"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 RADIESSE?
Adults who are in good overall health and want to correct their mild to moderate lines and wrinkles are the best candidates for Radiesse treatments. It can address smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and lines that form in the edges of the lips. Radiesse is also designed to treat age-related volume loss in the hands to help them look fuller and more youthful. You shouldn't have this treatment if you are allergic to lidocaine or any other ingredients contained in Radiesse. Be sure to tell Dr. Tamburrino if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) and any medical disorders or conditions. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, might be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within several years, you should not use Radiesse treatments.
HOW DOES RADIESSE WORK?
Radiesse injections are performed in one of the treatment rooms at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in about 30 – 60 minutes after your one-on-one consultation. First, you will sit comfortably while the areas of injection will be cleaned and marked. Most patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout their procedure at the initial prick, but if requested, a numbing agent will be applied to the injection sites. The Radiesse dose, determined at your personalized treatment planning session, will be placed in a fine syringe. The pre-marked injection sites will help the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the needed areas. As soon as the procedure is complete, a compress can be applied to alleviate bruising and swelling.
What to Expect
After your Radiesse injection, you may have mild swelling, bruising, and redness. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects may typically be covered with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer or seems excessive, please contact Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa. Most patients have some results minutes after the treatment with better results developing in a month or so. Your face will appear younger, softer, and have a natural glow. Radiesse typically lasts longer than some of the other fillers — up to 1 – 2 years. You can ask Dr. Tamburrino during your appointment about the best time to attend a follow-up session to touch up your results.
How much does Radiesse cost?
Your cost for a Radiesse treatment is based how much is needed to match your goals. During your consult at our practice, your injector will discuss your needs and wants so they can develop your treatment plan. Then, they will discuss your potential costs.
How does Radiesse compare to other fillers?
Fillers all have unique formulas and properties to help with a wide range of issues. Common ingredients in fillers include HA (hyaluronic acid), calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa), poly-L-lactic acid, and PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate). Radiesse is composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to hyaluronic acid dermal fillers the way it helps to stimulate collagen production in your body. During your consultation, we will discuss the various brands and evaluate your facial laxity, tone, and volume to determine which filler will address your concerns.
Are Radiesse injections painful?
Generally, patients don't need any form of numbing prior to their treatments. However, a local anesthetic is available to make you feel more comfortable. Many patients experience minor and short-lived discomfort when the needle pierces the skin.
