Cheek Dimples

Found on both sides of the mouth for some of us, cheek dimples are considered attractive and ‘genetically dominant’. Around 37 percent of the population are having cheek dimples (in a study of 2300 people).

Cheek dimples are caused by a change in a particular facial muscle called zygomaticus major. Genetics too play an important part for a face to have dimples, which can develop over a lifetime and also disappear.

Cheek dimples are associated with beauty and some cultures consider it a sign of good luck. They also help us communicate better and recognize the intensity of facial gestures in a person.

Some people also opt for surgery to get these cheek bends, something called dimpleplasty.
