The Timeless Dimple

Dimple creation, also called Dimpleplasty, is the newest trend in cosmetic surgery. Dr. Peter Chang, M.D., D.M.D. of Timeless Plastic Surgery in Sugar Land now performs four times as many Dimpleplasty procedures as he did just a couple of years ago.

Natural dimples are muscle defects in the cheek where skin is stuck to underlying tissue. Dimple creation is an outpatient procedure that consists of the doctor making a tiny incision inside a patient’s cheek. There are no cuts on the outside of the face. A small piece of cheek muscle is removed, and the remaining muscle is attached to the underside of the skin with a dissolvable suture. The incision on the inside of the cheek leaves a permanent indentation in the skin, creating the dimple.

The Timeless Dimple offered only at Timeless Plastic Surgery is an updated modification of the original procedure, said Dr. Chang, one of the few area cosmetic surgeons who offers the service. “Dimples can be more personalized. Patients can choose designer dimples; they may want them long, short, deep or shallow,” he explained. The patient also chooses exactly where they would like the dimples to be on their cheeks.

Dr. Chang has more than 15 years of training and experience in cosmetic surgery and has earned two Ivy League degrees and two doctoral degrees. He is trusted in the community for his personal concierge and professional service.

Timeless Plastic Surgery is located at 1327 Lake Pointe Parkway, Suite 300. For more information, visit
