Dimpleplasty- The New Plastic Surgery Trend

3 min read

Dimpleplasty, is a minimally invasive procedure used to create dimples in the face, most commonly within the cheeks. Over the last few years, it’s become a common request among millennial-aged patients.

Not everyone has natural dimples, in Uganda, Singer Rema Namakula leads the list for those with a pair of cute natural Dimples which makes her really ridiculously good looking. The reason some people have dimples and others don’t is that they are born with a tight connection between the facial muscles and skin, while others just don’t have this kind of anatomy.” But, thanks to a quick outpatient procedure, that can change in just under half an hour.

The dimpling treatment is a finesse technique that requires a clear understanding of aesthetic goals between the patient and an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon. This takes about 30 minutes, depending on the patient’s anatomy, and involves creating an incision inside the patient’s mouth, “where a defect is created in the cheek muscle, known as the buccinators, the muscle is then attached to the undersurface of the skin so that the dimples are seen upon animation, but not when the face is relaxed.

Following Dimpleplasty, patients are left with semi-permanent dimples for about one to two months along with mild swelling and soreness. After that initial period, the tissue will eventually settle and the indention will only be seen when smiling. Although the treatment has little downtime there are still risks involved, which could lead to deformities that are incredibly difficult to correct. Dimples could also be overly dramatic, appear underwhelming, look unnatural, disappear with time, or even be located in the wrong place.

For those interested in chiseled cheeks à la Dimpleplasty, prices usually range between $800 and $2,500, depending on the level of difficulty.
