It is possible to surgically create permanent dimples, and the surgical procedure to create dimples is called cheek dimple surgery. A natural dimple is usually formed when there is a small defect in the cheek musculature (most often the buccinator muscle). The skin overlying this small defect is stuck down to the underlying connective tissue and creates a dimple in the skin with facial animation (smiling).
Dimple creation surgery can be done on any type or size cheek. Dr. Rahul Goyal performs dimple creation surgery in his Chandigarh office.
