Facial Dimple Creations
Your face is important. It is the most immediate outlet for your emotions, expressing thoughts and reactions that are beyond words. It is usually the first thing others notice about you, profoundly influencing both how they perceive you and how you perceive yourself. Many people are generally pleased with their face, but for those who are not, their face can be the source of frustration and self-consciousness.
Dimples on cheeks are considered cute to many people. The demand for surgically created dimples is increasing. In general, this is a safe and effective surgery and is done under local anesthesia as a day care procedure. Results are permanent.
Under local anesthesia, a small depression is created in the muscle cheek region. This is done through the inside of the mouth without external scars. The depression might be permanent for two to three months after the surgery. You will have numbness in the cheek area for approximately one to two hours. You should rinse your mouth with lukewarm water after any meals and brush your teeth gently each time. You may use ice over the cheek area for the first 24 hours. You may experience some bruising and swelling which will resolve over the course of several days.
Oral hygiene is very important before and after surgery to help the healing and avoid infection.
Avoid heavy physical activities/exercise for 5 days.
