(Facial dimple, Cheek dimple)
By definition a dimple is a small natural indentation in the flesh on a part of the human body, especially in the cheek or on the chin.Dimple creation is a cosmetic surgery procedure to create facial dimple.
Everybody knows what a dimple is. Although by definition, any dent on the cheek could be called a dimple, a cute desirable dimple is one which appears on smiling and makes the smile carry lot more happiness!
A dimple is anatomically an abnormal attachment of the smile muscle (zygomaticus) to the cheek skin, which pulls that part of the cheek when smiling.
Facial dimple can be created by cosmetic surgery by creating a connection between the muscle and the skin in the area selected. This is called as dimple creation surgery and is a straight forward procedure performed as a day care cosmetic surgery. Dimple creation is performed by making a small incision on the inside of the cheek, so there are no visible scars. Dimple creation is a relatively safe surgery when performed by an experienced cosmetic surgeon.
The surgically created dimples will take some time to look natural about 3-4 weeks. After this time, the dimple will appear only when smiling. The demand for dimple creation is increasing in India and is performed on a regular basis in Cochin at the Lakeshore cosmetic surgery centre.
