The bottoms of the cheeks are the most common location for them. Chin dimples are another attribute that some people have. This facial feature is not present at all.

Now let us understand the whole surgical procedures
A dimpleplasty is done as an outpatient procedure. This means you won't have to go to the hospital if your cosmetic surgeon can operate in his clinic. It is also likely that you won't need general anesthesia.
Our dermatologist in Vashi, Navi Mumbai, will first apply a topical anesthetic to your skin's affected region. It will help you to get relief from any pain or discomfort during the operation. The anesthetic medicine takes about 10 minutes to show the effects.
Then our doctor will use a small biopsy tool to make a hole in your skin manually. To perform this procedure, we extract a small muscle and fat from the area where you want the dimples.
Our doctor will place a suture (sling) from one side of the cheek muscle to the other after the hole is created. The sling is then attached to keep the dimple in the place completely.
Now that we have learned about the treatment procedure let us see how you will recover after the surgery.
Dimpleplasty is a reasonably easy operation, so the healing process is also easy. You can return to your home on the same day after the surgery is completed. Mild swelling can occur shortly after the procedure. Cold packs can help minimize swelling, but it usually goes away on its own after a few days. After a dimpleplasty, most people will return to work, school, and other daily activities in two days. After the operation, our surgeon would most likely want to see you a few weeks later to review the effects.
