You are a good candidate for dimple surgery if it is important for you to have a dimple on one or both cheeks if your general health is suitable for undergoing surgery, and if you follow the doctor's instructions carefully.


How long should you stay in the hospital after the surgery? 

Overnight stay not required


Half an hour


Patients should avoidsmoking, Aspirin, or Ibuprofen, herbal supplements, and fish oils two weeks prior to their dimple surgery. 


After the local anesthesia is applied, doctors use a small biopsy instrument on cheeks to manually create a dimple. A small amount of muscle and fat is removed from the hole created. The area is about 2 to 3 millimeters in length. Once the surgeons create the dimple, then positions a suture from one side of the cheek muscle to the other. The suture is then tied to set the dimple permanently in place.


After the procedure, patients may have mild swelling, and they can apply cold packs to reduce swelling, but it will usually go away on its own within a few days. Most of the patients can return to work and other daily activities two days after a dimple surgery.
