A pilonidal cyst affects the skin and tissues surrounding the tailbone or coccyx area. It is caused by the accumulation of hair, dirt, and debris that gets trapped in a small depression in the skin. Over time, this can lead to a cyst or abscess, which can cause pain, swelling, and discomfort.
If you are experiencing pilonidal cyst symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention from a qualified healthcare professional. While some mild cases may resolve on their own with proper hygiene and pain management, more severe cases may require medical intervention. Receiving timely and appropriate treatment can significantly improve your quality of life by reducing pain, discomfort, and the risk of complications.

Cleft lift surgeries are an option for treating pilonidal cysts that involves removing the cyst and surrounding tissue, then using a flap of skin to close the wound. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, meaning the patient will be awake but numb in the treated area. The length of the procedure can vary depending on the complexity of the cyst and surrounding tissue, but it usually takes between one to two hours.
The results of the treatment can vary on your condition and the chosen treatment approach. With the cleft lift procedure, most patients can expect to experience reduced pain and discomfort within a few days of the procedure, with complete healing taking several weeks to a few months. During recovery, patients may need to take time off work or limit physical activity to allow for proper healing.
