A dimple is a visible indentation anywhere on the skin. Dimples are commonly found on both cheeks. A rarer form is the single dimple, that occurs on one side of the face only.
Dimples are caused by having differences in a human facial muscle, called zygomaticus major facial muscle structure. Cheek dimples used to be considered a dominant trait. But, in the present day, more scientists consider them a genetic abnormality.
“Cheek dimples are a genetically transmitted abnormality of a muscle in the cheek,” said plastic surgeon Brent Moelleken.
According to statistics, if both the parents have dimples, the children have 50-100% chances of inheriting dimple genes. If neither of the parents has the dimple genes, their children will not have dimples. And, if only one parent has dimple genes, the chances of the children inheriting the genes are 50%.
