He received more than 100 5-star reviews for his work in breast augmentation and other surgeries.

Dr. James E. Murphy also specializes in facial reconstructive surgery. He volunteers his services for the Cleft Palate Clinic, where he repairs cleft palates and other congenital facial abnormalities so that these young patients can grow up to thrive.

Why Patients Choose Our Practice

Our Plastic Surgeon's FACS Status

In addition to being a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. James E. Murphy is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. This is an honor that very few plastic surgeons or general surgeons receive. It is awarded to professionals who demonstrate an outstanding level of skill, a commitment to continuing education, and a track record of exceptional patient results over many years of surgical practice.

Each one of our patients receives individual attention and a personalized treatment plan. Throughout your time with us, you'll be cared for by an elite team composed of certified medical assistants, registered nurses, and licensed estheticians and cosmetologists.

Our Featured Procedures

Breast Augmentation

Our plastic surgeon performs more breast augmentations than any other surgery. He has developed elite skill in this surgical specialty over more than 25 years of practice. James E. Murphy, MD can help you enhance the shape, size, and symmetry of your bust through this highly customizable procedure. You can also consider breast implants or a breast lift depending on your specific goals.

Explore Breast Augmentation


Our surgeon can eliminate stubborn fat from your arms, abdomen, thighs, and more with liposuction. This procedure helps you achieve a more contoured silhouette, expand your wardrobe options, and boost your confidence in your appearance. Liposuction is easily combined with other cosmetic surgeries for even more transformative results.

Explore Liposuction

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift can enhance your backside by redistributing fat collected during liposuction into the buttocks. Dr. James E. Murphy offers this procedure rather than buttock implants because it carries a much lower risk of side effects and offers far more natural-looking results. Brazilian butt lift surgery can give you a beautifully accentuated figure for years to come.

Tummy Tuck

Enjoy a slim, toned midsection with tummy tuck surgery–one of the most popular plastic surgeries available. Our surgeon can remove excess skin and fat and tighten abdominal muscles to help you achieve the figure you desire. Our Reno, NV, practice offers mini, traditional, and extended tummy tucks, all of which can be combined with liposuction to enhance your results.

We Make Cosmetic Enhancement Affordable With Our Flexible Financing Options

Reconstructive surgeries and other medically necessary procedures, like some breast reductions, are eligible for insurance coverage. In these cases, our team will gladly help you file a claim. While strictly cosmetic surgeries and other elective treatments are not eligible for coverage, that doesn't mean they have to break your budget. We're pleased to accept financing through CareCredit®, Sierra Pacific, PatientFi, and ALPHAEON® Credit so our patients can cover their costs in manageable monthly installments. 

We also offer in-house financing plans that let you contribute to a special account until your surgery is pre-paid. Have questions? Feel free to contact us at any time.
