"Dr Mays and his staff are truly one of a kind and flat out AMAZING! The minute I had my first consult with him I knew I didn't need to look any further. I am 8 months post-op from lipo, breast reduction and tummy tuck. Unfortunately, I had a little setback from a large seroma several months ago that caused some elasticity problems. Dr Mays was confident my revision two weeks ago would yield the results I wanted. He was not wrong! I could not be more happy with my new look. Thank you for everything!"
"My experience with dr mays and entire team for a breast reduction was beyond any expectations. First dr mays surgery results. I feel better and look so natural. No more shoulder pain. Wish I had done it 10 years ago. Don’t hesitate with surgery go to dr mays. The office was easy to work with all pre and post op staff wonderful . Can’t says enough good about entire experience!!"
"Dr. Mays did my Mommy Makeover. I wasn’t an easy case. I have Crohn’s disease and an emergency surgery left a horrible scar down the middle of my abdomen and muscles put back together unevenly. Add in four pregnancies, it was hard to look at. Dr. Mays made me feel secure and safe. I knew I was in the absolute best hands. My surgery went perfect. I had a muscle repair, tummy tuck, and breast lift. I am so happy with my results. His work was flawless. The staff was so supportive and helped with the entire process. Anytime I had a question Dr. Mays himself was happy to respond and help with anything. I have sent/referred all of my friends and family to Mays Plastic Surgery. I wouldn’t trust anyone else. His work is truly amazing."
"I'm officially 11days post op from my extended tummy tuck, brachioplasty and breast lift(without implants) and I have to say I am so impressed. First, shout out to the wonderful staff. My husband and I love Lawanda! She's the most helpful nurse ever, making the entire experience super easy and relaxed(even when I was a difficult patient with lots of questions.) The staff at River Ridge (current surgery center) are also wonderful and gave me my best surgery experience to date. They made the whole process seamless and calmed my nerves. Then, there was the surgery and results. Dr. Mays was great to work with from the very first meeting to the last appointment. And the results he gave me -5 stars!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I personally love my new breast. I couldn't believe it when I seen them the day after surgery. I had lost over 150 lbs prior to surgery and they were so sad and saggy. He restored their youth and perkiness!! I was shocked, I really had given up hope for them. My husband's favorite part was my tummy. He couldn't believe how good it looked. He himself(down 100lbs) is considering getting a tummy tuck from Mays after seeing my results. I had done several consultations with other PS in the area before choosing Mays. At the end of the day I couldn't be happier with my decision. Now I know why he calls the OR an art studio."
"Happy with the results - recovery was easier than I imagined - I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Mays and I am so happy with my results. I’m confident he truly is the best plastic surgeon in Louisville. What really stood out to me during my consultations was how he listened to what I wanted and gave suggestions on how to get there. I felt empowered and understood throughout the entire process. Surgery day was a breeze and recovery was easier than I could have imagined with clear and easy to follow instructions. I always have felt taken care of whenever I’m in the office. I look forward to using Dr. Mays and his team for any additional cosmetic procedures! As an incentive for posting a review, this reviewer received an entry into RealSelf’s monthly $500 gift card giveaway."
"Recovery was easy and the scarring is very minimal - Dr. Mays and his stanmff are great. I recently had a breast augmentation/revision and a lip lift procedure done. I am about 4 weeks post op and overall I am really pleased with my results. Upon my consultation, I let Dr. Mays know what I disliked about my first BA performed by a different surgeon. I showed him a picutre of what I'd like my revision to look like and he was able to make a recommendation on how to get me the look I desired. My revision has given me the results I wanted. The lip lift procedure also turned out great. Recovery was easy and the scarring, which I was mildly concerned about, is VERY minimal. I am glad that I made the decision to trust Dr. Mays and his staff with my procedures."
"I am SO GLAD I found Dr. Mays and his team! I had an implant revision a little over two weeks ago after I was not happy with my results from a different surgeon and I am already so happy with my results. Dr. Mays and his staff are so welcoming and friendly. The whole team was very involved in my decision making for my revision and were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Dr. Mays may be the most laid back and friendly doctor around! I never felt rushed and he really helped me decide what I needed to do to reach my goals. My post-op nurse LaWanda is the sweetest! Their lead aesthetician, Ashley is also AMAZING! If you're interested in improving your skin, Ashley is your girl! She also takes time to listen to your skin concerns and will personalize your treatments to address those concerns. She is extremely knowledgeable in skincare and also helped me build a daily skincare regimen specific to my skin 6 months ago and my skin is better at 34 than it was in my 20's! If you're on the fence about a cosmetic surgery, go ahead and book a consult with Dr. Mays. You won't be disappointed!"
