Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

I initially went to a grand rapids surgeon for my lower half (butt/hips) cosmetic surgery and was very unhappy with my results. I then came to Dr Smith to have him correct her work and he did an amazing job. His staff is great and his office/surgical center is A+. I definitely recommend Dr Smith and would absolutely trust him with doing more cosmetic surgery for myself.
I had struggled with a recurring spot on my face and also my ear. My appt with Dr. Smith was great. He explained what the spot was, but did a biopsy just to reassure me and also to confirm his diagnosis for me. While I was in the office, I asked him about the spot on my ear which he took care of right in the office. I didn't expect that because I was in for something else, but he saved me a trip and also took care of the problelm. Thanks Dr. Smith!
I have multiple surgeries with Dr Smith spanning over the last 20 years. I have always found him to be professional and the staff made me feel very comfortable. They have always been available to answer my questions. I am highly satisfied with the work done by Dr Smith and have most recently started seeing his nurse injector Michelle for Botox and Kybella. I couldn't be happier with the results!
