Certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Rizk’s philosophy with all facelift procedures is to maintain the patient’s natural appearance, enhance youthful features and offer long-lasting results. That is part of the reason patients travel from other countries to meet Dr. Rizk and have facelift surgery at his practice in New York. He leverages an artistic eye, high definition 3-D telescopes, absorbable stitches, the latest advancements of stem cell fat transplantation, high-definition endoscopic surgery and extensive training to improve facial structures while providing natural looking results.

Dr. Rizk does not believe that there is a “one size fits all” solution when it comes to facial plastic surgery. This is why he customizes each facelift procedure to meet his patients' specific aesthetic goals. He discusses concerns such as loose skin, saggy jowls, and baggy eyes with each patient and together they decide whether a full facelift or mini facelift or another procedure is the best option. Often, he combines facelift and neck lift procedures to offer dual benefits and a speedier recovery.

Dr. Rizk is among a small number of doctors that uses the deep plane facelift surgery technique. To reverse the signs of aging, he repositions drooping facial tissue, developing enhanced definition over the jawline. This approach uses micro-incisions, nicely concealed by the hairline so scars are not visible. During deep plane facelift surgery, the deeper layer of facial skin becomes responsible for lifting the sagging facial tissue. This means that patients won’t develop an unnatural or tight appearance since the skin is never pulled.

In addition, Dr. Rizk pioneered the rapid recovery facelift, which is a facial plastic surgery procedure that allows patients to be back out in public within just 5 days. His technique lifts sagging skin and tissue to get more natural results than the “weekend lift” or “short-scar lift”. Dr. Rizk has been featured on Fox discussing the benefits of the Rapid Recovery Facelift.
