"I’ve been getting Dysport on and off for over 10 years. Dr. Tamburrino had been doing my injectables consistently for 5 years. He treats my wrinkles and neckbands with Dysport. He has kept me youthful and very natural looking by replacing lost volume (fat loss from aging) with filler in my face. It took a lot of trust in my doctor for me to get filler in my face. I am so thankful for his knowledge and skills. I would only go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon like him for my filler and Dysport! He takes his time to explain everything in detail which makes you feel comfortable and ready for treatment. I recommend JoeTMD to all my family and friends. Everyone is extremely happy with their results! I also see Susan for my skin care. Susan is the best Medical Aesthetician! I’ve been seeing her for almost 2 years. She has changed my skin for the best! With her advanced treatments like Dermaplanes, laser hair removal, Hydrafacial, Vi-Peels, and great medical grade skin care products that work, my skin feels 10 years younger. Overall with injectables and skincare Tamburrino Plastic Surgery and Med Spa can be your one stop shop for youthful skin!"- A.M. / Google / Nov 30, 2022

"The staff could not have been more kind and helpful. My teenage daughter had a medical issue that needed immediate attention.

WHO CAN GET BODY CONTOURING?
Body contouring could be ideal for you if you have sagging skin, droopy areas of the body where you would like increased volume (such as the buttocks or breasts), or fat in areas that are hard to lose. The hips, flanks, neck, abdomen, and lower back, for example, can collect fat, which creates unwanted bulges and an undesired look. Good candidates for body contouring are Doylestown, PA individuals who are able to maintain a healthy weight and desire a firmer, more sculpted shape.
What are some benefits of body contouring?
It's normal for men and women to notice sagging or hanging skin after life events like weight loss and pregnancy. Sometimes loose folds of skin can lead to other problems like skin irritation or rashes, which can be painful and uncomfortable. Body contouring is designed to remove the excess skin from different areas of the body and help you feel more confident in your silhouette. Wear a bathing suit on a beach, feel more attractive in shorts and a T-shirt, or simply have the freedom to remove your shirt without feeling self-conscious. These are all powerful motivations for having body contouring surgery!
HOW IS BODY CONTOURING DONE?
After your initial visit, Dr. Tamburrino will craft a body contouring treatment plan for you, which might include both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Surgeries, such as a breast lift or augmentation, liposuction, and abdominoplasty typically require general anesthesia to maintain your comfort. The goal during surgery is to create small incisions that can be concealed underneath clothing and to reduce unsightly fat and excess tissue, leaving a slimmer, tighter contour, as well as firmer skin. Nonsurgical services are typically performed at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa without sedation. These commonly include injectable fillers, CoolSculpting, and laser skin tightening.
What to Expect
If your body contouring treatment plan includes a surgical procedure, you can expect to be sent home to heal and recover afterward. However, nonsurgical treatments typically do not require a rest and recovery period since they are minimally invasive and do not use incisions. It's common for our patients to combine several surgical procedures on multiple areas, which could require you to stay overnight. Body contouring is meant to enhance your frame so whether you choose surgical procedures, nonsurgical treatments, or a combination of both, you can expect to achieve a thinner, trimmer silhouette, as well as a sexier profile.
BODY CONtouring FAQs
What will be part of my body contouring surgery?
The combination of procedures will be decided during your consultation with Dr. Tamburrino. Your body contouring appointment might be scheduled in two or more stages, depending on your overall health and how many areas are being addressed. Typically, the stages will be grouped by combining either the upper body parts (arms, breasts, stomach, face, neck) or lower body parts (buttocks, thighs, flanks, knees). This staging helps minimize the possibility of complications, such as infection and blood loss. This also makes your recovery easier and faster.
Will I have scarring after my surgery?
Since incisions are required, body contouring surgery will create scars. Many patients discover that when the incisions have fully healed, the scarring is a small price to pay for the stunning outcomes they receive. Dr. Tamburrino is a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon who will make every effort to minimize the appearance of scars by creating incisions in less visible areas, like the natural skin folds. Scar care management after surgery is crucial for your recovery and results. Skin creams may be prescribed to speed the healing process. In time, the scars will fade and blend in with your normal skin tone.
How long will my body contouring results last?
With proper care, your body contouring results will last for a long time. The best way to maintain your results is to stay at a healthy, stable weight. Dramatic changes in your weight or childbirth after your body contouring surgery may impact your results. Natural aging will continue so you will eventually see loose skin develop as you get older. Ask Dr. Tamburrino about recommendations that can help your results last longer.
