New Survey Reveals Ever-Growing Demand for Rhinoplasty

According to a survey released March 2014 by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), rhinoplasty continues to increase in popularity, with more and more adolescents and adults opting to have the surgery each year. In fact, the survey revealed a 10 percent jump in rhinoplasty from 2012 to 2013.

As the most requested procedure for both men and women under the age of 35, rhinoplasty appeals to a more self-aware set of consumers who are looking to improve their appearance on social media sites and avoid bullying. Thanks to less invasive techniques, like those pioneered by top Manhattan facial plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty expert Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, nose jobs are becoming a more realistic option for many consumers.

Dr. Rizk has noted this growing “rhinopopularity” trend in his own New York City practice, with everyone from teens to his high profile domestic and international clientele showing increased interest in the procedure.

“As surgical techniques become more advanced we are able to offer patients the luxury of drastically reduced recovery times and minimal scarring,” says Dr. Rizk. “This is a huge factor in most people’s decision to have surgery, since the nose is such a prominent facial feature. Less invasive rhinoplasty techniques allow my patients to get back to work and school more quickly, and enjoy highly natural outcomes that are not easily detected by peers.”

Widely sought after for his superior skill and deft hand, Dr. Rizk developed the use of high-definition three-dimensional endoscopic telescopes to better visualize the structures of the nose and perform a more accurate surgery. The increased precision results a procedure that requires no stitches, less bruising and scarring and one-third the recovery time of traditional surgeries.

The use of this high definition imaging system provides a precise view of the inside of the nose. Dr. Rizk can avoid disrupting blood vessels, muscles, and other sensitive tissues so there is less bruising and swelling, which generates a quicker recovery.

Dr. Rizk’s office is located at 1040 Park Avenue in Manhattan.
