What Dr. Rizk and his team did with me was absolutely fantastic to use an understatement.
I really don't know where to start : from Frances which kindly addressed all surgery and post surgery concerns the day before, to the nurse who prepared me for the surgery (don't recall her name ....was too nervous :-) !) which was fantastic in trying to calm me down and reassuring me , from the Anesthesiologist which made the whole anesthesia process a totally smooth time, no pain at all ,no nausea at all , no anxiety at all , he carefully took into consideration my concerns of an agitated awaking and made that the more relaxed and easy after anesthesia awakening, to Tatiana which took out my splint and stitches without the smallest discomfort for me, from you who have been always available in addressing all my requests and organizational queries with a sweetness and a dedication which made myself feel at home though I was alone 4000 km far from my country and of course until Dr. Rizk the most important piece in this chain of perfection : I really do not know how he managed to do something which to me seems humanly impossible, I am 30 days after surgery and I am seeing incredible results; he exactly delivered what we agreed ,giving perfectly natural results however far better than starting point ,nobody could tell I had a nose job and though my nose is far better than original one , he has been able to address exactly the points of unhappiness I had without touching all the rest , it's more than surgery , it is pure art . I invested a lot in this thing and can say without any hesitation of any kind that it was totally worth it. Totally .
They are a perfect team , unique in the world ! An amazing mix of skilled ,caring and professional people .

My experience was excellent on all levels - everyone was caring and friendly. Both Dr. Rizk and Dr. Skolnick, the anesthesiologist were available for any questions that I had before and after my rhinoplasty procedure. I would not hesitate to repeat the procedure if and when it is needed - but only with Dr. Rizk. The results are better than I expected and all involved were with me supporting me emotionally every step of the way. Instructions for preparation were clear as were the after care instructutions. My experience could not have been any better! Thank you Dr. Rizk, Rosemarie, Dr. Skolnick, Dina, Tiatiana. I am so pleased with the results!

All I have is gratitude to everyone at the office. Everyone has exceptional skills and an unbelievable genuine concern. I don't think I would've ever had this opportunity to turn the clock back, if I had not met Dr. Rizk. I would be happy to be a reference for Dr. Rizk anytime.I love you all.

Dr. Samieh Risk is recommended via numerous sources as one of the most esteemed experts in his field. After a brief consultation with him I chose him as the surgeon for my rhinoplasty. I felt confident of my initial choice based on the numerous recommendations I read on this surgeon. On the day of the surgery I felt very disappointed he did not come over to speak to me directly to express any words of enouragement or ask in general how I felt. On follow-up sessions I did not feel he was overly concerned if the surgery came out to my expectations, but felt a quick response was given within 10 minutes and he needed to move on to the next patient. I paid this surgeon thousands of dollars to perform my rhinoplasty and as a result I expected to be treated as a patient who paid thousands, unfortunately that is not how I felt. I expected a caring ear and some level of emphathy for my concerns, as a result I would not recommend his services.

I was extremely fortunate to find Dr. Rizk. After having a previous nasal surgery, my nose was extremely pinched and I had difficulty breathing. Dr. Rizk was extremely thorough and made me feel at ease going into a second surgery to correct all of the problems from my previous surgery, which was done by another doctor.

My nose is absolutely beautiful and I can breathe incredibly well. I would recommend Dr. Rizk to anyone and am grateful I found him. The office staff was also incredible; all were very professional and kind. This was truly a wonderful experience!

I don??t know how to express my gratitude to this amazing doctor, artist and genius. He has changed my life. He made me look on the outside how I felt on the inside. Before the surgery, I felt a total disconnect between the inner me and the face I saw in the mirror. No matter how pretty I felt inside, my reflection was angular, coarse, old and unattractive. I was truly tortured. Now, because of his artistry I see soft, young...pretty.

It is three weeks post op. I had a rhinoplasty, lower bleph, eyelid lift and lower eyelid lasering. I had NO PAIN at ANY POINT during or after the surgery - AND that is WITHOUT morphine, codeine, demerol or any other pain medication - even a tylenol. I am totally recovered, no bruising or marks at all. No scars above my eyes. Incredible.

Dr. Rizk gave me a totally natural, beautiful nose. I had eyes that were overpronounced and slightly "buggy" - he amazingly fixed that. I can't even come close to expressing how good this doctor is - so stop reading and GO GO GO to Dr. Rizk.

