The Story of Chase

Cleft Lip Patient — Plastic Surgery in Reno, NV
Dr. Murphy has been offering his talents to repair these tiny patients with cleft lips and cleft palates for 19 years. Most patients go through multiple surgeries, and have been patients of Dr. Murphy's since birth. Most cleft lip and palate babies undergo their first surgery at three months, so patient and family become very well-known and familiar to our practice. Chase is one such child.
Chase has been with us since birth. He has undergone multiple surgeries, this last one, just recently. Chase and his family are a part of the Murphy Plastic Surgery family.


SculpSure® is the world's first hyperthermic, non-invasive laser to melt fat. It requires only 25 minutes per treatment, with no downtime, and destroys up to 24 percent of the fat cells with only one treatment. We do suggest to "treat to complete" with two treatments to each area, when needed.

Why freeze it, when you can melt it? Receive a consultation and treatment the same day!

“Hi, ladies here is my 2 month update: My boobs are nice and soft but still getting softer. My Dr. said that by 3 months they should be where they are going to stay. But, obviously they will continue to change and soften as the years go by. I am so in love with them. It's so worth it. When people ask me about how painful it was, I can honestly say that I didn't have any pain...” – NewMeSince2014
