Dimples are small indentations that occur on the cheeks when you smile. Many people consider dimples an intricate part of a youthful looking face.
There is no doubt that dimples give your smile character. They are even considered good luck in certain parts of the world. Nonetheless, not all people are born with them. Dr. John Grossman is the only plastic surgeon in the state of Colorado who offers dimple creation surgery. This facial enhancement procedure is quick and effective, and can be used alone or in conjunction with other procedures to help you feel amazing about your appearance.
How a Dimple is Created
A natural dimple is actually a small defect in the cheek musculature that allows skin to depress when a person is smiling. To create a dimple, Dr. Grossman mimics this natural fold by making a small incision on the inside of your cheek and using absorbable sutures to hold your skin in a dimpled position. Because the incision is on the inside of your cheek there is no visible scarring. Once the sutures dissolve, your dimple will only appear when you smile.
There are a number of nerves in your face that can be impacted when incisions are made and special skills and experience are required to properly create a dimple. Dr. Grossman is a board-certified plastic surgeon with over three decades of experience. During your initial consultation he will be happy to discuss the risks and benefits of dimple creation in full.
