Dr. Sam Rizk, a plastic surgeon practicing in New York, is well-known for his advanced techniques and unique skill in plastic surgery, in particular his expertise in sculpting natural-looking, beautiful noses.
Dr. Rizk was the first doctor to combine endonasal rhinoplasty with sinus/septal surgical procedures, the results of which were published in the Annals of Plastic Surgery. He is a pioneer in the use of 3D High Definition Technology in rhinoplasty surgical procedures, which drastically increases the accuracy and precision of a rhinoplasty, as well as minimizes recovery time after the procedure. Dr. Rizk is also shares his advanced methods and techniques with other doctors by teaching throughout the world. He is renowned for his revision rhinoplasty procedure, which treats collapse bridges, restores saddle noses, asymmetric noses, hanging columellas, and drooping noses, thus improving the patient’s ability to breathe. Rather than using the traditional packing material associated with rhinoplasty, Dr. Rizk opts for a technique that uses special glue made from tissue, as he feels that packing is painful and may result in swelling, which can distort the shape of the nose.
Dr. Rizk is also well known for facelifts, neck lifts, and surgical procedures of the eyelids. He strives to deliver the most attractive, natural results with shorter recover periods by using a wide range of technology. Dr. Rizk has developed new techniques and uses specialized sealants made from tissues. These revolutionary approaches lead to a quicker recovery after the surgery, ensuring that patients can return to their daily activities as soon as possible.
