As an excellent option for men and women who want the look of dimples or who desire to enhance the look of their existing dimples, a dimpleplasty is performed under local anesthesia. Using an innovative technique, we offer a modified approach to the traditional dimpleplasty for more personalized treatments and results. In your initial consultation with Dr. Shah, he will identify how long, short, deep, or shallow you desire your dimples to be. He will then curate a customized procedure approach to allow for the best possible outcome specifically for you.
Performed under local anesthetic, a dimpleplasty is considered an outpatient procedure. In order to create the dimples, a tiny incision is made on the inside of the cheek and no cuts are made to the outside of the face. Once the incision has been made, a small part of the cheek muscle is removed and the remaining muscle is connected to the underside of the skin with a dissolvable suture. The dimple is created by the incision on the inside of the cheek, leaving an indentation. The entire procedure process only takes around 20 – 30 minutes to complete.

Dimple Creation FAQs
Does a dimpleplasty hurt?
Since the dimpleplasty procedure is performed with the use of a local anesthetic, you will not be able to feel anything during the surgery. Following the procedure and once the anesthetic wears off, you could experience some slight discomfort, and we suggest taking over-the-counter pain medication to ease any pain.
When can I expect to see results?
Initially, the dimples will be noticeable at all times; however, after about 1 – 3 months, the tissue will start to settle and the dimples will only be noticeable when you smile. The recovery period and results will vary from patient to patient, but we encourage you to contact our office if you have any questions or concerns during your recovery process.
Does it work?
Following a dimpleplasty procedure, the majority of individuals experience ideal results at around month three. In a few cases, patients may heal so well that the dimples may not be as noticeable as they were hoping to achieve. Typically, most patients are very pleased with their outcome; however, it's essential to have realistic expectations about what to expect.
Since the incisions for dimpleplasty are located inside the mouth, there will be no visible scarring. The majority of patients enjoy this benefit to the procedure and are amazed by how fast their incisions heal.
