Dr. Sam Rizk
As a pioneer of various innovative techniques for nose surgery, Dr. Rizk is well known throughout New York & other states as the one of the leading plastic surgeons in his field. His ability to create beautiful and natural looking noses both for cosmetic and health reasons while limiting pain and shortening recovery time for his patients resulted in him voted as one of New York’s best Rhinoplasty surgeons. The combination of his skill and the technology he uses is unlike most traditional surgeons, which explain why he is in high demand not only by patients but by medical institutes all around the world that ask him to teach his groundbreaking methods to both medical professionals as well as med students.
Dr. Rizk’s background includes an undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where he graduated with honors. It was at this time when he was accepted into the highly coveted Inteflex program which gave undergraduates a spot in the University’s medical school. Upon completing an internship and residency at Lenox Hill Hospital, New York Hospital and Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital, Dr. Rizk journeyed to California to continue his studies in the cosmetic and plastic surgery capitol of the world before returning back home to Lenox Hill Hospital and Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital to practice as well as teach in the field of facial plastic surgery.
One of the innovative techniques practiced by Dr. Rizk involves the combination of endonasal rhinoplasty with sinus/septal surgical procedures. He also is a pioneer in the use of 3D High Definition Technology for many of his procedures. One of the reasons that Dr. Rizk wishes to use this form of technology for nose surgery is because it has proven to increase the accuracy and precision of the procedure while minimizing recovery time and side effects. He strives to not only cure problems we face on a day to day basis but also improve on the methods which already exist for treatment.
His ideas captured the attention of medical associations and conventions in the U.S. and overseas, where he teaches his methods and techniques, not only for rhinoplasty but also for neck lifts, surgical procedures of the eyelids, facelifts and others. His creativity with the advancements in technology along with his ground breaking techniques has helped him to receive high praise from individuals in the medical field – for example, Dr Rizk’s use of special glue made from tissues for the rhinoplasty procedure helps reduce the chance of swelling and pain when compared to the more common “packing” technique which has been known to distort the shape of the nose.
