Rhinoplasty performed at our Kansas City, Missouri plastic surgery center refines the shape of the nose in a number of different ways – straightening, removing bumps, reshaping the tip, or reducing projection or length. Rhinoplasty can make a nose larger or smaller, refine the shape of the bridge, tip, or nostrils, and correct for crookedness, injuries, and breathing abnormalities that arise due to problems with the internal structures of the nose. Having rhinoplasty can increase your confidence and improve the balance and proportion of your face. The rhinoplasty procedure can be performed to produce either a dramatic change or more subtle enhancement. This level of customization makes rhinoplasty an extremely popular treatment choice among patients at our Kansas City practice.

During your rhinoplasty consultation at our practice serving Kansas City and Liberty, Missouri, Dr. Thompson will meet with you to review your personal appearance goals and determine if you are an appropriate candidate for rhinoplasty.
Facelift at our Kansas City, Missouri cosmetic surgery center is always customized to meet the unique needs of each patient. Facelift is a surgical procedure performed to tighten the lower face and neck. Sun exposure, weight fluctuation, and the natural aging process make skin loosen and sag, resulting in wrinkles and jowls. Aging also reduces certain areas of fat, such as on the sides of the chin and over the lateral cheek bone area; in other areas there is an increase of fat, such as under the chin (neck), jowls and along the nasolabial fold. These changes are addressed with a facelift. The facial skeleton also changes with aging leading to a larger orbit and retrusion of the maxilla (upper Jaw structure). Fat grafting can help camouflage these bony changes. The muscles on the neck can slacken, too, causing you to look years older than your real age. These muscles are sometimes sutured to create a tighter neck. Facelift smoothes wrinkles and folds to create a new youthful appearance.

During this appointment, Dr. Thompson will determine if you are a candidate for facelift surgery and will help you understand the results you can expect to achieve through the facelift procedure.
Blepharoplasty is routinely performed in our Kansas City, Missouri, cosmetic surgery center. Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, is surgery performed around the eye area that results in a more youthful looking, attractive appearance. For some patients, blepharoplasty is only needed on the upper eyelids, or only on the lower eyelids. Other patients may require both upper and lower blepharoplasty procedures to achieve their desired results. During your blepharoplasty consultation at our Kansas City center, Dr. Thompson will meet with you to review your goals and help determine the treatment options that are best suited to your needs.
If you have droopy eyelids, puffiness directly below your eyes, or fine, papery wrinkles around your eyes, talk to us about blepharoplasty, available in Kansas City and Liberty, Missouri at Genesis Plastic Surgery. Please contact our cosmetic surgery center to schedule a consultation.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a popular choice at our Kansas City, Missouri center. This treatment is ideal for softening facial lines and wrinkles caused by hyper contraction of underlying muscles. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections soften the frown lines between the eyebrows and smooth out the crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes. The BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is extremely convenient and can typically be completed during your lunch hour. There is no downtime, so patients can return to their normal activities right away. The results of BOTOX® Cosmetic are evident after a few days, and your appearance will continue to improve for up to a month, with results lasting for up to four months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can improve your appearance quickly, safely, and easily.

Perlane® and Restylane®, available in Kansas City, Missouri at Genesis Plastic Surgery, are excellent solutions to concerns such as thin lips and wrinkles.

