5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Finally Getting a Lift After Many Years of Waiting. - Reno, NV

I love my doctor tons! He specializes in breast surgeries, and it is evident by the work he does. He took the time to make me feel safe and comfortable, and made sure to answer any question I may have had. The day after surgery both he and the hospital called to check in with me and make sure I was feeling ok, and to see if there is anything they could do for me. I would highly recommend Dr. Murphy and his great team! I will be returning to him for all my future surgeries.

Dr James Murphy in Memphis Tn not Reno NV Nice doctor. Short to the point. Start truth about surgery. He has no website or books of before and after pics. He was highly recommended by word of mouth. Staff was nice and helpful. Quick surgery date once I got my approval from insurance company.

Crescent lift with silicone implants

Dr. Murphy did my augmentation in May 2014. I got a crescent lift with silicone implants and the healing took a little longer and at first the breast didn't look the prettiest so I was too embarrassed to go in for pictures but after the proper healing time I really enjoy the results. I have a very natural look without a bra and that's ok. The surgery went very well and I healed with hardly...
