Dimple Creation

Dec 2, 2016Posted by nameless

What is Dimple Creation

Dimples are often seen as a sign of youthfulness, enhancing a person's appearance and making you more unique. A dimple can be created by a simple surgical procedure under local anaesthetic.


During the procedure, a small, circular incision is made on the inside of the cheek, in the mouth. A small dissolvable suture is then made in this incision, joining the inner layer of the skin and the muscle. This creates a dimple. Initially, the dimple will be there at all times, however as the incision and stitching heals, it will become like a natural dimple that only appears when one smiles or laughs.

Later Progress

In the days following the procedure, you may feel a little sore, though this is normally completely managed by simple analgesia such as paracetamol. We recommend that you use an antiseptic mouthwash following the procedure to minimize the chance of infection.
