Voted by peers to New York Magazine's 2013 Top Doctors - Facial Plastic Surgery; Rhinoplasty Revision; and Nasal Surgery.

Dr. Sam Rizk has been chosen as a Top Facial Plastic Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist by Castle Connolly, the #1 Organization which selects Top Physicians in every field based on recommendations by their peers. Dr. Rizk has also published his original techniques in many plastic surgery journals, which requires peer review by other plastic surgeons to deem it original and worthy of publication. Dr. Rizk is often selected by doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals to do their plastic surgery.


Dr. Rizk's philosophy is a customized facelift and necklift with jawline and cheek definition. Dr. Rizk does many different types of facelift and necklift surgery and customizes the lift to your face and degree of aging. One lift does not fit all patients and Dr. Rizk does not have a "signature procedure" because each face is different.

Dr. Rizk's philosophy in his lifts is a natural lift which avoids the "pulled" look of older skin lifts. He also does a facelift which not only makes a patient look YOUNGER, but also MORE ATTRACTIVE. This is an important concept because Dr. Rizk's facelifts also reposition volume from the jowls into the cheeks. He lifts in the deeper layers which encompass not only skin and muscle, but ALSO jowl FAT. This repositioning of volume is important because it creates definition, rather than just "tightness" and it looks more natural. The loose muscles in the neck are pulled and tightened behind the ears and also in the middle under the chin from a small incision under the chin.

Dr. Rizk also pioneered the use of 3-Dimentional high definition telescope systems to visualize the face better in the deeper planes, making it a much safer procedure which avoids blood vessels and other structures. With this 3D telescope technology, the scars are smaller and the recuperation is faster because the surgery becomes very precise. Rapid recovery is just as important for Dr. Rizk's New York City Park Avenue practice as is a natural and long-lasting result.

Widely respected for his advanced minimally invasive application of ground breaking surgical techniques, Dr. Sam Rizk's approach is based on philosophy that each individual procedure is tailored and customized to the individual needs of each patient. He uses minimally invasive endoscopic techniques to reduce downtime. Dr. Rizk is focused not only on a natural result but also on the speed of a patient's recovery. To optimize this intent Dr. Rizk uses preoperative as well as intraoperative and postoperative minimally invasive techniques and medications to achieve this rapid healing.
