"My experience at the Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery was stellar from start to finish. I went to Dr. Tamburrino because he is double-board certified – a HIGHLY trained and experienced plastic surgeon. A very cheerful and informative staff greeted me upon entering. Dr. Tamburrino answered all of my questions and he alleviated my concerns. I really appreciated his honesty. He does not try to oversell on procedures but provides his expert opinion on what he thinks will look amazing and NATURAL! I’ve gone to other plastic surgeons before (because I had breast cancer) however Dr. Tamburrino is truly the best! He is an artist and perfectionist. I am so happy with my results! I cannot recommend anyone higher than Dr. T!"- M.D. / Google / Sep 29, 2019

"I can not say enough about the wonderful care I have received from Dr. Tamburrino. I have a very complicated medical history and was on steroids for 2 years. I developed Breast Cancer and had Bilateral Mastectomies. Dr. Tamburrino expertise cautioned me against Reconstruction until I tapered and was off the steroids. I was extremely disappointed however his opinion to wait was the proper thing to do. It was worth the wait as I go through weekly visits since January to have my expanders develop. His kind, caring, professional manner down right enjoyable. I had not been having trouble with pain until as I draw nearer to the end. I had one week where I was experiencing more pain than usual. As it progressed I called Dr. Tamburrino who saw me in minutes at his office. I fortunately was visiting family in Doylestown because I live two hours away. It was Easter Eve at 10 pm he saw me and relieved my terrible pain. So willing, helpful and kind! He has been the most amazing physician, when dealing with a Cancer diagnosis having him help me through this Reconstruction has been an uplifting experience. Anna his nurse makes you feel like family. She’s been supportive and caring. Kristen his Administrative Assistant is always upbeat and helpful! At the time waiting a year seemed so awful, but Dr.Tamburrino’ s professional opinion was totally in my best interest and I know now that giving me the best care was his goal. Thanks Dr. T, you are the BEST!! Lyn McNair"- L.M. / Google / Aug 29, 2019
WHO CAN GET RESTYLANE?
Restylane injectable treatments are great for any woman or man over the age of 21 who desires to rejuvenate their overall appearance.

Restylane can address the initial signs of aging, including fine facial lines, or increase the fullness in your cheeks and lips.

Certain formulas contain lidocaine so you will need to disclose any allergies during your pre-treatment consultation with Dr. Tamburrino to avoid an adverse reaction.
HOW DOES RESTYLANE WORK?
Restylane treatments take place in the treatment room at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery. A numbing cream can be applied for greater comfort if desired. The filler is injected into the skin through a fine needle and massaged so that it properly fills the selected areas. Multiple injections may be administered, followed by a cold compress to decrease inflammation. Each Restylane formulation is distributed into the skin utilizing the same method. The only difference is the injection sites, which will be based on your unique concerns and aesthetic aims.
What to Expect
Once your Restylane procedure is complete, you can return to work. Your recovery timeframe will depend on what is being treated so talk to your injector about what to expect. The injection areas may be slightly swollen and red, but this often fades away within a day. Bruising may be a factor, but this can usually be camouflaged with makeup. It is suggested that you avoid strenuous activities, like exercise, for 24 hours and you should sleep upright for the first night. Many patients will experience some improvements right after their procedure, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane treatments typically last up to one year, depending on the formula used.
