John Smoot, MD, FACS Reviews (473)

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.

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.

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.
