Dr. Andrew Smith, MD

Plastic Surgery | Male | 46 years old

Before opening his Orange County plastic surgery practice, Dr. Smith trained in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the prestigious University of California at Los Angeles, well regarded as one of the premiere plastic surgery programs in the country. He trained with many well-respected plastic surgeons in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills including several members of the extreme makeover team. While a chief resident at UCLA, Dr. Smith was involved in the much-publicized separation of the conjoined Guatemalan twins. The nearly 24-hour long surgery resulted in a successful separation and has been a model for several subsequent separation surgeries. Media coverage of this monumental event was captured on the Today show, Good Morning America, and the front page of the New York and LA Times. Dr. Smith is on staff as a plastic surgeon at multiple Orange County hospitals including Saddleback Memorial Medical Center, Hoag Hospital, and Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center. Outpatient surgeries are performed at Laguna Hills Surgery Center. He currently is an active member of the breast center at Saddleback Memorial Medical Center and Hoag Hospital.Read more

very personable, friendly, and actually spent time talking with me about several possible options for fat loss. I tried out the Sculpsure for arms and upper abs. Four weeks post the arms made a big difference. Not sure about the abs yet, but i still have 4 weeks to go for the final verdict.

Dr. Smith is amazing! Before I went to Dr. Smith for a breast reduction, I went to several other doctors as well. None of the other doctors treated me as well as he did. Also, his team ( The amazing people that work there) are great. They make me feel extremely comfortable, like I'm family. I travel more than 2 hours for each appointment and I didn't mind it at all. The travel was well worth it. Also, I love my results! Thank you so much Dr. Smith and team, Nicole
