Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Smoot's experience guided me to have the procedure that was right for me. I had imagined needing a breast lift with my implant removal, but he felt only the removal was necessary. I took his advice, saving money and recovery time. Also, the staff worked as a cohesive, well organized group. Everything went as explained and expected - no surprises. Surgical and anesthesia team were friendly and professional and I appreciated the efficiency.

Breast Lift

Fantastic results, easy recovery, enjoyable interaction with Doctor and Staff!

Face Lift

Deep scar on my neck and lines on my throat that were not there before. My eyes look exactly the same. The lines on my top lip were supposed to be erased. That is what I was told directly by the spa PA and Dr. Smoot. I paid $1200.00 extra for laser treatment and my top lip still has lip lines. Now I am told, yes, they come back. Misleading and I would have not done this and chosen another method had I not been told this works.

Dr. Smoot listened to what I had in mind for results. Staff very attentive and professional. Very please with my results, Dr. Smoot is amazing.
