Traumatic cheek dimples are commonly encountered following trauma. The majority resolve spontaneously with time. In some cases dimples persist, leaving a cosmetic deformity particularly noticeable with movements of facial expression. We propose an operative technique for such cases where symptoms persist for a year or more.
Our operative methods and representative cases are described.
