5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Excellant Facial Plastic Surgeon Fixed Rhinoplasty Mistake from 30 Years Ago

I had a rhinoplasty some 30 years ago and the job was terrible. My nose becam deformed and my septum wore away from scar tissue.For many years once i was able to have it redone, no surgeon would touch it. Finally i found my Dr. who also is an ENT. He was so sympathetic and willing to work on my nose being that revisions were his specialty. He made no promises but knew he could make me look...

Rhinoplasty and Deviated Septum - Manhattan, NY

After much research and many consultations, I decided that Dr. Rizk was the right doctor for me to perform my Rhinoplasty (even though I was in TN and he was in NY). I was shocked to learn that my issues went much deeper than just what I say on the outside. I had many functional issues that Dr. Rizk uncovered and corrected.

1 Month After Op - New York, NY

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...

Very Satisfied with Dr.Rizk -4th Revision Rhinoplasty - Manhattan, NY

I had my 4 th revision with rizk and my experience was as immaculate, staff professional, but more importantly Dr Rizk, knowledgeable, confident, experienced with revisions and after 3 previous consultations i had no hesitation to leave my check that day. My cousin did have work done by him but i was a more complex case being my 4th revision, open approach and skin graft taken from my ear. Costly? Absolutely . 20k but i just wanted it to be my final nose job! Its been 5 months i do have swelling but very satisfied. He did MAJOR corrections. Day of surgery rosemarie the nurse made me feel so cool and calm. My nerves were at ease and i knew i was in the right hands. His anesthialogist was so personable and thorough about each step, even showed me how and what i was going to be intubated with.

Awesome! -New York, NY

I'm a mid 30's male. I've hated my nose for my entire adult life. I traveled to NYC to visit DR R. (not an easy thing to do if you have an anxiety disorder.) He was very friendly and knowledgeable. Pointed things out that other doctors did not and even ordered a CT scan because of a deviated septum (another doctor said my septum was "perfect.") I took a leap of faith and scheduled my...

Unbelievable - New York, NY

I had my septo/rhinoplasty done March 8, 2013. His staff is AMAZING! The anesthesiologist - the best! Dr. Rizk, Dila and Midtown Surgery called me throughout the weekend to check up. I had ZERO bruising or swelling around my eyes. After surgery I took a Percocet (bad idea - it made me horribly nauseous). In the evening I took 1 500 mg Tylenol. The next day I had no pain at all and...

Rhinoplasty with Dr. Rizk- 19 years old

So.. I remember back in 7th grade when I was 13 my nose suddenly got waaaay too big for my face, before I was totally happy with the way I looked, never wore makeup, it was all good. In 8th grade I started trying to distract from my nose, getting bangs, wearing poorly applied makeup etc. I admit I looked pretty awful haha. Some days I wouldn't really care about my nose.... thinking that I...
