What Happens in Dimple Creation Surgery?

You are asked to come to the hospital at least 2 hours before the time slot allotted for surgery. Usually the dimple creation procedure is done under local anaesthesia.
It essential to come on an empty stomach if your procedure is planned under sedation or GA.

You will be given time immediately before the surgery to discuss any last minute doubts with the surgeon. The surgeon, along with you, will mark the location of your new dimples with an aesthetic analysis in front of a mirror. Once you are ready, you will be taken to the operation theater.

The procedure is performed under local anesthetic by completely numbing the area. There is no pain. A small incision is placed inside the mouth to release the muscles. A suture is then applied across the cheek .This suture is left in place for a week. A small dressing is done at the end of the procedure.

After the surgery, the effect of local anesthetic and analgesics used at the time of surgery gradually wear off. As soon as the patient stars to perceive pain Pain-killers are administered for up to 5 to 10 days depending upon patient’s pain tolerance.

When will I see the results?

The suture is removed after a week. You will appreciate the result immediately. Tissue healing takes 1 to 2 weeks. There will be mild swelling and redness for a week or two.

Complete tissue healing and remodeling takes around 4-6 months.

How long will the dimples last?

The dimple created by the surgery will be significant in nature. Rarely, if the suture breaks during the immediate healing process, the dimple may result in being shallow or could disappear completely; however the later is very rare.
