Will my dimples in my cheeks disappear after my palatal expander is removed?! Please help!..

I feel my face is sort of changing because of my palatal expander and I was wondering how my cheeks might end up and if my dimples would go away??? I really don't want them too, and plus I have braces:/ any info on how to keep this from happening!? thank u:)

No. Dimples are a deficiency in the muscles in your cheeks. Has nothing to do with your palate. If you have dimples now, you will have them when your orthodontic therapy is completed.
