Dr. Levi Young: Practicing the Art of Cosmetic Surgery

By  0 Comments

Dr. Levi Young at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery in Overland Park, Kansas, has enjoyed superb recognition for his impressive cosmetic surgery expertise. In addition, he’s been commissioned to produce gorgeous original artwork for local clients. But now he has added surgical volunteer to his already impressive resume.

Dr. Young recently returned from a trip to Africa as part of his backing for the Medical Missions Foundation. While he’s supported the nonprofit for several years through donations and silent auction artwork, this was his first medical mission trip. During his week in the country of Uganda, he and the other volunteers performed more than two dozen surgeries, most of them on children. The teams repaired and restored function to contracted neck scars, eyelids scarred open and multiple arm and leg contractures that prevented the use of those extremities. Many small children could not use their hands due to scar contractions.

Compassionate Hands
“The most significant cases were a young girl whose burns to her face had disfigured her left eye, mouth and neck. She could not close that one eye or fully move her neck due to her injuries,” noted Dr. Young. “A similar case in an adult woman who had seized and fallen face-first into a fire (and) had open burns to her scalp down to the skull as well as eyelid scarring, which prevented the eye from closing. In both cases, I was able to close the wounds, release the eyelids and place skin grafts, restoring the eyelid closure and dramatically improving the disfigurement. There was such a fulfillment to be able to serve these wonderful people in such a life-changing way.”

Here in the Kansas City area, Dr. Young specializes in a wide range of cosmetic procedures from breast augmentation, abdominoplasty and mommy makeovers to breast lifts, rhinoplasty, facelifts and eyelift surgery. As a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Young has been recognized with the Ten Best Client Satisfaction Award for the years 2015 through 2019 from the American Institution of Plastic Surgeons. He has been voted one of the top three Plastic Surgeons in the greater Kansas City area by Pitch Weekly the Best of KC, selected Top Doctor for Patient Reviews, honored as a Top Doctor in Overland Park. In addition, he has been recognized by the acclaimed website RealSelf for his outstanding contributions to its community. Dr. Young is one of only 500 doctors across the nation to receive this prestigious award. RealSelf is the leading online community helping people make confident choices in cosmetic procedures.

Sole Focus
Dr. Young is a lifelong Kansas City resident, who obtained his medical education in this community. He holds a Board Certification in Plastic Surgery. “I am the only doctor that’s my age in a Kansas City-metro private practice doing 100 percent cosmetic surgery, which means no reconstructive surgery,” Dr. Young remarked. “I have a higher volume of cosmetic surgery on a more consistent basis. I do 150 breast augmentations every year and that gives me an incredible advantage. Because I do them more often, I’m able to achieve more consistent and excellent results. It’s a solid foundation of experience and knowledge to share with my patients.”

Dr. Young’s amazing cosmetic surgery results are driven in part by his impressive artistic ability. He’s been commissioned by clients to create one-of-a-kind artwork, including an Einstein portrait for a KC-metro business owner. He shares it’s exciting to have his artistic creations displayed in a local company.

Vision and Art
It’s this incredible artistic ability that strengthens and enhances Dr. Young’s surgical abilities on the operating table. His creative eye enables patients to achieve better results. “My artistic nature lends me the ability to analyze each patient and develop the best plan for the desired outcome,” he noted. “It’s an incredible asset in the operating room, enabling me to see and create the best  aesthetic results.”

Dr. Young is truly a unique cosmetic surgeon for patients in this community and those across the world. He brings nationally recognized talent for surgical care, a highly skilled artistic eye and an amazing sense of caring for others to his craft.
