What is a dimple?
Perhaps you’re not quite sure what a dimple even is. In short, a dimple is the natural result of a small defect within the muscle. The skin that sits atop this small muscle defect essentially conforms to the underlying tissue, creating the effect of a dimple in the cheek (or chin sometimes) when you smile. Dr. Lee, a leading Los Angeles dimple surgery provider uses a special technique to actually create these aesthetic notches on the face.
About the procedure
A dimple creation procedure is relatively simple and is typically performed in the office, with the patient under local anesthesia, so that they may remain awake, but comfortable. Creating a dimple involves recreating this naturally occurring manifestation of the muscle. For cheek dimples, Dr. Lee makes a strategically small incision along the inside of your cheek. By using this method, there is no visible scarring left. A stitch is then precisely placed through the inside of the cheek beneath the surface of the skin in the desired placement of the new dimple. When this stitch is tied, it causes a dimpling effect in the overlying skin. The procedure is similar when creating chin dimples. A chin dimple procedure does not leave any visible incisions or scarring on the outside of the patient’s face.
Surgery to create dimples can be done on any cheek or chin. It is Dr. Lee’s goal to give you some of the best dimple creation Los Angeles & Beverly hills has to give, which is why it is vital to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lee to discuss your exact wishes. During your initial consultation with Dr. Lee, you’ll be able to go over your particular goals, for facial enhancement. From there, Dr. Lee will be able to aptly determine the most optimal location for your new dimples that will best serve the rest of your facial features.
There is practically no down time after dimple creation. You will be allowed to return home with your new dimples immediately following your procedure. You may experience some minor swelling in the treated areas. This is normal and will diminish. At first, your new dimples will be visible without smiling, but within a few days to a few weeks time, the dimples will settle in and become more dynamic, meaning they will only appear when you smile, like a natural dimple. Because there are no visible scars or incisions on the outside, your new dimples will look completely natural.
