Best Experience Ever - Columbia, SC

Word of mouth. Dr Rich and his staff helped me move into my 50s with style. The Whisperlift was easy and I look great. I was back at work soon. His eye for detail is amazing.Everyone knows he is the face guy in SC.

My Experience with J. Smythe Rich II MD - Columnia, SC

His office staff is pleasant but not overtly friendly or customer service oriented. The office is not managed with a great amount of efficiency. If you make an appointment with him, be prepared to wait 1- 1.5 hours to see him after your scheduled appointment time. The office is not conscientious of patients’ time and/or schedules. Overall, I would recommend Dr Rich with the above reservations taken into consideration.

61 Year Old Thrilled with Dr. Smythe and the WhisperLift! - Columbia, SC

Dr. Rich takes a lot of pride in his work. He wants the patient to understand and be happy with the procedure so he fully explains everything. He is truly artistic in his abilities to make his surgical results natural and becoming for the patient. He was repeatedly recommended to me by other medical professionals and is well-respected in the community. I am so pleased with the results of my surgery!

Mini Facelift Particularly to Eliminate Jowls, Improve Neck Also - Columbia, SC

As I stated above, Dr Rich was wonderful. He had offered other alternatives,fillers, which I had done in the past but I was ready for something that didn't just hide the jowls but eliminated them. His nurse took pictures and he showed me with digital technology what I could expect after I had what he calls "the whisper lift". He scheduled a follow up appointment 2 weeks before my surgery and I was given prescriptions to have filled and take the morning of my procedure to relax me.He also included prescriptions for pain control. I was told I would also be given an injection the day of my procedure. I arrived the day of my procedure and it really touched me that he wanted to say a prayer with me before the procedure. I really appreciated that. After the procedure, which went well, he wanted to see me the following am for follow up and to take the bandages off. I was to expect a lot of swelling and there was. I needed to sleep with my head elevated for a while. He also gave me his personal phone number to call him any time I had any concerns. I did call him once during my recovery and he responded right away. I thought I might be getting an infection but as it turned out, I was not. He saw me every day for 3 days after my procedure always reviewing any concerns I had and reminding me he was available by phone 24 hours daily. I then followed up with him weekly for 2 visits and will have a 6 week post surgical appointment in another 2 week. I would very highly recommend Dr Smythe Rich to anyone considering any type of plastic surgery. I am very pleased with my results thus far, I am one month out past surgery and I love the look of my non-jowly jaw line and my more youthful appearing neck. Thanks to Dr Rich's artistic and medical skills, I feel much better about my appearance.

Worry Lines and Migraines! - Columbia, SC

I have been coming to Dr. Rich for years for Botox and a few fillers and HE IS THE BEST! I feel totally comfortable and completely trust him with my face. I always looks very natural-nobody has ever asked if I've had anything "done"-although I can tell a difference and feel that I look "refreshed!"
