As one of your most prominent features, the nose can have an extraordinary impact on your looks. As such, subtle, artistic alterations by a seasoned facial plastic surgeon, like Dr. Murphy, can transform your appearance – bringing balance, harmony and beauty to your features.
When to consider a rhinoplasty
If you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your nose and believe you’d be more attractive with a new one, it may be time to consider one of the best rhinoplasty West Palm Beach has to offer. In general, Dr. Murphy will recommend this procedure if you want to:
- Smooth a nasal hump
- Correct a nose that’s too small or too large
- Restore balance to an asymmetrical or crooked nose
- Improve the shape, size, projection or angle of your nose
- Address a drooping, protruding, bulbous or large nasal tip
- Fix breathing problems due to structural abnormalities within the nasal structure
What to expect during your rhinoplasty
Dr. Murphy is proud to offer two unique rhinoplasty techniques to his patients in 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 Jupiter nose job 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.
We invite you to schedule a consultation at our Palm Beach Gardens office today, and let esteemed facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark R. Murphy, help you create the enhanced appearance you deserve.
