Dr. Rizk often consults with patients living outside of the New York area who cannot travel to NYC to meet with him in person to discuss their rhinoplasty. Using his thorough internet consultation process, Dr. Rizk is able to review the facial structure of a prospective patient and make a recommendation on the types of corrections that would be of benefit to that patient. If are considering a rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty, but cannot travel to Manhattan for a consultation with Dr. Rizk, you may wish to use our internet consultation process. Please review the steps below and call our Manhattan office if you have any questions or concerns.
Submit Patient Registration Form and Photos
First, you’ll need to download the print the patient registration form. Answer all of the questions, sign the form, and make a scan of the form so you can return it to Dr. Rizk via email.
Next, you’ll need to take 6 photos of your face for Dr. Rizk to review. You’ll need a friend or family member to help you take these photos unless you are quite handy with a tripod. These should be high-resolution photos, taken against a plain, solid background, using plenty of light. Be sure that no part of your face is obscured by shadows. The photos must be in focus and your face should fill the entire frame. Take one photo at each of the following angles (see example photos below):
- Angle 1: Frontal view (face the camera straight on)
- Angle 2: Left profile view (turn your face to the left so the outline of your face can be seen clearly)
- Angle 3: Right profile view (turn your face to the right so the outline of your face can be seen clearly)
- Angle 4: Left oblique view (turn your face at a 45°angle to the left so 3/4 of your face is visible)
- Angle 5: Right oblique view (turn your face at a 45° angle to the right so 3/4 of your face is visible)
- Angle 6: Base view (tilt your chin upwards, so both your chin and nose are seen)
Now, you can email the photos and scanned registration form to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dr. Rizk’s Review and Evaluation
Dr. Rizk will review your photos and form within 10 days, but usually much sooner. He will determine if you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty and make his recommendations on the changes that would suit your face. Then, his office will email you these recommendations along with a quote for the rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty.
Some patients wish to discuss the recommendations and quote for surgery with Dr. Rizk via phone. This can be arranged for a phone consultation fee of $350. If you decide to proceed with the surgery, the consultation fee will be credited towards your procedure.
