About Dr. Young

As one of only a few female plastic surgeons in the Kansas City area, Dr. Sheryl Young brings an intimate understanding, in addition to her professional medical training, to addressing women's issues. As a mother of two daughters, she has a unique perspective on the female form, with firsthand experience regarding changes in the body after childbirth and the aging process.

Recognized early in her practice as a leader and an innovator, Dr. Young was named to the annual "Forty under 40" by the Kansas City Business Journal, a list of up-and-coming community leaders. She has been named a "Super Doctor" every year since 2006. Dr. Young's accolades and reputation have helped her become one of the most trusted doctors for plastic surgery in Kansas City.

While Dr. Young enjoys all areas of plastic surgery, anti-aging treatments have become increasingly important, both professionally and personally. She has used BOTOX herself for more than 10 years. Injectable treatments such as JUVÉDERM, used to fill lips and lines, can also help roll back the clock. She feels that, just as aging is a process, looking your best is also a process.

Her philosophy of treating the person, not just the body part, has distinguished her as a caring presence among plastic surgeons. Although she performs all aspects of plastic surgery, she has created a following in breast surgery, from augmentation and lifts to reduction and reconstruction. Artistic by nature, she combines her love of art and beauty when using her skills in both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures.
