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.

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!"
