Dimple Creation Procedure
Cheek dimples are usually considered as an attractive feature of facial beauty. Unfortunately, not all beautiful girls have dimples. Literature on dimple creation surgery is sparse.
We used a new and simple technique for dimple creation, passing a transcutaneous bolster stitch after scraping off the dermis of all mucomuscular attachments. Our aim was to analyse the positive and negative findings of this technique.
We used this procedure in creation of 100 dimples under local anaesthesia as a daycare procedure and analysed the results.
This procedure is safe, reliable and easily reproducible. As no tissue is excised, chances of bleeding and haematoma formation are negligible. With this procedure, the patient satisfaction rate is very high, and patients seen long time after surgery continue to be pleased with their surgically created dimples.