"I am honestly blown away with the care I have received from Chet Mays and his team. They are all over the top caring, understanding and make it clear that they hold no judgement. I had breast augmentation and a tummy tuck performed by Chet Mays. From consult to Post-operation I received top of the line care and results that are like a dream. It's hard to believe that this body is mine after 3 pregnancies, the last which was twins I thought I'd have to live in that skin forever. I have not had a single negative experience."
"I had breast augmentation in October and I am so pleased and thankful for my results. They look amazing my scars are barely there I had no trouble healing! Staff is amazing very thorough and welcoming! I recommend him to anyone! Thanks Dr. Mays! "
"So pleased with the results - highly recommend this doctor - I can highly recommend Dr Mays. He performed a breast reduction in 2018 for me. I have been so pleased with the results. Any scarring I had has faded nicely and no nipple sensation was lost. In fact before the reduction I had a biopsy years before that left no feeling in my right breast. That was totally restored after the breast reduction Dr Mays performed..He was very kind and made me feel very comfortable. I will be contacting him again in the future when my eyelids affect my vision. Thank you Dr Mays!"
"I'm loving my results!! Run, don't walk to see Dr Mays. I waited for years before making my decision for breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Now I wish I had pulled the trigger a long time ago. Dr Mays makes you feel so at ease and comfortable from the initial visit. You won't regret it!"
"Blown away by the care received - results are like a dream - I am honestly blown away with the care I have received at Caloaesthetics by Chet Mays and his team. They are all over the top caring, understanding and obviously make it clear that they hold no judgement. I had a breast augmentation and a tummy tuck recently (June 8th 2022). From consult to Post-operation I received top of the line care and results that are like a dream. It's hard to believe that this body is mine after 3 pregnancies, the last which was twins I thought I'd have to live in that skin forever. I have not had a single negative experience."
"I had a breast augmentation back in April with Dr. Mays & let me tell you; he is absolutely amazing! He went above & beyond my expectations! I loved my results from day 1, but they are even better now. I wanted a natural look and that’s exactly what I got. Best decision I could’ve made going to him for this surgery!! If you’re on the fence about going through with this surgery; I say go for it, & I highly recommend Dr. Mays & his staff! Not to mention, they all made me feel comfortable through the entire process. All very knowledgeable & professional."
"Could not be happier! - It was 11 months ago when I finally booked what I had been putting off for 5 years: a mommy makeover. I am currently 6-7 months and have finally decided to buckle down and write this review. In short, Dr. Mays and Calo Spa changed my life for the better.I went to what felt like every surgeon in Central KY for a consultation but once I met Dr. Calobrace (2016ish) I knew he was the best of the best. After I had my consult with him, several years passed before I thought: now is the time (2020)! When I started looking back into Dr. Calobrace I realized he had a new partner from the last time I saw him so I did my due diligence and had a consult with him also - Dr. Mays - who turned out to be equally brilliant. I ultimately booked my surgery with Dr. Mays on the same day as my consultation because I knew I was in the best hands.The next five months passed very quickly and before I knew it I was in pre-op getting marked up. I woke up and headed home not knowing exactly what to expect other than what I ready on a Tummy Tuck Facebook group (highly recommend!). I also had plenty of helpful materials regarding my recovery I received at my last pre-op appointment.Actual recovery is just a blip in my memory now but it was a bit challenging with a child at home, the mom guilt probably more so than physical recovery. I called into the office several times in my "two week" recovery span with questions and was always greeted by helpful staff. You just don't what it will be like until its you - every recovery is different but I feel like I aced mine. I did have to keep my drain in for an extra week (2 total) but I would have rather went an extra week draining and cleaning around it than to have had complications. The nurses made sure I knew what to look for if I ever had doubts about when to seek medical attention if needed. The breast lift was as low maintenance as it could get, just swapping out gauze and keeping everything clean.My healing started to really take off at day 4 and once I was able to start taking showers I felt tremendously better every day. I do recommend a walker for days 1-3 but for sure ditch it after that if you can; not having it really prompted my body to start standing straight - which in total took probably 3-4 weeks for me.I went back to work on day 17 with ease. I have a job with a mix of sitting and walking, on average about 7k steps a day at work which sounds terrible when you're recovering from being cut in two, but it actually helped a lot to prevent getting stiff. Before my surgery I lifted weights and ran regularly but I will admit it has been hard getting back into running. Lifting is fine but it was very difficult to learn to engage my core after so many years without properly being able to. I am now stronger than I've ever been and I owe it all to two things: my body/muscles being put back together and the confidence I now have in my body while working out. I no longer find myself tugging and pulling at clothes to hide the extra skin. Overall, I am more present as a wife, a mother, and in the gym.I went into this with very realistic expectations and Dr. Mays knocked them out of the park. My breast lift leaves nothing to be desired, my belly button is as natural looking as I asked for, and my tummy tuck checked every box I hoped it would. I had a small amount complementary lipo but if I could go back I would have opted for more due to where I hold weight (in my back).There was never a time, from booking my consultation to my 6 month follow up that I did not feel like Dr. Mays and his staff cared for me like family. If you're on the fence, just do it."
