Dr. Smith is an Artist, he is highly intelligent and cares about his patients, he is honest and will get you as close to perfection as possible. He did an amazing job with my surgery, I love my new body and can't say enough about his skills, he has changed my body and confidence. All of his staff is on point and caring. His Anasthesiogist was also great and made me feel at peace under his care, he made sure to call me before and after the surgery to answer any questions and put me at ease. I also love Francesca, she is one of the nurses that works with him, she is very caring and skilled. All of the coordinators are also helpful, professional and make sure that all of your questions are answered. Hands down the Best Dr, skills, and staff!

Dr Smith is the bomb!!! His expertise is amazing. He was very realistic with what to expect and VERY thorough. He really put me at ease and listened to what I wanted. I am definitely going to use him in the future if I decide to do any other procedures. In addition, his staff is AMAZING!!!! I always feel that the best attract the best and my experience with Dr Smith proves that right!

There are not enough words in this vast english language to express how I feel about Dr. Smith. He is so warm and kind and when you meet him you are taken back by him. He is not a typical doctor that has become desensitized by his profession, he is very sensitive and caring. There is a goodness that radiates from him and I am thankful to have found him to treat me.

When I went to see him I was full of questions, same questions I had asked the previous surgeons. No one explained and actually spent the time to make sure I understood everything. Very satisfied with the service I was provided by him and his staff

Poor post op surgery care with a rude surgeon who is impatient and irritated. Great staff isn't enough to consider coming back or/and refer him.

Dr. Smith made me feel immediately comfortable, and I had read great reviews about him online. He made great recommendations as to implant size and I am glad I followed that recommendation. His staff is very sweet and professional. I highly recommend this practice!

Fantastic doctor!! Dr Smith was so thorough and stripped away all my apprehensions immediatly upon meeting him! I traveled all the way out here, because he was the best I could find and I feel that I was absolutely correct! His demeanor was very professional and the way he spoke, he is obviously very knowlegeable and experienced. I am so glad that he is the doctor I chose!! I did have to wait a while in his office before my procedure, but I know that was because he was being thorough in providing aftercare for the patient before me, which is totally respectable and I have no problems with waiting my turn!

I took the cast off today! I can't begin to say how happy I am. I was so nervous when they took off the cast, but was ecstatic when I saw my new nose in the mirror. I uploaded an image today and it really shows how balanced my face is. My original issues were that my nose was too wide, the tip was too bulbous and turned down, and there was a hump. I wanted a much smaller nose and I'm glad that was achieved. I got instructions to place the cast on twice in the morning and twice in the evening in order to push back on the bones as they mend. Otherwise, no sunglasses for six weeks and of course not bumping it into anything. Dr. Lane Smith is a fantastic plastic surgeon, man, and now a great friend. He delivered on every premise and I wouldn't hesitate to refer anyone to him. I heard he was great with noses, but now I was able to see for myself. As I mentioned in my review, the only critique I would have is the wait times were long--it seemed his staff were a little disorganized trying to book appointment times and actually go through in a decent amount of time. However, whenever I did meet anyone I was always greeted with a smile, a friendly attitude, and wasn't rushed when my time did come. If you guys have any questions, don't be afraid to ask! :)

I've been looking into getting a mommy makeover for the last 5 years. I've spent hours online looking at plastic surgeons websites and there was always something I didn't like about the before and afters until I came across Dr. Smiths website and pictures. That was it for me, I was very impressed and I knew I had found the right surgeon for me. He is very thorough and knowledgable. He has a great personality, made me feel comfortable, and did a fantastic job. He takes extreme pride in his work and it shows. I will recomend him to anyone who asks. His staff is awesome, and they also put me at ease. Great Man! Awesome Surgeon!

I did my research. On the internet. This is my second procedure with Dr Smith and his staff and just like the first time, everyone is caring, attentive and great. Francesca is awesome, Dr Crowley is the bomb. The staff at the front desk. Jessica and Shannon are always a pleasure to deal with. There is one more staff member and I can't remember her name but she is always smiling actually all of them are. Dr Smith's Surgery Center seems to be a great place to work for all his staff and that makes it an awesome place for us patients. Best Plastic Surgeon ever. JLS
