Creating dimples can be performed on any cheek(s).
Using local anesthesia, an incision(s) is made on the inside of your cheek(s). There is no scarring or incision made on the outside of the skin. An absorbable suture is used to set the dimples in place. As the suture is absorbed and the wound heals, the scar tissue between the inner skin and the muscle makes this procedure a permanent. The procedure takes about 30 minutes in the office.
You may experience mild soreness for about 2-3 days. You may take Tylenol to alleviate any pain or discomfort. You will also complete a 2-3 day course antibiotics. The dimples will look very apparent and prominent for about 4-6 weeks. The dimples will eventually look natural over a course period of time.