"Stoked! I received the service I paid for from the surgeon - So I have to say that spending this much money on myself took some pretty serious convincing. But I couldn't be happier with my decision to get a mommy makeover (breast augmentation with lift and implants, tummy tuck and liposuction, and fat transfer to the buttocks). I'm pleased even more with my decision to have Dr. Mays perform the surgery. He understood my vision of wanting to keep "the girls" looking natural, as well as my desire to remove the loose skin that there clearly was no getting rid of no matter how many hours I've spent in the gym the last two years.I will say that I met with three other surgeons while researching this procedure and didn't get the same sense of quality results that I was looking for. The staff at CaloAesthetics is amazing, but there were a couple of nurses that could work on their bedside manner. After all, you're paying a fortune. That being said, I'm still giving five stars because I received the service I paid for from the surgeon. And a couple of "bad apples" out of the dozen nurses I met with over the last two months doesn't equate to less of a review."
"Highly Recommend Dr Mays- Breast Augmentation and Mini Tummy Tuck/skin Removal - I had breast augmentation and a mini tummy tuck with Dr Mays about 18 months ago and the results were fantastic. Dr Mays really made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. He was always very considerate and polite. The ladies in the office were very friendly at all of my pre and post op appointments. My only complaint would be that after my surgery, the ladies in the surgery area made me feel rushed to get out of there (maybe because it was a Friday afternoon?), and when I let them know that I was freezing cold from being in the operating room, they didn't really respond to me or try to make me more comfortable. Maybe they were just having an "off" day. Regardless, I would highly recommend Dr Mays and his work! He has helped to give me my confidence back after three children who were all c sections!"
"First Procedure Done Was a Success. - I am a guy who was getting self conscious about my chest area after gaining some weight. I scheduled a breast reduction procedure with Dr Mays and am totally satisfied with my results. I am no longer self conscious about that. Dr Mays is a friendly and professional surgeon who made me feel comfortable and taken care of the whole time."
"My Fears Were Calmed - Highly professional yet approachable. Very skilled and knowledgeable. Dr Mays and his staff made me feel comfortable and confident that he was the right surgeon for my need. I would highly recommend him for breast revision.Updated on 29 Jul 2019:I was diagnosed with stage one breast cancer on May 24, 2018. I have a large number of relatives who have suffered from breast or ovarian cancer. Even tough I do not carry the BrCA genes, I elected to remove both breasts and do immediate reconstruction. I was able to have nipple sparing surgery and did not have to have chemotherapy or radiation therapy.My surgery was performed on July 30, 2018. The oncology surgeon removed all breast tissue and the plastic surgeon inserted tissue expanders under the muscles injecting 300 cc Of saline in each side. I spent one night in the hospital and did very well. I recovered for a couple of months and then started having injections every two weeks in the expanders. This was a very painful process. The right expander had a leak so it kept a ripple in the upper side of the breast. After several injections, the area between the breasts became very sore and bruised. The exchange surgery was November 15, 2018 as outpatient surgery. The next day I felt like the right implant was too far to the right. It felt like it was under my armpit. Follow up with the plastic surgeon was not pleasant. I told him they were too wide. He said a bra would fix it. It did not improve. When I went to the oncology surgeon for my six month follow up appointment, he looked at my breasts and asked who had done the plastic surgery. He gave me Names of two plastic surgeons who could fix my problem. I did research and chose a completely different doctor: Dr Chet Mays. He assured me that he could repair the wide pocket with popcorn capsilorrphy. He used my existing 800 cc implants. Dr Mays even removed dog ears under each arm from initial surgery and performed liposuction on my abdomen and used the fat to inject into upper poles of the breasts. The fat absorbed into the breasts after a couple weeks.Updated on 13 Aug 2019:Dr Mays did my revision in March. I’m still healing and settling Updated on 21 Aug 2019:I’m still having some tenderness at the incision site but my breasts are much softer. The right one needs to soften more. Daily massage has really helped. Updated on 26 Aug 2019:Breasts are still wide, but my frame large and my natural breasts were also pretty wide part. With a bra they have good shoe and cleavage. My six month follow up appointment is next week. Updated on 26 Aug 2019:Feeling more natural. Updated on 26 Aug 2019:"
"I have full faith and trust in Chet Mays - I found Dr. Mays through plenty of research and I am thankful I did. I was having pain with my implants and Dr. Mays and his staff explained my options and helped me with any questions I had. I ended up needing surgery to replace my implants due to the fact that both had capsular contracture and a breast lift. It has been 3 weeks since my surgery and I am happy with my results. I have had a lot of questions and concerns with my recovery, no matter who I speak to or see for my visit in the office they all know who I am and my situation. I never felt like a number when calling or visiting the office. When picking a surgeon/practice your first instinct might be cost, my suggestion is to let cost be the last driving factor on who you select to perform any procedure. Your first factors should be reputation, experience and customer reviews. I have full faith and trust in Chet Mays and CaloAesthetics Plastic Surgery Center!!!"