Approximately six weeks ago, I had a septoplasty, rhinoplasty and turbinate reduction performed by Dr. Samieh Rizk. The quality of care I received was nothing short of amazing. From the initial consultation to my follow-up visits, I experienced the highest quality service I could have imagined. Hands down, his skill makes him the best! But when you couple that talent with his compassion and bedside manner, it is most apparent that there is no other surgeon like him. Each and every person on his staff is as high caliber as Dr. Rizk. Everyone was concerned not only for my well-being and comfort, but also for my knowledge about the procedure and recovery. I was very impressed with their thoroughness in the pre and post-op instructions. I respected the pride they took in their work and the desire they had to do the best job possible for me. Specifics about my recovery include the following:
-very minimal bruising that dissipated within 2 days post-op
-no pain or discomfort
-no drainage after the first day
-no fever
-no nausea or vomiting
-chapped lips that resulted from breathing through my mouth

Overall, this was the most incredible experience I have ever had at a doctor??s office. I would highly recommend Dr. Rizk.

My daughter had her nose fix, and more importantly, her sinuses. She no longer has sinus infections, and her nose looks so natural that NO ONE would think she had a "nose job". She was never black and blue and was going out 2 days post surgery!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

I've had my operation with Dr Rizk and my new nose is absolutely fabulous! I'm so happy! It's still extremely swollen but he used medpor to build my bridge which is narrow and straight. It's more defined even though the tip is still huge! Dr Rizk is a genuis! I'm esctatic and want to underline how thankful I am. I'm indebted to Dr. Rizk in a way, so thank you! I plan on helping others myself by sharing my pictures when the swelling goes down. God knows Africans/African Americans need all the help we can get, there are so few doctors who can deliver the natural results I have today!

When I decided to do a nose job I went to a few plastic surgeons in NYC. The consults were similar, and none gave me specific information about how they would improve the appearance of my nose. Dr. Rizk was different. He is thorough, honest, told me what he can and cannot do. I felt comfortable to choose him, and the surgery was quicker and recovery was faster than I expected. My nose looks good but not artificially "done".

I am 54 years old and until recently had an extremely large crooked nose. Despite having this unique look I didn??t think I was unattractive, and wasn??t an unhappy person ----but more on that later. One week ago I had rhinoplasty and a chin implant with Dr. Sam Rizk and now I couldn??t be happier.

I am a very careful person who does exhaustive research before making a decision. I came all the way from California to New York City because Dr. Rizk is the best! My entire experience with Dr. Rizk was excellent from dealing with his staff for prescriptions and arranging appointments, to the consultation, to the anesthesia and surgery and finally the after care.

Actually the surgery went so perfectly (as I knew it would) that the after care was mostly just icing for a couple of days while taking it easy and eating Jello. It bothered me that I wasn??t allowed to blow my nose, but I knew that in advance and found that taking a half valium before bed allowed me to get ample rest.

The instruction packet that Dr. Rizk??s office provided explained everything. Even though they told me there wouldn??t be much pain I was still really surprised at how mild the pain was. I usually hate icing, but I didn??t mind this at all --- the ice felt good.

Dr. Rizk and his staff are so professional and instilled me with so much confidence that I had no fear at all that things wouldn??t work out.

Because I had done so much research about the rhinoplasty procedure and because I had already interviewed with several surgeons before speaking with Dr. Rizk I was acutely aware of what my defects were and what improvements I was looking for. My interviews with the other surgeons were an ordeal. I was baffled at how often we were not on the same wave-length. Some surgeons offered such small improvements that it didn??t seem worthwhile. Other surgeons promised such amazing results that it gave me nightmares to think they would really cut away so much of my nose --- without exception I later found that those surgeons had a lot of angry and regretful patient reviews written about them on the internet. So please be careful who you choose!!

I was getting ready to give up on the whole rhinoplasty idea when I saw a small segment on the television show ??The Doctors? where Dr. Rizk did a beautiful rhinoplasty on a male patient with a large nose. The patient was a nice looking man before the rhinoplasty, but after the operation he was HOT! I found Dr. Rizk??s website and loved his before/after photos and contacted his office that very day. His staff is knowledgeable and absolutely delightful! They instructed me on how to take digital photos, were patient when I made mistakes, and were careful to collect the kind of images that Dr. Rizk needed to make an assessment. They told me that Dr. Rizk needed a couple of days to study my photos and then we could have a telephone interview. What a delightful interview that was. I could tell that he was very experienced and that he had studied my photos. I loved his explanations of what he would change and the way he included me in the decision process. He identified a problem with the breathing on my right side and said that he could fix it. I am 54 years old and was concerned about my sagging lower face. Dr. Rizk suggested that a chin implant would address this nicely, and although I didn??t want a chin implant I agreed to go with his recommendation because I am such a fan of his work.

