In the area of ​​the cheeks or chin

Do you also think about dimples in the area of ​​the cheeks, for example? In Asia, dimples are a sign of happiness and fertility. In the West, the presence of dimples is considered unique and attractive. The surgical procedure is comparatively simple, can be carried out quickly and is possible under local anesthesia.

Operative procedure

Dimples are usually found on both sides of the face and are only visible with facial expressions. A congenital dimple is a congenital muscular gap in the cheek area, so that with facial expressions, the skin over the muscular gap is pulled inwards. The dimple operation, performed under local anesthesia, imitates this innate muscular gap by creating the necessary muscular gap from the inside of the mouth.

The dimple formation process takes about 20 minutes and you can be released immediately after the operation. No implants are required. The overcorrection that is initially necessary usually flattens out in the following 1-2 weeks.

There is an internal scarring between the muscles and the overlying skin, that Dimple has arisen. The dimple is now visible when laughing. In principle, dimples can be made on any part of the cheek. They can be molded on one or both sides. The size of the dimple can be determined by the patient.

Behavior after surgery

As a rule, the cheek area is slightly swollen. However, this swelling subsides very quickly. Regular mouthwashes with antiseptic solutions and the use of antibiotic-containing medication is necessary for a week.

You will be able to work from the next day after the operation. For a period of 2 weeks, however, you should avoid sporting activities that could cause facial injuries.

Experience has shown that the final result can be seen after about one month.

Risks and complications:

As with every operation, there are basically dangers such as wound infection, risk of subsequent bleeding, scarring and over or under correction.

A permanently visible dimple without facial expressions would also be conceivable. Long-term results are not yet known because it is a relatively new surgical procedure. It is also not possible to predict in advance of the operation whether the desired effect will occur after the operation.

Behavior before dimple surgery

Sobriety should be observed 6 hours before the operation. Smoking should be avoided two weeks before and two weeks after the operation. The same applies to drinking alcohol.

And after the operation?

After meals, a mouthwash should be strictly observed for a period of 14 days.
Take the prescribed antibiotics according to the doctor’s prescription.
Tablets containing paracetamol can be taken in pain.
