Cherelle Campbell was jealous of celebrity Cheryl Cole. She wasn’t jealous of her hair, or her status, or even her money. She was jealous of something much simpler; all she wanted was a great pair of dimples. She stated that when God was handing out dimples, she was put in the reserve queue. So she decided that she was going to take matters into her own hands.
People who want dimples when they weren’t blessed with them naturally can get a surgery called dimpleplasty. It is when the skin of the cheeks is cut and stitches are placed in the cheeks in order to make a dimple in the skin. The dimples are extremely deep for the first few days but then they are much less noticeable once they heal.
The surgery routinely costs roughly $2,500 for both cheeks. Campbell said that she got the idea online while she and a friend were searching for surgeries that you could and could not do. She had never known that you could surgically implant dimples. She thought about it for a while and then contacted a surgeon. She wanted to get the dimples as deep as she could so that she wouldn’t have to do it again.
Cherelle is on Episode 4 of Bodyshockers: My Piercing Hell. The show filmed her procedure and followed her through the healing phase and the results after, as well. At first, after the surgery was over she was unsure about how she was feeling about the dimples as they were really deep and noticeable, but then after they healed they became much more subdued and now you can only see them when she smiles.
