An artistic eye and realistic results were EXTREMELY important to me and Dr. Lane Smith has just that. For me after reasearching for so long, I preferred a small vertical scar (because my belly button would not be able to be fully removed due to less skin laxity) with a very low horizontal scar that will be covered by my underwear. Dr. Lane Smith did exactly that and I could not be happier with his work. I am 5"4, weighed 122 and went into my surgery on July 12. I will be two weeks post op tomorrow.
The other thing I would like to mention are his staff. My patient coordinator, Jessica Estrada, is a wonderful and patient woman. When I got a little nervous (which is a HUGE understatement as I got closer to actual surgery day), she was wonderful, understanding and took such a logical approach which helped me. She always got back to me whenever I had any questions, responding even on her days off. Now, that is what I call excellent customer service! Dr. Crowley was my anesthesiologist, and what a gem. He called me 4 days prior to my procedure, we went over my medical history once again and I was impressed that he took the time to explain best practices and that if I follow them I would be less likely to have problems recovering. He was right, tomorrow it will be two weeks post op and I feel great! I want to thank Heidi, Desiree, and Shannon----they are wonderful woman who are compassionate and make up a great part of Dr. Lane Smith's team. I am so happy I decided to go with Dr. Lane Smith. If you want an excellent plastic surgeon, anesthesiologist, and staff than go see Dr. Lane Smith and his team.
