I honestly couldn't be happier with my results, I was a bit nervous at first due to the bad rep Sam has with african american patients but In the end I went with him because I really didn't want to travel out of state to get the job done lol. I had 2 operations by the way, rhinoplasty by sam and a lower lid blepharoplasty by a different surgeon whom I can't remember the name of at the moment.

1 Month After Op

Closer look of the after.

Little update

Asides from me shaving my head bald nothing much has changed lol, I'm still happy with the results.

I saw on the comments you had something done to your eyes? What did you do? I am looking for options! Did u have filler or surgery

The $12,000 was probably the surgeon's fee only.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! You looked great before but you blossomed to perfection! I am an African American female that has been very interested in rhinoplasty for a very long time; I am definitely considering seeing Dr. Sam Rizk. After your consultation, how soon were you able to have the surgery? In regards to the payment, I read previously you were on a payment plan - so here are my questions just to clarify: 1. You only had to pay a down payment before your surgery?(So AFTER surgery you paid the installments) 2. Did they check your credit before they allowed you to do a payment plan? I hope to hear from you soon! Thank you!!!

He's lying

Can you explain how you know he is lying? Just curious. Y would he unless this is a ploy by Rizk team to get people to schedule consultations.... nonetheless on the website (rizk) it says he offers financing. Anyone else beside this guy get financing with Rizk??

Wow, great nose. Do you mind if I ask a few questions regarding talking with Dr Rizk and the surgery via PM or on here? I'm a Black female and am very strongly considering Dr Rizk but in-depth reviews for him seem kinda hard to find, especially from AA patients. I estimated $20,000 for mine but wow, 12,000 is great! I hope I have a good consult with him and he can realize my expectations of having a slimmer nose that fits my face.

Fabulous new look! Thanks for sharing on RealSelf! Any tips for recovery that you can share with others?

My recovery was rather straight forward :), I have a pretty high tolerance for pain so the soreness in my face didn't bother me much and it only lasted 3 days, I was stopped using pain kills after the soreness subsided. I was able to return to work after the first week.

Whoa!! You look terrific... I was looking at your first pics and was like okay I know his nose is amazing.. but your eyes look great too.. made a great difference. Im thinking of doing a filler , for the eyes. Hoping Dr.Rizk does fillers. I would like to be knocked out for everything!! lolol Let me ask you did you get the eyes done before or after the nose ? That's one thing I wanted to know as far as separating procedures.. what was the time frame in between each surgery? You look terrific. so happy for you. Pray I saying this , at the end of the year.. Tomorrow is my Consultation. so im nervous smhh

Saw a review from someone on the rhino board ,and it got me nervous or doubting my choice, but now I see you again and im hopefull. she said she didn't have a good experience w. Rizk, very arrogant, she only had 3 min with him , and the worst part don't like her nose.. I felt terrible after reading that. I don't know, I guess its just a preference thing or luck . What I do see, is he does have more positive reviews than negative.

I got the nose job first since it does swell up your face a bit, it just made sense to get the eyelid operation after the swelling went down and It's not really a luck thing lol, more than likely anyone that doesn't like the nose they end up with after a operation it was probably their fault for not drilling exactly what they want into the doctor's head. Just make sure you let him know what you DON'T want and what you DO want.

Right...YOUR absolutely right ! And that's what I asked this girl , on here today. since she had a bad review. I said did you TELL him EXACTLY what you wanted ?? smhhh I agree.. because, if you say what you want , confidently and sure they should get it. ok ,so you did your eye lid surgery afterwards... thank you soooooo much . you look off the hook. lolol sorry to be repetitious but , kudos to you !! I will keep you updated on my journey as well. thanks again.
