Many people find the presence of a dimple when smiling an attractive feature. Some individuals naturally present dimples when they smile, while others wish that was the case. A surgical procedure exists whereby a person can have dimples where none existed previously. Before considering dimple creation surgery, an individual needs to understand some essential facts about the procedure.

The cost associated with dimple creation surgery varies not only by doctor but geographically as well. The average bill for the surgery is about $2,000 in the United States. Health insurance policies do not cover dimple creation surgery because it is done for cosmetic purposes only. Qunomedical partners has clinics worldwide. Some may offer special payment arrangements for patients. Others offer package deals that may include dimple creation surgery along with other revitalizing treatments.

How Does a Dimple Creation Procedure Work?

The creation of a dimple is an outpatient surgery undertaken in a clinic. The surgery requires only local anesthesia. The surgery typically takes between 10 to 20 minutes. No external incision is required on a person's cheek to create a dimple. Rather, a painless incision is made inside a person's cheek. A tiny absorbable suture is tied in the undersurface of the person's cheek, which results in the dimpling. Ultimately, the suture dissolves, leaving behind scar tissue which causes a dimple when a person smiles. Technically speaking, nearly anyone qualifies for dimple creation surgery. Some people will enjoy better results than others. A doctor can discuss the prospects for optimal results during an initial consultation with a patient.

Outpatient surgery, a person is able to return to work or most other routines after the placement of the suture. Immediately after the surgery, a dimple will always be present in a person's cheek. This begins to dissipate. Usually after a few days, the dimples appear only when smiling. Sometimes this process takes a bit longer. Infection is possible after any surgery. A person is prescribed antibiotics for a short period of time following the surgery to lessen the chances of infection. Most people experience little to no pain associated with the surgery itself and following the insertion of the suture as well. As a general rule, there are no eating or drinking restrictions following surgery. A patient returns for a follow-up checkup about two weeks following surgery.
