Your Rhinoplasty Journey

Here’s what to expect from the initial consultation through to the completion of your procedure:

Consultation & Preparation

The process begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr. Murphy, where your goals, aesthetic preferences, and medical history are discussed. Preparing for surgery may include adjusting medications, adhering to a healthy lifestyle, and preparing for your recovery period.

VECTRA® 3D Imaging System

We offer VECTRA 3D imaging as an innovative tool for visualizing the potential of your plastic surgery transformation and empowering you to communicate your aesthetic goals more effectively. VECTRA’s advanced technology captures multiple high-resolution images of your appearance before surgery. Then, it creates detailed 3D simulations of how you might look after surgery. These images can showcase various surgical options and angles, allowing you to see highly accurate representations of your surgical results. The process takes only a few minutes, so you can review and discuss your results with Dr. Murphy during your consultation to make the most informed decisions about your treatment.  

The Procedure

Rhinoplasty can take 1 to 3 hours and is performed under general anesthesia or using a local anesthetic with sedation. Techniques are carefully selected to minimize scarring, with most incisions hidden inside the nose or along its natural contours.

Dr. Murphy’s Rhinoplasty Techniques

Murphy employs both open and closed rhinoplasty techniques to meet your specific needs:

  • Closed Rhinoplasty: This technique involves incisions hidden inside the nostrils. It’s particularly effective for less complex modifications, such as minor reshaping of the nasal bridge or tip.
  • Open Rhinoplasty: This procedure is often recommended for more extensive reshaping or complex adjustments to the nasal structure. It involves a small incision on the columella, the thin strip of skin separating the nostrils, allowing Dr. Murphy full access to the nasal framework. Despite the external incision, scarring is minimal and strategically placed to be less noticeable.

Regardless of the approach, patients achieve natural-looking, harmonious results that enhance their facial features.

Recovery & Healing

Dr. Murphy and his team are dedicated to making your recovery period as comfortable and effective as possible. They provide comprehensive follow-up and detailed instructions for aftercare.

Here are some tips for optimal recovery:

  • In the initial days following surgery, rest with your head elevated to reduce swelling and promote healing.
  • Apply cold compresses around the eyes and cheeks (not directly on the nose) to help minimize bruising and swelling.
  • Refrain from heavy lifting, vigorous exercise, or any activity that could increase blood pressure and lead to swelling or bleeding.
  • Follow Dr. Murphy’s aftercare instructions meticulously, which may include saline sprays and gentle cleaning around the incision sites.
  • Be mindful to protect your nose from any potential impact and avoid wearing glasses that rest on the bridge of the nose for the first few weeks.

The recovery timeline varies, with many patients resuming normal activities within 2 weeks. Initial swelling and bruising gradually diminish, with the final results becoming apparent in the months following surgery.
