Out of Town
We are always happy to accommodate out of town patients who are interested in rhinoplasty with Dr. Murray. In fact, our structure works very similarly for both local and out of town patients.
There are 5 main steps to the process:
Consults are all virtual for both local as well as out of town patients. No difference there.
Final quotes will be provided following the consultation. My team will assist you in planning payment, your pre-operative work-up, and all scheduling details. We do accept Care Credit as well as all major credit cards. You can plan to stay at a hotel or an AirBnB, wherever you feel most comfortable.
3. PRE-OP VISIT
You will need to plan to be in Miami a minimum of 2 days before your surgery. Now with COVID-19 more than ever, there is a great deal of preparation that needs to happen in this pre-op time period, so you must be here early to make sure you are ready. We will be seeing you in the office the morning of the day before your surgery.
This is same-day surgery done at a high end outpatient surgery center. You will go home after your surgery. You need to have someone stay with you the first night after surgery, so if you come alone you will need to hire a private nurse at least for the one night. We can help you arrange this if needed.
5. POST-OPERATIVE COURSE
Generally, I will see you in the office on post operative day 6-7 (for primaries) or 8-10 (for revisions) to remove the cast and splints. The exact dates will depend what day your surgery is scheduled. You can then fly home after the cast is removed. In rare circumstances, patients have flown home the day after their surgery and then flew back for their post op visit. I am ok with this if specific criteria are met. Most of the time, it is safe to be on an airplane after rhinoplasty, but it depends on the complexity of your case.
Remember, there will be a need to come back physically into the office periodically (perhaps every 3-6 months) for examination and possible injections (special cocktail of anti-inflammatories) or small touch-ups. For some, this may be unnecessary as rhinoplasty is kind of a “set it and forget it” healing process, where you just have to be patient for the 12-24 months post surgery. Again though, the healing isn’t finished after the first week, so there is always the need potentially to intervene along the way depending how it looks.
Keep this in mind when budgeting for the surgery and travel post op. We ultimately want you have the best nose possible!