I absolutely love my new jaw line even more than my lovely new nose! This man is amazing and I??ll bet every one of his patients loves him as much as I do.

My 29 year relationship has been falling apart for the last 2 years because of my husband??s mid-life crisis, and I never thought that getting plastic surgery could help, but this has boosted my spirits so much that I consider it life changing. I was urged by a family member to look into rhinoplasty and I grudgingly agreed. I??ve always taken care of my body (eating right, lots of exercise, vitamin supplements, low alcohol consumption, healthy hobbies, etc.) but I was raised to believe that personality was more important than looks and so I tried not to let my extremely large nose cloud my life. I had girlfriends that I cherished and male friends who told me that I was beautiful, but having the love of my life turn away from me broke my heart. Now that I look hot (and I really think I do!) I can understand the meaning of ??there are plenty of fish in the sea?. And just because one guy isn??t in love with me anymore (although this is terrible) it isn??t the end of the world. Thank you Dr. Rizk! You can??t know what you did for me and I will consider you my friend forever!

My daughter is 16 years old and recently had Rhinoplasty surgery with Dr. Rizk. My wife and I spent quite a bit of time, trying to find, who we thought would be the best doctor, to perform this surgery. After some debate we decided to go with Dr.Rizk. I must tell you, from the moment you walk in to Dr. Rizk's office, you begin to feel you have made the right choice. After meeting with Dr. Rizk, your confidence in his abilities overwhelms any fears you might have. He answered every question we had. He took the time to educate us on why he uses certain techniques. He went over his philosophy and what he is going to acomplish with this procedure. The day of the surgery came, and our confidence in Dr. Rizk was rewarded. Everything he told us during our consultation became reality. Two weeks have gone by since the procedure and you can not tell that my daughter had rhinoplasty surgery. As advertised, there was minimal swelling and bruising. She hardly had any discomfort after 3 days, post surgery. She now has a beautiful nose, that is stronger and more functional. To Dr. Rizk and his entire staff, we Thank You for your excellent work, and the professional way in which you conduct yourselves. We have, and will continue, to recomemnd you, to all our friends and family.

Before meeting with Dr. Rizk, I had had 2 previous surgeries on my nose; both unable to correct my breathing issues, and made my nose look even worse. For my third surgery, I decided to do thorough research and find The Best. I checked the websites of all the plastic/ENT surgeons in my area and I realized that the noses on all of the post-op photographs appeared identical and artificial.
So, I decided to look in New York City. Again, I checked the websites of many surgeons and I found a similar trend.
Then, I saw Dr. Rizk??s website and I was amazed. The after pictures looked so natural and elegant. And you could see the beautiful results after 1 year, but also even only after 1 week. It was the work of not only a great surgeon, but of an amazing artist.
I made an appointment for a consultation. The degree to which the office was involved into the process really amazed me.
I had made a decision. I found the best and I knew that I would have my surgery done there or nowhere at all.
The whole process was extremely professional. The appointments, the coordination with my hometown??s hospitals for the blood work, medications, the phone calls to ensure the smoothness of the process and of course, the surgery itself.
The day before the surgery the anesthesiologist called me personally. The day of the surgery, the atmosphere of the office was so soothing. The nurse took me in and she made sure that I had everything I could possibly need. The surgery day was nothing less than completely pleasant. When I woke up the nurse was holding my hand and helped me dress. To be honest, I really did not need any help getting dressed at all or getting up or walking.
During my 2 previous surgeries, I was very dizzy when I woke up, and I needed a lot of help dressing and walking (I even needed a wheelchair) and as soon as I was home I just needed to sleep, I wasn??t myself, and I was drowsy for a full week. With my previous surgeries there was a lot of swelling and bruising, I could not get any air through my nose for 1 week after the surgeries, with the mouth getting painfully dry and extremely uncomfortable.
After Dr. Rizk operated on me, I did not experience any dizziness or drowsiness. The front desk ladies called a personal car to bring me and my family to the hotel. When I arrived at the hotel, I watched movies for the rest of the day. I felt fresh and full of energy (I could have never expected that based on my 2 previous surgeries). Everything afterwards went exactly as it was described to me. The office called me the following days to make sure I was feeling well. I could breathe through my nose only 1 day after the surgery!!! I was extremely happy. I could sleep through the night breathing so easily. The bruising was minimal, almost non-existent. One week later Dr. Rizk removed the splint and cleaned the inside of my nose and I cannot describe how beautiful my breathing has been ever since. At that time there was minimal swelling and I could return back to work. Nobody at the office would guess what I had done. My colleagues just kept saying that I looked refreshed.
Needless to say, Dr. Rizk??s approach is very gentle to the tissues, extremely atraumatic. His 3D visualization of the area with his microscope technique is unique and allows him to only cut the tissue that needs to be removed, without tearing all the other tissues along the way. Thus the swelling and bruising is minimal and the recovery faster. He did all the work on my nose without any external incisions and with no scars. What separated Dr. Rizk from the rest of the plastic surgeons I had experienced were not only his techniques, but also the ability to see what the patient wants, and to transform their appearance in a very natural way and in balance with the face.
Dr. Rizk??s techniques, artistic eye and hands make him an unsurpassed plastic surgeon, but his warmth, beautiful heart and sincerity make him a wonderful DOCTOR.
If you are looking to have plastic surgery done you have found The Best! I wish I did not go through 2 previous surgeries, general anesthesia, bruising, swelling, healing time, pain, difficulty breathing, scarring, time off from work and the expenses. I wish I had done my research the first time and found Dr. Rizk. And if you have insufficient funds, do not allow yourself to be tempted by the cheaper prices you might find out there. It is your face and your life and you wouldn??t want to risk either.

