Liposuction, performed in Kansas City, Missouri, at our cosmetic surgery facility, is an effective method of reducing accumulations of fat in specific areas of the body. While it is not a substitute for overall weight loss, liposuction is effective at removing stubborn pockets of fat that are not responding to a reasonable diet and exercise program. Liposuction results in a more defined and sculpted body contour and a reduction of body fat.
At Genesis Plastic Surgery in Kansas City, Missouri, we use liposuction to create a more proportional shape for both men and women. Liposuction is an effective method to remove “love handles” or the fat that has accumulated around the waist and “saddle bags” or fat that has accumulated around the hips and thighs. Liposuction is also used to remove excess fat in the knees, calves and ankles.
Liposuction can slim the face by removing fat in the cheek, neck and jowl areas. When liposuction is used to remove fatty deposits in the face, the procedure is often combined with other facial procedures such as facelift, to prevent the face from having a sagging appearance. Patients who undergo liposuction of the face at our Kansas City, Missouri, facility consult thoroughly with Dr. Thompson beforehand to determine which combination of treatments will give the best results.
Liposuction of the abdomen can be combined with an abdominoplasty (also known as “tummy tuck”) when it is likely there will be excess or sagging skin in the abdominal area after the liposuction procedure. In Kansas City, Dr. Thompson can advise you as to which cosmetic surgery procedures will provide you with results that will best meet your expectations.
Liposuction at our Kansas City, Missouri, practice is performed on an outpatient basis. Medications or anesthesia are administered for patient comfort during and after the liposuction procedure. After liposuction, the area is usually bruised and swollen for a few days, so the results of the procedure may not be immediately evident. Follow-up care including ultrasound treatments are provided for liposuction patients at our Kansas City, Missouri, plastic surgery facility.
Liposuction results will be evident once the bruising and swelling begins to subside. Depending on the body area that underwent the liposuction procedure, the results are typically a more contoured and less fatty appearance. With a healthy diet and exercise, liposuction results can be maintained for a long time.

Abdominoplasty or “Tummy Tuck” and Mini-Abdominoplasty
Abdominoplasty, also known as “ tummy tuck,” is performed in Kansas City, Missouri, at the plastic surgery facility of Dr. Thompson. Abdominoplasty is one of the most widely recognized of all plastic surgery procedures. Tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat in the abdominal area and tightens the abdominal wall.
Abdominoplasty is not a substitute for overall weight loss, but works well for people who are of normal weight yet carry excess fat and skin in their abdominal area that refuses to respond to a healthy diet and exercise program. Abdominoplasty is especially helpful for women who have stretched abdominal skin or lost muscle tone due to pregnancy.
Depending on the patient’s body shape, the abdominoplasty procedure may be combined with liposuction to provide the patient with a result as close as possible to the patient’s desires. Dr. Thompson will consult with you regarding abdominoplasty and liposuction combined with abdominoplasty at our Kansas City, Missouri, cosmetic surgery center and help you determine the best method to reach your goals.
Abdominoplasty usually takes between two and three hours to complete, depending on the size of the abdominal excess. After the tummy tuck procedure, the abdominal area may be tender and swollen for awhile. Once the swelling subsides the results of the tummy tuck will become evident.
After the abdominoplasty, most patients experience a more toned, tightened, flatter abdominal area. With proper diet and exercise, tummy tuck results can last a long time. To learn more about tummy tuck at our center serving Kansas City and Liberty, Missouri, please contact us today!
Mini-abdominoplasty is a procedure used to remove fat and tighten skin in the lower abdominal region only, as opposed to the entire abdominal region that is treated with an abdominoplasty. Mini-abdominoplasty works well for those who have a slight “pooch” or a small, localized area of fat between the belly button and the pubic area.
Mini-abdominoplasty is similar to abdominoplasty, but involves smaller incisions, takes less time to complete, and recovery time is lessened, and there is less scarring. The results of mini-abdominoplasty are similar to abdominoplasty. At our center serving Kansas City and Liberty, Missouri, Dr. Thompson will help you determine if an abdominoplasty or mini-abdominoplasty is the best procedure to meet your goals.
Body contouring is the reshaping of the body’s problem areas and is a modern approach to cosmetic enhancement. Body contouring is performed at our Kansas City, Missouri, cosmetic surgery facility, and typically involves one or more cosmetic surgery procedures such as thigh lifts, buttock lifts, brachioplasty, liposuction, abdominoplasty, breast lift, or breast augmentation.
Whether it’s a flatter stomach, the removal of surplus skin following a major loss of weight, or more defined legs and thighs you envision, body contouring can help you achieve the results you desire. The benefits of body contouring are the elimination of excess fat and skin and an overall improvement in your body’s tone and contour.
Fat grafting is a process whereby fat is removed via liposuction from an area of excess and placed in an area where added volume is needed. It has two beneficial effects; the enhanced (grafted) area and the reduced (liposuction) area. Areas that are fat grafted include buttocks, lips, cheeks, breasts, and contour deformities.
It may seem such a small problem in an out of the way location, yet it prevented her from making a marital commitment. This was a complaint of a young lady who had developed embarrassing long, redundant labia minora and was seeking help. Some small intimate and very private problems have a pronounced effect on well being and a sense of fitness. In addition to congenital labial deformities, there can be enlargement and tearing due to childbirth and aging. These problems may limit certain pursuits, cause excess moisture, pinching and pain with sex and athletics, and limit clothing choices. Labiaplasty is a minor surgery where the labia are reduced in size and re-contoured. This procedure can be performed privately with either a general or local anesthetic at Genesis Plastic Surgery.
