Out of Town Patients
Dr. Sam Rizk is a double board certified New York facial plastic surgeon that specializes in face and neck surgeries. He has been included in Castle Connolly’s America’s Best Doctors and is renowned for his advanced techniques and for delivering the best surgical outcomes to his patients. As such, Dr. Rizk is in high demand, not only by patients in the New York area, but from all over the world. He has successfully treated patients from across the US, England, Egypt, South Africa, and many countries throughout Asia and South America. Dr. Rizk is fluent in English and Arabic, making him highly sought after by Middle Eastern patients, as well. Because Dr. Rizk sees many patients who fly into New York for treatment, he has developed a system that provides the best results for his out of town patients.
The first step in the process is to contact our office manager, Dila, to inform us of your interest in undergoing a neck lift with Dr. Rizk. You will then submit your front and profile pictures to Dr. Rizk via email. Dr. Rizk will review the photos to determine the best course of treatment and arrange a Skype phone consultation with you to discuss the neck lift. If you would like to move forward, you can then contact the office manager to receive a quote for the surgery. A surgery date can only be booked once a non-refundable 20% deposit is paid. Dr. Rizk allots extra time for each surgery so that each patient gets his full attention and focus. He does not squeeze patients in, so please be patient if there is a wait to schedule the surgery.
Once the surgery date is scheduled, medical clearance from your country will be required. This typically involves blood work and an electrocardiogram. You may fax or email the medical clearance to our office once you have received it. You will need to arrive in New York a few days before your surgery date to attend an in-depth consultation with Dr. Rizk. Neck lift surgery is an outpatient procedure that is performed at our JCAHO certified surgical facility in Manhattan. Post-surgery, after a sufficient observation period at our surgical center, you will return to your hotel after you have been completely stabilized and meet US standards for discharge. You may choose to have a private duty nurse stay with you or, for a lower fee, a personal aid to escort you. Typically, Dr. Rizk will require that you to stay in New York for about a week after surgery so that he can monitor your healing progress before you return to your home.
Throughout this entire process, Dr. Rizk and his staff are ready to assist you with any questions or concerns about the surgery that you may have. We also offer VIP concierge services to help you book hotels and other services to make your stay in New York as pleasant as possible. If are considering neck lift surgery, please contact our office manager, Dila, to start the process today. We look forward to hearing from you.
