A Minute With

1.
THE FUTURE OF MY FIELD
I believe we are going to see more men turn to plastic surgery, and more interest in procedures that generate a more natural-looking result

Breast augmentations, tummy tucks and Mommy Makeovers, facelifts, blepharoplasties, browlifts, CO2 laser skin resurfacing. In addition, I have extensive experience with complicated breast revision and reconstruction procedures

Philosophy

Believing that he and his patients are partners, Dr. Andrew Smith aims to create aesthetic surgical results for his patients that appear natural and beautiful. He and his entire staff look forward to helping patients achieve their cosmetic goals and desires, while at the same time, keeping a realistic perspective of what is possible. Dr. Smith has become a sought-after plastic surgeon in Orange County for a variety of procedures. When he gives a women the curves she has always longed for, rejuvenates the appearance of a patient who looks older than they feel or recontours a weight-loss patient’s newly trim body, he strives for an experience that is rewarding for both the patient and surgeon.

About My Practice:

What are your most requested procedures?

A majority of our patients seek me out for my skill and experience in breast procedures, including augmentations and lifts. A popular request I receive from patients is for a more “natural look” versus an overly enhanced one. My subpectoral techniques and the diverse types of implants available today allow for a much more natural look to be achieved. 

How does your staff enhance the patient experience?

Our friendly, welcoming staff treats patients like family and makes them feel at ease. This is especially important because our patients need to feel comfortable while they are making key choices about their health and appearance. 

About Me:

Tell us about your background.

Before opening my Orange County practice, I studied plastic and reconstructive surgery at the prestigious University of California at Los Angeles. 

Why did you become a plastic surgeon?

I thoroughly enjoyed the exposure to plastic surgery that I gained during my medical school training, in which I witnessed many incredible outcomes. It truly is the most rewarding thing to be able to help a patient achieve their aesthetic goals, and as a result, enhance their self-esteem.

I first met Dr. Smith in May of 2006 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had a lot of life saving decisions to make in a very limited amount of time. I interviewed several plastic surgeons; it was important for me to feel safe and knowledgeable throughout this journey. I chose Dr. Smith because he provided all the different options available in terms I could understand, answered all my questions, and believe me I had a lot of questions! Most important is that he never pressured me into making a choice in regard to choosing him or choosing a certain procedure. With the help of Dr. Smith and his wonderful staff my journey was easier because I knew that I was cared about as an individual and my best interest was always in the forefront. Over the years I have come in for BOTOX®. In November 2012, I asked Dr. Smith for a facelift....he answered me with "I AM NOT DOING THAT TO YOU!" and then he said the most he would do was an eyelid lift and that I didn't need anything else. It made me feel good to know he would not complete an unnecessary procedure. In January of 2013, I did my eyelid lift in his office. It was such an easy procedure and virtually painless. The office staff made sure I knew what supplements to take and when to start taking them to limit the bruising. I love my new eyes and the best part is that it's not obvious I had work done. I refer my friends and family to Dr. Smith and even though I don't know you, I can tell you this..Dr. Smith and his staff will take very good care of you and make you feel important and special every time you walk through the door.

I first heard/met Dr. Smith through a very good friend in California. As I approached the age of 60 I knew I wanted an eyelid lift. I had consultations in Tucson, AZ (where I live) with several plastic surgeons but just was scarred to do it. I was visiting in California in 2010 and saw Dr. Smith for a consultation. Dr. Smith and the entire staff made me feel so welcome and relaxed, I was convinced that if I got up the nerve to do any eyelid lift this is where I would do it. During my consultation I asked Dr Smith about having under my eyes done and he explained that most people who have just either lids or under eyes done wish in the end they would have done both. So armed with this information I now had more to think about. I finally made the decision to do both and in April 2013 had the surgery. Since I had to come from Tucson, Dr. Smith and his staff worked around my schedule for the surgery and the follow-ups in the following weeks. The entire procedure was so flawless I wish I would have done it sooner! I love the way I look, in fact I think it took 10 years off. I am the oldest sister and my younger sister now says "She looks like the older sister!" I would highly recommend Dr. Smith because he is interested in you as a patient. I wanted some Botox done on my forehead on my final check visit and he said I really did not need it. I am convinced he will only do procedures he believes you need versus what he can make money on!

