Cellulite Treatment in Leawood and 3 Other Procedures You Are Curious About–Here at Associated Plastic Surgeons in Leawood we offer a number of services. Some of these services are probably procedures you have heard about but are unsure of what they are called. We are going to look at some of the terms and discuss procedures that are offered for surgery as well as in our med spa in Leawood.

First let’s take a look at the surgical side of the practice and discuss a few things you may not be too familiar with. You probably know the name of the procedure but do you know what is called in medical terms?


Abdominoplasty in Leawood Better Known as A “Tummy Tuck”

Lots of women don’t like the way their stomach looks in a swimsuit and have stretchmarks or other things that just don’t sit right.

Multiple pregnancies, significant weight loss, or the natural aging process may have left you longing for a firm, smooth midsection. While exercise can burn fat and tone muscles, it cannot get rid of loose skin and stretch marks, or repair separated abdominal muscles. At Associated Plastic Surgeons, our experienced plastic surgeons can renew your abdominal area with abdominoplasty in Leawood, often called a tummy tuck.


Why Choose Abdominoplasty in Leawood?

Our surgeons personalize each abdominoplasty in Leawood to address the unique needs and goals of the patient. In general, this procedure can provide one or a combination of the following benefits:

  • Remove loose, stretched skin and excess belly fat
  • Repair stretched, separated abdominal muscles that cause a tummy bulge
  • Provide a firmer, smoother abdominal profile
  • Renew body image and confidence

Rhinoplasty in Leawood or a Nose Job

You have probably heard the term “nose job” many times. However, rhinoplasty in Leawood covers a wide range of different procedures that include a cosmetic enhancement but that is not what a nose job in Leawood is limited to.

What Is Rhinoplasty in Leawood?

Rhinoplasty is a specialized surgery of the nose that may improve its appearance and proportion to enhance facial harmony and confidence. Rhinoplasty in Leawood has surgeons that may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose. If you desire a more symmetrical nose, keep in mind that everyone’s face is asymmetric to some degree. Because the goal of most rhinoplasty procedures is to create facial balance, your results may not be completely symmetrical.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty in Leawood

Sometimes informally called a “nose job in Leawood” by our patients, rhinoplasty can:

  • Enhance your facial balance, thereby improving your overall appearance
  • Correct structural defects in the nose, allowing you to breathe easier
  • Eliminate visible humps or depressions on the bridge of your nose
  • Improve the symmetry of your nose

It can include, but is not limited to, your stomach, legs, back, buttocks, arms, and even under your jawline. Relatively all areas of the body can have fatty tissue, and particularly areas with “fat rolls” are the most common spots for people who use CoolSculpting Elite in Leawood.

Benefits of CoolSculpting in Leawood

Many patients who want a more toned physique choose CoolSculpting® Elite treatment as an alternative to liposuction surgery in Overland Park. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes unwanted fat, whereas CoolSculpting in Leawood requires no incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.


CoolSculpting in Leawood isn’t for weight reduction; it is designed for those who want to:

Radio Frequency Microneedling in Leawood


There are many skin enhancement products and procedures on the market today. One procedure that is gaining momentum is radio frequency microneedling in Leawood. Microneedling is when the skin is poked with tiny, sterilized needles, which causes the body to make more collagen and elastin. Many of the best Kansas City plastic surgeons credit both collagen and elastin for healing the skin and making it appear younger.

Radiofrequency microneedling has the benefit of two different treatments in one. It is a powerful combination. First, it uses a tiny device to make microscopic holes in your skin. Your body will then respond to these microtraumas, sending fresh blood rich with white blood cells and making you produce collagen. Next, radio frequency works by warming the outer skin to speed up the production of collagen. Radiofrequency microneedling in Leawood puts these together by delivering radio frequency energy deep into your skin.

At Associated Plastic Surgeons, we can do a quick consultation first to make sure you are a perfect candidate for this procedure.

We have discussed a number of frequently misunderstood and interchangeable words related to both the services offered by our Overland Park cosmetic surgeons and our Leawood Med Spa. Please get in touch if you have questions about anything mentioned.
