What is Dimple and Dimple Aesthetics?

What is Dimple?

Dimple is the name given to the light pits that occur on the cheek during laughing, which can be unilateral or bilateral, coinciding with the edge of the lip. Dimple is one of the important symbols of beauty in men and women. From past to present, people with dimples have been accepted as having extra physical beauty and evaluated in this way.

 What is Dimple Aesthetics?

Dimple Aesthetics is an aesthetic operation developed for people who do not have a congenital dimple-like appearance and give an aesthetic appearance to the face.

This operation, also known as dimpleplasty, is a surgical intervention applied to create a dimple appearance in the area desired by the person.

It is generally preferred by people who think that the dimple appearance on the skin creates a more attractive and sweet appearance.

It can be applied in many different tones according to the patient’s request. However, the common area of ​​use is the cheek.

What Causes Dimples on The Cheek?

A dimple on the cheek occurs when the muscle is pulled towards the mucosa or the absence of fat tissue in this area. In addition, congenital anomaly of the muscle called zigamaticus is one of the most common causes of dimple formation.

This physical beauty, which can exist from birth, can also be made later as a result of various processes. With dimple aesthetic surgery, you can have an appearance as if you have a congenital dimple.

Dimple aesthetic application is created by adapting the laughing muscle to the mucous membrane in the mouth, and sometimes by removing some muscle and fat tissue from this area if necessary.

Especially the interest in dimple has increased considerably in recent years. Although dimples are primarily on the cheeks in areas such as the chin and waist, almost everyone wants it.

However, since dimples are a congenital muscle disease, not everyone can have dimples without effort.

Is Bichectomy and Dimple Aesthetics The Same?

Although dimple surgery and bichectomy are performed from the same area, they are completely different procedures. Bichectomy operation is the removal of bichat adipose tissue from the inside of the cheek and obtaining a sunken line on the cheeks.

Who Can Have Dimple Surgery?