Dr. Smith is the absolute best plastic surgeon around. Without any hesitation, I would recommend him to a friend, family member, or anyone looking to achieve a natural looking breast augmentation. Dr. Smith assured me during the initial consultation that when all was said and done, he would make sure I was happy with the result. That is exactly what happened. Every step of the way, from the office personnel, patient consultant, surgery nurses, and of course, Dr. Smith, I felt cared for and was treated with the utmost professionalism. My concerns were met with thorough and concrete explanations that put my mind at ease allowing me to sit back and enjoy the process of doing something that would ultimately be life changing. I knew Dr. Smith was the top of his class in medical school, but was very impressed by the way he guided me with gentleness and genuine concern for my well-being during the entire process. He discouraged me from overdoing the breast size reminding me that as an avid athlete and stay at home mom that a natural feminine look would be best. As a former collegiate runner and mom two times - my flat chest was not the look I wanted to have any longer. I'm so happy with my new shapely figure and am able to work out and feel very feminine at the same time. In addition, after having a third child and breastfeeding her for a year, Dr. Smith's outstanding work still looks as good as new! That is an extra bonus... Thank you my awesome doctor. You're amazing!!

I was referred to Dr. Andrew Smith by my best friend. I was in desperate need of a consultation for a breast augmentation. So, I called to schedule an appointment and spoke to Jennifer who pretty much sold me over the phone! This office has such great staff! I have always been flat but never had a problem. My breasts were a nice plump "A" and I was ok with that until I breast fed 2 happy precious babies. My perky A's weren't so perky anymore; they turned into deflated bean bag sacks! I felt like I looked like a 12 year old boy. I was very self-conscious and felt like I couldn't even wear certain shirts without looking even more like a boy. I didn't feel attractive with my shirt off for my husband and just truly started hating what my breasts looked like. So with that said I went in to have my consultation and was greeted and treated like family right off the bat! After trying a few different sizes and discussing all the different types, I chose the Natrelle® silicone-filled breast implant, 450cc behind the muscle. This turned my sad A's to a BEAUTIFUL D!! I couldn't be happier!!! Dr. Andrew Smith is an amazing surgeon who did an amazing surgery! I can't even see the scar. I absolutely love my new breasts; they are soft and squishy and have dropped nicely into place after 3 months.

My experience with Dr. Andrew Smith and his office staff was wonderful! From the moment I walked in to the office to my consultation, the front office staff was very warm and friendly. Dr. Smith was very warm, caring and spent a lot of time with me during the consultation. I felt like he really listened to me and the results of my surgery were exactly as I had hoped for. I am extremely satisfied with Dr. Smith and his staff and would recommend him to anyone who is considering or needs cosmetic or reconstructive surgery.

Dear Dr. Smith

I have waited until my surgery today to thank you for your expertise in doing my breast reconstruction as well as the additional "tweaking". As you know, I drive 1½ hours each way to see you. Would I ever seek someone closer? Not a chance! Your staff has always gone out of their way to schedule my appointments knowing my drive is a long one. I appreciate their concern more than you know. I am, of course, most thankful to you for your incredible skill and expertise. Plus, I appreciate the fact that you try your best to come as close as possible to what I want as a patient. Never once did I feel pressured into a decision I was not comfortable with making. Thank you! I am confident you have heard these words many times before but I really wanted you to know how personally grateful I am to you and your staff. And yes, today is Valentine's Day so...from my heart to yours a huge thank you! Sincerely, MB

Dear Dr. Smith & Fabulous Staff

Thanks for my great pair of "things!" I love them and they look amazing! Thank you all for being so helpful. It made my experience much easier than I anticipated. Thanks to all the ladies in the front for being so patient with me and my multitude of appt. changes. I love my new boobs! If God gives you lemons you can always make lemonade or you can trade them in for some melons instead. :) Thanks again!

Thank you so much Dr. Smith for helping me get my life back!! I had so much damage from 3 surgeries from another doctor that I was hopeless and fearful the damage from these surgeries could never be fixed. My self-esteem was nearly gone. But you did amazing work on me and improved things so much that for the first time in 3 years I can look at myself in the mirror without crying. I realize that some of the previous damage is permanent but you made it so much better. The recovery from the surgery you did on me was so easy and quick! I again was afraid because of the previous hard and lengthy time it took to recover from the other surgeries (over 15 hours) and results were always worse, not better. But recovering from your surgery was so easy! Dr. Smith you brought me back from being very scared and traumatized!! I can't tell you how much you have helped me! Thank You! My big and greatest regret is that I didn't find you 3 years ago. I feel that I would have avoided a lot of tears and stress had I found you first. You, Kathy, and Jessica were so understanding and gentle with my fragile and traumatized self-esteem. Thank you for taking the time to listen when I needed to explain my fears from the previous bad experience with the other doctor's surgery on me. You listened and never rushed me. You are the best of the best! With your help I will once again feel confident.

