5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Dr. Paul Leahy - PHENOMENAL physician in every way

Dr. Leahy is hands down an incredible physician in every way. From my first consultation, scheduling surgery, and post operative care, I felt like I was dealing with a family friend; he made me feel that comfortable. His nurse, Emmalyn, is phenomenal. She is so incredibly professional yet still personable enough to make you feel like she is a friend that wants to give you her true opinion,...

31 Yrs Old 3 Kids Breast Reduction - Leawood, KS

I have had big breasts since I was 13. I started having so much back and shoulder pain by the time I was 18. I would of gotten this procedure done earlier but never had the funds and didn't know insurance would cover it. So here I am at 31 years old and finally getting this life changing surgery done! Had my sugery done at the end of May and so far I'm pleased with my results!

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo


I had my SmartLipo today. I tried to talk myself out of it so many times. But my nurse Emmalynn kept reassuring me I was a perfect candidate n it was easy breezy. So I decided to proceed. Today was my surgery. Nervous as can be. Being Awake!!!! Not what I wanted but the pill was suppose to relax me n I hoped I would fall asleep. Sadly neither happened. Pros an Cons: Con: your awake for the...

31 Years Old with No Kids. 38DDD/38F. Leawood, KS

I have been very down on my body image my whole life because I just felt so self conscious. I met with a surgeon on Monday who I absolutely loved and he took my measurements and pictures to send it off to my...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Dr. Paul Leahy with Monarch Plastic Surgery - Kansas City

After having kids my breasts drastically changed and strongly affected my self esteem. I went to Dr. Leahy initially and had a very good experience. He explained the process in an effective manner. Allowed time for questions/concerns. He told me exactly what he recommended after I told him what I wanted. I was very hesitant about the size. I did not want to be too busty. Just wanting my "pre...

Best Decision, Best Doctor - Leawood, KS

I came to Dr. Leahy slightly skeptical and nervous to receive a breast Augmentation. He continued to surpass my expectations as a Dr as well as my experience at Monarch. He made me feel confident, comfortable and at ease with the process. This experience was a decision I will never regret with a Dr, I'll continue to support and praise. His knowledge and advice made me feel comfortable with my...

I Owe It to my Self After All I've Been Through! - Leawood, KS

I have taken the money from my savings this morning, and had my pre-op appt and all thats left is wait for Nov 5! How did I get to this point? Well for one I'm twice the age of most of you but have had the same feelings of my nose over the span of my 40 something years. It never really affected my outward confidence at least not in the traditional ways (careers, relationships) But inside - I...
