Accreditation

Dr. Rizk is one of a few NYC plastic surgeons who have achieved double board-certification in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as head and neck surgery. He is the director of a JCAHO accredited surgical suite, Manhattan Facial Plastic Surgery, PLLC.

Additionally, Dr. Rizk is a Realself Top Doctor, where he relies on more than 20 years of combined experience to professionally answer questions sent by patients from around the globe. Furthermore, he has been chosen as one of Castle Connolly’s Best Doctors in the NY Metro Area for facial plastic surgery.

Dr. Rizk has been featured on many popular television shows and in several magazines in the US, as well as overseas. As a recognized expert on the latest advances in facial plastic surgery techniques, he was inducted into The Rhinoplasty Society, a non-profit organization of the most respected nasal surgeons in the world.

An Artistic Approach

Dr. Rizk has developed his own techniques and published his methods for customizing procedures to the patient’s facial structure and degree of aging, as opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach.

As more and more younger patients, including men, are requesting cosmetic facial procedures, Dr. Rizk believes his newer techniques are better tailored to them. To that end, Dr. Rizk authored some landmark articles on facelift, rhinoplasty, and blepharoplasty surgery, describing new techniques to be applied differently to younger versus older patients.

Dr. Rizk Shares the Art of Facial Plastic Surgery.

Humanitarian Work

Dr. Rizk is admired for his vast humanitarian efforts and expertise in rhinoplasty, secondary rhinoplasty and facelift techniques around the world. As an active member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) FACE-TO-FACE program, he performs free reconstructive surgery on victims of domestic violence, people with congenital deformities, and those suffering from traumatic injuries from war.

Since 1992, FACE TO FACE has conducted humanitarian and educational programs all over the world. Dr. Rizk is committed to assisting patients, using his surgical skills and expertise to improve lives by operating on the faces, necks, and noses of people in need.

He is honored to volunteer as the Chief Consultant Reconstructive Surgeon, performing reconstructive surgery on children who have suffered from severe deformities related to facial cancer at Hospital 57257 in Cairo, Egypt. Hospital 57357 is a non-profit organization founded by Mrs. Suzanne Mubarak, First Lady of the Arab Republic of Egypt and the Chairwoman of the Board of Trustees of the Children’s Cancer Hospital, which is funded by private donations.

As Dr. Rizk says, “It is a very rewarding experience to give something back to people who really need help. I consider it an honor and a privilege to participate in these extraordinary missions for reconstructive surgery, and I look forward to caring for more children and hopefully changing their lives.”

Dr. Rizk and Little Baby Face Foundation

Dr. Rizk serves on the board of directors of the Little Baby Face Foundation, an organization that transforms the lives of children born with facial deformities through corrective surgeries. He is part of the team of surgeons who volunteer their time and talents to provide corrective surgery and medical support to children and their families in financial need around the world, including Mongolia, Peru, Nigeria, and Philippines.

The treatments can be complex: On average, two surgeries lasting three hours each are needed. For Dr. Rizk, serving the needs of others is worth it to see the smiles and tears of joy and happiness from the children and their families in knowing that they were expertly cared for.

Dr. Rizk has also been recognized with the 2012 Patients’ Choice Award for outstanding service and patient care, an honor bestowed on a small group of elite physicians nationwide.

Patients Choice AWARD

Patient’s Choice Award

Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, named Patients’ Choice Award Winner for 2012

NEW YORK, NY, December 21st, 2012 – Renowned New York City facial plastic surgeon, Sam Rizk, MD, FACS has been honored with a 2012 Patients’ Choice Award for his outstanding service and patient care. Compiled from patients’ online ratings, the award recognizes an elite group of physicians (only the top five percent nationwide) for their excellence in various components of care, including accuracy of diagnosis, amount of time spent with patients, bedside manner, and follow-up care, among others.

“I’m honored to receive an award that’s based on how my patients view the quality of care I provide. I strive each day to exceed my patients’ expectations with highly personalized services and I’m grateful that they’ve recognized my efforts,” said Dr. Rizk.

In addition to Dr. Rizk’s unsurpassed artistic vision, technical skill in facial plastic surgery, and superior surgical outcomes, his Upper East Side practice also offers a number of unique advantages to patients.

As a pioneer in the use of high-definition three-dimensional technology, Dr. Rizk is able to ensure greater efficiency, precision, and accuracy during surgery. Thanks to his state-of-the-art techniques, patients benefit from less bruising and scarring, plus an expedited recovery – generally five to seven days versus the standard two weeks.

Dr. Rizk believes that plastic surgery is as much an art as it is a science and takes into account all facial proportions and rounded edges (rather than pinched tips and harsh lines) to fit each patient’s face. The result is a natural-looking, extremely customized outcome.

Dr. Rizk also helps assuage patients’ fears before surgery with the innovative Face Touch Up application, which empowers patients to view their potential results. By simply uploading their photo, digital images from the front and side view can be altered in this program to get an idea of how the outcome will appear.

It is of the utmost importance to Dr. Rizk and his practice to not only deliver superior patient satisfaction but also to guarantee that the overall experience is as painless and anxiety-free as possible. With each consultation, Dr. Rizk is driven by the desire to help patients look better and
