This review is written 5 years after I had a laser resurfacing procedure at Dr. Buford's clinic. I am writing now because 5 years later, I am still trying to correct the scarring I received from the laser procedure. I have seen two more plastic surgeons who confirmed that the scarring was from the laser and that the procedure was performed too aggressively for my skin type. Dr. Buford did not perform the procedure himself, but a laser technician/aesthetician under his supervision did. She left Dr. Buford's practice to work for another plastic surgeon, but she acknowledged the scarring and agreed to perform microdermabrasion and another laser procedure using a less aggressive setting to try to correct it. Unfortunately, those procedures did not help. I then scheduled an appointment to see Dr. Buford to get a second opinion, since the original procedure was performed at his clinic and he had access to the laser settings in my chart. I pointed out the laser scarring to him, and he said that he couldn't see anything. I was dumbfounded by his response. The scar lines were clearly visible, and I was pointing directly at them in the mirror. He still insisted that he couldn't see anything. I requested my chart, so that I could bring it to another plastic surgeon for another opinion. When I receive the chart, several of the postprocedure pictures (showing the unusually prolonged healing process) were missing. I'm not sure what happened, but it certainly appears that the technician may have been trying to cover up a mistake by removing information from my chart. For anyone considering laser resurfacing, I would not recommend this clinic. I understand that the technician holds responsibility as well, but as the surgeons are supposed to be supervising their staff and ensuring that patients receive the safest care, the greatest responsibility is with the surgeon. For that reason and for Dr. Buford's inability to recognize a complication (or at least admit to recognizing it), I would not recommend this clinic.
Regardless of your age, I believe everyone "deserves" to be the best "you" can be! As most women/mothers know, we are usually last on the list of pampering and addressing our own personal needs. In my opinion; it's time to take a break, and put yourself at the top-of-the-list; don't you agree!?! When one feels recharged and more confidant; I believe you not only live a more fulfilling life, but you also project a more positive-attitude; which, of course, enriches those around you as well. I have 21-year-old twin boys that have enriched my life in ways I could have never imagined! They are truly my greatest blessings! I'm now at a point in my life where I can pamper myself a little more. Therefore, I decided to research breast augmentation; and the advancements made with silicone implants. The type-A person that I am, I spent hours reading physician (plastic surgeons) and patient blogs, YouTube videos of actual breast augmentation procedures and, of course, reviewing local plastic surgeon profiles/bios. It quickly became apparent to me that Dr. Buford not only possessed "specialized" skills; board certified and extenstive years of experience as a plastic surgeon, but was committed to an individualized approach. My entire experience has been nothing short of phenomenal!Much thanks to Dr. Buford's compassionate staff!
I waited 20 years to get breast augmentation to make sure it was what i wanted to do. I met with several other doctors and got several different estimates. Loved Dr. Bufford's office, staff and the doctor himself. Answered all my questions. The only thing I was worried about was the size chosen. I wanted to go to a large C cup and since they do all the measurements in CC's i was nervous about what i would get withe the several sizes I chose. No Worry! Dr. Buford chose the right size in surgery to fit my body and how I wanted to look! I absolutely love them and recovery was only bad for a day or two. Would highly recommend the new silicone that is out there. Feel so REAL! So happy with the whole process!
My experience with Dr Buford and his entire staff was amazing. Getting breast augmentation was a big decision for me, his staff made me feel comfortable and at ease at all times. From the first visit to the day of surgery I was always treated with respect. I couldn't be happier with the results and highly recommend Dr Buford.
After having 2 kids and losing 70 pounds, I had sagging skin and stretched muscles. Dr. Buford did a tummy tuck and the results were better than I could of imagined!! I now have a flat stomach and an actual shape!! I found Dr. Buford and his staff very professional while at the same time making you feel at ease with what you are going through. Dr. Buford has an eye for detail and doesn't try to "sell" you something you don't need. I am very happy with him and his great staff!!
