Is dimples a physical defect?

The idiom [smiling like a flower] refers to the appearance of dimples like flowers when laughing. It has been a word to describe beautiful women since ancient times.

However, dimples are an unfair gift from nature. Only one in 18 people in East Asia has dimples. Moreover, many people have dimples only on one side or in different positions and numbers on both sides.

Therefore, natural and symmetrical dimples are even more rare.

Dimples are not a physical defect

There are some rumors [dimples are hereditary muscle development defects], but there is no actual evidence to prove that dimples are not conducive to the survival of human species and are not defects.

However, those who insist that dimples are defects without dimples are indeed a little psychological defect.

How do natural dimples form?

Everyone has some differences in the subtle body structure, just like the difference between height, height, fat and thin. And dimples are also such a subtle difference.

We can express our feelings through a face, thanks to the developed expression muscles. These muscles start from the bone and end at the skin. Through contraction, the skin moves to form rich expressions.

Some people’s facial expression muscles can better combine with the skin, and can further pull the skin when smiling, causing the skin to sag and form dimples.

In addition to dimples, double eyelids are also formed based on this principle.

Can you have beautiful dimples the day after tomorrow?

Beautiful dimples can also be found through some plastic surgery, such as small incision surgery and catgut embedding surgery.

By imitating the natural mechanism of dimple formation, the [artificial dimple] can be formed by adhering the skin of the designated part to the deep expression muscle.

Other injuries that can form this adhesion can also cause dimples, such as soft tissue contusion and hematoma. Fibrous tissue may cause this adhesion and form acquired dimples during repair.

However, daily pinching is not enough to cause enough damage and adhesion, and dimples cannot be formed.

Not good [dimples]

Not all dimples are beautiful.

For example, dimples appearing on the breast are often an early manifestation of breast cancer.

Due to the influence of cancer cells, the subcutaneous tissues and ligaments of the breast will be damaged to different degrees and adhere to the skin, which is manifested in different degrees of sunken areas on the skin surface. Doctors call this “dimple sign”.

This kind of skin change on the breast is sometimes obvious, but in most cases it is very slight and requires careful observation and comparison before it can be found.

Dimple is an anatomical feature, a beautiful coincidence, not a developmental defect. The dimple sign on the breast is an early sign of breast cancer and deserves attention.
