It used to be that if you didn’t have dimples when you smile, you never would. However, Dr. Kun Z. Kim at Kim Facial Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, Georgia offers a way for you to have dimples you’ve always wanted through dimple creation.
Dimple Creation Process
Creating dimples can be performed on any cheek(s). You and Dr. Kim can discuss the placement, depth, and length of your dimples when you come in for your consultation.
Using local anesthesia, Dr. Kim will make an incision(s) on the inside of your cheek(s). Typically, there is no scarring on the outside of the skin, but like with any procedure, there is always a risk. An absorbable suture is used to set the dimples in place. As the suture is absorbed and the wound heals, the scar tissue between the inner skin and the muscle makes this procedure permanent. The procedure takes about 20 minutes in the office. Most patients elect to have the procedure done the same day after the consultation.
You may experience mild soreness for about 2-3 days. You may take Tylenol to alleviate any pain or discomfort. You will also complete a 2-3 day course antibiotics. The dimples will look very apparent and prominent for about 2-4 months. The dimples will eventually look natural over a course period of time.
Dr. Kim is committed to combining your goals and realistic expectations with his skilled expertise for a safe and positive outcome. For more information about dimple creation or to schedule an appointment for a consultation, please call our office @ (770) 458-4255.
