Dimple Plasty?!?!

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU HEARD IT ALL ABOUT COSMETIC SURGERY: DIMPLE PLASTY

While there are no numbers on how many are performed annually, dimple-plasties are an increasingly talked-about trend on consumer sites and beauty forums, hen it comes to beauty, many are anxious to obtain the latest Hollywood trend – from haircuts to clothes – to the more extreme like Angelina’s pouty lips or Julia’s famous smile. Now, the latest trend involves an adorable pair of dimples. Thought of by many as the quintessential “cute” facial feature, there is a growing trend of people seeking the procedure from plastic surgeons to add dimples to their cheeks. Known as dimple-plasty, this cosmetic procedure (ranging from $2,000 – $5,000) involves a tiny incision in the cheek and is done under local anesthesia, taking less than an hour.

Dr. Michael Salzhauer is a board certified Bal Harbour, Florida Plastic Surgeon shares about dimple plasty.

He says that, “plastic surgery dimples can be fairly easily created under local anesthesia. The plastic surgeon will make an incision inside the mouth on the inner surface of the cheeks. A small depression will then be created in the cheek muscles and bucosal tissues. Internal stitches may be used to suture the dimple divot in place and external stitches will be used to close the incision inside the mouth.” If the patient desires a large dimple, punch tissue excision may be used to completely remove a portion of the cheek muscle and create a deeper dimple. The entire dimple creation surgery generally lasts less than one hour.

What are the Risks of Dimple Creation?

According to Dr. Salzhauer, “most patients will not require general anesthesia and will only need local numbing of the mouth tissue with an injectable anesthetic such as lidocaine. Use of local anesthesia limits risks of any plastic surgery. As with any type of cosmetic surgery, there is a risk of infection. This risk may be minimized by following post operative instructions that are given following the creation of dimples. There will also be some swelling, bruising and pain which are generally mild to moderate and localized within the cheek tissue.”

What Will the Dimples Look Like?

Initially, the dimples that have been created will be present all of the time. After a few weeks, depending on the depth of the dimple creation, the cheeks may flatten out some and the new dimples will only be seen when smiling. This is because the cheek muscles will heal and close the depression somewhat but will contract more at the site of the dimple, creating a natural looking result as if one had been born with dimples.

New! Degree Motion Sense

Degree asked me to try their new Degree Women motionSENSE™ before the big public launch.

So what is motionSENSE™? The new anti-perspirant & deodorant is different than anything you have ever tried. Other anti-perspirants and deodorants release fragrance upon contact with moisture, but the new breakthrough motionSENSE™ technology is activated by motion first and is proven to help you stay ahead of perspiration.

My first day trying this out was at our local Shamrock Run and it was amazing. Once we started moving the motionSENSE™ kicked in and released a soft fresh scent. I stayed dry and smelling great the whole race and past the beer tents!

I just started a new workout that has been kicking my butt and motionSENSE™ has been amazing. It keeps me feeling and smelling fresh all the way to my post workout shower. Degree motionSENSE™ is great for anyone who enjoys working out and ladies who will be getting active outdoors this Spring and Summer.

The perfect balance of keeping you fresh and dry without overpowering!
