These dimples are sometimes called by other names, such as Dimples of Venus, sacral dimples, or Pilonidal dimples. The dimples themselves are created by a person's individual bone structure, in relation to his or her specific muscle definition and body fat ratio. If there isn't much underlying muscle, a depression may occur, resulting in a back dimple. This type of occurrence can also happen on the chin, the cheeks, the buttocks, or other areas of the human body. Luckily, many people believe dimples are cute, and see them as "beauty marks", instead of disfiguring depressions on the surface of the epidermis. Reactions to back dimples are generally subjective, as beauty is truly "in the eye of the beholder".
If you have back dimples, it's best to embrace nature and enjoy these little physical quirks. Chances are, they were passed down to you as part of your own DNA, or genetic coding. It's quite common that your parents, siblings, and close relatives will also have back dimples that look very similar to your own. Change in diet and exercise may affect the depth of your dimples, but they will not eradicate them completely. Building up muscle under the skin will strengthen the support system under the top layer of the epidermis, giving a smoother result; however, if your bone structure results in back dimples that are quite prominent, changing your lifestyle won't make them disappear forever.
