Dimples are those tiny indentations on your cheeks that most often appear when you are smiling. Although they may occur singly, they often form in pairs, making you appear happy and light-hearted. If you do not have dimples, you may have looked at those who do have them with envy, thinking that there is no way you will ever be able to enjoy them. However, you may be surprised to learn that a simple cosmetic surgery can get you the look you have long wanted.
Why Do Some People Have Dimples?
Dimples are created by a special formation of a muscle in your cheeks known as the zygomaticus major. Not only does this muscle turn on your smile, but also it can form dimples if the muscle separates into two bundles on the way to the corners of your mouth.
Do Dimples Improve Your Beauty?
Although many people have varying opinions about dimples and beauty in general, the majority of people find the presence of dimples on the cheeks to be attractive. In fact, in some cultures, dimples are seen to be a sign of good luck. One way or the other, most people say that dimples improve the look of youthfulness.
Do You Have to Be Born with Dimples?
If you were not born with dimples and never developed them as a child, you can still enjoy this great body trait thanks to today’s dimpleplasty cosmetic surgeries. This is a quick, simple procedure done as an outpatient surgery. In fact, you will not even need general anesthesia for the procedure because the surgeon will only need to create a small hole in your skin to allow him to remove enough muscle and fat from the area to create the dimple. Finally, a suture holds the muscle in its new location.
