What to Expect During Your Rhinoplasty in West Palm Beach
Dr. Murphy is proud to offer two unique West Palm Beach rhinoplasty techniques to his patients in West Palm Beach: the open and closed approach. With the open approach, he will make an incision along the columella, which is the structure separates your nostrils. He will then lift the skin to reveal the cartilage and bone of the nose, so he can precisely shape and sculpt the area. This approach provides Dr. Murphy with the greatest access to the underlying structure. As such, it’s best for our clients who want to dramatically change the appearance of their nose or make very refined changes to the nasal tip.

With the closed approach, Dr. Murphy will create incisions inside the nose only, eliminating the potential for external scars. Although this approach still enables him to fix many cosmetic and structural problems, it does not allow for the unobstructed access the open approach provides. As such, it won’t be the ideal technique for every patient.
Regardless of the specific approach used, you can be assured that you are receiving one of the best rhinoplasty West Palm Beach has available. Dr. Murphy will operate using the conservative approach for which he is known. He won’t attempt to dramatically change your appearance, because he knows that’s not what will appear the most natural. Instead, he’ll make very subtle alterations with the goal of ensuring that you still look like yourself when you emerge from surgery, just with a more attractive nose that better fits your face.
After your Palm Beach Gardens rhinoplasty with Dr. Murphy, you should expect to stay home from work for at least one week as you recover. During that time, it’s important to keep your head elevated, avoid strenuous exercise and regularly apply cold compresses to your face. Throughout the initial recovery period, some puffiness, bruising and swelling is to be expected, though it will subside with time as you continue to heal.
A few days after surgery, Dr. Murphy will have you return to our Palm Beach Gardens office so that he can evaluate your nose and make sure your healing process is progressing as planned. At that point, he will provide you with personalized guidance regarding when you can return to work and more strenuous activities.
How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost?
This varies per person and what type of rhinoplasty is being performed. All of this is discussed during your personal procedure plan at your consultation.
Will Rhinoplasty Affect Nasal Allergies?
It won’t affect your body’s response to allergens but receiving rhinoplasty and being exposed to allergens directly after surgery may intensify the reaction or cause greater discomfort for a period.
How Long Does the Process Take?
Surgery can last from one hour to several hours depending on the extent of the work being done.
How Long is the Recovery from a Nose Job?
Full recovery is expected to take a few months, but the initial swelling and bruising should subside within the first week or two.
When Can I Go Back to Work Following the Procedure?
It is important to avoid potential bumps or harm to the nose, so restricting your activity is crucial in the first week at least. Depending on the type of work you do you could be back to work within the first week.
Will There Be Scarring?
The rhinoplasty can be done with minimal to no scarring depending on the type of procedure recommended for your specific case.
Where are the Incisions?
In a closed rhinoplasty (appropriate for minor corrections), the incisions are within the nose. In an open rhinoplasty, the incision is in the columella, the strip between your nostrils where it won’t be visible once healed.
Will I Need Someone to Drive Me Home?
After any surgical procedure involving anesthesia it is always recommended to have someone pick you up and drive you home – you cannot drive yourself after rhinoplasty.
What Type of Anesthesia Is used?
Rhinoplasty can be performed using various types of anesthesia such as IV sedation or general anesthesia. Some minor corrections may require only local anesthetic.
What Are the Alternatives to Rhinoplasty?
Yes, there is also non-invasive rhinoplasty which involves the use of fillers and injectables as opposed to surgery. These options can be discussed with us to determine whether non-surgical rhinoplasty will work for you.
Is Financing Available?
Financing is available, and depending on the cost of the procedure, different options that can suit your needs can be discussed with our friendly administrative staff – they are here to help.