"I am loving my results and only wish I had the surgery by Dr Mays sooner - I had my mommy makeover (breast lift with galaflex mesh, tummy tuck and submental lipo about 5 months ago. Dr. Mays and his staff were amazing. Everyone from clinic nurses to the OR staff, to the front desk staff always greeted me with a smile. Any questions that I had where answered quickly. If you are thinking about having any cosmetic surgery, this is the place to go. I love that they have surgery onsite, and it is very private. I am loving my results and only wish I had the surgery by Dr Mays sooner. I will continue to go there for all of my plastic surgery needs."
"Highly Recommended - Dr. Mays and his staff made me feel comfortable and reassured in a scary situation (breast reduction surgery). He walked me through before, answered questions immediately after and gave me beautiful breasts!"
"Breast Implant Removal Without Lift - Last December, Dr. Mays removed my 330 cc cohesive silicone breast implants that were placed in 2003. They did not cause me any problems and still looked/felt fine. I just wanted them out. I waited until after the removal to decide whether or not I might need a lift since I am now almost 40 and they were in there a long time. For the first few months, they looked pretty deflated! But now they look pretty close to my pre-implant breasts. I could not be happier with the results!"
"Excellent experience - Dr. Mays is awesome. He is really down to earth and easy to talk too. He listens to your goals and lays all the options into the table for review. He is dedicated to his specialty and very knowledgeable. I had a great experience with my surgery. I had breast augmentation and had two previous consultations. He was so patient with me and very caring. He provides his patients with the best bed side manner and makes himself available to your needs. I would strongly recommend him and would go back to him for future surgeries if needed. If you are on the fence with improving your looks, I strongly suggest going to a consultation with him. He will help you reach your goals."
"Amazing experience! Highly recommend! - I cannot express enough how happy I have been with Dr Meys. I am three weeks out with my breast augmentation and my results are amazing. Going into his office initially not knowing exactly what I wanted. He and his staff work with you and take the time to be sure you are selecting the right implant and size. Implants are measured in cc’s, I was very concerned with wanting a natural look, not too high, not too big. They factor in everything, your height, weight, breast size & spacing, what you say you want as a result. I trusted his expertise and the results thus far are amazing. I am a tall girl (6’) so he explained that I could tolerate a larger implant when others couldn’t. I never would have thought I would go with 540cc implants but they fit my body perfectly. Trusting him was the right choice, he is the expert after all! I have attached a photo just ONE WEEK after my surgery. I took that photo on the advice of a friend who said you may need to see the progress a week apart so you don’t get freaked out. I have not taken a single picture since because I don’t need to! My breast look better and even more natural each day!!!!"
"Great Experience! - I had a bilateral breast reduction done by Dr. Mays back in March of 2017. My overall experience was great. Dr. Mays was extremely professional about the whole procedure but also made you feel comfortable about the procedure. He had amazing bedside manner and was very informative about the journey that would be the procedure and the healing process. I'm super happy to have had him as my surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone."
"19 Year Old Working Student - Louisville, KY - My experience with Doctor Mays was absolutely amazing. Dr. Mays was so very personal, kind, and did everything possible to make me feel comfortable at every consultation, and before/after surgery. I had a breast lift, and soon will be going back for augmentation, in the beginning, we planned to do both procedures at once but then dr. mays realized it would be safer for me, my breasts, and just all around if we decided to stage the surgery, in the beginning I was upset but he promised me I would be nothing less than satisfied with the lift alone... and he was right! he did an absolute amazing job on them and they turned out even better than I had hoped. Dr. Mays kept in touch with me before and after the surgery, and did everything he could to make sure I was okay. He is an overall an amazing doctor and a wonderful man and I would 10/10 reccomened to anyone!!!"
"He did a great job - it was a success! - I had a breast reduction on March,23,2017, Dr.Mays is an amazing doctor.he did a great job I am very happy with my surgery.I have wanted this surgery for twenty years,it was a success,Dr. Mays answered all of my questions explained everything to me about the procedure. His office staff is very helpful it has been a wonderful experience. Debi Cleaver"
