"Dr. Tamburrino is a master at his craft. He is a doctor that knows his branch of medicine very well. After doing a google search I called the office and spoke with Andrea, she was so understanding and comforting to me that it just made me want to spend the 100 dollars for a consultation. That was the best 100 dollars I have ever spent. From that point Dr. Tamburrino took time not only understanding my issue but understanding how I felt about it. He answered ever question I had and provide the reassurance I needed. What made me make a decision to have the surgery was what he said it is "life changing". I thought how many things in life can you do that actually well change it. He did a excellent job and his staff was very support as well as his wife Anna. Definitely without a doubt use him again getting any procedure that I might need. Thank you Andrea and all the staff and you Dr. Tamburrino."- T.N. / Google / Mar 08, 2023
"Words cannot express how highly my family and I recommend Dr. Tamburrino from Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa! For us, it’s all about the experience, from booking the consultation to post-surgery care. My experience at Dr. Tamburrino’s office has been nothing less than stellar. Honestly speaking, I don’t think the staff would have it any other way. This team operates from a foundation of being a family-oriented office first. The team treats you like a human vs. a client. They get to know you and your family and wow you at every touch point you encounter on this journey. If you are searching for an experienced and brilliant plastic surgeon, look no further, you must have a conversation with Dr. Joe! I went in for a brachioplasty consultation and ended up getting lipo. The results (only two months later) are phenomenal and life-changing. It was the trust that was built during a transparent consultative conversation that gave me the confidence to choose Dr. Tamburrino. He has talked me through the expectations of every step leading into surgery and post-surgery, maintaining my confidence in the process. The after-care has been nothing less than exceptional. The reviews say it all. What else can I say? I am a customer for life! I will, without a doubt, consult with him anytime for any future services. Thank you - Dr. Joe, Andrea, Anna, Alexis, & Susan!"- J.C. / Google / Mar 02, 2023
"I went to see Dr. Tamburrino for my gynecomastia and can't say enough good things about my experience. The staff was incredibly pleasant and made me feel comfortable even though I was very self conscious about my condition. I was awake during my surgery and although I was nervous at first, my nerves quickly went away and had a great time listening to music and conversing with everyone. My recovery was pretty quick and painless and everything healed really well to the point that you wouldn't be able to tell that I had surgery. Dr. Tamburrino made me feel confident in my skin again and can't thank him enough for it. I wish I had done it sooner and would go through the entire experience 100x over again."- T.R. / Google / Apr 26, 2023
"Dr. Tamburrino and his staff immediately make you feel like family. The office is beautiful but you never feel like the pristine surroundings are anything but warm and inviting. I was lucky enough to have met Dr. Tamburrino 10 years ago when I was unlucky enough to need his expertise in breast reconstruction as part of my cancer plan. He always made me feel completely at ease and gave me confidence that I was in good hands. When my daughter decided she wanted to pursue breast reduction surgery, I tracked Dr.Tamburrino down and we made the hour 1/2 drive to his new office in Doylestown. (Yes , he’s that good!) My daughter, who has severe social anxiety, was made to feel so welcome by the office staff and even more so by Dr. Tamburrino himself. We had seen another surgeon prior to this who was on our insurance plan, but neither one of us felt comfortable with the surgeon or the fact that she would not give us any degree of certainty as to what size my daughter could expect to be following the reduction. Dr. Tamburrino (who works without the constraints of insurance rules) made it clear that my daughter was going to be the size SHE wanted to be. He did an amazing job and was so supportive throughout the process . He was available any time of day for questions following the surgery and his lovely wife (who is a nurse in his practice) would call me with support that was more like a dear friend on the other end of the phone reassuring me and guiding me through post operative care. My daughter couldn’t be happier with the results. We are forever grateful for the entire experience provided by Dr. Tamburrino and everyone in the office."- C.A. / Google / Apr 11, 2023
"I am a breast cancer survivor and underwent bilateral mastectomies. Dr. Tamburrino performed my bilateral DIEP Flap reconstructions along with several revisions/follow-up procedures in part related to my deliberate weight loss. He is extremely well-educated and well-trained, with a depth and breadth of surgical experience and expertise and a more comprehensive foundation in general medical knowledge, pharmacology and biochemistry than most surgical specialists. He is, by temperament, thoughtful and cautious and always takes a "patient safety first" approach. He has a genuine respect and warmth for women (traits I relate to the positive influences in his life by his mother and his wife). His surgical skills are superb. He prepares patients for procedures with a thorough, yet plain-spoken, explanation of the details of the operation and recovery along with all potential benefits and risks and takes time for any and all questions. He remains as available to patients through the last office visit of their post-op recovery as he was for the initial consultation. His staff is as dedicated to patient safety and comfort as he is. I always knew that I was in the hands of a good man who is a superb surgeon who has my best interests at heart. I am thrilled with my results. Several medical professionals helped me survive breast cancer. Dr. Tamburrino is the member of my team that made me feel whole again. I am a very grateful to him and his staff."- M.H. / Google / Apr 03, 2023
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.
