Hey guys wanted to post a update. I spoke with my surgeon today and she said she wanted to do the Karydakis flap procedure. It sounded all good on paper, she explained how they drag the skin to the side so that it addresses the gluteal cleft and its a closed procedure. She said that this was very similar to the Bascom cleft lift so that was reassuring. Was wondering if any of you had any input or experience on this. I really like this surgeon so I'm hoping i can get this surgery done with this surgeon and that this procedure will check out as well as a cleft lift would. Based off of studies I've been reading it seems to be pretty solid? Thanks in advance!
