A lot of people yearn to have cheek dimples, because they believe it adds value to the facial beauty, as an attractive feature. Cheek dimples may be expressed unilaterally or bilaterally and are usually genetically inherited. With Dimple Creation Surgery or Dimpleplasty, cheek dimples are artificially created.
Natural dimples are formed due to faulty cheek musculature. Anatomically, dimples are thought to be caused by a double or bifid zygomaticus major muscle. When the muscle’s fascial strands insert into the dermis, it causes a dermal tethering effect causing cheek dimples.
