How We Create Beautiful Dimples

Dimples are natural adhesions that occur between the skin and deep muscles. When we smile and contract the muscles, the skin is pulled in, creating a dimple. Most cheek dimples are not present at rest.

While not everyone naturally has dimples, many of us wish we did. Fortunately, they can be created surgically. The cosmetic process for dimple creation is called a dimpleplasty. When Dr. Madjidi performs this procedure, she inserts a dissolvable suture into a patient's cheek and ties the suture to create a permanent dimple.

The Step-by-Step Process of Dimple Creation

A dimpleplasty is a quick procedure that can be done in under an hour with minimal downtime.

During a consultation for dimple creation surgery, Dr. Madjidi will review the details of a dimpleplasty with you and determine if you are a candidate. If you both agree to move forward with the procedure, she will provide all the information you need for the day of your surgery.


A dimpleplasty is performed in-office, using a local anesthetic to make the procedure virtually painless. With local anesthesia, you will remain conscious and able to communicate with the doctor throughout your dimple creation surgery and can drive yourself home afterward.

Determining Depth and Location

It takes Dr. Madjidi 20 minutes to perform a dimpleplasty. The first step of the procedure involves the doctor determining the depth and placement of your new dimples and marking the facial location.

Creating the Dimple

A small incision is made on the inside of your cheek. Since the procedure is performed internally, this incision causes no visible scar on the outer skin. A small absorbable suture is passed through the inside of the cheek, creating the dimple where it is desired.

After the suture is absorbed, the scarring at the surgical site causes a permanent dimple to remain. 

Simple Aftercare

Dimpleplasty is a popular procedure, and it requires minimal downtime. You should be able to resume your normal activities the following day. However, you may need to avoid strain for several days, and you should choose to eat foods that won't disturb the incision site inside your cheek.

Talk to a Board-Certified Surgeon

Who Speaks Several Languages

Board certification denotes that a surgeon has gone above and beyond in proving their ethics, knowledge, and skill. Dr. Madjidi earned this great honor from the American Board of Plastic Surgery by passing a 300-question written examination, a rigorous oral evaluation, and providing a case list of at least 50 major operations she performed. 

Our plastic surgeon prides herself on providing cosmetic enhancements to Houston's vibrant, diverse community. She speaks seven different languages – English, Persian, French, Spanish, Arabic, Italian, and Hungarian. If you want surgery from a board-certified expert who can build a trusting relationship in your preferred language, all you have to do is reach out.

This Houston Patient Says Dr. Madjidi Makes Magic Happen

"Dr. Madjidi is a magician! She gets you in and out with minimal to no discomfort! She really cares about her patients and makes sure you feel taken care of. Highly recommend!"

The Permanent Results of Dimpleplasty Are Apparent Within Months

After your dimpleplasty, you will immediately notice your facial enhancement. Just a few days later, redness and swelling should subside and you can return to a normal diet. The final, stunning results of your dimpleplasty should be totally evident within two months. 

A Closer Look At Candidacy

Dimpleplasty is a relatively straightforward procedure that can be performed for virtually anyone in good overall health. However, the presence of certain issues may disqualify certain patients. These include oral infections, blood clotting disorders, and diabetes.

Furthermore, you should know that if you are a smoker, you must be able to quit smoking for approximately one month before and after your procedure. Dr. Madjidi will evaluate your candidacy personally to make sure it is safe to move forward with your personalized dimple creation. If you smoke, why not take this opportunity to break the habit as you begin a new chapter of life with a beautifully enhanced visage and smile?

Frequently Asked Dimpleplasty Questions Answered by Our Facial Surgery Expert

When Will I Notice My New Dimple?

Patients can see the dimpling that occurs from this plastic surgery right away. The dimple will be present at first, even when the face is resting. After several days or weeks, the dimple will be present only while smiling or moving the face, just as a natural dimple would appear.

Can Anyone Have a Dimpleplasty?

Patients must be in good health to undergo the surgical process, but in terms of cheek type and size, virtually any adult is a dimple creation candidate. 

Is a Dimpleplasty Reversible?

The great benefit of dimple creation surgery is that it can be reversible. A small reversal procedure can remove the dimples by releasing the skin.

Can You Create a Chin Dimple?

Yes. A dimpleplasty is most commonly performed on cheeks, but it can also be performed to create a chin dimple.
