Lacking natural dimples, AJ longed for the face feature thinking it would give her a youthful appearance and she joins The Doctors to explain more about her dimpleplasty.
“I really always liked dimples. I find them a really endearing character on someone’s face and it also helps to soften the face and really accentuate the smile,” she explains. “I think dimples when you smile… make your face look softer and friendlier."
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra explains that dimples are genetic and inherited from your parents. In order to create a faux dimple, a small amount of the tissue in the mouth is taken out to create the indent and then after a healing period, you will have new permanent dimples.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says he often encounters patients looking for a dimple in their chin for definition. As always, The Doctors stress only seeing a board-certified plastic surgeon for any cosmetic procedure.
