Motherhood is one of the most rewarding experiences a woman can have, but it can also bring physical changes that may leave some moms feeling self-conscious, says Louisville, KY board certified plastic surgeon Chet Mays, MD. One way he helps moms find their way back to feeling like themselves again is by giving them the power of choice, he says. “A Mommy Makeover is an excellent option to help restore both your body and confidence after childbirth. It’s really empowering to be able to achieve the results you envision and I’m proud to be the surgeon that can make that happen for so many patients.”

A Mommy Makeover typically includes a combination of procedures such as a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction. These procedures can address the physical changes brought about by pregnancy, breastfeeding, and childbirth. However, the success of a Mommy Makeover depends heavily on the surgeon’s skill, experience, and ability to work with patients to achieve their desired outcome.

“I take great pride that they chose me to be that person to help them with this thing that’s bothered them,” he says. “I don’t look at people and see what would make them look better. I only begin to envision what needs to be done when they say, ‘I don’t like this about my body,’ or, ‘It used to look like this.’ That’s when I get excited and engaged and that’s what allows me the artistic freedom to do what I do.”

To get the best Mommy Makeover results, Dr. Mays understands the importance of patient satisfaction and works closely with patients to determine their specific needs and goals. “By giving them the power of choice and meeting their expectations, I can create a personalized treatment plan that addresses their individual concerns and produces the results they see in their minds.”

The first step, he says, is to have a thorough consultation. “During our consultation, we will discuss aesthetic goals and expectations and determine which procedures would be best suited to achieve the desired outcome. Patients that come to me give me the artistic freedom to change those things that they’re most insecure about. I respect when they share their story of weight loss or changes in life or how they have wanted to do this for so long and are finally taking that next step.”

Listening to patient concerns and answering questions helps them feel comfortable expressing their desires. “This open communication helps build trust, which is essential for these beautiful, transformative outcomes,” adds the surgeon.

“I’ve always told people you have to write your own story, don’t let others write it for you,” says Dr. Mays. “This step is part of writing that story and I’m happy to help others create a new chapter in their lives.”
