Dimple creation is not a new idea. Back in 1936 the “Dimple Machine” was invented with a belief that if you caused prolonged pressure in an area then it would result in dimple formation.
What is a Dimple?
A Dimple is a small depression in the skin. On the face it is present due to a small gap in the zygomaticus major muscle. When we smile this gap presents as an indentation. Dimples in the cheek give a cute, sweet, feminine appearance and that is why many ladies who do not have dimples in the cheek want one creating.
For many years people have tried to make dimples. The above-illustrated “Dimple Machine” was invented with a belief that if you caused prolonged pressure in an area then it would result in dimple formation. Of course it didn’t work.
Surgical dimple creation
Surgical dimple creation is a technique developed in the last 10-15 years. The basic principle is that the overlying skin of the cheek is sutured to the underlying mucosa of the cheek causing an indentation. Mr Irfan Khan carries out this operation under local anesthesia at Sthetix Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in Liverpool. In order to simulate nature and to make the new dimple as natural as possible, Mr Khan removes a part of the muscle and creates a gap in it. The operation is carried out from inside the mouth so there is no scar on the cheek. Patients are very pleased to have this procedure done.
This is a surgical procedure and Mr Khan will discuss the benefits, risks, complications and limitations of this operation during your consultation.
