The Procedure & Recovery

Nurturing Your Dimpled Smile

Dimple Creation involves a minimally invasive surgical procedure where a small incision is made on the inside of the cheek. This incision creates a connection between the skin and the underlying cheek muscle. This connection, or ‘dimple,’ is carefully crafted to appear natural and harmonious with the individual’s facial features.

In the days following Dimpleplasty, patients may experience mild swelling and discomfort, gradually subside. Adhering to postoperative care instructions ensures a smooth and comfortable recovery, allowing you to confidently flaunt your charming dimples.

While individual experiences may vary, the following outlines a general guide to Dimpleplasty recovery:

  • 1

    Care for Dimple Sites: Gentle oral hygiene is crucial during the initial recovery period. Patients are advised to avoid excessive mouth movements, and when brushing their teeth, they should be cautious around the dimple sites. Patients should also avoid applying direct pressure on the newly created dimples to prevent disruption of the healing process.
  • 2

    Dietary Considerations: A soft diet is recommended initially to minimise movement and stress on the facial muscles. Patients can gradually transition to a regular diet as directed by the surgeon. Patients should avoid using straws initially to prevent unnecessary movement around the dimple sites.
  • 3

    Avoidance of Strenuous Activities: Engaging in strenuous physical activities, such as heavy lifting or intense exercise, should be avoided during the first week of recovery to prevent strain on the facial muscles.
  • 4

    Scar Management: While Dimpleplasty typically results in minimal scarring, patients can discuss scar management options with their surgeon, such as using scar creams or silicone sheets.
  • 5

    Follow-up Appointments:: Patients should attend all scheduled follow-up appointments with their surgeon. These appointments allow the surgeon to monitor the healing progress, address concerns, and provide further guidance on postoperative care.

Dimpleplasty provides permanent results, as the created dimples are a lasting enhancement to your facial features. Over time, the dimples may appear more natural and settle into a seamless part of your facial expressions.

Dimpleplasty is a relatively low-pain procedure, typically performed under local anaesthesia. Patients may experience mild discomfort during the initial recovery period, which can be managed with prescribed medications.
  • Infection: While rare, there is a minimal risk of infection associated with any surgical procedure. Strict adherence to postoperative care minimises this risk.
  • Asymmetry: Achieving perfect symmetry is a challenging aspect of any cosmetic procedure. Skilled surgeons take utmost care to create dimples that appear balanced and natural.
  • Scarring: The incisions made during Dimpleplasty are small and strategically placed inside the cheek, minimising the risk of visible scarring.
