In traditional Asian folklore, the presence of a dimple suggests good fortune and fertility, while in the West it is more simply viewed as cute and unique. Shailesh Vadodaria, one of the UK’s leading cosmetic surgeons, specialises in dimple creation surgery.

He has presented over 100 papers in national and international plastic surgical congresses and regularly provides his expertise to the media, appearing in Channel 4’s ‘Embarrassing bodies’, Marie Claire magazine and Reuters documentaries amongst others.

The procedure is performed under local anaesthetics. It takes 20 minutes and is normally done as a day case procedure without general anaesthetics and without overnight stay in hospital. For easy access, MACS clinic operates regularly in both Harley Street and Watford.
