"My Muscle Wall Gave Way Giving my Abdomen an Unsightly Large Buldge - Denver, CO - I met Dr Shah in 2007 when he did a face lift for me. I was really happy with the results. When I found out no amount of diet and exercise would remedy the problem with my abdomen I contacted him. and even through I no longer live in Colorado, I knew he was the doctor I wanted to perform my surgery.I am a little over four weeks after surgery and I am thrilled with the results. I am 66 years old and healing well and now I have the tummy I have dreamed of having.Thank you Dr Shah I appreciate your skill and care!"- D. / RealSelf / Sep 05, 2015
"23 Year Old BBL Amid COVID - This site has been so helpful to me in conducting my research about a BBL. Once I decided on it, this site also helped me to find a doctor with results I liked! I had the surgery for a BBL (with tummy lipo) and neck lipo on June 12, 2020 and it's currently 9 days post-op. There will be more attachments to this review (including pictures), but I wanted to get the baseline set up. The reason I wanted to go through with this was because I saw women on here in their 40s who said they wish they did it sooner and that made me feel motivated to follow my dreams. I have never been embarrassed of my body, and I don't think I had a bad body. This surgery was just a way for me to enhance my body in a way I knew I would love. I do workout and eat healthy (this means healthy and not extreme dieting), but these are the kind of results I couldn't get at the gym. I am very happy with my decision and there will be more updates to come!"- W. / RealSelf / Jun 21, 2020
"The surgery was a breeze and the recovery was easy - I got a rhinoplasty with Dr. Shah about two years ago. From the beginning until now I've had a great experience. Both he and his staff are caring and helpful, I never felt in the dark about anything along this journey. In addition, they never pushed me to get other procedures that I wasn't interested in. The surgery was a breeze and the recovery was easy - I did the whole recovery with Ibuprofen with minimal pain. I am very happy with my results and feel much more confident in my body. I would absolutely suggest Dr. Shah to anybody looking for plastic surgery and would return to him if I decided to have more done."- D. / RealSelf / Jun 01, 2020

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.
