Would you love to have dimples? This newest procedure is taking the younger generations by storm when it comes to quick, minimally-invasive cosmetic surgery that can give their look an extra oomph.
While many beautiful celebrities sport cheek dimples, the relative ease of the procedure is also what’s drawing people in.
What Does a Dimpleplasty Do?
People who choose to have this procedure will get an incision inside their mouth, allowing the surgeon to create a defect in each of their cheek muscles. The surgeon then attaches the muscle to the skin so the appearance of a dimple will occur when the facial muscles are tensed, such as during a smile.
How Long Does it Take?
It’s important for the doctor and the patient to have a consultation session before any procedure actually takes place, as this facial surgery requires a complete understanding of what the patient is looking for. After this initial understanding is reached, the procedure can usually be performed in about 30 minutes on an outpatient basis, allowing the individual to go home the same day.
What Is the Recovery Time?
This is a relatively quick and easy procedure, as stated above. This means there is usually only a little bruising and swelling. The dimples themselves will be permanent for a time (in most cases, only about a month or so). After this, they will only be visible when the patient smiles.
There are certain risks that go along with this surgery, so it is important to speak with your doctor about these before you have it.
