Dimple Creation in Dubai
Dimples are considered a sign of beauty and prosperity and some cultures associate them with good fortune. They help to brighten up a smile and add character to the face. They are especially desired by those who have family members or friends who have naturally occurring dimples. A natural dimple is usually formed when there exists a tiny defect in the cheek muscles. The skin that overlay this small defect is stuck down to the connective tissue underlying it and creates a dimple in the skin when smiling. Luckily, this naturally occurring process can be simulated by dimple creation surgery and enhance your smile to a great effect.
