Beautiful, cute and natural looking dimples
Anyone, man or woman of any age, can enjoy a brand new set of dimples. Dimple creation can be performed under local anaesthetic at the Medical Arts for Cosmetic Surgery clinic in Watford, Hertfordshire.
Natural dimples occur either on one or both sides of the face, and are generally present only when the face is animated by smiling, laughing or talking. A natural dimple is believed to be formed when there is a small defect in the cheek musculature or where the muscles used to form a smile are joined to the deeper part for the skin inside the cheek. When you smile the skin is pulled, causing the dimple to appear. Cheek dimples are dynamic!
Dimple creation surgery is a simple, safe and straightforward procedure which can be performed under local anaesthetic at our new plastic surgery clinic in Watford, Hertfordshire.

There is also a theoretical possibility of injury to the nerves or to the saliva glands, although it has never happened.