I would like to thank with all my heart Dr. Rizk and his stuff for the amazing care they have provided for me. Their professionalism and personal approach made this a very pleasant experience both for me and for my family. Thank you!

Sincerely,
S.M.

Before meeting with Dr. Rizk, I had had 2 previous surgeries on my nose; both unable to correct my breathing issues, and made my nose look even worse. For my third surgery, I decided to do thorough research and find The Best. I checked the websites of all the plastic/ENT surgeons in my area and I realized that the noses on all of the post-op photographs appeared identical and artificial.
So, I decided to look in New York City. Again, I checked the websites of many surgeons and I found a similar trend.
Then, I saw Dr. Rizk??s website and I was amazed. The after pictures looked so natural and elegant. And you could see the beautiful results after 1 year, but also even only after 1 week. It was the work of not only a great surgeon, but of an amazing artist.
I made an appointment for a consultation. The degree to which the office was involved into the process really amazed me.
I had made a decision. I found the best and I knew that I would have my surgery done there or nowhere at all.
The whole process was extremely professional. The appointments, the coordination with my hometown??s hospitals for the blood work, medications, the phone calls to ensure the smoothness of the process and of course, the surgery itself.
The day before the surgery the anesthesiologist called me personally. The day of the surgery, the atmosphere of the office was so soothing.

I may be one of Dr. Sam Rizk's biggest fans. Unlike many of the people here, I had a complete rhinoplasty/septoplasty with Dr. Rizk about 7 years ago. I was working for a world renown aesthetic dentist at the time, who had referral relations with other "older" plastic surgeons in NYC and LA ..I literally went on close to what I'd say 15 consultations and was NOT IMPRESSED w/ any of these so called "masters". Finally I came across Dr. Sam Rizk. As soon as I met him, saw his pre/post op patient photos and consulted with him for 30 minutes..I knew that this was going to be the surgeon who would transform my nose and also help me breath again!
His confidence was both refreshing and reassuring. I had my surgery at MEETH (This was before his current Park Avenue location- which, by the way, is state of the art!). The procedure took 2.5 hours..and although I was initially nervous, once I saw Sam, I knew I was in the best possible care.
I woke up with a small headache and feeling a bit groggy..and was expecting to be laid out for the next week..
To my surprise I had no bruising, minor swelling and very little pain, I didn't even touch my prescribed pain killers, only needed a few extra strength Tylenols! A tiny hard band-aid looking cast was placed horizontally over the majority of my nose so for 4 days I couldn't tell what it looked like...but I knew I could breath better than I ever had before (Dr. Rizk does not pack the nose, I thought that was also GREAT).
I had my surgery on a Thursday morning and the following Monday I was off to see Dr. Rizk to see my new nose for the very first time. I don't know exactly how to describe the feeling of seeing your own face and the one major imperfection on your face, now perfected after 24 yrs. I rarely took pictures before that cast came off, I never felt confident about myself before that cast came off and I never truly felt beautiful before he took that cast off...I had tears streaming down my face that morning because I had this gorgeous perfect nose on the center of my face now, that opened up all of my other features..and for the first time in my life- I felt beautiful.
Dr. Rizk not only changed my own perception of myself and re-instilled my confidence, but he cured my snoring and breathing problems as well. To this day I could breath clearly and it has also helped with running and working out, which used to leave me short breathed and winded.
In the past 7 years I have referred tons of noses to Dr. Rizk- friends, family, colleagues and clients.
The way that this one surgeon made me feel, made me want to share that gift with everyone who I knew felt that an imperfect facial feature held them back from living their life.
I now own and run a tri-coastal referral service for the BEST OF THE BEST doctors..and to think it all started with Dr. Sam Rizk. He truly is a genius! I can speak on behalf of my own experience with him and about a hundred others whom I have referred to him. I have no qualms speaking to anyone who might question his skill. Dr. Rizk is the ONLY facial plastic surgeon that I would EVER recommend. Trust me..I have done my homework and met the "WHO'S WHO" of plastic surgery! Feel blessed for finding this man..he changed my life.

