I am considering Dr. Sam Rizk for a rhinoplasty revision.  I would love to hear from anyone who had revision with him.

Hi, I'm new to this site I went to a consultation with dr. Rizk. He told me I need a medpor implant as well. I just wanted to know have you had any infections from the medpor implant?

Just so everyone is aware: the site RateMD's.com is fake. I have tried MANY times to post a comment (I even tried different names etc.) and it has never let me post anything. ALL the ratings/ comments on that site are done either by employees of the doctors or companies hired to hype them up/ promote their image.

You may right

I can't vouch for the overall validity of the RateMD's site, but I've posted several reviews over the years without any problem or reason for suspicion. Not sure why you've had trouble, but I do know that your last sentence is not true. And while I love RS, there are reviews here that seem "arranged," as well. Just sayin'.

Everyone here MUST realize that the majority of these surgeons hire PR firms to write and spread 'good' (and in many cases absolutely GLOWING!) reviews, magazine articles etc. about themselves. So much of ALL THIS is based in lies and the media creating ABSOLUTELY UNATTAINABLE IMAGES of what women 'should' look like. Almost EVERY image you see in print has been photoshopped. They dont even bother with airbrushing anymore. Celebrities have professional make-up artists that make them up EVERY DAY. THOSE WOMEN ARE NOT REAL. Ten year old little girls develop SERIOUS self-esteem and self-worth issues because of this for gods sake! For anyone here to try and fashion themselves after these images/ people is chasing a cruel fantasy and lies. If that is what you seek then that is what you will find. However, I do realize that some legitimately need surgery per honestly disproportionate features. In that case, POWER TO YOU GIRLFRIEND! BUT, why isnt enough to just BE uniquely YOURSELF in all your beautiful 'imperfection'? Why is it that we all feel like we need to look like Kim Khardashian? Has she actually contributed to society in any substantive way? Has she ever done ANYTHING of worth? Has she ever done ANYTHING for womens rights or equality in general? Give me Gloria Steinem's nose!! SHE IS A WOMAN TO MODEL OURSELVES AFTER! Just sayin' : )

She is in a money market..what's your experience?

Dila does tend to be very rude at times, but I'm not sure you should allow her attitude to influence your decision on having Dr. Rizk as your plastic surgeon. Her attitude does not reflect on his work. I do agree he is very pricey now and this was not the case when I had surgery with him 4 years ago.

I had my 4th revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Rizk exactly 4 years ago. He explained to me that the procedure would be complicated because of the thickness of my skin. Due to the 3 prior surgeries, I had a significant amount of scar tissue. Dr. Rizk has allowed me to return every 6-8 months for kenalog/5-FU injections which can help reduce the swelling (which I feel does help). If anyone would like to view before and after pictures, please post your email addresses and I will be happy to send pictures. Although not perfect, I do feel that my nose has improved tremendously. Plastic surgeons cannot work magic, they can only do the best they can given the many factors involved in complex surgeries.

No, I had my primary rhinoplasty in Latin America. Huge mistake.

No, my primary rhinoplasty was done in Latin America. It was a huge mistake.

I had two rhinoplasties done in Latin America, 1 with Dr. Barek in Long Island and my last was with Dr. Rizk. Dr. Barek was also great but very conservative.

I currently have medpore in my nose in order to lengthen it. The reason why Dr. Rizk suggested that it be lengthened is because of the thickness of my skin. If he made it shorter, it would only appear more bulbous.
