5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Great and looks natural

He was able to straighten my nose and correct my septal deviation. I had a lot of scar tissue and he was able to correct it with little downtime. He was professional, had a great bedside manner and his office staff is great.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty Circumferential - East Lansing, MI

Very awesome informative and helpful

4 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

41 Y/o Breast Lift with Explant of 17 Y/o Implants - Fat Transfer from Belly to Breast - East Lansing, MI

This is my second surgery with Dr. Smith (first being my BA). He had also performed a lift on my mother and scar revision for my daughters burn in the past so I knew he did great work. Choosing him for my explant was the logical and easy choice for me. I am very happy with my results and would choose Dr. Smith for any future work I may choose.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

18 Hours Post-Op - East Lansing, MI

Dr. Smith and his staff are truly concerned with the medical benefit surgery offers. Dr. Smith first wanted to alleviate my chronic neck and back pain and once he was sure he could THEN we discussed the aesthetic improvements that could be done. Dr. Smith made me very comfortable with his abilities and his staff was always available to answer questions and make sure I had what I needed.
