What is a Dimpleplasty?

Dimples are often a sought after facial feature because of the uniqueness it brings to the face. In many cultures, they are even believed to be a sign of good fortune. Dimples are a natural indentation in the face that occur when there is a defect or gap in the facial muscles at birth. While common, many people who are not born with dimples strongly desire them.  Cheek dimple creation procedure called dimpleplasty is quickly becoming one of the most desired cosmetic procedure.

Dimpleplasty and Dimple Creation



Using the latest advances in medicine, Atlanta Surgical Arts offers this procedure with little to no pain and a quick recovery period. This minimally invasive procedure can be performed on the cheeks or the chin to create the desired dimples.

Dr. Huynh performs this procedure by applying a local anesthetic to the area and passes a suture through the inside of the cheek, or bottom lip for a chin dimple, catching the under surface of the skin. He then ties that suture to gently pull the skin in and allows it to heal. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and typically leaves no outer scar on skin.  Patients who have thicker muscle and fat in the cheek may require additional surgery to reduce tissue bulk in order to have longer lasting dimples.

The recovery for this procedure is simple and should have you back to your daily routine in the same day. The sutures will naturally dissolve within two weeks. The final result of your new, natural looking dimple will take anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks in order for the dimples to relax and appear more natural. Once the cheek tissue and muscles adjust to their new formation, you’ll enjoy natural looking dimples.
