what is Sculptra?
The loss of volume occurs naturally throughout the aging process. This is especially noticeable in the mid-face as the cheeks tend to become hollow and flat. To address this commonplace issue faced by many, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino offers Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid dermal filler that creates longer-lasting and more dramatic volume in the apples of the cheeks. In addition to improving the contour of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the appearance of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, including the nasolabial folds (also known as laugh or smile lines) that run from the outside of the nose to the corners of the lips. With a unique gel formula approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Sculptra encourages the natural production of collagen. This means that even after you stop treatments, your skin will still be healthier compared to its condition before you began to receive Sculptra injections.

"After consultations with many plastic surgeons, Dr. Tamburino was by far the most knowledgeable and detailed. I’m so thankful I found him and I would recommend him over and over. Not to mention his staff is so welcoming and incredibly helpful. If you are thinking about a surgery/cosmetics this is the GUY to go to. Can’t say enough good things!"- M.M. / Google / Feb 05, 2021
"I was very reluctant to get a face/neck lift. I thought about it for a few years and it was seeing myself on video calls day after day that sealed the deal for me. I had heard from a friend that Dr. Tamburrino was an excellent plastic surgeon and decided that I would suck up the drive from South Jersey to Doylestown based on the recommendation. I am so glad I did! My neck and face have been restored to a much more youthful look and amazingly there are no tell tale signs of surgery. I feel a whole lot better about myself and my family and friends are very complimentary (and I think a few of them are now considering surgery for themselves). Dr. Tamburrino is a thorough , knowledgeable and accomplished surgeon who I put complete trust in and I'm forever glad I did!"- G.F. / Healthgrades / Jan 29, 2021
"The decision I made to put myself first and go see Dr. Tamburinno changed my life in the best way possible.

I have recommended him to many close friends and will continue to do so!! Lindsay Curtis"- L.C. / Google / Jan 29, 2021
"Dr. Tamburrino changed my life. After two failed breast implant surgeries after a double mastectomy, Dr. Tamburrino created beautiful breast and nipples that look amazing. He gave me back my life. I owe him everything and recommend him to anyone who needs reconstruction. And on top of that he has an amazing personality, I received amazing care. "- M.F. / Healthgrades / Jan 21, 2021
"Dr Tamburino is exactly who you hope for when faced with a difficult breast cancer surgery! He is a highly skilled surgeon, who is also caring and honest. He will tell you exactly what you need to know (though not always what you might want to hear) to get you through the long haul of surgery and reconstruction. I have had breast cancer with a bilateral mastectomy, chemo, radiation & expanders for reconstruction and have been going to Dr T for over a year. I feel now that he is the only plastic surgeon who was able to get me through my complicated journey. He always had my best interests at heart. I would recommend him to all my family and friends!"- M.D. / Google / Jan 08, 2021
who can get sculptra?
Sculptra is great for anyone who wants to add contour in their cheeks without the need for implants and invasive surgery. Some candidates for this treatment could have naturally flat cheeks while others have experienced facial deflation with age. Sculptra may also help to treat shallow to deep facial wrinkles and lines, like chin wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Since Sculptra works to increase the body's natural production of collagen, many women and men who receive these injections will see an improvement in not only their appearance but the overall health of their complexion as well.
how does sculptra work?
Following your one-on-one consultation to develop your personalized treatment plan, you may have your Sculptra injections performed in our private procedure room. The injector may use a local anesthetic or numbing cream before cleaning and marking the areas to be injected. As soon as you are prepared, the filler will be administered in the deeper layers of the skin at the selected sites. For longer-lasting results, Dr. Tamburrino performs a series of four injections with each session performed at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa about three weeks apart.
What to Expect
After your appointment, you may experience mild to moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the injection areas that should subside on its own in a few days. To encourage healing, you can apply a cold compress to the injection sites. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your appointment and always use sun protection. Many patients will see clear improvements right after their Sculptra treatment with final results developing after a few months. It will take several weeks for the increase of your natural collagen production to strengthen the skin. If Sculptra is performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, results may last for up to two years.
ACHIEVE A MORE Youthful Face
Utilizing advanced injectables, such as dermal fillers, patients are now able to improve the volume and smoothness of their complexion with minimally invasive Sculptra Aesthetic treatments at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa.
