Dimples used to be considered one of those endearing features that you were either blessed with, or you weren't.
We could only longingly admire the smiles of Cheryl Cole, Miranda Kerr and Bradley Cooper as that subtle indentation swept across their face. However, now, thanks to the talent and finesse of the world's top cosmetic surgeons - dimples are finally within reach.
Dimple Creation - medically referred to as Dimpleplasty - is a minimally invasive procedure which involves making a small incision in the mouth and manipulating the underlying muscles. This may involve stitching or shortening the muscles of the cheek, fastening them into a position which allows them to respond to particular movements of the face - i.e. smiling. Some patients also choose to pair this procedure with carefully-placed Dermal Filler to optimise the youthful plumpness of the cheeks simultaneously.
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
Dimples are typically the result of the facial muscle known as the 'zygomaticus major' tugging down against the plump, fatty tissue of the cheeks. This is what gives them their association with youth.
Dimpleplasty is, of course, purely cosmetic and many that are in pursuit of a very particular aesthetic might opt to embark upon Dimpleplasty as it is known for remarkably softening a face, as well as adding the appearance of youthful plumpness and volume. In actual fact, may patients report back after noticing an undeniable improvement to facial warmth and approachability.
Dimples are indentations on one or either side of the cheeks. Despite actually being a muscle imperfection, they are commonly associated with youth and beauty. They occur primarily when a muscle at the corner of the mouth, called the zygomaticus major, is naturally separated into two strands of muscles in the face.
Because one strand of the muscle is located at the corner of the mouth, and the other is fastened to the tissue just below, when we smile and these muscles are flexed, a dent is created. This effectively allows the fatty tissue of the face to push back against the surface of the skin, whilst the muscle remains attached to the underlying tissue.
Dimpleplasties are popular as they can fabricate the look of this occuring naturally. This is achieved by making incisions inside the mouth which create small depressions on the outside of the cheeks. Impressively, this treatment leaves no external scarring, and is ideal for enhancing facial attractiveness and drawing attention to the smile.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
Typically this procedure is quite prescriptive and works by mimicking the look of very specific muscle movement beneath the fatty tissue of the cheeks.
Patients are first injected with local anesthesia on the inside of the cheek(s), numbing the inside of the mouth. Following this, small, symmetrical incisions are made in the buccinator muscle on both sides. Once this has been done, the zygomaticus major is removed and the inside of the cheek skin is then stitched using dissolvable stitches.
Dimples are known to soften a face, and are a hallmark of the 'cute' aesthetic due to our association with youthful plumpness. They have also been psychologically linked to appearing more attractive to potential mates as they draw a person's eyeline down towards the mouth. Dimpleplasty is the most efficient and longlasting way to create these indentations.
Some attempt to recreate the look of dimples using strategic placement of piercings. This, however, can lead to visible scarring of the cheeks, rejection, and sometimes erosion of the teeth from repeated contact with facial jewellery. Dimpleplasty is both quick and easy to perform, and leaves no visible scarring on the outer cheeks. This results in perfectly natural-looking dimples that will stand the test of time.
Results of Dimpleplasty are permanent.
Please do note, however, that in rare situations, stitches can break during the early healing process and revision treatment may be necessary.
Dimpleplasty is quick and simple; typically treatment can be performed in as little as one hour or less.
Side-effects are common place with any procedure, and Dimpleplasty is no different. During recovery, you will likely experience some redness, swelling, tenderness and brusing. Please be assured that these symptoms are all shortlived, and will clear up over the course of the few weeks following treatment.
Because of the simplicity of the procedure, recovery typically takes only a few days, although patients should allow up to 2-3 weeks for the skin to smooth out following the stitching.
Patients can usually expect to return to work after 2 days, however, light activities are advised until fully recovered.
