Dr. Sam Rizk makes an appearance on ABC News in which he discusses new technology that significantly shortens patients’ recovery time after Rhinoplasty surgery. Superior results are achieved using 3D High Definition Endoscopic tools which allow the surgeon to have an internal view of the nostril during surgery to avoid muscles and blood vessels that commonly cause scars and bruising after surgery. This method allows for a shorter recovery period in which pain and swelling is minimized. Instead of using a drain or packing after surgery, Dr. Sam Rizk uses a dissolving adhesive.
Traditional Rhinoplasty methods require weeks of bruising and pain. One of Dr. Rizk’s patients was able to go on a vacation one week after surgery.