Dear Dr. Smith

I know we thanked you in person but I just wanted to thank you again for your wonderful efforts and willingness to work with the Orange County Breast Outreach Program to get the surgery taken care of. I know she is very grateful and happy! Thank you so much for doing this surgery.

Probably there are thousands of plastic surgeons around. But for me, there's only one doctor who is intelligent, knowledgeable, skillful, caring, understanding, he cracks jokes sometimes and he looks wonderful in suits. And that is "you". May God give you a good health, so that you can help more women who need a doctor like you, so that you can bring back their smiles on their face (like me). Just wanted to say thank you soo much for everything and I'm glad that you are one of my doctors.

I will take credit for losing 120 lbs. Dr. Andrew Smith changed my life. I was a fat child that grew up to be a fat adult. At 13 I had DD breasts and a flabby stomach; the next 40 years of same eating habits and giving birth to two children is not a pretty picture of my body. 28 months ago I lost 120 lbs and I looked great on the outside but when the clothes came off the sagging breasts and stomach looked rather gross. For years of fighting with yeast infections and rashes because of my excess flab my doctor asked me if I wanted the extra skin to come off; I wasn't sure I wanted to do something that radical but Dr. Brown encouraged me to go see Dr. Smith. My doctor had confidence in Dr. Smith to help me with my medical issues. I was scared but I felt the opportunity for this would be too hard to pass up. I had no expectations of what it would be like after surgery because I had NEVER had a beautiful body. All during my decision-making I would call Kathy with many questions and she would answer and comfort me with all concerns. After the surgery I am sure there was pain but what I remember about that and the following days was Dr. Smith and Kathy at my side telling me everything he would be doing and how great it would be when he was finished. The appointments started the next day and the phone call of how I was doing that made me feel as though I was not going through this alone. Dr. Smith, Kathy and Jessica would share my joy of how my body was healing. I felt like they went through the journey with me, of changing from a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly, and it would not have been done without this incredible team. Dr. Smith did a procedure that was life changing for me and I am sure for anyone else going through the same scenario. Why do I feel so connected? I will tell you why...it takes a team. I apologize I don't know everyone's name; but when I had insurance questions they would be answered or would find out and they got back to me immediately. There's no friend or family member that understand the transformation of my body and the joy I felt but Jessica shared that joy with me. When I would come into the office I could hardly contain myself to share my excitement and Jessica picked up on it and her face would light up with happiness for me as she walked me into an examining room. I would gush over my body changes and she would listen to me. I have called Jessica many times to ask ridiculous questions and she would answer them for me...when should I have new bras fitted? Answer...wait about 6 months until all the swelling is down. Simple questions but important to me. I was not treated as a dollar sign but as a person. I would VERY much recommend Dr. Andrew Smith and his incredible team to anyone considering a procedure. Ask for my phone number and I will gladly speak to you about my experience.

Dear Dr. Smith and Staff

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the wonderful care I received from you during the pre, peri and post operative period of my surgery. I don't know that I have ever had such a compassionate and skilled surgeon prior to this procedure.

FAQ's

Q. What is unique about your approach to using Botox® & fillers?

What our experts say:

My patients know me as having a soft touch with injectables, which means I don’t “overfill” in order to create a refreshed, youthful appearance. A more natural look overall is definitely the current trend, and patients really seem to enjoy the subtle approach I take to improving their looks without making them look “overdone.”

About Dr. Andrew Smith
About Me

Tell us about your background.

Before opening my Orange County practice, I studied plastic and reconstructive surgery at the prestigious University of California at Los Angeles. 

Why did you become a plastic surgeon?

I thoroughly enjoyed the exposure to plastic surgery that I gained during my medical school training, in which I witnessed many incredible outcomes. It truly is the most rewarding thing to be able to help a patient achieve their aesthetic goals, and as a result, enhance their self-esteem. 

About My Practice

What are your most requested procedures?

A majority of our patients seek me out for my skill and experience in breast procedures, including augmentations and lifts. A popular request I receive from patients is for a more “natural look” versus an overly enhanced one. My subpectoral techniques and the diverse types of implants available today allow for a much more natural look to be achieved. 

How does your staff enhance the patient experience?

