Breast Augmentation

Dr Smoot and his staff were everything I could have imagined. I did thorough research before getting my BA and looked into many different places. Upon my consultation here, I knew that this was the place I wanted to go. They are absolutely professional, caring, and the facility is beautiful. I traveled from out of town to get my surgery and my coordinator and nurses never failed to check in via emails/phone calls to get me pumped and ready for my surgery. I am ecstatic with my results and am constantly told how natural my breasts look even just after a couple of months! Thank you to Dr Smoot and all of his staff. You guys are rockstars and I am excited to continue to keep in touch as I continue to heal.

Eyelid Surgery

The best thing, of course, is the results! Pre-surgery; at a time in my life when I wasn't feeling very positive about the way I presented myself to the public, and to some extent, family, and feeling like people didn't look you in the eye anymore, the staff at LJCSC turned all of this around. I was so very pleased at the way I was treated. Like a friend and girlfriend. Smiles from everyone, a comforting hand on my shoulder, sharing experiences and stories. Being asked questions about my life and family.This all helped and was so appreciated. Carmen, Sarah, Dr. Smoot were the BEST! A better than expected experience. I am truly grateful.

Breast Augmentation

The office and Dr.Smoot are amazing! I feel amazing and it was so easy

Breast Augmentation

From beginning to end I was blown away with the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff. My consultation was very informative and Dr. Smoot really took the time to answer all my questions. I had my first consult with Dr. Smoot and the other three didn't even come close to impressing me. His staff is very attentive in responding to emails and phone calls. I ended up having 3 consultations with him or his nurse before I made my decision. My results are amazing! Nobody believes me when I say I got implants because they look so natural. I've already recommended him to my friends. My confidence has improved tremendously! Clothing shopping has become much more enjoyable now that shirts flatter my body better. I am constantly getting compliments on how nice my breasts turned out. It was definitely worth it.

Eyelid Surgery

very professional, I am very happy with the results it was exactly what I expected

Tummy Tuck

The results were better than expected.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Smoot and his staff always make everything so easy. I feel so comfortable and love seeing the familiar faces like Carmen whenever I go in for a follow-up visit. I got the results I wanted.. I've always had a small chest and now I feel more like a woman. Thanks to Dr. Smoot!

Eyelid Surgery

Instructions prior to procedure were clear, post op instruction also clear. Every staff member friendly, and I felt I was in good hands throughout- no worries! It has had a positive effect on my vision as well as my facial appearance.

Breast Augmentation

I was very satisfied with my experience with Dr. Smoot and the other clinical practitioners because they were all friendly and made me feel comfortable even right before the surgery. I was very nervous the day of surgery but the nurse I forget her name but she was keeping my mind off surgery and was very kind. Dr. Smoot was very professional and kind as well. I feel more confident wearing clothes I could never wear before, and I also feel more proportionate to my body shape and size.

Breast Augmentation

Great service, great staff. Very reachable and respond quickly and thoroughly. The breast augmentation results were amazing and exactly what i wanted The sense of care and urgency they had towards me when I had the hematoma

Fat Transfer

This was my third time back to have a cosmetic related procedure done could have gone to many other practice's but keep returning because they are very professional and do exactly what I ask of them. Dr Smoot is by far my favorite plastic surgeon and I will continue to use him for all my plastic surgery needs.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck: Dr. Smoot is an excellent plastic surgeon. The results are excellent and he made a new, normal looking belly button with no scar! This was important to me because I looked at a lot of belly buttons online and it's a dead giveaway that a lot of women had a tummy tuck because of their fake looking belly buttons. Carmen was great keeping in contact pre and post op and answering any of my questions. The anesthesiologist listening to my concerns and I did not get sick post op. That was nice! The operating room nurses were very nice and caring. They made you feel safe. Price? Yes the price is on the high side. But you get what you pay for. Don't bargain shop with something as important as surgery. Get the best results the first time around. If you're having a procedure by Dr. Smoot you will be very happy. Good Luck! The single best thing about the whole tummy tuck procedure is... it's over! And I can't wait to show off the results this summer.