Dr. Samieh Rizk is a miracle worker. I had acute sleep apnea and would wake up at night, gasping for air. Dr. Rizk determined the cause of my discomfort to be a severly deviated septum. After the operation I experienced little to no swelling and absolutely no discomfort. I continue to see Dr. Rizk about 3/4 times during the first year after the procedure to make certain the nasal passages remain open. Everything is perfect. I was recommended to Dr. Rizk by another doctor who also sings his praises. Thus far I have recommended Sam Rizk to several other people who agree that he is a superb physician. His medical technique is state of the art and his bedside manner is warm and caring. His staff follows his example and therefore patients get the best possible care and attention for their medical and reconstructive situations.

From the moment I walked into Dr. Rizk's office, I felt so comfortable. The waiting room is so beautiful and inviting, and the staff is amazing. They're all very warm and friendly and they welcome you with a big smile. Now, to talk about Dr. Rizk. He is the most wonderful, kind, friendly, caring doctor that I've ever met, He immediately made me feel relaxed and I knew as soon as I met him and saw his work that he would be the doctor who would do my plastic surgery.
I had a facelift, necklift, brow lift, and lower eyelids done on February 24th, 2010. I couldn't believe that I didn't experience any pain or discomfort at all! Dr. Rizk is a genius and an artist in his work. He made my face look so completely natural. I'm so satified with the way I look and I feel so lucky to have met and have Dr. Rizk perform these surgeries on me. I went to a wedding this past Saturday, March 20th, 2010. It wasn't even a month after the surgery and I wore minimal make-up, because thanks to Dr. Rizk's expertise, I didn't need much. Everyone there that knew me went wild! Now they all want to do exactly what I had done. Dr. Rizk is a gift. May God bless him always,.

I'm in my early seventies and had never had any cosmetic surgery until two months ago when I turned my face over to Dr. Sam Rizk. I couldn't be more pleased with the whole process. From the beginning, it was Dr. Rizk's meticulous attention to detail and genuine concern for the challenges of my particular situation that made me feel confident that he was the right surgeon for me. There was absolutely no pressure or pretention; rather, he conveyed a passion for his work combined with a clear sense of surgical skill and artistic sensibility. These qualities along with a feeling of warmth, competence, and ease permeate the whole office; everyone who works with him helps create the most secure and relaxed ambience possible. I'm grateful to Dila, the office manager, who goes out out of her way to answer questions and soothe anxiety, to Frannie who made sure I had what I needed and organized the marvelous nursing care, to Rosemarie and Jill for prepping me while keeping me enchanted with memories of Paris, to the anesthesiologist who sedated me so smoothly. The last thing I remember pre-surgery is Dr. Rizk marking my face, my saying I felt like I was on an adventure and his replying, "Yes, a good adventure." The next thing I remember is waking up feeling great, no nausea at all. And in the next few days, I experienced minimal discomfort and very rapid healing. As for the results, since I'm still working fulltime in a job that requires a lot of people interaction, I wanted a conservative procedure that would leave me looking refreshed and like myself. My other concern was that I had dry eye syndrome and an unusual amount of skin on my upper lids due to a prior medical problem. And per my request, Dr. Rizk removed just enough skin to take away the fatique I've felt for so long. And you can actually see that I have eyes, eyes which look and feel rested. My nose looks younger and more harmonious with my face. My jowls have become cheeks again. And I have a jawline and an elegant neck. Honest! But the best part is that the work he did looks completely natural. Not one person has aked if I've had a facelift. Friends, colleagues, people I work with, and people in my apartment building have said that I must have had a great vacation, that I look so "radiant," "fit," "glowing," "happy." When I reported this to Dr. Rizk, he smiled and said, "That's what I like to hear." And I believe him. Thanks Sam!

