Dimple Creation - What Is It?

Is there anybody in the world who does not like dimpled cheeks? It is a lovely sight when somebody smiles and a cute dimple is formed. However, very few persons have a natural dimple when they smile. However, plastic surgery technology had advanced so much that it is quite easy to create a dimple. As such, there is a huge demand now for surgically created dimples both from women and from men. The results of this cosmetic procedure are permanent.

Dimple Creation - How Is It Done?

A skilled plastic surgeon would administer a local anesthetic at first. When the anesthetic takes effect, the surgeon would make an incision inside the mouth and carefully create a small depression in the cheek muscle. Once the desired level of depression had been created, the surgeon would close the incision with appropriate sutures. Since the incision is done inside the mouth, there would not be any visible scars. The entire dimple surgery would take about 30 minutes to an hour.

Dimple Creation - After the Surgery:

However, the patient would have swelling in the mouth area for one or two weeks. A liquid diet during this period would be ideal since chewing could be painful. The mouth should be rinsed regularly for a few days with oral antiseptic solutions to avoid infection. The patient would be able to move out of the hospital the same day after a few hours of rest. The patient could resume normal daily routine after about 10-15 days. Dimple creation had become a simple cosmetic procedure at present. Dimple creation could be performed on any kind of cheek, whether lean or chubby.

Abstract Background  Abdominoplasty is the most frequent excisional body contour procedure performed in aesthetic surgery. Secondary abdominoplasty refers to a new excisional procedure for a patient who has previously undergone an excisional abdominoplasty. In the authors’ practice, more than 7% of abdominoplasties are secondary cases and deserve special consideration. Methods  The authors present a retrospective analysis of their experience with 21 secondary cases among 298 abdominoplasties performed between 2001 and 2006. They have considered as secondary cases only those involving patients who have undergone excisional abdomen contour surgery previously. Results  A total of 17 patients underwent surgery during the first year after the primary procedure, and 4 patients had surgery more than 5 years after that procedure. Following the principles described in this report, it was possible to solve the problem in each particular case and to obtain improvements in both trunk contour and patient satisfaction. Conclusions  In planning and designing the procedure, a precise diagnosis of the abdominal deformities is essential. The risks in secondary abdominoplasty are similar to those in the primary procedure. Content Type Journal ArticleCategory Original ArticleDOI 10.1007/s00266-008-9135-9Authors P. S.

If the patient desires a prominent dimple, the surgeon would resort to a larger punch biopsy for removing a bigger portion of soft tissue. Since the skin is left intact, the place where the tissues had been removed would attain a cylindrically shaped defect. The dimple surgery should be a controlled process with a preconceived plan for best results.
