Dimples : Parts of the body

Wikipedia : Dimple also known as gelasin is a small natural indentation in the flesh on a 

part of the human body, most notably in the cheek or on the chin. Gelasin is derived from 

the Greek word 'gelaein' which means  to laugh.

Dimples have been mislabeled as genetically inherited. Most of the dimples are 

permanent while some are transient. 

It is possible to surgically to  create permanent dimples, and the surgical procedure to 

create dimples is very simple and straightforward.

Dimples are created by the doctor making a tiny incision inside a patient's cheek. The 

incision on the inside of the cheek leaves a permanent indentation in the skin, creating 

the dimple. The entire outpatient procedure requires only a local anesthetic and takes 

about 30 minutes to complete.

Those un-inherited dimples disappear as the baby's baby fat melts away. But for those 

who inherited dimples, the condition lasts until old age—and concurrent fat loss—lessen 

their appearance. In general, dimples are permanent,

Dimples frequently take place on both cheeks and one side dimple is considered a rare 

phenomena. It  is said only 20% of the population owns dimples. People with dimples look 

cute and adorable and is considered as a sign of beauty. Some cultures conclude that 

Dimples bring good luck and happiness.

 Fans swoon over the Indian actress', Preety Zinta's (Indian actress)  deep dimples. Alia 

Bhatt's (Indian actress)  subtle dimples add a zing to her personality.

He boarded the 5.30 pm bus from the University. This was not his usual time nor his 

route. He had taken a detour just to dive into the natural indentation. Romance and 

wooing were not his forte but Cupid had not missed his mark.

Today he hurried his pace to catch the 5.30 pm bus. He had to pick up groceries on the 

way to home.

She opened the door. The grey in her hair and the dimpled cheeks set his heart racing 

even after three decades. He had learnt the sign language to converse with her along 

with his Master’s degree.