Our friendly, welcoming staff treats patients like family and makes them feel at ease. This is especially important because our patients need to feel comfortable while they are making key choices about their health and appearance.

A Minute With

THE FUTURE OF MY FIELD

I believe we are going to see more men turn to plastic surgery, and more interest in procedures that generate a more natural-looking result

MY HAPPIEST PROFESSIONAL MOMENT

I would have to say it was being a part of the UCLA team that separated the conjoined, Guatemalan twins in 2002

WHAT SETS MY PRACTICE APART

We are a family and try to have our patients feel like they are a part of our family

CAREER-DEFINING PROCEDURE

I think the Mommy Makeover because it makes an amazing transformation on a woman’s body after having children

WHAT I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT

Exercise

THE BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION ABOUT MY FIELD

That you can contour your body with long-term results without proper diet and regular physical activity

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY PROFESSION

I love seeing patients happy with their decision to undergo plastic surgery

MOST MEMORABLE THING I LEARNED THIS YEAR

During an opportunity to work with some very talented doctors from overseas, I learned new techniques when using the anatomical breast implant

THREE WORDS THAT BEST DESCRIBE ME

Honest, loyal, ethical

MY MOTTO

Be the best you can be every day

HOW DOES YOUR STAFF ENHANCE YOUR PRACTICE?

My staff is a select group of women who have similar values to me. They have excellent credentials and are interested in providing the highest level of patient care. My staff is a reflection of me and I am very proud to have them as part of my team

HOW DO YOU MANAGE PATIENT EXPECTATIONS?

I try to listen to patients to gain a better understanding of what they want to do and what improvements they would like to make. I think the best policy is to thoroughly explain procedures, manage expectations, set realistic goals and try to deliver the best possible results

WHAT ARE YOUR MOST REQUESTED PROCEDURES?

Breast augmentations, tummy tucks and Mommy Makeovers, facelifts, blepharoplasties, browlifts, CO2 laser skin resurfacing. In addition, I have extensive experience with complicated breast revision and reconstruction procedures

HOW DO YOU SHOW PATIENTS YOU CARE POST-TREATMENT?

My staff and I strive to achieve the most welcoming environment both pre- and post-treatment. We are always available for questions. Our patients are part of our family and we want to maintain a lifelong relationship to treat all of their aesthetic needs

Dr. Smith performed a tummy tuck and liposuction of the waist on this 45-year-old patient who was unhappy with her stomach due to two pregnancies and a past surgical scar. 

Your Partner in Plastic Surgery

With his extensive experience in breast surgery, it’s no wonder Dr. Andrew Smith has become a sought-after plastic surgeon in Orange County for a variety of breast procedures, including augmentations, lifts, reconstructions and revisions. “I am well trained in using many different types of breast implants to help each patient obtain the look they are looking for along with what best fits their individual body,” says the surgeon.

FAQ

Q. What is unique about your approach to using Botox® & fillers?

What our experts say:

My patients know me as having a soft touch with injectables, which means I don’t “overfill” in order to create a refreshed, youthful appearance. A more natural look overall is definitely the current trend, and patients really seem to enjoy the subtle approach I take to improving their looks without making them look “overdone.”

I first met Dr. Smith in May of 2006 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had a lot of life saving decisions to make in a very limited amount of time. I interviewed several plastic surgeons; it was important for me to feel safe and knowledgeable throughout this journey. I chose Dr. Smith because he provided all the different options available in terms I could understand, answered all my questions, and believe me I had a lot of questions! Most important is that he never pressured me into making a choice in regard to choosing him or choosing a certain procedure. With the help of Dr. Smith and his wonderful staff my journey was easier because I knew that I was cared about as an individual and my best interest was always in the forefront. Over the years I have come in for BOTOX®. In November 2012, I asked Dr. Smith for a facelift....he answered me with "I AM NOT DOING THAT TO YOU!" and then he said the most he would do was an eyelid lift and that I didn't need anything else. It made me feel good to know he would not complete an unnecessary procedure. In January of 2013, I did my eyelid lift in his office. It was such an easy procedure and virtually painless. The office staff made sure I knew what supplements to take and when to start taking them to limit the bruising. I love my new eyes and the best part is that it's not obvious I had work done. I refer my friends and family to Dr. Smith and even though I don't know you, I can tell you this..Dr. Smith and his staff will take very good care of you and make you feel important and special every time you walk through the door.

