In demand: Plastic surgeons say they are receiving increasing numbers of requests for dimples like Cheryl Cole’s


Plenty of us would like her lifestyle and bank balance. And that’s not all that we envy about Cheryl Cole.

Plastic surgeons have reported a surge in requests for dimples just like the singer’s.

One firm said they have seen an 11 per cent rise in inquiries in the past two months alone.

That’s despite the newly single Mrs Cole having little reason to flash her trademark smile recently.

Experts are less than enthusiastic about the procedure, warning that its long-term effects are unknown.

The dimples will also not look entirely natural, as they remain permanently rather than appearing only when you grin. The operation, dimpleplasty, involves making a tiny cut in the skin to create a small depression.

A stitch is then used to tack the underside of the skin down to a deeper layer and hold it in place. Once the suture dissolves, permanent scar tissue will remain to maintain the dimple.

A spokesman for plastic surgeons SurgiCare said: ‘There is a worrying rise in demand for "designer dimples" as women go to ever extreme lengths to look like their favourite celebrities, including Cheryl Cole. The growing phenomenon has hit UK shores after a rapid rise in popularity in America.

‘However, designer dimples are akin to permanent scarring and could turn to designer disasters as the face begins to droop with age.’ 

Some 88 per cent of enquiries regarding the procedure have come from people wishing to recreate dimples in the face, the firm said.

However, ten per cent of requests have come from men wishing to create a chin cleft, and a further two per cent of enquiries from women wanting to re-create dimples on their lower back which have been lost after weight gain.
