I will discuss the analytic bootstrap technique applied to holographic superconformal field theories. In particular I will focus on $\mathcal{N}=4$ Super Yang-Mills and study correlators of quarter-BPS operators. Despite the fact that they are less protected than their half-BPS counterparts, these correlators can be constrained via the chiral algebra twist and this information is enough to recover the leading $1/c$ correction to the conformal dimensions of the unprotected multi-trace operators that are exchanged. In doing this we discovered that a certain limit involving the R-symmetry polarizations bears some similarities with its half-BPS analog.