I first heard/met Dr. Smith through a very good friend in California. As I approached the age of 60 I knew I wanted an eyelid lift. I had consultations in Tucson, AZ (where I live) with several plastic surgeons but just was scarred to do it. I was visiting in California in 2010 and saw Dr. Smith for a consultation. Dr. Smith and the entire staff made me feel so welcome and relaxed, I was convinced that if I got up the nerve to do any eyelid lift this is where I would do it. During my consultation I asked Dr Smith about having under my eyes done and he explained that most people who have just either lids or under eyes done wish in the end they would have done both. So armed with this information I now had more to think about. I finally made the decision to do both and in April 2013 had the surgery. Since I had to come from Tucson, Dr. Smith and his staff worked around my schedule for the surgery and the follow-ups in the following weeks. The entire procedure was so flawless I wish I would have done it sooner! I love the way I look, in fact I think it took 10 years off. I am the oldest sister and my younger sister now says "She looks like the older sister!" I would highly recommend Dr. Smith because he is interested in you as a patient. I wanted some Botox done on my forehead on my final check visit and he said I really did not need it. I am convinced he will only do procedures he believes you need versus what he can make money on!

Dr. Smith is the absolute best plastic surgeon around. Without any hesitation, I would recommend him to a friend, family member, or anyone looking to achieve a natural looking breast augmentation. Dr. Smith assured me during the initial consultation that when all was said and done, he would make sure I was happy with the result. That is exactly what happened. Every step of the way, from the office personnel, patient consultant, surgery nurses, and of course, Dr. Smith, I felt cared for and was treated with the utmost professionalism. My concerns were met with thorough and concrete explanations that put my mind at ease allowing me to sit back and enjoy the process of doing something that would ultimately be life changing. I knew Dr. Smith was the top of his class in medical school, but was very impressed by the way he guided me with gentleness and genuine concern for my well-being during the entire process. He discouraged me from overdoing the breast size reminding me that as an avid athlete and stay at home mom that a natural feminine look would be best. As a former collegiate runner and mom two times - my flat chest was not the look I wanted to have any longer. I'm so happy with my new shapely figure and am able to work out and feel very feminine at the same time. In addition, after having a third child and breastfeeding her for a year, Dr. Smith's outstanding work still looks as good as new! That is an extra bonus... Thank you my awesome doctor. You're amazing!!

I was referred to Dr. Andrew Smith by my best friend. I was in desperate need of a consultation for a breast augmentation. So, I called to schedule an appointment and spoke to Jennifer who pretty much sold me over the phone! This office has such great staff! I have always been flat but never had a problem. My breasts were a nice plump "A" and I was ok with that until I breast fed 2 happy precious babies. My perky A's weren't so perky anymore; they turned into deflated bean bag sacks! I felt like I looked like a 12 year old boy. I was very self-conscious and felt like I couldn't even wear certain shirts without looking even more like a boy. I didn't feel attractive with my shirt off for my husband and just truly started hating what my breasts looked like. So with that said I went in to have my consultation and was greeted and treated like family right off the bat! After trying a few different sizes and discussing all the different types, I chose the Natrelle® silicone-filled breast implant, 450cc behind the muscle. This turned my sad A's to a BEAUTIFUL D!! I couldn't be happier!!! Dr. Andrew Smith is an amazing surgeon who did an amazing surgery! I can't even see the scar. I absolutely love my new breasts; they are soft and squishy and have dropped nicely into place after 3 months.

My experience with Dr. Andrew Smith and his office staff was wonderful! From the moment I walked in to the office to my consultation, the front office staff was very warm and friendly. Dr. Smith was very warm, caring and spent a lot of time with me during the consultation. I felt like he really listened to me and the results of my surgery were exactly as I had hoped for. I am extremely satisfied with Dr. Smith and his staff and would recommend him to anyone who is considering or needs cosmetic or reconstructive surgery.

Dear Dr. Smith

I have waited until my surgery today to thank you for your expertise in doing my breast reconstruction as well as the additional "tweaking". As you know, I drive 1½ hours each way to see you. Would I ever seek someone closer? Not a chance! Your staff has always gone out of their way to schedule my appointments knowing my drive is a long one. I appreciate their concern more than you know. I am, of course, most thankful to you for your incredible skill and expertise. Plus, I appreciate the fact that you try your best to come as close as possible to what I want as a patient. Never once did I feel pressured into a decision I was not comfortable with making. Thank you! I am confident you have heard these words many times before but I really wanted you to know how personally grateful I am to you and your staff. And yes, today is Valentine's Day so...from my heart to yours a huge thank you! Sincerely, MB

Dear Dr. Smith & Fabulous Staff

Thanks for my great pair of "things!" I love them and they look amazing! Thank you all for being so helpful. It made my experience much easier than I anticipated. Thanks to all the ladies in the front for being so patient with me and my multitude of appt. changes. I love my new boobs! If God gives you lemons you can always make lemonade or you can trade them in for some melons instead. :) Thanks again!

