The procedure of Dimpleplasty is almost non-invasive, with minimal swelling occurring the first two to three weeks after surgery. The surgery itself only takes about 20-30 minutes.

The first step before undergoing this cosmetic procedure is a consultation with a qualified doctor. This is necessary to decide the optimal placement and depth of the dimples for the best natural-looking results. The most common suggestion for the ideal location is the meeting point of the horizontal line coming from the angle of the mouth and a 90 degree line coming from the outer conner of the eye. 

Shortly before surgery, the plastic surgeon puts the patient under local anesthesia to gently numb the area of operation. Once it has taken effect, a small incision, 2-3mm, from the inside of the mouth will be made. With the help of a needle and suture, the skin and the cheek muscles are fixed to form a sling. After forming the sling a knot is tied inside the mouth and the dimple is created. This technique shows no scarring as it is performed inside of the mouth.

Dimpleplasty Recovery

The recovery period is approximately 2 weeks. Within this time minor side effects may occur, such as a slight swelling around the operated area. However, patients are allowed to return to work or participate in other activities as early as 2 days after surgery. 

Dimples may be visible even without smiling during the first months of recovery but will progressively settle to look natural and only appear while smiling.

During the first days of the postoperative period, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene as infections could appear. Also, it is recommended to stay on a soft food diet and not to smile much since the dimples need to heal.
