About Dr. Paul Leahy

Dr. Leahy grew up in the Kansas City area and comes from three generations of physicians. He attended Rockhurst High School, received an undergraduate degree from the University of Kansas, and earned a graduate degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He then completed medical school at the University of Kansas Medical Center and remained there for a six-year residency in plastic surgery.

Along with Monarch’s team of doctors, nurses, aestheticians, and support staff, Dr. Leahy can provide care in all aspects of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. Cosmetic procedures that are particularly interesting to him include breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and a variety of in-office procedures (done under local anesthesia) such as eyelid and facial rejuvenation (Monarch Mini-Lift) and Smartlipo.

The reconstructive procedures that Dr. Leahy finds most rewarding are breast reconstruction after cancer, managing skin cancer defects on the face, and facial fractures. Surgery of the hand is also a significant portion of Dr. Leahy’s practice such as traumatic injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, and Dupuytren’s disease (contraction of the palm and fingers).

Dr. Leahy is known for having a very personal and comforting style. He will take time to help you understand your problem, along with the pros and cons of each treatment option in order to best meet your goals.

Dr. Leahy was selected by his peers as an outstanding practicing physician in the Kansas City area. Following an extensive nomination and evaluation process conducted by MSP Communications, the results of this research were published in Kansas City Super Doctors®, a special section featured in the January 2015 issue of KC Magazine.

Dr. Paul Leahy, one of the surgeons at Monarch Plastic Surgery, discusses the different breast procedures available to patients. The three common breast procedures include:

  • Breast reduction
  • Breast reconstruction
  • Breast augmentation

He explains the process of each procedure, the procedure’s risk and benefits, patient recovery times, and patient satisfaction.

Dr. Leahy was recently recognized as an IDEAL IMPLANT Premier Surgeon due to his extensive expertise working with IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants, the latest technology in breast augmentation. With a unique structure surrounding these saline-filled implants, women can achieve beautiful results with zero risk of silent rupture. Dr. Leahy uses the IDEAL IMPLANT to help women look and feel their best. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, no expensive MRIs are needed, and they come with a lower risk of both capsule contracture and ruptures when compared to other implants.

"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, when asked for. They provide such a personal, warm, and comforting experience from start to finish. Each time I leave Dr. Leahy’s office I have a clear mind, answered questions, and truly feel valued. I am recovering from surgery now and there is not one bit of doubt in my mind that I have chosen the BEST doctor to perform my surgery. I elected to have the surgery to achieve personal results that I have desired for many years now. My advice to anyone considering Dr. Leahy as their surgeon, go to the consultation and you will see exactly what I am talking about. Dr. Leahy, you are more than appreciated for the work that you do, the professional environment you conduct, and the experience you provide to your patients. Truly, thank you.”

"Superb bedside manner!"

“I came to this website and found Dr Leahy. I just have to say that it has been a pleasant experience from the beginning. Dr. Leahy is great and definitely has a superb bedside manner. The wait times for appointments aren’t long at all and his staff are very friendly. I’ve been to both of his offices and which are very nice and both locations are convenient to get to. The whole office is professional and welcoming. I always felt comfortable at every appointment. The surgery went very well and I had a great recovery. It was fast and so much better then what I was expecting all thanks to Dr. Leahy and his great staff along with the staff at Shawnee Mission Surgery Center.”
