  • New York double-board facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Rizk was interviewed by WPIX about plastic surgery in the Dominican Republic. The article tells the story of a New York mother who went overseas for plastic surgery and died from a blood clot. Dr. Rizk explains how this death could have been prevented and why medical tourism is on the rise. Dr. Rizk believes the surgeon should have waited at least 24 hours after landing before operating on her and performing tummy tuck and liposuction. Patients who choose to undergo plastic surgery in other countries due to low cost, need to ask the right questions and do their homework.

    Some issues to bring up during your phone/Skype consultation:

    • Is the facility certified?
    • Is the doctor certified?What standards are the doctors and facility certified by?
    • How do the standards stack up to the US?
