Only 20% of a population are born with dimples. And it`s, actually, a defect in the facial muscle. But dimples are usually associated with children and are still popular. Just imagine how popular they were after 1936 movie “Dimples” with Shirley Temple! The myth of possibility of making dimples with something pointy is still alive and still dangerous but if you dream about dimples surgeons have a solution.
