The ‘Cute’ Asian Dimple Creation Surgery
While many plastic surgeries are considered scary, the Asian dimple creation surgery is, well, a ‘cute’ one. In Asian folklore, dimples suggest good fortune and fertility. Even in the West they are considered cute and slightly unusual, and there has never really been a negative connotation associated with someone having dimples. There is no specific culture or nation that has more dimples than another; it is simply a facial feature that sometimes occurs in people because of the structure of their facial muscles.
How ‘cute’ is the actual procedure?
The Asian dimple creation surgery is a very short procedure, which only takes about half an hour to complete. The patient can ask for any number of dimples to be created, however, the general understanding is that there will be one dimple on each side of the face. Having more than one dimple on each side of the face can look very distracting and unnatural. The doctor creates the dimples by making a connection between the skin and the cheek muscle, so that when a patient smiles the new tissue connection will create a dimple.
When the connection is made, the wound is closed with a suture. Because this is a wound inside the mouth, it heals very quickly and the only remaining scar from the inside of the mouth is the actual formation of the dimple. The cost of a plastic surgery vacation starts from about a thousand dollars, while the cost of Asian dimple creation surgery varies from one clinic to another. But because it is such a small operation, it is generally not expensive. A local anaesthetic is enough for the whole surgery, and the patient can resume normal activities as soon as the surgery is over. There will probably be some uncomfortable sensations for the next couple of days when eating, but this will stop very quickly once the small wound heals.
Is it reversible?
The procedure is completely reversible, especially during the first few weeks if the patient is unhappy with the result for whatever reason. In order to prevent any potential unhappiness with the outcome however, the patient should make sure that they do indeed wish to have dimples. It is important to remember that, even though this is a very simple operation, these artificial dimples may not look as natural as real ones.
There is a very clear connection between plastic surgery and self esteem, and even something as small as a dimple can make someone feel better about their appearance. This is one of the safest and most reversible procedures available, so future patients should rest assured that they will not be put through a lot of pain or a difficult recovery afterwards. The main aim of Korean Plastic Surgery is to make people happy, and to increase the confidence that they have in their body. South Korea is one of the most surgically advanced countries in the world, and its specialists are developing their skills more and more every year. Many people from other countries also come to Korea to undergo their own surgeries, because they may feel that the Korean doctors have more experience in their work.
