Do you wish to have a dimple on each cheek?

Dimple surgery, also known as Dimpleplasty, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that aims to create natural-looking dimples on the cheeks or chin. Compared to other types of facial plastic surgery, this procedure is relatively simple and can be performed under local anesthesia.

Dimpleplasty is a suitable option for individuals with adequate volume in their cheeks and firm, elastic skin. Our specialist plastic surgeon carefully examines the patient’s facial structure to determine the ideal placement of the dimple. After marking the desired location, a small incision is made on the inside of the cheek, and a tiny portion of muscles and fat is removed. The incision is then closed using dissolvable suture threads.

How does it work?

Dimple surgery, also known as dimpleplasty, is typically performed on an outpatient basis, utilizing local anesthesia. The procedure involves making a small incision inside the cheek and using a dissolvable suture to secure the dimple in its desired position. As the suture gradually dissolves, scar tissue develops, providing support and maintaining the dimple’s shape.


The procedure offers several benefits that enhance facial balance and overall appearance. It can boost confidence, enhance the smile, and improve self-esteem related to one’s outer appearance. Patients have the option to select designer dimples based on their preferences, such as choosing the length, depth, or shallowness of the dimples. They can also decide the specific location where they want the dimples to be placed.

What to expect after treatment?

After the procedure, some patients may experience minor bruising and swelling, but these symptoms typically subside within a few days. In fact, most patients do not require any downtime and can resume their normal activities immediately. The results of the procedure are noticeable right away, allowing patients to see the desired dimples soon after the surgery.

Are the results of Dimpleplasty permanent?

The results of Dimpleplasty are generally considered permanent. When a small incision is made on the inside of the cheek or chin, and sutures are used to create a connection between the underlying muscle and the skin, the shape of the dimple is maintained. However, it is important to note that changes in weight and the natural aging process can potentially alter the results over time. Despite these factors, Dimpleplasty typically provides long-term results, allowing individuals to enjoy their dimples for many years.

To summarize, dimpleplasty is a cosmetic treatment that is designed to create dimples on the cheeks or chin. It involves a small incision and the use of sutures to connect the underlying muscle with the skin, resulting in the formation of dimples. The results of dimpleplasty are typically long-lasting, allowing individuals to enjoy their dimples for an extended period. However, it is important to note that factors such as changes in weight and the natural aging process can potentially impact the appearance of the dimples over time. Therefore, it is advisable to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon or cosmetic specialist to discuss personal expectations and the potential outcomes of the procedure.
