"Did you know Dr. Chisester is also a reconstructive hand surgeon and hand specialist? My father was having major trouble with his hands for over a year. I direct messaged Dr. Chisester on Instagram and not only did HE respond, he took time to explain things my dad could do until he was able to get an appointment. My dad expressed how much he loved Dr. C during his appointments. He has amazing bed aide manner, an amazing staff, and truly cares about his patients, their happiness and really makes sure he provides stellar service! My dad was so happy with with him that I know for a fact if I ever chose plastic surgery or need a hand specialist he’s the only doctor I would contact and the only doctor I will recommend! Do yourself a favor and get on his books ASAP!!! Thank you Dr. Chidester and staff!!"- C.S. / Google / Jun 24, 2020

"Dr Chidester and his team are hands down the best. Worth the wait, get on a list. I am so happy with his work and expertise. He also found a hernia and repaired it while fixing my abdominal separation. I’m so grateful he would take the time to do that. I always felt I was in the best of hands. His PA Meg is so sweet and calming too."- M.K. / Google / Feb 25, 2021
"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
"Dr. Chidester removed a large bump that had been growing for the last six years on the back of my hand, directly beneath my pinky and ring fingers. If I hit that bump accidently on anything, I got a sharp pain that shot up from the bump up to my elbow, not a pleasant thing to go through. I had seen two doctors about the bump, and the only thing they offered up was to drain it, and warned me that it would start filling up with fluid again, especially "at my age"! This was not the case with Dr. Chidister, he examined the bump and said that he could remove it in just a few minutes, but it had to be done at Lone Peak Hospital because of Covid restrictions. The hospital and staff there are amazing! Well, the surgery was done, and I was out of there in just a few hours. On the third day after surgery I accidentally hit my hand on something, and I waited for the pain but there was none! I had not been in any pain, AT ALL my hand was tender where the bump used to be, but NO PAIN, I never even had to take as aspirin! I'm so blessed to have been guided to Dr. Chidester, he is an amazing doctor, he must have hand picked his staff because EVERY one I came in contact with, was friendly, outgoing, and professional. DR. CHIDESTER AND STAFF, YOU ARE THE BEST! Thank you all for taking care of me I'm thrilled to have had you all on my team! P.S. That bump turned out to be a tumor...no cancer!"- K.F. / Google / Feb 13, 2021
Is A Vaginoplasty For You?
During your consultation, we can determine if vaginoplasty works well for you. Dr. Chiddy will discuss your age, medical history, and cosmetic goals so he can design a personalized treatment plan. You may benefit from a vaginoplasty if you:
- Wish to increase your sexual satisfaction
- Want to restore your self-confidence and sexuality
- Avoid wearing tight or revealing clothing, like bathing suits
- Suffer from pain or soreness during sex or other sexual activity
- Fear that your vaginal muscles did not recover after childbirth
- Feel you may have a naturally large vaginal opening
- Suffer from vaginal laxity
- Received an episiotomy during childbirth
During a vaginoplasty, Dr. Chiddy removes the excess vaginal lining and tightens the remaining soft tissues and muscles. Vaginoplasty is performed in our private AAAASF-accredited surgical facility with general anesthesia. At the beginning of your surgery, Dr. Chiddy places incisions on the sides of the vagina. After placing the incisions in a discreet area, he will tighten the muscle beneath the skin. Next, the vagina opening is reduced in size by removing some of the vaginal lining. Patients can also combine a labiaplasty with this procedure. If needed, a labiaplasty is performed right after your vaginoplasty and helps reduce the size of your labia minora and majora. Once your surgery is complete, Dr. Chiddy carefully closes the incisions.
What to Expect
Right after your procedure, you may experience some discomfort and pain, such as bruising and swelling. For about 4 – 6 weeks, Dr. Chiddy recommends avoiding sexual intercourse, stopping tampon use, and minimizing strenuous activities. Typically, after about a week, you can resume work that allows you to sit. However, it takes about three months until you have fully recovered. After recovering from vaginoplasty, you will have a rejuvenated vaginal opening that looks and feels better. Additionally, some patients report heightened sensitivity during sexual intercourse.
