Dimple Creation | Dimpleplasty surgery is a procedure to create dimples on the cheeks. Dimples are the indentations that occur when people smile. They’re most often located on the bottoms of the cheeks. Some people may also have chin dimples.
For some people, dimples are naturally occurring from indentations in the dermis caused by the deeper facial muscles. Others may be caused by injury.
Dimples are regarded by some cultures as a sign of beauty, good luck, and even fortune. Due to these perceived notions, the number of dimple surgeries has increased significantly in recent years.
Positioning of the dimpleThe position of the dimple is marked by the patient in front of the mirror. In patients having natural dimples, if the person sucks his cheeks inside, the area of the maximum depression is the area of the dimple. Similarly, the patient is asked to create a negative suction and suck the cheeks inside. The site of the maximum depression is the marked site of the dimple.
From the cosmetic viewpoint the point of intersection of the perpendicular line dropped from the external canthus and horizontal line drawn from the highest point of the Cupid’s bow laterally is the point where the dimple should be placed.