We are pleased to offer the Kansas City community the option of facial rejuvenation with Radiesse™. Recently FDA approved, Radiesse™ is a long lasting injectable filler used to reduce facial wrinkles and folds. Radiesse™ is frequently used to fill the nasolabial and marionette folds – the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth and then down toward the chin – so that your face looks younger. Radiesse™ is also used to contour other facial areas, such as the cheeks and chin.
Artefill® is another filler used for improving prominent facial wrinkles and folds. Artefill® treatment has a duration of 12 to 18 months.
Fat atrophy of the face inevitably develops in certain facial areas as we age. This loss of fat increases skin laxity, deep folds, visibility of the orbital bones under the eyes and a hallowness of cheeks, and overall tired look. Adding volume and firmness to the face significantly improves these signs of aging.
One way to add volume is Sculptra®. Sculptra® is an injectable synthetic form of poly-l-lactic acid, a compound naturally present in the body. There have been no reported allergic reactions or adverse systemic effects since its use began in 2004.
Sculptra® is injected by a small needle into the deep layers of the skin. Around these tiny micro beads of poly-l-lactic acid, the body forms fibroblasts which produce new collagen. New collagen is produced slowly over a period of four to six weeks. Three to four injection sessions may be required to achieve desired results. Sculptra® has a very long duration, lasting 2 years or more.
A natural volume restoring material is your own fat. Moving fat from an area of excess to areas of needs has been done since 1897. Fat grafting to the face seems to improve the overlying skin appearance, perhaps due to stem cells which are found in fat. Fat grafting is used in the face, buttocks, and breast.
If the skin under your chin or on your neck has begun to slacken or sag, you might be a good candidate for a neck lift. Neck lift, performed at our Kansas City, Missouri, cosmetic surgery center, is a surgical method of removing excess fat and surplus skin from the neck and chin areas, and carefully lifting and tightening the remaining skin and underlying muscles. This procedure can reduce or eliminate the undesirable “turkey neck” look, and leaves your skin taught and toned.
To improve the appearance the of the face along with the neck, neck lift is often combined with a facelift at our Kansas City practice. To find out if neck lift or facelift is right for you, please contact Genesis Plastic Surgery in Kansas City, Missouri today!
Chin implants, prosthetic forms surgically placed in the chin, can improve the contour of the face and give more definition to its middle and lower portions, bringing facial features into better proportion, harmony, and balance. A strong chin can build your confidence and self-esteem.
At Genesis Plastic Surgery in Kansas City, Missouri, chin implant is often combined with rhinoplasty to bring an overall balance to the face. Dr. Thompson will help you decide if a chin implant or rhinoplasty procedure is right for you. For more information about chin implant or rhinoplasty, please contact our cosmetic surgery center in Kansas City today!
Laser "light" can precisely remove layers of skin. These devices can be adjusted for a deep, fractional (a percentage of surface) or micro settings, there by altering the healing period.
Laser peels remove fine wrinkles and superficial pigmentation, and smooth away scars. Deep laser peels moderately tighten the skin. Most superficial laser peels (micro peels) have no or minimal down time and the procedure is conveniently performed in our Kansas City, Missouri, plastic surgery facility. A laser peel treatment can improve pigmentation problems due to sun exposure, acne blemishes, and uneven skin tone. After treatment, skin is tightened and the appearance of wrinkles and other unwanted blemishes are reduced or eliminated.
When deep lines are present, laser peel may be combined with BOTOX® Cosmetic and Restylane®. At our Kansas City, Missouri, practice, your treatment plan is customized to your individual needs to ensure the best possible results. Please contact Genesis Plastic Surgery today to learn more.
Skin laxity that develops with aging can be improved with Thermage®, also known as Thermacool™; a procedure which is non invasive with no down time. Thermage® treatment is useful for a modest tightening and firming of the skin without surgery. It is not meant to replace face lift surgery because the results are not as long lasting or as dramatic. If you don't want the down time of surgery but still want a tighter, firmer, less wrinkled looking face, Thermage® may be the best option. Thermage can also be used for skin tightening of the abdomen, thighs, and breast.
Thermage® uses safe radio frequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin and underlying tissue. This uniform heating of the deep layer of the skin causes the collagen, a structural protein, to change. This is followed by a gradual replacement of the collagen with new collagen. It is this build up of new collagen which tightens the skin.
The procedure takes an hour for full face and neck treatment, but two hours for abdomen. There is some mild discomfort with the procedure, which is adjusted to each person's tolerance. After the procedure there is some minimal swelling and redness which fades over a few hours. Make-up may be applied immediately after the treatment. You will be given an oral pain medication prior to treatment. For most patients the tightening and firming improves gradually over two to six months, although some patients see an earlier response. These results may last for up to two years.
A single treatment has produced noticeable results in a significant number of patients, however, the number and frequency of your treatments is tailored to meet your skin condition needs and your desired results.
Light chemical peels, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments, micro laser peels, and skin care products by Skinceuticals are some of the many skin care treatments we offer at our Kansas City, Missouri, plastic surgery practice to help reduce unwanted lines and wrinkles.

We are pleased to introduce the thread lift procedure at our Kansas City, Missouri, practice. The thread lift, using barbed Contour Threads™, has a niche for facial rejuvenation. It provides some subtle improvement for sagging facial appearance with very limited scarring, post-procedure healing, and risk.
This improvement in facial appearance is more dramatic than seen with Thermage®, but is not the equivalent of a facelift. A thread lift has only 20 to 30 percent of the effect a typical facelift provides. These non-absorbable clear sutures can be used to lift a low eyebrow position, raise cheeks and jowls, and tighten loose neck tissue. They are best suited for those in their thirties to fifties with early signs of aging.
For extensive changes in the facial appearance of older individuals with more advanced signs of age, a surgical facelift is required. The thread lift can be performed under a local anesthetic or a general anesthetic. Bruising and swelling following a thread lift usually lasts about five to seven days. The thread lift procedure is frequently combined with other procedures such as blepharoplasty, liposuction, and laser procedures.
Thread lifts can be done years after a regular facelift for touch-up tightening in small areas of the face. This extends the effect of the surgical lift by several years.
Patients in their thirties to fifties can slow the effects of aging, regain a younger looking face, and delay the need for a facelift by treating the skin from the inside out. This is done by combining several modalities such as:
Thermage® to build new collagen that tightens and firms the face.
Thread lifts for tightening problem areas around the eyes, jowls, cheeks and neck.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and facial fillers for lines and facial fullness.
Laser and IPL to smooth out the complexion.
Use good skin care products, antioxidants, sunblocks, and retinoic acid to prevent new damage to the skin.
