Back dimples are widespread in most persons and are usually unnoticeable. They are visible as indentations on the lower back or sacrum. Back dimples are classified into two types: venus dimples and sacral dimples.

This post will explain what back dimples are and when you should see a doctor about them.


What exactly are back dimples?


Back dimples are inconspicuous indentations on the lower back or sacrum. Back dimples are classified into two types: venus dimples and sacral dimples.


Venus dimples show as a row of dimples on the lower back, one on each side of the spine. They are caused by ligaments that attach the skin to the pelvis. These dimples are present at birth.


A sacral dimple is a single dimple located above the groove between your buttocks. Sacral dimples are also congenital and, in most cases, innocuous. However, sacral dimples can be an indication of a more serious problem in some circumstances.


What are the different sorts of back dimples and what causes them?


Back dimples are classified into two types:


1. Venus dimples

Venus dimples are two dimples that occur immediately above the gluteal cleft on the lower back. This sort of back dimple is located right beneath the two sacroiliac joints, which connect the sacrum to the ilium of the pelvis.


The dimples are caused by a short ligament. Venus dimples are named after Venus, the Roman goddess of beauty, because they were thought to increase fertility, luck, and beauty.


While both males and females can have venus dimples, they are more common and pronounced in females. Exercise has little impact on the appearance of venus dimples.


2. Sacral dimples


A sacral dimple is an indentation or pit located directly above the buttock fold. It affects 1.8-7.2 percent of newborn newborns. There are no known causes, except from the fact that it is a congenital disorder.


The majority of sacral dimples do not require treatment. A sacral indentation with a tuft of hair, skin tag, or skin discoloration, on the other hand, could indicate an underlying disease.


When should you see a doctor about back dimples?

There is no need to see a doctor if you have venus dimples. In the event of sacral dimples, a doctor's evaluation is occasionally required.


While your newborn is still in the hospital, a newborn physical exam will commonly include a check for a sacral dimple. A doctor will also search for any additional symptoms associated with a sacral dimple. A tuft of hair on the dimple, a skin tag, or skin darkening around the dimple are examples of these symptoms.


If a doctor sees any of these signs, they may order an ultrasound of the sacrum to see whether there are conditions affecting the spinal cord.
