I love spending time outdoors. I often joke that I'm "solar-powered."

Dr. Smith's expertise in microsurgery allows him to perform complex reconstructive procedures (e.g., “DIEP flaps,” targeted muscle reinnervation, “VSP” or virtual surgical planning). He is also trained to perform “super-microsurgical” procedures designed to improve a type of chronic limb swelling known as lymphedema. In addition to reconstructive procedures, Dr. Smith performs the full gamut of plastic surgery, including cosmetic treatments (e.g., chemical peels, Botox, fillers) and procedures (e.g., eyelid surgeries, breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks).
