5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Full Tummy Tuck with Lipo - Knoxville, TN

After 3 c-sections and then 100 lb lost, my tummy has had its shares of ups and downs, way down, droopy down. My stretch marks went above my belly button and although they can't be completely removed, they can be less wrinkly and hidden easier. I had the flap, you know the one i'm talking about, the one you can't get rid of with diet or exercise. Every day I look into the mirror,...

5 out of 5 stars Lip Lift

just had my upper lip lift today. pretty satisfied - Knoxville, TN

I went in this morning for my upper lip lift. My overall experience at the plastic surgery center was pleasant and comfortable, except that I did feel it when they made the incisions, and soon after that it went totally numb. It must have been particially numb already because it did hurt quite a bit, but it wasn't so bad that I couldn't stand it. I didn't feel the need to let them...

Amazing Tummy Tuck - Knoxville, TN

I have always had a large belly, and after 3 children and yoyo diets, my belly was out of control. I went to go see Dr. Steven J Smith in Knoxville. It has been almost 8 week and I just love the results. I dress with much more confidence and all my friends have even notice the change in me. I used to dress to hide the belly, but not no more. Even my husband loves it. To all the staff in Dr....

Very Professional, Knowledgeable and Experienced in His Field - Knoxville, TN

I was very impressed with the ease of the whole process of setting up a consultation, all the way through post op.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

45 Year Old Puffy Eyes/ Upper & Lower Eyelid Surgery - Knoxville, TN

Dr Steven Smith is the best in Knoxville! I went to a few surgeons in the area due to the fact each has their own technique and I respect that! I was referred by another physician. His staff is by far the most friendly and professional. My wait time was less than 5 minutes. The entire process was explained with a minimum of 20 minutes by the surgeon (and he would have spent all day...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

38 Years Old, 4 Kids - Knoxville, TN

I had terrible sagging and took the recommendation from a friend for dr. Smith. Her breasts looked great. Everything went smooth with my consultation, and scheduling. Very happy with results. I had quite a bit of pain the first two days and itchy skin from the percocet, but subsided by day three. The pain reminded me of milk coming in after a baby. I slept upright to reduce swelling. Felt very...
