■ Dimple

Dimples often appear according to individual's facial expression due to slight skin fold.

■ Types of Dimple

Ideal location of dimples is the intersection where the line along the lips and the line below the pupils meet. However, the ideal location may vary according to individual, face and overall appearance.

After 5 mm of incision inside the mouth, tissue is partially removed to create a dimple suing absorbing suture for patient's convenience.
