Breast Augmentation

Going in for any type of surgery is always going to get the best of your nerves, but everyone at LJCSC made me feel at ease from beginning to end. I felt excited instead of nervous and very confident throughout the entire process. I'd have to say the staff. Dr. Smoot and his assistant Carmen really made the entire process an amazing experience. The professionalism and true care for the patient was apparent every step of the way and I really don't think I could have been in better hands.

Breast Implant Revision

I have had several revisions over the years, always some sort of problem. Not the surgeon's lack of experience.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr Smoot and all of his staff were consistently helpful and professional, as well as very friendly and kind. I could not be more pleased with my experience there. My breast revision, lift, and the fat transfer to my cheeks have given me more confidence that I look my best. Since the revision included a decrease in implant size, my clothes fit better and I'm physically more comfortable. My husband is also very pleased with the surgical outcome.

Breast Augmentation

I had a wonderful experience with Dr Smoot and his staff. Everyone was very friendly and he was able to get me in for surgery on the date I really needed. I am extremely happy with my new boobs. I will definitely tell friends about him and will be a repeat customer I was so impressed with the anesthesiologist. I woke up feeling completely normal and the recovery from anesthesia was the best I have ever had!!

Breast Reduction

The whole team was professional and made me feel respected. They listened to my concerns and provided excellent care. I thought my nurse was great - she helped me with a few questions after surgery too by text. When I got a fever the night after my procedure, my surgeon called me after hours to check on me. It was a fast and easy process. I was ready to have the surgery and we got the ball rolling right away. Other doctors said I'd have to be on the calendar for almost a year before having the procedure. Each step of the way was also very procedural and I was given clear instructions for personal care before and after. I thought the whole process was well developed and executed.

Breast Augmentation

From the beginning I felt comfortable with Dr. Smoot. The nurse answered all my questions and the patient coordinator made everything like payments very easy to understand. Everyone was very accommodating. I was nervous about going through such a significant surgery but they put my worries at ease. The recovery process was smooth and I am very happy with my results. The only thing I would change is more imitative from the staff to follow up and check in. It has been 4 months since my surgery and they only followed up with me one time thus far.

Breast Augmentation

Friendly staff and doctors. Listened to my questions/concerns and knew what was best for in regarding get size. I was very anxious before surgery and they put me at ease

Breast Reduction

I have wanted a breast reduction since I was in high school, which was many years ago. I am so much more comfortable now and love my new look! I had complete confidence in the team from the moment of my first contact. I had no anxiety or second thoughts. It was nothing but a positive experience with everyone.


I received excellent service,and Dr Smoot was fantastic. I would recemend him to anyone in need of his services. This is the second time I had this procedure Last time was about 15 years ago

Face Lift

Dr Smoot listened to what I wanted and gave excellent advice. Carmen is outstanding!!! from beginning to end this entire office has been professional, yet friendly. Efficient and caring.

Breast Reduction

I felt very comfortable from the first appt throughout the entire surgery and post-op appts. The team is professional, warm and caring and always wanted to make sure I was mentally and physically prepared, comfortable and safe. My surgery was Nov. 30th, I had zero complications. I feel great physically and mentally. I could not be happier! I can run miles comfortably with 1 jog bra.I have my confidence back after years of feeling self-conscious about my appearance.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Smoot went beyond my expectations and I am so happy with my outcome. He was thorough, realistic and attentive to my needs. I highly recommend Dr. Smoot! Dr. Smoot and the nurses were always there for any questions or concerns I had. I felt very comfortable during the whole process.

Breast Implant Revision

The results were exactly what I had expected...I am very happy! The attention to all details, the courteous staff and the excellent medical professionals made my procedure a fantastic experience.

Breast Implant Revision

the time between the consultation to the pre op appointment was a few months so it seemed like details were forgotten about the implants I had in before the revision. The say of the surgery the Dr didn't remember that my implants were over the muscle. I think that is something you would and should really know and remember about a patient you are about to operate on

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Smoot and the entire team take their time to understand my needs, provide me options with pros and cons of each, and support my decisions. Everything goes according to plan. Outcomes are awesome! I can look in the mirror and not notice my droopy eyelid. My eyes look for balanced and I am no longer self-conscious of the differences between my two eyelids.
