While the number of board-certified plastic surgeons in Orange County, CA continues to grow, Dr. Andrew Smith distinguishes himself in many ways. He is a surgeon who is skilled, experienced and truly cares about his patients. Dr. Smith is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has been named a Los Angeles-area "Super Doctor" by Los Angeles Magazine and Key Professional Media. He specializes in cosmetic surgery for Orange County patients from Irvine, Huntington Beach and other nearby communities.
"My commitment to personalized care and excellence in plastic surgery offers you the opportunity to safely and confidentially enhance your natural beauty and achieve the look you have always wanted. When you are ready to make that choice, it is important to choose a surgeon you can trust."
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.
