How to Get Natural-Looking Results From a Dimple Creation Surgery

How to Get Natural-Looking Results From a Dimple Creation Surgery

Dimples have long been signifiers of beauty, happiness, luck and youth. They enhance a smile, making it seem much more genuine than it otherwise might be. However, the problem is that they only occur naturally and only in 20% of the human population. Luckily, if you are part of the remaining 80% vying for dimples of your own, dimple creation surgery or dimpleplasty is here for you!

Dimples happen due to a defect in your cheek musculature. The defect is called Zygomaticus Major and involves the overlying skin getting wedged into the connective tissue, creating the dimple. Since this is a harmless defect, dimples have accrued several other meanings. Therefore, many people opt for dimpleplasty today to mimic the defect turned beauty.

The Many Benefits of Dimple Creation Surgery

This short procedure gives you complete control over your results. The entire procedure only takes about 30 minutes, with you deciding the dimple’s placement and depth beforehand. Having such control over the outcome makes many patients feel more secure in their decision.

Additionally, although a surgical procedure, dimpleplasty leaves no scars behind. While we will discuss this further in the procedure section, this is an important aspect that pushes many patients towards the procedure. Whether you get dimples on one or both sides of your face, rest assured you will have no visible scarring. On the contrary, you get entirely symmetrical and scar-free results under an expert surgeon.

Is there anything dimple creation surgery cannot do?

While this is a highly versatile procedure, you should only get it if you are sure this is what you want. While dimpleplasty may be reversed in certain patients, it causes additional trauma to your face, and can even result in scarring.

You should also remember that you cannot change your entire appearance with dimpleplasty. The goal with any cosmetic procedure is to work with your body’s natural contours for natural-looking results. As long as you choose an expert surgeon, these are the results you will get. However, if you think getting dimples will make you look like someone else, you are mistaken. This should also not be your goal – you are beautiful exactly as you are; dimples simply enhance your natural beauty.

With a gold-medallist female plastic surgeon like Dr Priya Bansal, you understand this procedure’s benefits and negligible limitations. Having someone with her expertise do your surgery is essential for ideal results. You also get a surgeon who is completely honest with you and listens to your needs in the process. This means that they can also tell you if you have unrealistic expectations.

A surgeon with a keen understanding of facial aesthetics is necessary for dimpleplasty. Having a well-equipped centre and following international standards of patient care are, of course, added bonuses. Choosing such a high-quality treatment promises far better results after your dimple creation.

How to Get Your Ideal Dimples with Dimple Creation Surgery

When you consult an expert before your procedure, they will give you certain pre-op instructions to start your treatment path. These generally include blood tests, medication prescriptions, and asking you to stop smoking. On the day of your dimpleplasty, you will also need to arrange for someone to drive you home since you cannot drive while the anaesthesia wears off.

Before your dimple creation procedure, your surgeon will also discuss the kinds of dimples you want. There are three main kinds of dimples you can opt for:

  • Long dimples, creating a cuter, softer look while still managing to appear mature and sexy.
  • Indian dimples, creating a deceptively innocent look.
  • Dimples at your mouth corners, creating a simultaneously prim but precocious, cute and soft look.

Once you know what dimples you want based on what would look best, you can go for your surgery.

Remember when we mentioned that the dimple creation procedure is completely scar-free? That is the case because the first step is to make the incision to access the underlying cheek musculature inside the cheek. Your surgeon goes through your mouth to the inner cheek and makes an incision.

They then pass a suture through this incision, connecting the skin and muscle. They place the suture and tighten it based on the dimple location and depth desired. If you want a deeper, more enhanced dimple, your surgeon may also remove a portion of soft tissue from inside your cheek.

The sutures used in this procedure are absorbable, i.e. dissolvable. This means that you do not need to revisit your surgeon through follow-up consultations to remove the stitches. Instead, they heal over time, on their own, and you experience a comfortable, quick recovery after this equally comfortable and quick procedure.

What do dimples look like after dimple creation surgery?

Given the advanced zero-scarring technique and complete customisability of this procedure, recovery is very easy today. Dimpleplasty is an outpatient, daycare procedure, and you can go home the same day after your surgery.

You may have some initial swelling, bruising and discomfort for the first 24-48 hours. However, you can resume your daily life the day after surgery, and the swelling and bruising subside. Your surgeon will also prescribe certain antibiotics to aid recovery.

You may also experience some facial movement hindrance or impairment after dimple creation surgery. However, as long as you restrict strenuous activities and sleep with your head elevated for a few days, this should go away on its own.

The biggest challenge most patients face is the appearance of the dimples. It can take anywhere between a few days to months for your dimples to look completely natural. Initially, the dimples will be visible even when you are not smiling. However, as your body adjusts to the new muscle structure, the dimples settle in and look more natural over time.

You get much faster, better results with a gold-medallist female plastic surgeon in Gurgaon like Dr Priya Bansal.
