Marking or removing the chin dimple

English subtitled video

The chin dimple operation is a very simple operation that allows us to highlight the chin dimple if we wish to make it stand out more, or to make it disappear if it is not desired or if it is too pronounced for our taste.

Clínica Sanza in Barcelona, Spain, is a centre of reference in the treatment of chin dimple.


At Clínica Sanza we rely on the Sagrat Cor Hospital, part of the Quirónsalud group, to perform our surgical procedures.
Its prestige, facilities, medical and healthcare staff, as well as its technology are a guarantee.

Frequently asked questions about chin dimple surgery

What is the procedure for making a chin dimple?

It can vary, depending on which kind of dimple does the patient want, and the characteristics of each patient’s chin. There are those who want a small dimple and others a thin line (split chin), in any case it’s a surgery with local anesthesia, very simple and with a very fast recovery.

Can I live a normal life after having my chin dimpled?

Although it is a very simple procedure, there may be some swelling and some small bruising, so it is recommended not to gesticulate excessively the first 24 hours or be exposed to the sun until the bruises disappear.

Will I have a lot of pain after the chin dimple filling?

No, it is an intervention that hardly gives discomfort and if there is some pain, it can be perfectly managed with mild analgesics. It only requires a little rest from the area for a few hours to avoid misplacing the dimple.

Will I be able to eat and gesticulate normally after both cases?

Yes, the only thing is that we recommend resting the area, i.e. do not gesticulate too much or chew excessively during the first 24-48 hours to avoid bruising and inflammation in the case of dimple creation.

When can I shave after surgery?

Wait 3 to 5 days to shave.

If I don’t like the dimple, can I take it out?

Indeed. In fact, we have had patients who wish to remove their very marked dimple or intermental line. The procedure is simple and with local anesthesia like the dentist. It is done inside the mouth and leaves no scars.

How do you make a dimple?

Through a small incision inside the gums we extract a little fat from the chin and separate the muscle, called the chin tassel, in two halves if you want a vertical dimple or making a hole if you want a simple punctual dimple.

And how do you get a dimple out?

If you don’t like it, or if it is very sharp, we also enter the inside of the gums and suture the muscles that are separated or bifid in the middle line. We do not recommend fillers as they are absorbed and they move quickly and do not achieve a beautiful or permanent result.
