What Is Dimple Creation?

Dimple creation surgery Kirkland is an outpatient procedure that creates dimples in the cheeks when you smile. Dimples are a highly sought-after physical attribute that is only present in about thirty to forty percent of the population. 

Throughout history, dimples have been seen as a standout, stunning mark of beauty. Women and men enjoy a smile with dimples that create a soft, beautiful appearance. In truth, a dimple results from a muscular split in the cheek muscles. The cheek muscle, known as the zygomaticus major, sometimes splits under the muscle, creating the indentation when we smile. The split muscles create a hammock effect in the cheek, where the dimple sits. To get a similar indentation, Dr. Young uses a specialized incision technique to create beautiful dimples. 

Where Do Dimples Come From?

All dimples are inherited genetically and result from muscle or tissue structure differences. However, cheek dimples form when the cheek muscle is split in half, with a lower portion dipping in the middle. DImples are more noticeable when you smile due to the muscles contracting and increasing skin tension, making the hammock-like structure more apparent.

Some people only have one dimple on one side of the face rather than two. For those who want two dimples, Dr. Young can create a dimple that looks like the natural one you already have. While dimples are a genetic muscle difference, Dr. Young can create natural-looking dimples for every patient.
