Dimple Surgery (Dimpleplasty)

Dimple Surgery (Dimpleplasty)

This procedure is minimally invasive and done under local anesthetic. Typically, one incision, measuring approximately 2 centimeters (cm), is made for each dimple. Recovery is usually quick and simple. Ultimately, the permanent, new dimples are created by the scar tissue that develops as these small incisions heal.

Benefits of Dimpleplasty: 

While it is considered a cosmetic procedure, there are several benefits to having dimpleplasty:

  • This can improve facial characteristics as dimples are seen as a sign of youth and beauty in many cultures.
  • This is a non-invasive procedure that is carried out under local anesthetic and takes only 20 minutes to complete.
  • There is a very low risk of complications with this procedure.
  • It is customisable to the patient as they can choose their desired size and location of the dimples.

Ideal Candidate for Dimpleplasty: 

You must have a consultation with one of our doctors to ensure you are suitable for surgery.

Here are some factors that will be considered to see if you are a suitable candidate for surgery:

  • Our doctors and surgeons will take into account your medical history which includes any conditions or medications that may increase the risk of complications during or after the procedure.
  • It is important to have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure.
  • Although there isn’t an age limitation for dimpleplasty surgery, patients should have completed their facial growth and should be in good health.

Recovery Process: 

Your dimples will be visible immediately, though final results aren’t typically seen until two months afterward. The sutures used in this procedure don’t need to be removed and will dissolve on their own.
