What is a Dimple?
A natural dimple is the result of a small opening in a muscle in the cheek called the buccinator muscle. Although it’s a hereditary trait, it can be created with a minimally invasive surgical procedure(dimpleplasty). Even though the cause of dimple is a defect in the facial muscle, in many cultures it is seen as a highly attractive trait. Dimples are considered a sign of youth and beauty which accentuate the smile of the person possessing them. People born with natural facial dimples can lose them or see a reduction of depth as they get older and the skin, muscle, and physical weight changes.
