Breast Implant Removal

excellent pre-op; thorough explanation of what to expect; pre, during and post porcedure.Great surgery team. Post surgery recovery room experience was wonderful.I woke up so warm and relaxed. I followed all my Dr.'s advice on what to do and Not Do post surgery. It seemed hard to give up exercising and walking; but after 2 weeks of no lifting or walking: I started short level walks first; then a 2 weeks later taking dog for walks; then a 3 weeks later started up my exercise very carefully and slowly and began full exercise and hill/mountain hikes after 13 weeks; coming back on line and feel so great and no complications.

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.

Vaginal Rejuvenation / Tightening

Explained the procedure and took time to listen to my concerns about the procedures.

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.

Lori Saltz, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Saltz and Ruth were very professional and helpful. Dr. Saltz created a good plan for my procedure, and had a back up plan just in case. Dr. Saltz is a highly competent doctor and a perfectionist- she has exactly what I am looking for in a doctor!

Lori Saltz, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Lift

I was not prepared for how amazing my results would be following my breast lift procedure. Not only are my incisions/scars minimal, but the anatomical result is natural and nearly perfect. It's not easy to let go of your breast identity and trust that your Dr. will be able to re-construct you in a way that makes the risk worth the reward. Dr. Saltz re-made my breasts into their ideal shape. I'm still mesmerized when looking in the mirror. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. This procedure was an easy recovery. I was back to work with minimal downtime. All of the necessary after-care and compression garments helped to make a non-complicated healing process.
