Cheek Dimples/ Dimpleplasty surgery performed to create aesthetically pleasing dimples in the cheek. These are permanent dimples that can be static i.e. visible when the patient’s face is in neutral position. They can be also dynamic i.e. visible only when the patient smiles.
Prof Wilson performs the procedure under local or general anesthesia.
Cheek dimples can enhance your appearance and your self-esteem, and give your face a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently.
Women looking for improvement in the way they look and smile are the best candidates for Cheek Dimples/ Dimpleplasty surgery. Physically healthy women with realistic expectations and a reasonable desire to have cheek dimples are appropriate candidates.
A Cheek Dimple/ Dimpleplasty surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. This means you can get the procedure done at Dr Wilson’s office without having to go to the hospital. General Anesthesia might not be necessary.
First, Dr Wilson will apply a topical anesthetic,
He then uses a small biopsy instrument to make a hole in your skin to manually create a dimple. A small amount of muscle and fat is removed to aid in this creation. The area is about 2 to 3 millimeters in length.
Once Prof Wilson created the space for the future dimple, he then positions a suture (sling) from one side of the cheek muscle to the other. Afterwards, Prof Wilson ties the sling to set the dimple permanently in place.
This is a little bit more complicated and needs general anesthesia. Dr Wilson will cut inside the cheek and create a space in the muscle that is connected with the dimple. Thus the dimple will move with smiling.
It is relatively straightforward. You can usually go home immediately after the Cheek Dimple/ Dimpleplasty surgery. Soon after the procedure, you might experience mild swelling. You can apply cold packs to reduce swelling, but it will usually go away on its own within a few days.
