I am extremely pleased with my results from my rhinoplasty with Dr. Smith. My nose is much more 'delicate' and smaller now, without going overboard and not looking like me anymore. The result is so natural and just suits me so much better. I found Dr. Smith to be very realistic and honest with me with his expectations and I like he didn't try to promise me the world in order to sell the surgery or himself. I had a very bulbous tip which he narrowed out very nicely, and I had quite a hump from the side profile which was quite harsh, and now the side profile of my nose is feminine and much softer. After my surgery Dr Smith was on vacation and I appreciated the fact that he still answered my questions via email. Also his admin is very quick at responding, very helpful and pleasant to deal with. So overall I am extremely thrilled I went with Dr Smith for this surgery. My nose was something that had bothered me since teenage years, and although as an adult I had accepted it as it was I am glad I went through with this as I am just that much happier now. Thanks Dr. Smith!

I had a Septo-rhinoplasty with Dr. Smith in August 2014. I am now 10 months post surgery and could not be happier with my results! Prior to meeting with Dr. Smith I had a consultation with another surgeon. He was rough, unpleasant and did not make me feel comfortable. Due to this I was hesitant to meet with another surgeon. After a few days of extensive research I decided to contact Dr. Smith's office for a consultation (as his reviews seemed encouraging). To no surprise Dr. Smith was just as friendly, kind and honest as his previous reviews said! To me this was very important, especially when going for such an extensive operation (my surgery was about 3 and a half hours due its complexity - less than 80/10 breathing in my nose, as well as a deviated septum).

Pre-surgery and post-surgery were both very pleasant experiences with Dr. Smith and his lovely secretary Beena (she is the sweetest!). They answered any and every question myself or my parents had regarding my surgery. They were prompt in responding to both emails and phone calls.

Despite a few discouraging reviews I must say my experience with Dr. Oakley Smith was exceptional. Not only can I fully breathe now, but my nose looks natural, and is perfectly straight. Dr. Smith exceeded my expectations and I could truly not be happier with my results!

BTW I even receive compliments about my nose from people who do not even know that I've had surgery - I think this speaks for how exceptional Dr. Smiths work is.

Dr. Oakley Smith is one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in Toronto. I searched for a doctor with his skill, knowledge and credentials for about two years beforehand. I had my surgery at the beginning on February 2015. I found him through a friend who went through rhinoplasty and was in love with his work. I had a rhinoplasty and scar reduction surgery, which took about 8-9 hours and cost an arm and a leg (don’t cheap out people!!!!! As you get what you pay for and I am very satisfied with my results). It was well worth it. I decided to do rhinoplasty after a terrible car accident. My nose was severely damaged and misaligned to the point where breathing was questionable. I also had a bump on the bridge of my nose and the tip was pointed downwards. The scar on my face was uneven, deep and fairly noticeable. It went from my forehead, down to on top of my eyelid down to right above my temple on the right side.

I couldn’t eat solid food and forced myself to have liquid food for about two weeks. I couldn’t brush my teeth for a week straight and was super hard to do for a couple weeks. I had all my stitches removed 3 days after my surgery. Dr. Oakley Smith said, he put 30-40+ stitches all over my face, in total. I heal quickly but I kept bleeding which was normal. I wasn’t as swollen as regular patients. I had my cast and stints removed a week after surgery. After that, I’ve been on my own and only email Dr. Oakley Smith when I have a question or concern and he emails me back within the same day or sometime during the week. Dr. Oakley Smith truly cares about his patients and is always available to answer my questions. He does not over exaggerate results at the beginning and tells you his honest opinion (which some surgeons fail to do). He was very empathetic throughout the whole process and provided my family with strict guidelines on aftercare. However, I must warn all of you that post-surgery you will look terrible (swollen, bloody and in lots of pain) but if you follow his aftercare instructions and stay calm, post op and healing is a breeze. We’ve had our regular post op 3 months meet and plan to meet again in November. My scar now looks fantastic, by the way! Although the scar will always be there, the appearance of it has lessened dramatically. He did an amazing job with the scar and I am very happy. I have had tape on my face since he took out all the stitches and will continue to have the tape on until, hopefully, November.

Nonetheless, I am very pleased with Dr. Oakley Smith and all his work with my nose and my scar.

It has been approximately 6 years since my surgery and I am still so pleased, and grateful that Dr. Oakley Smith was able to help me. I had a revision do to a botched rhinoplasty. The pre surgery care was wonderful. The post surgery care was wonderful. The results were absolutely amazing! I say a thank you every morning when I look in the mirror. Simply the best!

Dr Smith is simply wonderful. I went to see him for a revision rhinoplasty after I had lost trust in my previous Dr who totally messed up my nose and I couldn't be happier with the results from Dr Smith.

I went in for a opinion and consult with Dr smith and I from the bottom of my heart and soul would like to say thank you to Dr smith for such a wonderful Professionalism knowledge and care you have for a patient . Very professional asking questions and answering my questions so clear and with care so I understand . I have hard time to trust a Dr as I have had extremely bad experience and I went in with fear and reserved but his "honesty" which it was impossible not feel made me so happy and comfortable . Absolutely he is worth the wait time I rather wait for a Dr like Dr smith and pay double the price but atleast you get honest opinion and honest answers and outstanding service . I truly belive that Dr smith is the best surgeon that Canada has to offer . I have a complication to my face and his compassion towards me and willing to help me means the world to me . His secretary is absolutely amazing friendly helpful and kind . Beena she is the best . Thank you Dr smith and stuff .

From the bottom and the top and the middle of my heart I want to say THANK YOU Sir for my new nose! I'm very happy with the result. My nose looks exactly the same as on the mock-up pictures he sent me a year ago. The best surgeon ever!
Someone said here that he provides very poor patient care after surgery..... I would disagree with that.... At least never happened to me. Today was my one year follow-up, and he was extremely nice, honest and kind....same as during my first consultation.
Are you still looking for a good surgeon? Trust me, guys, he is best of the best! I'm so happy I chose him!
Sir, I want to thank you for your extraordinary care, for you skills and talent! God bless you!

I did a consult with Dr. Smith early 2015 and found him calm, knowledgeable, and patient. I asked him some follow up questions by email and went to see him at his office after to clarify some of my questions as he needed to see my nose again. I paid for one consultation fee, received digital imaging, and found Dr. Smith to be kind, honest, and realistic. Unfortunately, however, the email exchange between us stopped as he communicated to me that he feels that I may not be completely content with the improvements that he can make to my nose. He prefers to not operate on a patient who may not be happy at the end rather than have an unhappy patient. I really appreciated his honesty and wrote to him with a final question with respect to a suggested change to my nose and did not hear back from him. I felt that he lost interest in my case given my many questions. I think I even called Beena to ask her to forward my email to him again but didn't hear back. The only recommendation I would have for him is to be open to patients having anxiety about the procedure (especially if it's their first time) and consider and explain different scenarios to patients like me who may over-think a decision as big as rhino. I would've been happy to go with him as my surgeon but it's hard for a patient to do that when they feel that their PS has lost interest in helping them. I did want to write this review. however, as I have consulted with 5 surgeons in Toronto so far, and I've found Dr. Smith's honesty and calm demeanor outstanding.
