What is a Mommy Makeover?
Expert plastic surgeon Dr. Jerry Chidester, or Dr. Chiddy, can help women get their pre-pregnancy body back. While childbirth is an exciting and amazing moment for a woman, it can change the tightness and shape of certain body parts. This may cause frustration or make you feel self-conscious. Thanks to modern medicine and new techniques, women can achieve a slim and toned body. To help women attain their rejuvenated and refreshed look, Dr. Chiddy offers the mommy makeover. The mommy makeover combines several innovative treatments, including skin tightening and liposuction. During the procedure, Dr. Chiddy will remove excess skin, reduce fat, and target different areas of the body. He can help improve the appearance of the breasts, tummy, or lower body. Essentially, Dr. Chiddy can help with any part of the body affected by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding. Additionally, he can perform nonsurgical procedures that reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation or blotchy skin. This often happens because of the rapid fluctuation and stretching of the skin, tissue, and underlying muscles.
Mommy Makeover Reviews
"I seriously can’t thank Dr. Chidester enough! Found him through an influencer on instagram. All I needed was the influencers testimonial and I knew an appt needed to be scheduled for a consultation with Dr. Chidester. The thought of having a consultation for a mommy makeover was so scary for me. Well that all changed the second I met with him in person. He’s very personable and his work is beyond amazing. A true perfectionist! I’m about 11 weeks out post mommy makeover and couldn’t be happier with my results with both full tummy tuck and breast augmentation. The staff at Chidesters office is so helpful and everyone is super sweet. Last thing I would love to rave about is how clean the office is! If you are looking for the best plastic surgeon around town Dr. Chiddy is your man!"- H.J. / Google / Aug 12, 2020
"Dr. Chidester did a fantastic job on my mommy makeover. I had a breast augmentation (375 cc), lift, galaform, internal bra, liposuction on my flanks and back, and a tummy tuck. I drove from out of town and stayed in a nearby hotel for 5 days. I say him 24 hours after surgery and on day 5 to get my drains taken out. He has great bedside manner and his nurses are amazing. By day four, I was off all of the pain meds and only used Tylenol. By day 6, I felt good enough to go in a plane ride over the Grand Canyon. I am 8 weeks post op and am still in awe with the way my scars are healing. I am back to almost all of the activities I was prior to the surgery. No doubt.... the best experience you will have!!! I have no regrets and would do it all over again with Dr. Chiddy."- B.C. / Google / Feb 18, 2021

He is meticulous and builds a plan that is specific to your anatomy to meet your goals. I am obsessed with my mommy makeover results, my body looks exactly how I envisioned it. His entire staff is top notch, and go well out of their way to ensure your comfort. I know they are busy, but they always made me feel like they were only focused on me.

Is A Mommy Makeover For You?
This treatment works well for patients who are no longer pregnant and breastfeeding and do not plan on becoming pregnant again. If you have tried to attain a tighter figure through diet and exercise with little results, a mommy makeover could provide the results you want. For many women, surgery is necessary to reclaim their pre-pregnancy shape. A mommy makeover can help with the side effects of pregnancy, such as sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted pockets of fat in the hips, thighs, lower back, and buttocks. Dr. Chiddy strives to help you slim your profile so you can resume life without worry.
What are the benefits of a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover offers many major benefits aside from helping women feel rejuvenated and refreshed. Because it involves multiple procedures, patients can target several problem areas at the same time. Achieve a trimmer waistline, flatter abdomen, and tighter breasts in just one surgery. We can even make recommendations about nonsurgical treatments to create glowing skin and reduce common signs of aging. Our mommy makeover is the best option if you want to improve your self-image and confidence moving forward.
A mommy makeover is a custom treatment that Dr. Chiddy tailors for each woman and is based on their cosmetic goals and concerns. Depending on your needs, we can combine many procedures together. This may include popular treatments, such as liposuction on the thighs, breast lift surgery, breast implants, or tummy tuck surgery. The timing of your surgery is based on how many treatments you receive so it could last around 3 – 7 hours. Before starting your procedure, Dr. Chiddy will administer general anesthesia so you remain comfortable. Also, you may need to stay overnight for careful monitoring. For additional enhancement and to rejuvenate the complexion, your treatment plan might include nonsurgical methods, like injectables.
What to Expect
After leaving the hospital, we will discharge you so you can start to recover at home with rest. Generally, recovering from this surgery is a slow process. For the first few days, you may have some difficulties standing upright. However, we will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure your incisions heal properly. Most women find that their healing takes around six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, most patients can return to a somewhat normal routine within a couple of weeks. To ensure you heal properly, patients should avoid working out for approximately two months. Once you have fully healed, the mommy makeover is a life-changing experience. It can help women love the way they look and feel again.
Mommy Makeover FAQs
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Chidester, he will listen to your concerns and goals before performing a physical examination. Following this, he can make recommendations on what should be a part of your treatment plan. Most women include a breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift) along with liposuction and a body lift.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
Childbirth and pregnancy can take a toll on your body, so nonsurgical procedures usually aren't enough to produce the results you want. In your consultation, Dr. Chidester will discuss both surgical and nonsurgical treatments. Based on your needs and goals, he will let you know if procedures like nonsurgical liposuction, vaginal rejuvenation, or nonsurgical skin tightening may be helpful.
Will I have scars?
While a mommy makeover offers a rejuvenated shape, it can leave some scarring. Dr. Chidester will make every effort possible to create clean, small incisions. Most scars that result from this surgery will be able to be hidden with undergarments or swimsuits. As part of your recovery care instructions, Dr. Chidester or a member of his team will go over scar care so your sutures heal properly.
Reclaim Your Figure
We know how difficult it can feel to try and reclaim your figure. If you experience deflated breasts, wrinkles, and other cosmetic concerns, Dr. Chiddy will help you design a custom treatment plan that addresses these issues. After developing a tailored treatment plan, Dr. Chiddy's billing team can provide information about costs and financing, such as Prosper and Mountain America Credit Union. Using the latest medical breakthroughs and surgical skills, patients can regain the look they desire. We encourage you to call our office in Draper, UT to learn more and schedule an appointment.
