I am 12 months post op with Karidis. Unfortunately i am left with a crater deformity that looks particularly bad on flexing the right pec. I think he removed too much gland and my skin is stuck to the muscle. My gyno wasn't that bad to begin with so i am gutted. He is offering to attempt a fat graft. Has anyone suffered a similar fate with Karidis and had a revision done either by him or elsewhere?

Sorry to hear that mate. I am almost two years post op and my results were ok but not as good as I thought they would be. I too have a slight crater deformity on one side when flexing and a little bit of lumpiness on the other side.

After reading a few threads on here about Karidis and revisions he seemed reluctant to do them so I never requested one. I probably should have although after doing some research it appears that fat grafts don't seem to be very successful.

Hope it goes well for you.

Hi Hauser, sorry to hear your outcome was less than perfect. Karidis seems a little aggressive with gland removal. I was initially happy but as things started to heal, you realise that you actually end up flexing the chest a lot more than you think, and the mirror is a daily reminder the reportedly best in the UK hasn't quite worked out for you. The fat graft doesn't seem like a risk i want to take given the poor success, covid risk, and not able to exercise again for a few weeks. The fat flap technique seems more promising. Have you researched that technique / surgeons?
