Many men and women wish they had been born with charming dimples to adorn their face. In some cultures, dimples are considered a sign of good luck and prosperity. Also, dimples help brighten up a smile and add character.
What is dimple creation surgery ?
Also known as dimpleplasty, this facial plastic surgery procedure makes the small divots known as "dimples" in the tissue of your cheek. Dimples show when you smile, if you have them. Men and women express interest in having dimples.
How dimple plastic surgery is performed ?
The procedure includes the following steps:-
- Assessing the best location of the dimples, where they would appear naturally.
- Making an incision on the inner surface of your cheek, inside your mouth (there are no scars made on the outer surface).
- Tying an absorbable suture at the location of the incision.
How much time it takes recovery after dimple creation?
Recovery from dimpleplasty is relatively straightforward. You don’t need to stay in the hospital. In fact, you can usually go home immediately after the surgery. Soon after the procedure, you might experience mild swelling. You can apply cold packs to reduce swelling, but it will usually go away on its own within a few days.
Most people can return to work, and other regular activities two days after having a dimpleplasty. Your surgeon will likely want to see you a couple of weeks after the procedure to assess the results.
Are there complications ?
Complications from a dimpleplasty are relatively rare. However, the possible risks may be serious if they do occur.
If you experience excessive bleeding or oozing at the site of the procedure, see your doctor right away. You could have an infection. The earlier the infection is treated, the less likely it will spread to the bloodstream and cause further complications.
Results will last for ?
There is usually a period of time after the dimple creation surgery is done where the dimple is present even when you are not smiling. This period is variable and can last anywhere from several days to several weeks and sometimes several months. As you heal, the dimple will usually slowly flatten out when you are not smiling and will only be present when you are smiling. The procedure will result in a permanent dimples.
