsides in a few days.

  • Do I need to take any medicine before or after my dimple creation procedure?

    The operating Cosmetic surgeon will give you a prescription for antibiotics to start taking the morning of your procedure. You will take these antibiotics for a few days after your dimple creation procedure is done. Usually pain is manageable and mild after the Dimple creation surgery. You will be asked to stop taking certain medications at least 1 week prior to your procedure, as certain medicines thin your blood.

  • How long does it take the dimple to look natural?

    There is usually a period of time after the dimple creation surgery is done where the dimple is present even when you are not smiling. This period is variable and can last anywhere from several days to several weeks and sometimes several months. As you heal, the dimple will usually slowly flatten out when you are not smiling and will only be present when you are smiling. Although it might be possible that the indentation will last longer than a few months it is not common. We would rather air on the side of caution and have you expect to have an indentation there for a while.

  • Can I choose where the dimple is placed?

    Yes. You and Dr. will discuss the best place for you to have the dimple. You can also have just one dimple placed, or two.

  • What are some of the complications that can happen with Dimple Creation Surgery?

    Mild swelling and bruising are the most common issues. It is a potential possibility to have temporary weakness of your cheek muscle after the dimple creation that can last days or sometimes weeks. This is very rare. You might not like the dimple and might want it to be deeper or more shallow. The operating Cosmetic surgeon can potentially reverse the dimple creation surgery in the event that you do not like it, although the dimple reversal procedure may not be always successful. Very rarely, an infection may develop. You will be placed on a short course of antibiotics to prevent an infection from occurring. Very rarely the suture holding the dimple breaks prematurely due to excess swelling or other variables. The dimple could also potentially not scar down adequately leaving you with too shallow a dimple, or the dimple might disappear completely.

  • Can I eat and drink what I want after Dimple Creation Surgery?

    You are free to eat and drink whatever you like after the dimple creation procedure. You will have some pain and discomfort in the cheek after dimple surgery, but it should be minimal and should not interfere with your ability to chew and eat normally.

  • What days can I have my procedure done on?

    The dimple creation surgery can be performed on any days of the week depending on scheduling.

  • Is Dimple Surgery reversible?

    It is potentially possible to reverse the surgery with a small procedure to loosen the dimple. This procedure might not be successful all of the time though.

  • Can I decide how deep or shallow my new dimple will be?

    Somewhat. The Dimple surgery is adjustable to a certain extent. There are many variables that might affect the depth, size and shape of your dimple. Some of these variables include how thick your cheeks are, how much fat is present, the shape of your face, and the balance of your facial muscles. You can choose the location of the dimple on your face. You will have a chance to speak with us in detail about the dimple surgery process and decide the exact dimple that will be right for you.

  • Do I need to come back to have any stitches removed after dimple surgery?

    No. Self dissolving suture are used in the dimple fabrication process. Its always preferable to have a follow up appointment.

  • How do I need to prepare for my Dimple Surgery?

    You should stop taking aspirin, or any other NSAIDs, or fish oil at least one week before your procedure. We will provide you with a few ice packs to use afterwards. Our patient care coordinator will help you every step of the way, so if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask!

  • Can I travel back and forth on the same day for my Dimple Surgery?

    Yes. If you are interested in having your dimple creation procedure performed on the day of your consultation please let us know when you are scheduling your appointment. Many of our patients walk in for their consultation on the appointment day, have the dimple surgery performed, and then travel back home that same day. Although its better to have a follow up appointment.
