John Smoot, MD, FACS Reviews (482)

Eyelid Surgery

Facilities are clean, warm & with a sense of calm, staff is attentive makes you feel at home. Physician was clear, thorough and competent.

Breast Implant Revision

I had implants that needed to be replaced; I am 64 years old, my implants were 30 years old and had been ruptured 12 years ago when I was hit by a car in a crosswalk. This was not an easy breast revision surgery. I feel much better and am very pleased with the breast revision results. [Single best thing is...] Getting the old, ruptured implants out and new (correctly positioned) ones in. The result is wonderful. Also, every medical staff person I encountered there during appointments or day of surgery were very professional and yet kind.


Everything about my procedure went well, from the initial inquiry and consultation to the post surgery follow up. All of the staff were responsive and caring at each step. I am extremely satisfied with the results of my surgery. The single best thing is the results, which far exceeded my expectations.

Breast Lift

It was quick and to the point. All of my questions were answered. And I was made to feel assured that this was the right treatment for me.

Eyelid Surgery

I had eyelid surgery with Dr. Smoot. We discussed the procedure before the surgery, and the doctor understands what my expectations are. Now 4 months after the surgery, I am very satisfied with the results. Thanks Dr. Smoot very much!

Eyelid Surgery

I've known Dr. John Smoot for over 26yrs . I trust him and his highly trained staff to assist me. I always will return when a need arises. [Single best thing is...] The staff's kindness...compassion and care they took in assisting me with my small procedure!! ;^)

Breast Augmentation

From consult to post-op my experience was really great. Every bit of information I needed was provided for me regarding pre-op and post-op so there were no surprises. I trusted Dr. Smoot to help guide me on sizing and the results were exactly what I expected!

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Smoot made me feel very comfortable from the first meeting. No-pressure, just honest and informative professional information. Dr. Smoot and his entire staff are very competent and warm, proving an environment where I felt safe and in good hands. [Single best thing is...] I wanted very natural-looking breasts since I was going from little breast tissue to more womanly curves. Dr. Smoot and staff helped me to pick just the right size based on precise body measurements and composition. The computer rendering of what the after-procedure results would look like gave me even more confidence in my decision for augmentation. The pre-surgery consult and post-surgery follow ups made my nerves and recovery relaxed and relaxed.

Breast Augmentation

Office staff and Dr. Smoot were very professional. I’ve been a patient LJCSC twice already.

Breast Augmentation

The doctor answered all my questions without me having to ask. He was detailed and thoroughly explained everything. He understood what I was looking for. We did an online meeting and it went great.

Mommy Makeover

He was very professional. I liked his personality and knowledge in regards to all my questions that I asked. He went over everything in great details which made me feel comfortable about the upcoming procedure I wanted.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Smoot and his team are amazing. I had been wanting a breast augmentation for almost 10 years and I finally committed. I could not have picked a better doctor as I am extremely happy with the results. Dr. Smoot and his team make you feel at ease throughout the whole process, from the initial consultation to the day of the surgery. The size I wanted is exactly the size he gave me, I never thought I would love them so much.

Breast Implant Removal

Breast plant removal and lift.

Skin Cancer Removal

Great service and result.

Tummy Tuck

My results were awesome. Staff is wonderful. Dr Smoot is the best

Breast Augmentation

Rihanna and Dr. Smoot were both very approachable, knowledgeable, and welcoming. They both made me feel very comfortable right away. I like their process, it’s organized and they make great use of technology in order to get an idea of what to expect.

Tummy Tuck

Extraordinary staff! Always on time appointments. Not rushed. I was made aware of the size of incision and recovery. Results turned out as expected. Dr. Smoot is a highly accomplished surgeon. I had another surgery a year ago and returned to him. [Single best thing is...] I felt confident the surgery would be handled well and I would not be at any risk.

Breast Implant Revision

I saw Dr. John Smoot as I was a former patient of his brother, Dr. Wendell Smooth. Dr. John Smooth made me feel very comfortable and relayed my fear that my implants are perfectly fine and that implants don't necessarily need to be replaced after 10 years -- an urban myth. Of course, if anything changes, I am welcomed back to see Dr. Smoot. Dr. Smooth's assistant was such a doll and she as well, made me feel comfortable. I wished her well in her new position.

Face Lift

I've had liposuction and breast implants with Dr. Smoot in the past and have been very satisfied with my results. I had a consultation on my face, as I am older now and was curious to see what procedures he would perform. He informed me which procedures would work best and gave me all the information that I needed regarding recovery time. I have a friend that went to Dr. Smoot for a face lift and she had amazing results.

Breast Augmentation

Wonderfully kind, professional, not-pushy and informative. Felt very comfortable from the moment I entered the facility and my confidence increased in choosing this facility.
