“Dr. Buford is wonderful to work with and I highly recommend him to any of my friends seeking breast augmentation. His office is clean, inviting and comfortable and his staff are all delightful. “-Actual Patient of Dr. Buford, August, 2017. Read the full review here.
Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia administered by a board certified anesthesiologist. Dr. Buford will begin by making incisions per your discussion during the consultation, either in the natural fold under your breast (inframammary), around your areola (peri-areolar), or in the armpit (transaxillary). Through these incisions, Dr. Buford will precisely place your breast implants either over (subglanduar) or under the pectoral muscle (submuscular). If you’ve chosen saline implants, the implants will be filled to size once they have been inserted. Once your implants have been properly placed in the breast pocket, Dr. Buford will suture and dress the incisions.
You’ll be able to return home soon after surgery, though you will need a designated driver and someone to assist you for the rest of the day as you recover from anesthesia. Dr. Buford will prescribe pain medication to help manage your discomfort, but many patients are able to switch to an over-the-counter pain reliever within just a few days. If you have an office job, you will likely be able to return to work within three days or so, though it’s important to take it easy and avoid strenuous activity.

Dr. Buford was the easiest doctor to make an appointment with (and I called several), his staff is amazing and I find myself looking for reasons to go back…As for the procedure, it was easier than getting my teeth cleaned…I went shopping about 24 hours after the procedure. I’d recommend Dr. Buford and his team time and time again!”-Actual Patient of Dr. Buford, June 2017

A Personalized Approach for Your Best Results
Dr. Buford approaches each of his breast augmentation patients as the individuals they are. Each patient has different reasons for wanting breast augmentation and different ideas about how they want to look after surgery. Moreover, each patient has a unique body shape and proportion that must be taken into account.
“…I picked a range of implant sizes with Dr. Buford before the procedure (425 cc – 510 cc) knowing that he picks a size during the surgery that looks best with your body. He ended up going with 520 cc implants and I’m so happy he did. A month after the procedure and I get compliments from the girls at work all the time! The whole process has been great and I couldn’t be happier with the results.”-Actual Patient of Dr. Buford
To help ensure you get the results you want, Dr. Buford centers your treatment plan around three factors that are critical to your successful breast augmentation:
- The Right Surgeon for You
- The Right Procedure for You
- The Right Implant Choice for You
In addition, to help get you back on your feet as quickly as possible, Dr. Buford is the only Plastic Surgeon in Colorado to offer a unique approach to post-operative pain control. This revolutionary technique helps a majority of his breast augmentation patients get off of narcotic pain medications within 1-2 days following their surgery. As a surgical resident at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Dr. Buford was trained in the use of the Intercostal Nerve Block and has since performed this procedure on thousands of patients. While you are still asleep, a small amount of local anesthetic will be injected to the side of your chest to effectively block pain fibers from your breasts to your brain. This block usually lasts around 6-8 hours but can make a dramatic difference in your need for pain medication following surgery. Because of this block and Dr. Buford’s specific breast augmentation technique, a majority of his patients are back to work within 24-48 hours following their procedure. Make sure and ask him about this technique during your consultation.