I want to thank Dr. Rizk for having a patient as nervous as I was about the procedures.He is not only a perfectionist and a master artist at his profession as a plastic surgeon, but he was the epitome of calmness and friendship before, during and after the surgery. He was there for me 24/7. I want to thank Dr. Rizk for restoring that good old confident feeling of enjoying the sheerjoy of looking in the mirror.

My decision to have a facelift was very difficult and emotional one. I had several other consultations, but no other physician made me feel that I could go through this procedure with no trepidation. Upon meeting Dr. Rizk I instantly felt at east. I recognized his artistic abilities, skill and amazing personality, which helped me to my final devision. I will always be grateful to Dr. Rizk. Now when I look at myself, I simply see a younger,more refreshed face, but still mine.

I strongly recommend Dr. Rizk. I am a 27 year old who had a revision rhinoplasty and CO2 laser done to my face. After my nose was broken in an accident it had to be reset, which left me with scar tissue and a slight asymmetry. In addition, after years of being in the sun, I began noticing sun damage, especially under my eyes. After hearing only amazing things about Dr. Rizk, I talked to him about doing a revision and laser treatment. From the moment I walked into his office I felt so comfortable because I knew I was in good hands. We talked about how I didn??t want to change my nose, just make a slight adjustment. Immediately following my surgery I felt great. I had no pain, swelling or bruising. It was unbelievable! Right away I could see how beautiful my nose looked and how much tighter my skin felt. It has now been 1 1/2 months since my surgery and every day my nose and my skin keep looking better and better! Although my revision was subtle, it made my entire face more symmetrical and proportional. Since having the laser done my skin tone is more even and much softer. My under eyes are much smoother and tighter as well. I have received so many compliments. I am extremely happy with my results! Dr. Rizk is very passionate about what he does and pays strong attention to each and every detail, which can be seen in the results. He really listened to what I was hoping to achieve, and I couldn??t be happier =) He is a true artist!
Thank you so much Dr. Rizk and staff!!

It has been one week since my revisional rhinoplasty and upper eyelids blethoplasties. I must state how very pleased I am with the very natural looking results. I am breathing much better. I had very little discomfort and a faster recovery than I anticipated. As Dr. Rizk was aware, I was extremely frightened about the fact of having surgery, but Dr. RIzk's caring, excellent bedside manner reassured me that you would do the neccesary procedures to my satisfaction.

I am a Jamaica woman who had two previous surgeries that left my nose looking not only un-natural but, simply put, weird looking. I was very unhappy as I thought and was left to believe (by the last surgeon who worked on my nose before Dr. Rizk) that my nose will never "look any better" (I wish he would have told me this before I gave him several thousand dollars! ) I waited two years before I started my research again as I was left feeling demoralized and wondering if I had a problem and was obsessed with plastic surgery, but people from my Island are pretty expressive and would tell me my nose looks strange. I found Dr. Rizk upon my search; I did not think twice about the consult fee and is now happy that I didn't allow that to be a deterrent. I felf completely understood by Dr. Rizk; he was honest with me, and did not tell me he could perform the surgery but told me he would need my records from my previous surgeries before giving me an answer; I realized that this was not a money issue for him, but that he knows and enjoys his craft as Beethoven did his. I had my records sent to his office and was called two weeks later for another appointment with Dr. Rizk; he was very honest with me and told me exactly what he could do given the extent of the damages from the previous surgeries and the nature of my nose. Well, I had surgery with Dr. Rizk on 01/13/2010 and the man out performed himself! He was modest when he told me what he could do because my nose looks perfect in my eyes. I really was not looking for perfection but to have a nose that looks normal; my nose not only looks normal, but it blends with my ethnic face. I have never felt so happy in my own face; I know I have good features, but my nose has always gotten in the way of people seeing those features, that is no longer true. I really could go on and on about Dr. Rizk and what he did for me, but fear that people may think this is farce. If you want to talk to me about my experience with Dr. Rizk and his amazingly friendly and professional staff, please feel free to contact them and they will contact me (upon my consent) and I will be more than happy to share my experience and try to help put you at ease with this Doctor's amazing abilities. As a Psychotherapist, I'm not about perfection, I believe we all need to function and lead healthy lives; sometimes surgery can help us enhance our lives and allow for healthy life, but we need to be realistic. Dr. Rizk believes in creating a realistic nose, one that makes sense for the face and one's ethnicity.
Dr. Rizk, you really sold yourself short when you told me what you could do for me, because 4 weeks post my surgery, nose looks and is the best I have seen it, all my life!
Thank you Dr. Rizk and staff!

