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.


Rachel was easy talk to and hear.

Eyelid Surgery

Great service. Everyone is very nice, attentive, and knowledgeable. Dr. John Smoot is such a great doctor and is very straight forward of what he can or cannot do.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Smoot explained thoroughly how he could safely remove my recalled Allergen implants and improve the overall look of my double reconstruction with smooth implants.

Face Lift

Dr. Smoot is a freakin genius. My neck and face look so good. Nothing else to say, a freakin genius period.

Breast Augmentation

The staff was incredibly nice and very welcoming. Dr Smoot is very knowledgeable about what he does and was able to answer any questions I had. I am very confident I chose the right surgery center and Dr. for my procedure.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Smoot was incredibly approachable, and patient with any questions/concerns I had regarding surgery. I never felt as though he was rushing through my consultation. Overall, the consultation created a sense of trust and rapport, which I will carry through to my surgery.

Face Lift

Staff was so pleasant and kind. Dr. Smoot worked me in with my schedule change. I’ve had a prior surgery from Dr. Smoot. He is professional, honest and highly recommended.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Smoot and staff always do the best for their patients. Very talented and caring. Results are top notch.

Face Lift

Professional, pleasant, thorough

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Smoot and his staff were phenomenal. Your concern is their concern when it came to any issue or questions you may have about your surgery. [Single best thing is...] feeling like I had the best of the best taking care of me.


I’ve never felt this confident and I really felt comfortable with Dr. Smoot. The pain and side effects didn’t last long and I healed very well. I absolutely love my results.

Breast Augmentation

I'm truly grateful bright and happy and satisfied with my boobs they look supernatural, you can hardly see my scary and I healed very fast.

Breast Augmentation

All of my expectations were met. And everything turned out exactly like we agreed on. I loved the consultation. I felt like it was very thorough and it helped me know what to expect.

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.

Tummy Tuck

I'm still recovering so I won't have a true, final opinion for several months. However, I didn't feel listened to by my surgeon or his nurse. I never received return phone calls prior to surgery from the nurse's desk about prescriptions, insurance, etc. I have a weird bulge in my upper abdomen, but my surgeon said he didn't see anything. Every day in the afternoon, I get more and more uncomfortable and my abdomen bulges out. It's frustrating and I hope it will go away, but I'm still waiting for my body to fully heal to see if I will need surgical revision. So far I am disappointed with the results, but time will tell.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Smoot was very friendly and made me feel comfortable asking questions. His responses to my questions were very thorough and comprehensive. His nurse is very friendly as well.

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.
