Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, Named New York Magazine Best Doctor

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 02, 2013

According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) rhinoplasty was the most popular procedure performed on both men and women under the age of 35. As common as the procedure is, rhinoplasty is among the most complex to perform because the surgeon must take into account not only aesthetics, but functional breathing considerations as well.

The nose is the most prominent feature on the human face, so even a small change can impact a person’s appearance in a big way. A beautiful nose is a natural one that complements and fits harmoniously with the other facial features.

Manhattan facial plastic surgeon Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, understands this delicate balance, striving to advance rhinoplasty techniques in order to achieve the most natural possible result, while optimizing patient satisfaction and comfort.

“With each rhinoplasty, I construct a natural looking nose grounded on the structure of the cartilage and the overlying skin that will stand the test of time,” says Dr. Rizk. “A natural nose should flow with the other facial features including the upper lip, chin, and cheeks. An important factor in achieving a result that doesn’t appear to have been altered is to maintain good structural support.”

Considered one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in the world, Dr. Rizk has pioneered the use of high-definition three-dimensional endoscopic telescopes to better visualize the structures of the nose and perform a more precise surgery. The increased accuracy results in a more efficient procedure that requires no stitches, less bruising and scarring and one-third the recovery time of traditional surgeries.

The use of this system provides a precise view of the interior nasal area by inserting a telescope that is connected to an imaging system. With this enhanced view, Dr. Rizk can avoid disrupting blood vessels, muscles, and other sensitive tissues so there is less bruising and swelling, which promotes a quicker recovery. Because of increased visibility, the surgery is also more direct and allows for greater precision, as tissue is not distorted by swelling during the procedure.

Widely respected sought-after for his preeminent skill and leadership as one of New York’s best rhinoplasty surgeons, Dr. Rizk recently made the exclusive annual list of New York Magazine’s “Best Doctors.” The highly selective listing recognizes doctors who are the best in their field, taking into account not only professional qualifications and reputation (education, residency, board certification, hospital appointment, and disciplinary record) but also bed side manner and patient communications skills.

Dr. Rizk’s office is located at 1040 Park Avenue in Manhattan.
