Dimple Creation Surgery in Nashik
Cheek dimples are an attractive feature of facial beauty. Unfortunately, not all beautiful faces have dimples.
Dimples on cheeks enhance facial beauty and expression. They occur in both sexes with no particular preponderance, may express on one or both sides and are genetically inherited. Structurally, dimples are thought to be caused by a double or bifid zygomaticus major muscle ( a Muscle responsible for facial expression), whose fascial fibers insert into the dermis and cause a dermal tethering effect.
Dimples can be created surgically. It is a day care procedure done under Local Anaesthesia.
Generally, the position of the dimple is marked by the patient in front of the mirror. If the patient is undecided as to the site of the dimple, Dr Nerkar Uses certain facial landmarks to decide the location for an “ideal dimple”. Once local anaesthetic is administered, the procedure is done from within mouth (leaving no scars on cheek). You can go home after an hour.Meticulous oral hygiene with mouthwash and oral rinse is advised.
The sutures (used on inner aspect) are removed after a week. Initially, there is a static dimple which deepens with facial animation, but gradually with time there is only a hint of dimple when static and accentuates on animation.
How do I prepare?
When considering dimpleplasty, you’ll want to find an experienced surgeon. Some dermatologists are trained for this type of surgery, but you may need to see a facial plastic surgeon instead.
Once you’ve found a reputable surgeon, make an initial appointment with them. Here, you can discuss the risks versus benefits of dimple surgery. They can also determine whether you’re a good candidate for plastic surgery. Finally, you’ll figure out where the dimples should be placed.
The cost of dimpleplasty varies, and it isn’t covered by medical insurance. On average, people spend about 25000 to 35000 on this procedure. If any complications occur, you can expect the overall cost to increase.
A dimpleplasty is performed on an outpatient basis. This means you can get the procedure done at your surgeon’s office without having to go to the hospital. You may also not need to be put under general anesthesia.
First, your doctor will apply a topical anesthetic, such as lidocaine, to the area of skin. This helps to ensure you don’t experience any pain or discomfort during the surgery. It takes about 10 minutes for the anesthetic to take effect.
Your doctor then uses a small biopsy instrument to make a hole in your skin to manually create a dimple. A small amount of muscle and fat is removed to aid in this creation. The area is about 2 to 3 millimeters in length.
Once your doctor creates the space for the future dimple, they then position a suture (sling) from one side of the cheek muscle to the other. The sling is then tied to set the dimple permanently in place.
Recovery from dimpleplasty is relatively straightforward. You don’t need to stay in the hospital. In fact, you can usually go home immediately after the surgery. Soon after the procedure, you might experience mild swelling. You can apply cold packs to reduce swelling, but it will usually go away on its own within a few days.
Most people can return to work, school, and other regular activities two days after having a dimpleplasty. Your surgeon will likely want to see you a couple of weeks after the procedure to assess the results.
If you experience excessive bleeding or oozing at the site of the procedure, see your doctor right away. You could have an infection. The earlier the infection is treated, the less likely it will spread to the bloodstream and cause further complications.
Scarring is a rare but certainly undesirable side effect of a dimpleplasty. There’s also a chance that you won’t like the results once they’re done. It’s difficult to reverse the effects of this type of surgery, however.
