What is a Breast Reduction?
Abnormally large breasts can create social, functional, and physical challenges for patients. Additionally, overly large and unbalanced breasts can lead to self-confidence issues, embarrassment, and physical pain. Dr. Jerry Chidester, or Dr. Chiddy, is a plastic surgeon in Draper, UT who has helped many patients regain their confidence and live more comfortably through breast reduction surgery. Dr. Chiddy reduces excess breast tissue and skin to redefine and reshape the breasts to a more comfortable size. This surgery also reconstructs the size of the nipples and repositions them so they look natural. In most cases, Dr. Chiddy can combine a breast lift and breast reduction to provide a tighter, younger-looking appearance.
Is Breast Reduction Right For You?
If you suffer from oversized breasts that hinder your everyday life, breast reduction surgery can help you feel more comfortable. This surgery is helpful for patients who have anxiety or unable to live an active life because of the heaviness of their breasts. If you also suffer from ongoing skin issues or back pain, this surgery can help eliminate these problems. Before undergoing breast reduction surgery, patients should be at a stable weight. This will help you maintain your breast reduction results. As an expert plastic surgeon, Dr. Chiddy understands the desired outcome, and he has the training to produce natural-looking and beautiful results.

"I came from out of town to have a breast augmentation done with Dr. Chidester and it was completely worth it!! It was an amazingly good experience. He made the process as smooth and wonderful as possible, and I am so thankful! He, his nurses, anesthesiologist and other staff were all so welcoming, and incredible and immediately made me feel so comfortable, safe and confident going into surgery. My recovery was also as smooth as could be, and I am loving my results! Dr. Chidester put me at ease because throughout the entire process I could tell he was completely in his element, that I could trust him, that not only is he a great (amazing!) talented surgeon, but also a great family man of good character."- M. / Google / Oct 30, 2019
"I recently had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Chidester. I live in California so you’d think that would make things a little more difficult but it really didn’t. I was able to have a consultation beforehand and both him and his staff were always available to answer any questions I had. The surgery itself went perfectly. The facility is absolutely beautiful, and the staff put me at ease and took wonderful care of me. Recovery was so much better than I anticipated and so were my results. I was originally less than an A, and now I finally feel whole. What I was most impressed with is Dr. Chidester’s work ethic and views on plastic surgery. It’s not about vanity, it’s about making women feel beautiful on the outside as well as within. He truly treats the whole person. From the beginning of this process to the end it has exceeded all expectations. I am so happy I chose Dr. Chidester!"- E.D. / Google / Apr 30, 2019
"These ratings speak for themselves... and if you doubt them, make a consult and see for yourself!!! I literally could not be happier with the way my breast augmentation turned out! Dr Chidester is amazing at what he does- you can tell he is very passionate about it and meticulous. Two things to really look for in a cosmetic surgeon! Even though I work at the U and would get a huge discount on cosmetic surgery, it wasn’t really something I was willing to bargain with. So, I really did my research, started looking up a ton of cosmetic surgeons in the area, looking at their before/afters. These google reviews helped me, and I hope they help you too, whoever you are, considering some type of surgery for yourself :) During my first consult he really took the time to dive in deep and answer my questions and address my concerns. Dr Chidester, Mindee and the entire staff make you feel welcome and comfortable through the whole process, and dispel any feelings of embarrassment or self-consciousness. They are just truly open-arms-happy-for-you kind of people! But besides that, Dr Chidester is an artist and I knew I was in such great hands. Surgery day went so smoothly, and for that I was so grateful! I was really struggling with the size I wanted, and so I showed him pictures of the kind of look I was going for, and told him what I wanted. He could NOT have done it more perfectly. Thank you, Jerry!! Currently sending all of my friends and coworkers to you :)"- A.S. / Google / Aug 30, 2019
"I just got a breast augmentation done on Monday. Dr. Chidester and his staff was simply amazing. He makes you feel so comfortable and never seemed annoyed with all of my questions. I am so happy with my results and I would recommend him 1000 times to anyone look for plastic surgery. Thank you so much Dr. Chidester!! You are incredible!"- L.M. / Google / Dec 30, 2019
Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure and is completed with general anesthesia. The amount of time needed for your surgery is dependent on several factors, including the incision type, technique, and the amount of excess breast tissue. Additionally, repositioning the nipple and areola will increase the amount of time. Typically, Dr. Chiddy uses liposuction to reduce fat and tissue, which helps decrease breast size. During your consultation, we will address all of these factors, including incision types and scarring. Patients will experience some scarring, but with Dr. Chiddy's advanced surgical skills and precise techniques, he can decrease visibility. Depending on the difficulty of your reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision is made. After making the incision, Dr. Chiddy will remove the excess breast tissue and tighten the skin.
What to Expect
After completing your surgery, we will carefully monitor you in our private recovery room. Once we have discharged you, you can return home to start your recovery. Patients may experience some swelling and bleeding after the surgery. To help your body heal, Dr. Chiddy inserts a thin tube for draining near the surgical site. Additionally, you will need to wear a medical sports bra for several days. This will improve blood flow to the breasts during the initial healing process. In a month or so, the breasts will settle and the side effects will subside. Following the procedure, most of our patients love their results and feel more comfortable, self-assured, and happy. To ensure your results are long-lasting, please keep in mind that you will need to maintain a healthy weight.
With cosmetic breast surgery, Dr. Chiddy has helped many patients achieve a more active lifestyle. During your consultation at our office in Draper, UT, Dr. Chiddy will discuss all of your procedure options and create a custom treatment plan. Once he has created a plan, a member from his team will discuss the cost of your breast reduction, and if needed, we offer financing through Prosper, CareCredit, and Mountain America Credit Union. There's no reason to continue accepting the lack of confidence or discomfort that can accompany large breasts. Located near the Greater Salt Lake City area, we welcome you to call our office in Draper, UT to learn more about breast reduction surgery.
