Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, Popularizes Medical Tourism in Manhattan

New York, NY (PRWEB) December 30, 2013

Medical tourism has long been a trend around the world with places like India, Thailand and Mexico made popular for their relatively inexpensive prices for travelers seeking cosmetic procedures. However, as patients become more and more educated about the ramifications of plastic surgery and the importance of receiving specialized care from an accredited surgeon, cost is no longer the main consideration.

Home to some of the world’s top surgical specialists, the United States is emerging as a top destination for medical tourism - making it the third-most visited country for medical tourists last year.

A recent survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery supports this trend, reporting that a quarter of patients seeking facial aesthetic procedures were willing to travel for access to a specialty surgeon. Often, patients pursuing top-quality plastic surgery just don’t have access to the level of specialization and experience required to make them comfortable with choosing a local surgeon.

Known globally for his precise, discreet work and cutting-edge surgical facility, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, understands that cosmetic enhancements are part of a larger travel experience for many. Thirty percent of his Manhattan practice is comprised of international patients who demand the best in artistic skill and care.

“We have seen a notable uptick in the number of international patients in the past few years,” says Dr. Rizk. “With the increased accessibility of information and resources available, patients are becoming much more concerned with results and safety than cost.”

Sought after worldwide for his innovative surgical techniques, natural outcomes and shortened recovery times, Dr. Rizk is known globally as the go-to surgeon for rhinoplasty and lifts on the face, neck eye and brow. Recognized by New York Magazine as one of the region’s “Best Doctors”, Dr. Rizk has pioneered the use of high-definition three-dimensional endoscopic telescopes to 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.

However, it is not Dr. Rizk’s expertise alone that attracts throngs of international patients. His office also offers highly unique amenities designed to enhance patient comfort and convenience. Original artwork lines the walls of the Park Avenue practice, making the waiting room more of a gallery than a standard, stark physician’s office. Patients also enjoy a state-of-the-art JCAHO accredited surgical suite equipped with the latest technologies to ensure the highest standard of safety and care.

For patients looking to turn their visit into a vacation, Dr. Rizk’s staff can also function like luxury travel agents, and plan deluxe hotel accommodations for his patients who are in town for surgery. Dr. Rizk even performs “hotel calls” and his minimally invasive surgical techniques ensure his patients are able to enjoy all Manhattan has to offer.

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