Well, I had surgery with Dr. Rizk on 01/13/2010 and the man out performed himself! He was modest when he told me what he could do because my nose looks perfect in my eyes. I really was not looking for perfection but to have a nose that looks normal; my nose not only looks normal, but it blends with my ethnic face. I have never felt so happy in my own face; I know I have good features, but my nose has always gotten in the way of people seeing those features, that is no longer true. I really could go on and on about Dr. Rizk and what he did for me, but fear that people may think this is farce. If you want to talk to me about my experience with Dr. Rizk and his amazingly friendly and professional staff, please feel free to contact them and they will contact me (upon my consent) and I will be more than happy to share my experience and try to help put you at ease with this Doctor's amazing abilities. As a Psychotherapist, I'm not about perfection, I believe we all need to function and lead healthy lives; sometimes surgery can help us enhance our lives and allow for healthy life, but we need to be realistic. Dr. Rizk believes in creating a realistic nose, one that makes sense for the face and one's ethnicity.
Dr. Rizk, you really sold yourself short when you told me what you could do for me, because 4 weeks post my surgery, nose looks and is the best I have seen it, all my life!
Thank you Dr. Rizk and staff!

I would like to strongly recommend Dr. Samieh Rizk to any prospective patient seeking a rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty. I am a doctor of Indian descent who practices in Las Vegas. In December 2008, I had a primary rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills that yielded results opposite to my goals. I was devastated and began a journey of intense research to find a "dream" surgeon who could correct my nose. Dr. Rizk was the answer to my prayers as he has the most refined esthetic sense that translates into perfected surgical skill with innovative techniques. From his 3D High-Definition system to his patented cartilage sculpting techniques to his regimen of rapid recovery, I promise that you will be investing in a surgeon who will exceed your expectations. A picture is worth a thousand words and I invite you to please refer to Dr. Rizk's blog under male rhinoplasty to see my case (www.drsamrizk.com, 31 yr old Indian male doctor...). In just one week after my revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Rizk, I have results that most people would see in one year if they are lucky. Dr. Rizk understands skin type and cartilage strength. I have the thickest skin with the weakest cartilage and add scar tissue to the mix from my old surgery. Look at my definition in one week despite all those challenges. No one can achieve this level of refinement other than Dr. Rizk. For those who are seeking a rhinoplasty for the first time or for those who have had multiple surgeries, as a medical professional, I cannot emphasize enough the blessing of Dr. Rizk to be that surgeon who will deliver your dream. He is the culmination of perfection and you will see his heart and sincerity in his eyes when you meet him. Please do not pass up a once in a lifetime chance to have the face you always dreamed of. I truly believe that Dr. Rizk is to modern facial plastic surgery as Leonardo DaVinci was to art and what Shakespeare was to literature. God bless you Dr. Rizk for giving me unparalleled confidence and a new zest for life!

I would like to let everyone know about Dr Rizk and his staff.I am 61 years old with two married children and five grandchildren and married to the same man for 42 years,he now says I look 30.I wanted to find the best plastic surgeon I could find.I typed on my computer 10 best plastic surgeons in NYC and his name and site came up and then I found out that he is not only the best in NY but he is also considered one of two of the best facial surgeons in the world.My dermatoligist sent me to a surgeon that she said was very good.She said that she would have to shave my hair and that I would end up with a big scar so I ran out of her office with a determanation to find the best plastic surgeon in NY.So when I found Dr Rizk it was a God send.He is by far the most talented and skilled doctor I could hope for.I had the surgery two months later and in three days I went shopping with no black and blue marks and now two months later I look great and have no scars.My husband and I are so happy with the results we will be forever grateful to Dr Rizk and also to his staff who treated me like family.The only negative aspect came from my daughter who says I look younger than her and my husband is so proud of me that he doesn't mind everyone thinks I am his daughter

THANK YOU

LOVE, KATHY

I was recommended to Dr. Rizk by an operating room nurse at Manhattan Eye and Ear hospital who, for the past 30 years, witnessed the work of many plastic surgeons. She told me Dr. Rizk was the very best.

I also met someone who had an eye lift and rhinoplasty done by Dr. Rizk. He was so happy with his work, he brought his daughter in for a similar procedure. After meticulously researching Dr. Rizk's credentials and discussing my concerns, I became impressed by many things.

