Dimpleplasty in Atlanta, GA, With Dr. Carson Huynh

Dimples are a desirable and attractive characteristic of any face. Some people are fortunate enough to inherit these sweet indentations from their family members, but today, you don’t need genetics to have dimples. A short surgical procedure can create natural-looking dimples, further defining the lower portion of your face and adding to your overall aesthetic.

Many people born without dimples want to brighten their smile and add more character to their overall features. Dr. C. Carson Huynh offers a simple surgical dimple creation procedure called dimpleplasty to create the presence of dimples without any external scarring. During your consultation, you’ll discuss exactly where dimples would compliment your facial features the best, how prominent you want your dimples to be, and what to expect from the procedure.

The History of Dimples

A dimple is a slight indentation in the skin on any part of the body, commonly found in the cheeks or chin. For centuries, dimples have played a role in our perception of beauty. In Asian culture, dimples signify attractiveness and integrity. In some traditional Asian folklore, dimples suggest good fortune and fertility. Westerners tend to view dimples as attractive and memorable facial attributes.

Dimples occur naturally on either side of the face and are generally present when someone is smiling. They result from a defect in the buccinator muscle of the cheek and an inherited split in the zygomaticus major facial muscle, which is responsible for raising the upper lip. During regular muscle contractions, this tiny defect causes the overlying skin to indent.

What Is a Dimpleplasty?

A dimpleplasty procedure surgically adds indentations to the facial muscles that mimic natural dimples or enhance the appearance of existing ones.

How Dr. Huynh Performs a Dimpleplasty Procedure

Dr. Huynh performs Atlanta dimpleplasty as an outpatient procedure in his state-of-the-art facility using local anesthesia with or without IV sedation. Before your dimpleplasty surgery, Dr. Huynh will meet with you to address any last-minute concerns and answer any questions you may have. Together, you will review and agree upon the surgical plan, confirming your new dimples’ ideal shape and location. Dr. Huynh will meticulously measure and mark your face to ensure accurate symmetry and surgical precision.

After administering the local anesthesia, Dr. Huynh uses a precise technique replicating how natural dimples form. He’ll carefully remove a small portion of your cheek muscle from inside your mouth, tethering the skin to the deeper facial tissues to create the signature indentations. Then, he closes the incisions with dissolvable sutures that do not require removal. The process requires anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to complete, and because your incisions will be inside your mouth, there’s no risk of visible scarring.

Why Should You Choose Dr. Huynh for Your Atlanta Dimpleplasty?

As a dual-certified plastic surgeon focusing solely on facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Huynh’s approach to dimpleplasty centers on his extensive knowledge of the intricacies of facial anatomy and advanced surgical techniques. His years of experience and cutting-edge methods create natural-looking results for all his patients.

When pursuing facial cosmetic surgery, it’s wise to choose a technical specialist who has your best interests at heart. When you work with Dr. Huynh, you can feel confident that he and his team will meet your every need with compassion, delivering results that exceed your expectations.

What to Expect From a Dimpleplasty Recovery

For the first week to 10 days after your dimpleplasty, you will experience some mild swelling and bruising. Your new dimples will appear deep for the first couple of weeks as the skin heals and settles into its new position. During this time, you can wear small circular bandages over the sutures to protect the incisions and promote healing. Please do not rub or scratch your cheeks while they heal. Dr. Huynh will provide you with a customized timeline and aftercare instructions, carefully walking you through what to expect before and after your procedure.

After two to three weeks, the sutures should dissolve, and the results will reveal your stunning new smile. In addition to having symmetrical dimples, your results may be even better enhanced when combined with buccal fat removal surgery for a slimmer look.. The results of your dimpleplasty are permanent and will likely never need a revision. With this straightforward procedure, patients generally experience minimal discomfort with a quick, smooth recovery.

What Is the Cost of an Atlanta Dimpleplasty Surgery?

At the time of your pre-operative consultation, Dr. Huynh and our financial department will inform you of the various aspects of dimpleplasty, including its estimated cost. Your total price tag will depend on multiple factors, including Dr. Huynh’s initial charges, the use of local IV sedation, surgical venue expenses, medical exams, consultations, and recommended prescription drugs. Dr. Huynh will explain the costs and all other aspects of the procedure to you in detail during your initial consultation.
