Dimples in the cheeks are generally considered a sign of cuteness and can enhance your overall facial appearance. This highly desirable trait has long been coveted by many men and women, but until recently the only way to get dimples was to be born with them. Fortunately, you can now achieve a beautiful, dimpled look with facial plastic surgery.
Grossman Plastic Surgery offers dimple creation surgery to patients in the Denver area. Dr. Grossman is the only plastic surgeon in the state of Colorado who performs this procedure, and he consistently achieves exceptional results that will allow you to flash your new dimpled smile with confidence.

What Is a Dimple?
When formed naturally, a dimple is actually caused by a small defect in your facial muscles. This defect causes your skin to become connected to your deep facial muscles. As a result, the skin is pulled in when these muscles contract as you smile, creating the appearance of a dimple.
Recent innovations in facial plastic surgery now make it possible to create this effect by performing a simple, straightforward surgical procedure.
Dimple Creation Procedure
Dimple creation surgery is a quick, painless procedure that is performed on an outpatient basis. Dimples can be created on any type or size cheek, making just about everyone a candidate for the procedure. You have the ability to decide where you would like your dimples to be. But if you prefer, Dr. Grossman will recommend the location on your cheek that will deliver the best aesthetic result.
Dr. Grossman will make a tiny incision on the inside of your cheek. Since an internal incision is used, there is no visible scarring after your procedure. An absorbable suture is tied at the incision location to create the dimple. Once the suture is absorbed and your cheek heals, the scar tissue between the inner skin and the underlying facial muscle will create a permanent dimple.
Recovery after Dimple Creation Surgery
Recovery after dimple creation surgery is relatively minimal. You can start eating soft foods several hours after surgery, and you will most likely be able to resume normal activities the next morning. In most cases, you should be able to return to work one to two days after surgery.
During the healing process, your new dimples may be visible at all times. However, after a few weeks, your dimples will only be present when you smile.
