Dimples on cheeks are considered ‘cute’ by many. The demand for surgically created dimples is increasing. This is a safe and effective surgery and is done under local anesthesia as a day care procedure. The results of it are permanent. It is equally effective in both men and women. Under local anesthesia, a small depression is created in the muscle of cheek region. This is done through the inside of the mouth without leaving any external scars. A natural dimple is usually formed when there is a small defect in the cheek musculature. After healing the skin overlying this small defect gets stuck down to the underlying connective tissue and creates a dimple in the skin with facial animation (smiling).
