Cosmetic Surgery Trends: The Dimpleplasty

By  |  | Celebrity


Cheryl Tweedy is said to be the inspiration behind one of the latest cosmetic surgery trends – the dimple job. Cosmetic surgeons have commented that they have recently seen a rise in the number of women hoping to have plastic surgery to give them dimples, just like the petite singer.

The dimpleplasty surgery will not give entirely natural results however. The dimples themselves will remain permanently rather than only appearing when the patient smiles.

The actual dimpleplasty surgery involves the cosmetic surgeon making a tiny cut in the skin to create a small depression. A stitch is then used to hold the underside of the skin down to a deeper layer and hold it in place, creating the dimple indent. Once this suture dissolves, permanent scar tissue should remain holding the indent in place.

Caution should be advised with this cosmetic surgery as it is relatively new and therefore there are no long-term studies over it’s efficacy or results over time. There is as yet no study showing how the dimple will age and some people are concerned that the dimple may start to look slightly peculiar as the face ages and droops slightly.

Although most of the dimple enquiries have come from women, a small number of men are also looking to have this surgery done to create a chin cleft.
