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 anesthetic.
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 through 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.
In the days following the procedure, you may feel a little sore, though this is normally completely managed by simple analgesia such as paracetamol.
