Dr. Sam Rizk is featured in the Wall Street Journal’s plastic surgery article discussing revision rhinoplasty deformities. Read the full feature below:
Dr. Sam Rizk, a plastic surgeon in New York City, says 1 out of 3 of his rhinoplasty patients have had previous nose jobs. Among the most common problems he sees are “scooped bridges,” over-restricted nostrils, and pinched tips. The number of botched nose jobs he has repaired has soared over the past three to five years as more surgeons are performing the surgery who aren’t well trained or experienced, he says. Industrywide statistics bear out his experience: Revision surgery is up 35% from 2008 to 2012, according to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
