Dimpleplastic surgery is one of the fastest growing procedures we offer. Just imagine – having enviable, subtle dimples adding that special something to your smile.
The procedure is surprisingly easy! It is typically performed right in our office where the patient’s cheeks are numbed and small incisions are made inside the cheek and sutures are used to stitch the desired dimple into place. Patients require different degrees of suturing depending on the strength of their cheek muscles. The sutures help the tissue heal into place and over time the dimpled area softens and looks more and more natural.
Patients have experienced some minor bruising and swelling after the procedure. This bruising and swelling typically subsides 48 hours after surgery. It is normal for the cheek area to feel tight following surgery. This feeling will loosen up in time – usually 2-3 weeks after surgery.
