The procedure known as a “dimpleplasty” is done to make dimples on the cheeks. The indentations that some people’s smiles leave behind are called dimples. The bottoms of the cheeks are where they are most frequently found. Additionally, certain persons may have chin dimples.

This facial feature is not inherited by all people. Dimples can develop naturally in some people as a result of indentations in the dermis brought on by the deeper face muscles. Injury may result in others.

Dimples are viewed by some cultures as a symbol of beauty, good fortune, and even prosperity, regardless of their origins. The frequency of dimple procedures has considerably increased in recent years due to these alleged benefits.


An outpatient procedure is used to do a dimpleplasty. This indicates that you can have the surgery performed at Dr.Manwani’s office. Additionally, you might not require general anaesthesia.

A topical anaesthetic, such as lidocaine, will first be applied to the affected area of skin . This makes sure you don’t feel any pain or discomfort throughout the procedure. The anaesthetic starts working after around 10 minutes.

Then, in order to manually generate a dimple in your skin, Dr.Manwani makes a small biopsy hole in your skin using a biopsy tool. To facilitate production, a small quantity of muscle and fat are eliminated. The region measures two to three millimetres in length.

A suture (sling) is then placed from one side of the cheek muscle to the other after Dr.  Manwani has made room for the future dimple. The dimple is then securely fixed into position by tying the sling.



Dimpleplasty recovery is a fairly simple process. There’s no need for you to stay in the hospital. In fact, following surgery, you can usually return home right away. You can have little edoema right after the treatment. Although you can use cold packs to lessen the swelling, it normally goes away on its own in a few days.

Most people can resume their regular activities two days after having a dimpleplasty, including work, school, and other obligations. A few weeks following the surgery, Dr. Manwani will probably want to meet you to evaluate the results.



Choosing a surgeon with extensive proficiency in the field and multifaceted training is crucial to having a pleasant and rewarding surgical experience. As a pioneer in the field of plastic surgery, Dr. Manwani treats every dimpleplasty procedure with artistic rigour and considerate care, ensuring that patients receive the best possible cosmetic outcomes.


You’ll be able to leave our clinic after your dimpleplasty is finished and return to your regular routine at home. The dimples will be extremely noticeable for the first few weeks of your recuperation, but as you continue to get better and heal, they will progressively go away, and you will only be able to see them when you smile.

It is typical to experience some degree of moderate swelling in the first few days following surgery. Generally speaking, we suggest that you take a few days off from work or school to give your body the chance to unwind and heal properly.

The dimple-inducing procedure is completed as an outpatient procedure and only requires a brief amount of time. An entire dimple-making procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete. The technique is performed when the patient is sedated or not and under the effects of a local anaesthetic. The procedure is reasonably quick in our clinic because it is done on the inside of the cheek to create dimples and there are no visible scars or incisions on the skin’s surface on the outside of the cheek.

Dr. Manwani will provide you with guidance and details on the ideal placement as well as the level of depth you can anticipate experiencing throughout your appointment. The size and location of your cheek dimples will then be decided in conjunction with you.

The dimples will initially be noticeable all the time, but after one to three months, the tissue will start to settle and the dimples will only be noticeable when you smile. Since the length of time it takes to recuperate and the results it creates will vary from patient to patient, we strongly advise you to contact our office if you have any questions or concerns during this period.

The majority of individuals who undergo a dimpleplasty operation see their desired outcomes around the third month after the procedure. Some patients might heal so well that the dimples they intended to produce wouldn’t be as noticeable as they had anticipated they would be. Although the vast majority of patients are generally very pleased with the outcome of their treatment, it is still important to set realistic expectations for your procedure and be clear about your goals with Dr. Manwani during your consultation at our clinic.