He took the time to really listen. He was also wise enough to tell me if something wasn't right for my face. The passion and pride he took in his work, the way his eyes lit up as he explained his newest, most cutting edge procedures, his unwavering commitment to finding ways to make the work better, was nothing short of inspirational.

He gives so much, yet he is so humble that no one knows how much he gives to those less fortunate. He even takes time to teach other surgeons and mentor them.All this reveals a deeply philanthropic nature.

Dr. Rizk surrounds himself with the most competent staff and the most caring and well mannered assistants.His meticulous attention to every detail from his relaxing and beautifully decorated office, to the most perfectly proportioned results, makes him the most premiere plastic surgeon.

I called many patients before my surgery. They wrote beautiful testimonials. All sounded thrilled with their results so I decided to have lots of procedures in one day. I was terrified before the surgery but absolutely thrilled with the results. It was the best decision I ever made.

Dr. Rizk took more than twenty years off my face and my kids are upset that I no longer look like their Mother but more like a sibling.He is the most talented artist and the most precise surgeon. He knows the secret to making anyone look young and beautiful.

With all his many awards, celebrity clients, and amazing accomplishments...he is still the kindest, most humble and gentle man you will ever have the privilege to know.
He is so honest, that you can trust him to perform any procedure.It will be done with the least amount of trauma, with minimal discomfort and bruising and you will be back to your normal routine in no time.

Dr. Rizk is the consummate professional, warm and genuine and very caring. He keeps his promises, is excellent on followup care and treats everyone, from patients to staff... with the utmost courtesy and respect. His character, honesty and integrity are of the highest caliber and his work ethic and talents are beyond reproach.

Anyone who is wise enough to choose Dr. Rizk as their surgeon, will be making the best decision of their lives.

I had revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Rizk about three weeks ago. Thus far, I have been very pleased with the entire experience, from my first consultation to the after-care, and the outcome. I met with approximately a dozen plastic surgeons before choosing Dr. Rizk to perform what was considered a very complex surgery, due to the fact that after a prior surgery seven years ago, I was left with almost no bridge, an inverted V deformity, a very pointy tip, daily nose bleeds, as well as a slew of breathing problems caused by turbinates. It was apparent that Dr. Rizk was the most trained and skilled, and possessed the most knowledge and expertise in his field. His staff was extremely professional, reassuring, and caring. To say that I was nervous is an understatement?the entire staff, from nurses, assistants, and office manager were all very accommodating to my needs and were always available for me, including Dr. Rizk, who promptly returned my call on a Sunday morning. The anesthesiologist was superb. Each time I have been under anesthesia in the past, I had become nauseas and ultimately vomited. This time, however, I??d had the complete opposite experience, and in fact, was quite hungry after my surgery. My pre-operative visit with Dr. Rizk was comprehensive and he and his nurse were very thorough, providing me with a care package full of over-the-counter necessities and samples of preparations I would need. My safety was always a priority, as Dr. Rizk ensured that I was in good health by ordering a battery of blood and heart tests prior to surgery. I truly had a pain-free experience and would highly recommend Dr. Rizk. My cast was removed about two weeks ago and I am still very swollen (Dr. Rizk said swelling can take up to a year to go down), so am unable to see the entirely finished result, but am very happy thus far. I have never been able to breath this well in my entire life and since the surgery, have not had a single nose bleed in over two weeks, which is a new record for me! Just for that alone, Dr. Rizk is a hero in my book.

I had a rhinoplasty surgery with him last Wednesday. HE IS GREAT. He is knowledgeable, his staff is very professional and the office is new, clean and sophisticated. I liked how he approaches the surgery. He looks very interested in what he does, and it shows in the results. He told me he does at least 4 nose jobs per week, and it shows in his skills. My recovery is pretty fast, I go on Friday for a follow up, I think my nose will look so nice!

I am a doctor's daughter. When I need a doctor, I always do my research. Often I ask other doctor friends- 'Where would you send your wife?, Who would you trust?'' For cosmetic surgery, the answer came back from many sources- Dr. Samieh Rizk . There are tons of cosmetic surgeons in NYC or in LA. Some are just bad, some are fairly good, and then there is the rare surgeon who is a true artist. Dr. Rizk specializes in the face and neck. If you want the best work, the finest care, and the most amazing, natural results, this is the place for you. He is a perfectionist, and he will never be satisfied unless you are. He is caring, and gifted, and most importantly, he is the real deal. It's more than worth your time and money to go for a consultation, meet Dr. Rizk and his excellent staff, tour the facility, look at his work and talk to some of his other patients, like me. If its all about your face, this is the one person you should meet.
