Dr. Sam Rizk Pioneers Game-Changing, Rapid Recovery Rhinoplasty Techniques For Teens

Back to school beauty takes on a whole new meaning in the age of Instagram. Bullying and image over-load via social media can spawn insecurities that have a major impact on formative years, and beyond.

A study conducted by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery(AAFPRS) indicates that the main feature that comes under fire is the nose – making it the most requested surgical procedure among teens year after year. With its prominent position front and center on the face, the nose tends to be the prime target for self-scrutiny and bullying.

Manhattan facial plastic surgeon Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, sees these teens walk through his door all the time wishing to end bullying from their peers.

“When done for the right reasons, a rhinoplasty can give teens the confidence boost they need to excel in academics, friendships and extracurricular activities without being over-shadowed by appearance insecurities,” said Dr. Rizk. “The key is to reestablish facial balance while maintaining a natural result.”

The nose is the most prominent feature on the human face, so even a small change can affect a person’s appearance in a big way. A beautiful nose is a natural one that complements and fits harmoniously with the other facial features.

Dr. Rizk, a global innovator in facial plastic surgery, pioneered the use of high-definition three-dimensional endoscopic telescopes to better visualize the structures of the nose and perform a more precise surgery. The increased accuracy results in a more efficient procedure that requires no stitches, less bruising and scarring and one-third the recovery time of traditional surgeries.

Rhinoplasty can be an emotionally and physically gratifying operation in teenagers. However, before Dr. Rizk accepts any new teenage patient, he collaborates with families to ensure that teens and parents are aligned. Teenagers who undergo surgery with Dr. Rizk do very well and leave with a perfectly functioning, natural looking nose. Recovery in teens is fast. Not only do they heal more rapidly than adults, but their skin is more elastic. This means they achieve better results sooner than adults.
