If you were ever considering surgery to get fake dimples and wanted to know how they could look, these pictures of Cherelle Campbell, may help you make up your mind.
24-year-old Cherelle was desperate to get deep dimples like Cheryl Cole and American model Lauren London, so went to a plastic surgeon, who cut holes out of her cheeks to achieve the look.
The east Londoner had always wanted attention-grabbing dimples, but unfortunately was only born with small ones.
I’ve always loved dimples. I wasn’t blessed to be given big ones. When God was giving out dimples I was at the back of the queue.
She discovered the procedure by accident online, while looking for possible surgeries with her friend.
I was online with my friend and we were basically having a joke as to what procedures you could do and you couldn’t do, and I was like: “wow, I didn’t know you could have your dimples done”.
The trainee lawyer underwent a procedure called dimpleplasty, which involved her having holes punched into her cheeks using a scalpel. Once the holes have been created, the new dimples are stitched into place.
The surgery usually costs £1,500 for two dimples, however Cherelle didn’t have to pay for her procedure as she allowed the clinic to use her story in its publicity materials. Very smart.
Cherelle’s story was shown on Channel 4 documentary Bodyshockers: My Piercing Hell, and she was also filmed having the procedure done.
After the doctors showed Cherelle her new face, she looked a bit disappointed, but comforted herself by telling the cameras it would get better with time.
I was impressed as I didn’t think they were going to be that deep, it’s mixed feelings. Once it has healed, I know I will love it.
Two weeks after the surgery, Cherelle revealed that her new dimples could hardly be seen, telling MailOnline that the dimples are subtle and only visible when she smiles.
She also thinks she’s been made to look like a celeb-obsessed idiot on the CH4 show.
I did not want to look like Cheryl Cole or Lauren London, that will never happen and I don’t idolise them.
I wanted to do it because I hated my smile previously. I spent some days with Channel 4. Most of what was said in that time did not appear in the show. They chose what they wanted and put it in a five minute snippet to their liking.
I literally did not have the time to film the catchup. So when they asked I had to turn the offer down. I now regret this as I’ve been made to look like a fool.
You don’t look like a fool Cherelle, you got those holes for free remember!
