This was sent to our office and touched each one of us. We wanted to share it with you.
Dear Dr. Buford,
You will never know how grateful I am to you. When I came in and thought I was doing this to add volume and proportion to my body that was certainly true. However, I knew that for me that there was so much more involved, physically, spiritually and emotionally.
For the longest time I never truly felt like I fit anywhere. Certainly I was female but I never felt at home with who I was. This surgery has been a rebirth for me. For the first time in my life, I truly feel beautiful. Just saying it and actually meaning it is monumental. In some strange way I feel like I’m in the form that was meant for me all along.
I believe that with all of my heart that there are no accidents. It all happens for very specific reasons. Had I done this any other time than right now or with any other surgeon than you, the resulting catharsis would not have been there for me
You will always hold a very special place in my heart. You’ve given me what I needed to complete one aspect of this journey I’ve been on for such a long time. I will always be so thankful for your skill and artistry and understanding.
I love myself, and I can give you no greater complement than to let you know that.
With heartfelt thanks and appreciation,
