Life-changing Ethnic Revision Rhinoplasty, Fat Transfer, Chin Liposuction, Cortex Laser and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) -New York

In the history of plastic surgery, Dr. Rizk must be considered a living legend in his vision and skillset as the world's greatest facial plastic surgeon. I am a doctor practicing in Las Vegas and sought Dr. Rizk in Manhattan for a challenging ethnic revision rhinoplasty in 2010. The biggest secret in the success of rhinoplasty is the surgeon's mastery of assessing the patient's cartilage strength and skin thickness, based on the patient's ethnic background, to produce an effective result. Being of Indian descent, I have weak cartilage strength with very thick skin and extensive scar tissue from my initial surgery with a Beverly Hills top doc. As you can see from the "before" photo, I had no bridge definition, over-shortened and an amorphous tip with asymmetric nostrils. Dr. Rizk, being a prolific sculptor and artist, finely designed three-dimensional strong cartilage grafts to create a defined, masculinized nose with exceptional bridge defintion, lengthening and tip refining and definition with symmetrized nostrils as you can see in the "after" photo taken just one week after surgery!! Despite the slight bruising and swelling, dramatic results were achieved just seven days post-op!!

In 2012, I sought Dr. Rizk to help improve my hollowed eyes, dark circles and loss of volume under the eyes, temple and cheeks. My own abdominal fat was harvested, centrifuged and and the stem cells were transferred to the areas lacking volume. Not only do I have youthful volume, but the skin is more vibrant in the tranfer sites because of the replicating potential of my own stem cells. Fat under my chin was removed to improve my jaw line.

In 2016, I wanted to see how Dr. Rizk could address my wrinkles, pigmentation and acne scars. The Cortex laser is miracle device in how the fractional CO2 component stimulates collagen production deep within the skin and the Er:Yag component improves pigmentation issues. I had the lasering done on a Thursday and was back to work presentable on a Monday! The lasering goes hand-in-hand with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. My blood was drawn, centrifuged, and the stem cells were re-injected under the eye, in wrinkles and acne scars. The PRP therapy actually shortened the healing time from the lasering. Where lasering stimulates collagen development and pigmentation control mechanically, the PRP stimulates rejuvenating properties at the molecular level.

I am now 37 years old and I look younger and at par with any model thanks to the artistic vision, talent and meticulous attention to detail of Dr. Rizk. The "before" and "after" photos represent the revision rhinoplasty in 2010. The rest of the photos are taken in 2016 and show the final result of the revision rhinoplasty, fat transfer, chin liposuction, Cortex laser and PRP therapy.
