Top Rhinoplasty NYC Facial Plastic Surgeon Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, Sees Surge in Cosmetic Surgery Requests as a Result of Social Media

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 13, 2013

In this digital age, social media has a growing impact on how we view ourselves, leading some self-critics to embrace plastic surgery as a fast way fix their perceived flaws.

Noticing the impact of this trend, New York Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Sam Rizk, MD, FACS (, has seen a notable increase in requests for surgery as a result of social media scrutiny. At his Manhattan practice, Dr. Rizk notes that over the past year, thirty to fifty percent of his patients who want work done cite the way they appear on social media as a major impetus in their decision to pursue surgery. Of these requests perpetuated by social media, the eyes and nose are the primary area of focus.

“Like it or not, I don’t see this trend slowing down anytime soon,” says Dr. Rizk. “The more we are bombarded with our own image, the more opportunities we have to pick apart and fixate on certain areas. This can become an obsession and spur people on to seek cosmetic correction. Between high definition television, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram, how you look in photos and video clips has definitely become a driver for all cosmetic procedures from Botox to neck lifts.”

Known for his deft hand and industry leading surgical techniques, Dr. Rizk is a pioneer in the use of high-definition three-dimensional technology. With this advanced procedure, Dr. Rizk is able to ensure greater efficiency, precision and accuracy during surgery. Patients benefit from less bruising and scarring, plus an expedited recovery (five days versus the standard two weeks) and a highly natural-looking outcome.

A strong advocate of artistically customized service and superior patient care, Dr. Rizk urges all prospective patients to do their homework prior to any elective surgery. He advises patients educate themselves and to choose a board-certified surgeon who specializes in the face, head and neck to optimize chances of a favorable outcome.

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