Can dimples be created with Cheek Implants?

I have always wanted to have dimples.  Is there a cosmetic surgery that could give me dimples and is it an easy procedure?  Would it be done with cheek implants?

Hi There,

It actually has nothing to do with cheek implants.  There is a procedure that a plastic surgeon can perform called a dimpleplasty where they actually craft dimples on your face.  It is a fairly simple procedure where the surgeon will create a dimple with a slowly dissolving stitch. The absorbable sutures are fastened to the inside of your cheek and tied to create a natural-looking indentation.

The recovery is quick and the highest reported risk is that the dimple is not as deep as the patient anticipated.