Thank you so much Dr. Smith for helping me get my life back!! I had so much damage from 3 surgeries from another doctor that I was hopeless and fearful the damage from these surgeries could never be fixed. My self-esteem was nearly gone. But you did amazing work on me and improved things so much that for the first time in 3 years I can look at myself in the mirror without crying. I realize that some of the previous damage is permanent but you made it so much better. The recovery from the surgery you did on me was so easy and quick! I again was afraid because of the previous hard and lengthy time it took to recover from the other surgeries (over 15 hours) and results were always worse, not better. But recovering from your surgery was so easy! Dr. Smith you brought me back from being very scared and traumatized!! I can't tell you how much you have helped me! Thank You! My big and greatest regret is that I didn't find you 3 years ago. I feel that I would have avoided a lot of tears and stress had I found you first. You, Kathy, and Jessica were so understanding and gentle with my fragile and traumatized self-esteem. Thank you for taking the time to listen when I needed to explain my fears from the previous bad experience with the other doctor's surgery on me. You listened and never rushed me. You are the best of the best! With your help I will once again feel confident.

Dear Dr. Smith

I know we thanked you in person but I just wanted to thank you again for your wonderful efforts and willingness to work with the Orange County Breast Outreach Program to get the surgery taken care of. I know she is very grateful and happy! Thank you so much for doing this surgery.

Probably there are thousands of plastic surgeons around. But for me, there's only one doctor who is intelligent, knowledgeable, skillful, caring, understanding, he cracks jokes sometimes and he looks wonderful in suits. And that is "you". May God give you a good health, so that you can help more women who need a doctor like you, so that you can bring back their smiles on their face (like me). Just wanted to say thank you soo much for everything and I'm glad that you are one of my doctors.

I will take credit for losing 120 lbs. Dr. Andrew Smith changed my life. I was a fat child that grew up to be a fat adult. At 13 I had DD breasts and a flabby stomach; the next 40 years of same eating habits and giving birth to two children is not a pretty picture of my body. 28 months ago I lost 120 lbs and I looked great on the outside but when the clothes came off the sagging breasts and stomach looked rather gross. For years of fighting with yeast infections and rashes because of my excess flab my doctor asked me if I wanted the extra skin to come off; I wasn't sure I wanted to do something that radical but Dr. Brown encouraged me to go see Dr. Smith. My doctor had confidence in Dr. Smith to help me with my medical issues. I was scared but I felt the opportunity for this would be too hard to pass up. I had no expectations of what it would be like after surgery because I had NEVER had a beautiful body. All during my decision-making I would call Kathy with many questions and she would answer and comfort me with all concerns. After the surgery I am sure there was pain but what I remember about that and the following days was Dr. Smith and Kathy at my side telling me everything he would be doing and how great it would be when he was finished. The appointments started the next day and the phone call of how I was doing that made me feel as though I was not going through this alone. Dr. Smith, Kathy and Jessica would share my joy of how my body was healing. I felt like they went through the journey with me, of changing from a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly, and it would not have been done without this incredible team. Dr. Smith did a procedure that was life changing for me and I am sure for anyone else going through the same scenario. Why do I feel so connected? I will tell you why...it takes a team. I apologize I don't know everyone's name; but when I had insurance questions they would be answered or would find out and they got back to me immediately. There's no friend or family member that understand the transformation of my body and the joy I felt but Jessica shared that joy with me. When I would come into the office I could hardly contain myself to share my excitement and Jessica picked up on it and her face would light up with happiness for me as she walked me into an examining room. I would gush over my body changes and she would listen to me. I have called Jessica many times to ask ridiculous questions and she would answer them for me...when should I have new bras fitted? Answer...wait about 6 months until all the swelling is down. Simple questions but important to me. I was not treated as a dollar sign but as a person. I would VERY much recommend Dr. Andrew Smith and his incredible team to anyone considering a procedure. Ask for my phone number and I will gladly speak to you about my experience.

Dear Dr. Smith and Staff

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the wonderful care I received from you during the pre, peri and post operative period of my surgery. I don't know that I have ever had such a compassionate and skilled surgeon prior to this procedure.
