"A major reason I went into plastic surgery is to help people. I’ve found out that people generally have problems, and don’t really have a specific medical or surgical problem that they can blurt out and tell me what to do. I enjoy the aesthetic and artistic aspects of plastic surgery, as well as the reconstructive side of plastic surgery. I love the fact that I can operate on young and old, men and women, and on various parts of the body. I still get excited about thinking of a new technique to enhance surgical results, or learning about a new process to get a better result for my patients."
"I do some medical mission work as well, not for the PR aspects, but because I am privileged to be able to help others. It still amazes me that a short 1-2 hour operation can help another person look and feel better, therefore achieving more in life."
"I have gone to Guatemala several times, and I have operated on patients from Rwanda as well. It’s a lot of fun to help cleft lip and palate patients, burn patients, and do reconstructive surgery for people who would have delayed or no surgery due to their living situation. I’m also a member of Operation Access, a way for local San Franciscans to get free health care."

As a recognized expert on the latest advances in facial plastic surgery techniques, Dr. Rizk has written and lectured extensively on current concepts related to rhinoplasty and other facial plastic procedures. Dr. Rizk is a double board certified New York facial plastic surgeon and director of Manhattan Facial Plastic Surgery, PLLC.
Dr. Rizk was one of first to do the combined endonasal rhinoplasty and sinus/septal surgery procedures (article published in annals of plastic surgery), the pioneer of the 3 dimentional-virtual rhinoplasty surgery, which has dramatically increased precision and decreased recovery for rhinoplasty surgery. He is also known for his revision rhinoplasty surgery where he restores and corrects collapses, saddle noses, asymmetric noses, drooping tips, and hanging columellas and also improves the patient's breathing ability. Dr. Rizk uses tissue glue instead of conventional packing after rhinoplasty. He feels packing creates more swelling, is painful, and distorts the appearance of the nose.
