Hi All, Does anyone know a surgeon in Perth WA who does the cleft lift operation? I had my first surgery 4 weeks ago which was the Karydakis procedure. I went back to the hospital yesterday as I had concerns the sinus had reoccurred and sure enough the doctor confirmed there was a sinus open at the bottom of my wound. I asked her about the next steps from here and I also asked about a cleft lift procedure as I heard good things about it from this site. She hadn't heard of a cleft lift and thought it is probably another name for Karydakis procedure as they both try and flatten the cleft. I am due back to the hospital in 4 weeks as she wants my original scar to heal fully before we book anything else in. I was hoping between now and then I could find a surgeon experienced in pilonidal surgery in Perth that I could have a chat to and possibly get them to do a cleft lift (if it is in fact different to Karydakis procedure) If I can't find someone in Perth I might have to start looking interstate for someone who can perform the procedure, so if anyone has any suggestions for experienced cleft lift surgeons that would be greatly appreciated!
