My Mommy Makeover Surgery Experience with Dr. Cherny at the Heartland Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Center in Des Moines, IA.
I’m a mother of three children and what happened to me is what often happens to women in their late 30’s after giving birth to children, my breasts and stomach were starting to loosen up and show signs of stretch marks. At first, I didn’t let it bother me, but even with hard work in the gym, I saw no drastic changes. My family was supportive but I knew that they had started to notice my belly, and I became very self-conscious about it. Some of my friends had mentioned plastic surgery to me several times, but at first, I would end the conversation immediately because I could not see myself going through with it. However, as time went on, I engaged in longer conversations about cosmetic surgery. Then, following an afternoon of socializing with friends over a few drinks, I was told about Heartland Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and a brochure somehow ended up on my table (Thanks Jessica).
As I began to read the information I found it very informative, interesting and refreshing; there were so many women in my exact situation and it immediately helped me feel much less alone in the world! The brochure briefly described several procedures and the “Mommy Makeover” was the surgery that stuck out to me the most. What sold me was not the pamphlet; it was a decision within me that I wanted to feel better emotionally, physiologically and most of all, physically! I decided I was going to call HPS the next day. I also decided that I was going to talk it over with my family about getting the Mommy Makeover; I was glad that they understood and respected my decision.
I called them for a consultation, it was for the following Monday and honestly, to say that I was nervous would be a serious understatement! That being said, they were wonderful to deal with and I felt no pressure from the consulting nurse as well as Dr. Cherny, who, in fact, would be doing the surgery. He did seem very friendly, authentic and extremely knowledgeable. He let me ask as many questions as I wanted which he answered thoroughly and very informatively.
On the day of the surgery, it wasn’t like being in the hospital at all, I felt at ease, but I still must have asked them a million questions! What if things didn’t go correctly? My mind was racing! But very soothingly they were calm and relaxed the whole time, which allowed me to feel the same way.
Now that I’ve healed up following the surgery I can honestly say that I don’t think my body has looked this good since I was in college! Seriously, I am not kidding! Gone are the days when I rushed to put on my bra or when I got dressed and avoided looking in the mirror, or didn’t want to put on a bikini for the pool or beach. I’m ecstatically pleased with what I see and how well the surgery went!
Not only are my breasts beautiful again, but my stomach looks great even after all the pregnancies. I mean, literally love it! My stomach is tight again for the first time in a long time. The best part is, there are no super noticeable scars and my husband, to say the least, is very pleased as well! He can’t keep his hands off me now! My friends can’t stop commenting on how good I look too!
Thank you so much to Dr. Cherny and everyone at Heartland Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Des Moines, Iowa for helping me bring back my self-confidence. It has made a hugely positive impact on every aspect of my work, family and social life! Thank you again!

Before I end, I must say that, in my opinion, you won’t find a better Des Moines Plastic Surgeon! I did plenty of research beforehand, which is why I went with them in the first place, and my personal experience confirmed my findings. And I love the staff – so fun and friendly! :)
