I give a unique, customized, natural and beautiful lift with a rapid recovery. I DO NOT believe in or endorse the many named lifts (like weekend lift, 3 day lift, lifestyle lift, liquid lift etc). I believe in a long lasting lift, which not only rejuvenates but beautifies and compliments your face. It takes 1 week for most patients to resume normal activity except for strenuous excercise. The perception and creation of beauty in a face is an artistic innate quality which can be observed by looking at a surgeon's results, unrelated to training or experience. That being said, training and experience provide the tools necessary to achieve that goal, but are insufficient in and of themselves.

The Patient’s Choice for Facelifts

“My decision to have a facelift was a difficult and emotional one...Now when I look at myself I simply see a younger, more refreshed face, but still mine.” —JR

Manhattan’s Dr. Sam Rizk, a NY board certified surgeon in both Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology (head and neck surgery), has been widely recognized for his excellence and expertise in facial cosmetic surgery.

A specialist in face and neck procedures, he has frequently been featured in the media and lauded for his surgical artistry and his dramatic, yet natural-looking results. His popular modified deep-plane face lift procedure has found mention in top national publications such W and New York Times Magazine. Listed in Castle Connolly´s 2012 Top Doctors: New York Metro Area, Dr. Rizk underwent a rigorous selection process that began with unsolicited peer-nomination and was followed by a detailed evaluation of his practice including facelift reviews from his patients. It is the patient reviews that Dr. Rizk values deeply. Although the press accolades are prestigious, they are ultimately a mirror—one that reflects Dr. Rizk’s passion for his craft and his care and respect for his patients. In fact, it is the patient reviews that make a doctor’s true reputation.

One of the deepest rewards of his profession is to be able to affect a person’s life in a positive and transformative manner. Dr. Rizk understands that when a patient entrusts his or her most visible aspect to his hands, he has a responsibility to listen to the patient’s concerns and uncover the best solution for that individual and bring it forward. So, when a patient takes the time to write a personal thank you note, it indicates a confidence and gratitude that Dr. Rizk does not take for granted. It acknowledges their appreciation and satisfaction, which is a core reason that Dr. Rizk does what he does. Over the years, he has had the pleasure of reading notes and letters from patients, who have recounted their facelift experiences, from the first sign in at the reception desk to the unveiling of the rejuvenated face.

As a board member of Faculty of American College of Surgeons Dr. Rizk, contributes to the advancement of his field, innovating techniques and establishing best practices in cosmetic surgery. As practicing surgeon, his attentiveness to the subtleties of the individual faces of his patients has catapulted him to the top of the top doctor charts.
