Exercise to Get Dimple on Cheek

I always fail to figure what it is about dimples that make a person so attractive. They are so desirable, so eye-catching that many of us want to be among the blessed few who can flash a dimpled smile and sway onlookers off their feet.

Do you know that dimples develop mainly due to a kind of fault in the structure of the facial muscle and skin? Every face has a muscle known as zygomaticus major. However, when this muscle is shorter than usual, it is likely to pull in your skin when you smile, and create a dimple.


As hard as you try to poke a pen in your cheek and create a dimple, this is not how you are going to develop one. As a matter of fact it is be nearly unmanageable to get a dimple without any surgery.

To create dimples through surgery, a small incision is made through the inside of the cheek, in the zygomaticus muscle. A suture is permanently placed between the skin and muscle, thereby causing a dimple when a person smiles. Though short, it is definitely a sensitive procedure. You are likely to experience some form of bruising after the procedure, until the suture heals completely. Also be prepared for the fact that the size of your dimples may be medium and not very large. The process may get very complicated if you try to go beyond the demarcated levels of physical enhancements through unnatural means.


The doctor will most probably prescribe antibiotics for quicker healing and preventing infection. You will also have to use an antiseptic oral cleanser. A liquid diet is best during this period and do refrain from talking too much or laughing aloud. The swelling and pain will go away in a few days if you follow the restrictions.

However, if you do not want to go under the knife then here is one exercise that has given results to the lucky few. First, find the part of your face you want to make the dimple, lightly point your index finger up and into the dent (Make sure the shape of your dimple is right before you proceed!) Next, keeping your finger pushed firmly into your face (don’t push against bones though, just muscles!) smile your biggest smile then release, still keeping your finger in place. Then smile again but this time, keep smiling and instead tense and release only the muscles in your face surrounding your finger.


You can do these exercises as many times as you want but patience and commitment are key, the more you do it and the longer you hold the position, the sooner you will see results.

      1. I have natural lines from my chin that create dimples under the apples of my cheeks. Many people with natural dimples also have lines running under the dimples to the chin.
