Back dimples are one of the illnesses and symptoms listed at

Most people have back dimples, which are typically undetectable. On the lower back or sacrum, they appear as indentations. Venus dimples and sacral dimples are the two categories into which back dimples fall.

Back dimples are defined in this page, along with when you should consult a doctor about them.

What do "back dimples" actually mean?

Back dimples are discrete indentations on the sacrum or lower back. Venus dimples and sacral dimples are the two categories into which back dimples fall.

A row of dimples, one on each side of the spine, can be seen on the lower back as a result of venus dimples. They are brought on by the ligaments connecting the skin to the pelvis. At birth, these dimples are already there.

Above the groove between your buttocks, there is a single dimple called a sacral dimple. Sacral dimples are also congenital and typically harmless. However, in certain cases, sacral dimples may be a sign of a more serious issue.

What produces various types of back dimples and what causes them?

Two categories of back dimples exist:

Venus's dimplings

On the lower back, two dimples known as "Venus dimples" appear right above the gluteal cleft. Exactly behind the two sacroiliac joints, which unite the sacrum to the ilium of the pelvis, is this type of back dimple.

A short ligament is what causes the dimples. Due to the belief that they would boost fertility, good fortune, and beauty, Venus dimples were given their name in honor of Venus, the Roman goddess of beauty.

Venus dimples can occur in both men and women, but they are more prevalent and noticeable in women. Venusian dimples are not significantly affected by exercise.

Sacral ridges

A pit or indentation directly above the buttock fold is known as a sacral dimple. It affects 1.8–7.2% of newborn babies. In addition to being a congenital condition, there are no other recognized causes.

A large percentage of sacral dimples don't need to be treated. On the other hand, a sacral depression with a skin tag, tuft of hair, or skin discoloration may be a sign of an underlying illness.

If you have back dimples, when should you visit a doctor?

If you have venus dimples, you don't need to see a doctor. Sometimes a medical checkup is necessary in the case of sacral dimples.

A screening for a sacral dimple is frequently included in a newborn physical examination while your baby is still in the hospital. Additionally, a doctor will look for any other signs of a sacral dimple. These signs include things like a skin tag, a hair on the dimple, or discoloration of the skin there.

Any of these symptoms could prompt a physician to request an ultrasound of the sacrum to check for spinal cord disorders.
