Permanent scar: This is done by creating a permanent indented scar at the desired location of the dimple. Unlike a natural simple it may be present at rest. Yes it can be performed after a face lift.

A suture: Creating dimples requires a small incision inside of the cheek, creating a small defect in the cheek muscle and suturing the skin to the inside of the cheek. At first, there is a dimple even at rest and as the suture dissolves, it creates a scar which pulls the skin back with the smile. Thus creating a dimple. Th ethinner the cheek, the better the result. You could do it after a facelift.

Possible, but...: A surgically-created dimple is present all the time - unlike a natural dimple that only appears when the patient smiles. Although it would be possible you for to have this done, using a suture technique, i'm personally not a fan.

SImple procedure: The procedure is simple and popular. It can be done under local anesthesia. The cost is between $1, 000 and $1, 500.

Dimple surgery: The price of any procedure varies by location and by surgeon. Have your face evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon with experience in this procedure to see if you area candidate.
