    I know it's just been a week but my son took a look at his surgery site and is a little upset that he seems to have no crack at all. Is that because it may be inflammed and when everything is done healing he will have some kind of crack? He's also afraid since there is no crack when he will be running around or doing any type of activity, it will just rip apart.

    Plenty of butt... in my case I lost maybe a few of inches (from maybe 24). Done correctly, you look perfectly normal after a cleft lift.

    Is he able to sit on the toilet w/o any problems? I think if he doesn't feel a pull then, then it should be fine. I still have a visible midline but it's def. a more shallow than before. I have a few photos on my computer. Let me know if you want to see mine to compare to your son's. I can do very low squats too w/o feeling like it's ripping apart. So hopefully he'll be fine once he heals.

    Hey Elly! If I could see some pics that would be great. I'm just afraid it looks "weird".
    Thanks!

    Hi Ellysparkles, my daughter 18 is terrified she will have a strange looking flat butt. Can you post or send some photos - sorry - she's do self conscious as it is. And now this!
