I am very interested to do the above. That is a dimple (round imprint) and not a cleft chin (vertical imprint). Has anyone here undergone such sugery? Im finding it had to find a surgeon here in Sydney, Australia. I think this facial feature is very attractive.
Surgery for Creating a Chin Dimple?

Creating a chin implant
Around 25 years ago, this was quite a fashionable procedure. It is very simple and can be performed in the office under local anesthesia. It is performed from inside the mouth to pull back and tack a loop in place (in layman's terms) to create a dimple effect. I have no found much demand for it in recent years. I would think that any board certified plastic surgeon would have the ability to perform the procedure and many may be experienced in it.
