Nowadays, surgeries are performed not only for health reasons, but also to give a new look to the areas that do not correspond to the aesthetic sensibility of the person and that he/she wants to change.
Dimples are often seen on the cheeks, but they can also appear on other parts of the body such as the chin or waist. They are caused by the drooping of dead cells in these areas. While many people have dimples from birth, it is now possible to get dimples later in life through dimple aesthetics.
What is Dimple Esthetics and Why is it Popular?
Dimple esthetics is a cosmetic surgery that aims to create natural-looking indentations in various parts of the face or body. It is often desired by people who do not have dimples because it has an attractive and cute effect on the face.
The dimples created by the procedure soften the facial features and increase the symmetry of the face. They add emphasis and personality to the facial expression. In recent years, people have had the desire to highlight the dimples on their bodies, especially on social media platforms by sharing photos and videos. This is why the dimple esthetic has become so popular.
Dimple Aesthetic Surgery: How Is It Performed?
After the area where the dimple is to be created is determined by the patient and surgeon, the patient is locally anesthetized or sedated prior to the procedure. This ensures that the area is anesthetized during the procedure and pain is kept to a minimum. The duration of this procedure, which takes between 15 minutes and one hour, varies from person to person and depends on the area where the dimple is to be created.
In cheek dimple esthetics, the surgeon makes a small incision inside the cheek and creates a gap by reducing the tissue in that area. To achieve a natural-looking dimple, the surgeon performs a facial expression test and attempts to create a natural-looking depression that matches your face and smile. After the desired result is achieved, the incision is sutured and the surgery is complete.
Venus dimples, also known as waist dimples, are produced by a reduction of subcutaneous tissue. An incision is made under the skin and the tissue is reduced before the open area is carefully sutured. A dressing is applied to the surgical area.
Venus dimples are usually created on both sides, while dimples on the face are created singly or doubly, depending on the patient’s preference.
Who can have a Dimple Surgery?
Dimple surgery is a procedure that can be performed on anyone who has reached the age of 18. It is not recommended to perform the procedure on patients under 18 years of age, as their facial features are not fully mature. Also, there should be no health problems that would prevent the procedure. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should avoid this type of procedure. If you are currently losing weight, it is also advisable to postpone the procedure. The position of the dimple may change during the weight loss process and you may not be satisfied with the result.
Dimple Surgery Procedure: Post-Operation and Recovery Period
Mild pain, swelling, and bruising after cheek dimple surgery are normal. This should not worry the patient. These effects may be seen for a few days. The pain can usually be controlled with pain medications recommended by your doctor. Patients can rest for 1 or 2 days and then go about their daily activities, such as work and daily living.
After surgery, the face should be rested as much as possible. It is recommended to avoid contact with water on the face for the first 24 hours. You should eat soft foods and avoid any activities that may put stress on the face.
Swelling may occur after a Venus dimple surgery. These disappear by themselves in a short time. You will have to wear a special corset for 4-6 weeks after the surgery.
It is recommended to avoid swimming and sauna for at least 1 week after the cosmetic surgery. Not exercising for a few weeks can help the healing process. In addition, it is important for the healing of the skin to avoid alcohol and tobacco.
Is Dimple Aesthetics Permanent? How Long Do the Results Last?
The aesthetic treatment of dimples is permanent, but the appearance of dimples may fade somewhat due to weight changes, aging, skin changes or plump cheeks. In such cases, the procedure can be repeated and undesirable results can be corrected.
The procedure performed as part of the waist dimple aesthetics is a thinning of the fatty tissue, which is known to produce largely permanent results. Even after weight fluctuations, the appearance of the dimple is maintained and does not need to be operated on again.
It is recommended to have a detailed conversation with the doctor before the procedure to find out about the permanence of the result.
What Are the Risks of Dimple Aesthetics?
Like any cosmetic surgery, aesthetic surgery of dimples has some risks. There is a risk of infection and bleeding due to the procedure in this area. As with any surgical procedure, there is also a risk of complications if local anaesthesia is used during the procedure. If the procedure is not performed by professionals, problems such as muscle and nerve damage can occur in the surgical area. For these reasons, the entire procedure should be performed by professionals.
