So Far I Am Happy with the Result! - New York, NY

I am 46 years old and hate my loose neck skin. After seeing my plastic surgeon he suggested a neck lift/facelift. Since I was not ready for either of those, we agreed on lipo to see how that would work. I was told I would have improvement but the real fix would be a lift. I am pleasantly surprised at the improvement! I am one month post op and still swollen so I al looking forward to when...

5 out of 5 stars Dysport

Among many great doctors, this experience stands out as the best

I went to Dr. Smith after I had gotten botox and fillers over the years from four other top doctors, in both Los Angeles and New York. All were very good and I was always very pleased with the results. Nonetheless, I felt that Dr. Smith had the most nuanced ability to achieve the finest results. He recommended Dysport, which I prefer now to botox. By far out of any doctor I have known, Dr....

Great experience!

Dr Smith was very professional and personable. I trusted his opinion and he took time to address my questions about Dysport thoroughly. He was also very accommodating to my schedule and his staff was very warm and friendly. Would definitely recommend him!

Unbeatable medical experience, professionalism and concern for his patients.

Dr. Darren Smith, is smart, experienced, and shows compelling concern for the needs and comfort of his patient. He never "rushes" the process and is quick to explain the purpose and what to expect during a procedure.

Professional treatment in a spa atmosphere

"Everyone at the office from the assistants to the doctor himself was very professional, courteous and straightforward about the procedure and its pros and cons. I had done my research in advance so I knew with confidence that everything they told me was accurate and thorough. The treatment professionals handled the process smoothly and with great care for comfort. There's a large flat screen...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Great experience with Dr. Smith!

I had a great experience on my first visit to the practice. Dr. Smith was very clear and straightforward in addressing my concerns and making suggestions. I'd been to a number of other doctors prior and, while everyone was nice, I got the impression that Dr. Smith was the most qualified. Ali was also awesome. I'll be scheduling my procedure here

The Liposuction Paradox

Liposuction is simultaneously one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures in the world and also one of the most commonly misunderstood. Liposuction is performed so frequently because it can deliver wonderful results with minimal downtime. Ironically, these areas (results and downtime) seem to generate a great deal of the concern many have about the procedure. Misunderstandings about who is a good candidate for liposuction also cause a good deal of confusion. I’ll address each o...
