WHAT IS Body Contouring?
The term "body contouring" is one that is regularly used in the plastic surgery industry to describe a series of surgeries that can be used to sculpt a more voluptuous silhouette. Women and men who have recently lost weight, or whose weight has fluctuated over time, may desire body contouring at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa to reduce fat, tighten the skin, and sculpt certain areas of their frame. Additionally, body contouring can be used for women and men who have found that their bodies are not as responsive to diet and exercise efforts. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino provides numerous body contouring choices, from liposuction, breast lift surgery, and abdominoplasty to fat grafting and laser skin tightening procedures. The options for redefining and rejuvenating your physique are endless. Contact our office in Doylestown, PA to schedule your consultation and learn more about your many options to enhance your figure and achieve the lean, sculpted body you want.
"Dr. Tamburrino is outstanding! He’s extremely talented in his field and I can’t praise a doctor more. I suffered a dog bite to the nose 3 years ago and he was called into the ER to repair it. His bedside manner was calming and kind as he worked on my nose. The results were great and I was left without permanent scarring. Unfortunately, I didn’t follow his advise and I kept the dog. Six months ago the same Beagle attacked me again and the injury was worse. My nose was hanging off and I had a bite above my nose between the eyes. There were three bites in Al. This time. I again requested Dr. Tamburrino at the ER--the best thing I ever did because I knew what a good job he did the first time. He took a lot of time to reconstruct my nose and stitch it back together. Both of my nostrils were torn. I was a mess! The results? I look great. I seriously l think my nose looks better than it did before any of the bites. Dr. Tamburrino somehow put the nose back together so that the stitches were on the lower side of the nostril and the scars are not visible at all. The nostrils even look equal in size. I’ve had a couple follow up appointments at his office and his staff are super friendly and accommodating as well!"- K.M. / Yelp / Oct 11, 2021
"My experience and follow-ups with Dr. Tamburrino and his staff were extraordinary. I had a negative experience with prior surgeons, but when I saw him for a facelift revision, he set clear and reasonable expectations for what we could achieve together and showed an impressive understanding and expertise in assessing my past surgery. I worked with him to develop a game plan of other procedures that would achieve the results that would make me happy. I am grateful and can genuinely say that Prestige Institute treated me with care and understanding, and that Dr. Tamburrino is one of the best!"- C.N. / Google / Oct 05, 2021

"I could not be happier with my experience with Dr. Tamburrino and his staff! They made the entire process of my procedure so smooth. Every question was answered and I was very comfortable with my decision to go with Prestige in comparison to my past experiences with multiple consultations at other practices. Dr. Tamburrino was very realistic and honest in addressing my concerns, and his extensive training, experience, certifications, and attention to detail proved that I was in the right place. The results of my procedure were absolutely amazing! Better than what I had imagined. I now look in the mirror every day and get so excited and proud of what I see! I can’t thank Dr. Tamburrino, Anna, Kristen, and all of the staff at Prestige enough for how kind and accommodating they were! I’ll never look anywhere else for any plastic surgery/med spa needs!"- M.W. / Google / May 25, 2021
"The doctor took a lot of time to clearly explain my options for major surgery following a cancer-related procedure. He is very thorough and very human. I felt extremely comfortable in his care. This is all in the past now, but looking back I know I chose the right physician."- H.G. / Google / Mar 22, 2021
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 CON 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.
