Even with a dedicated diet and exercise regimen, you might find yourself battling persistent fat pockets that refuse to budge. This stubborn fat remains because fat cells, once formed, can only increase or decrease in size but don't disappear with weight loss.

Many of us struggle with specific problem areas—be it muffin tops, love handles, belly pooches, or double chins. However, you don't have to accept them as permanent.

Liposuction continues to be a highly effective solution for our patients in Lone Tree, offering a way to eliminate these unwelcome fat deposits and carve out a trimmer figure that radiates confidence in any outfit.

Revitalize Your Self-Esteem

Liposuction targets and removes fat cells from your most troublesome body parts. It's commonly applied to the hips, thighs, back, chest, abdomen, arms, chin, and neck, helping to dislodge those stubborn fat cells and refine your overall shape.

Consistently ranking as one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures for both men and women, liposuction is one of the most effective options for fat reduction. Once the fat cells are gone, they won't come back, meaning you can have a more proportional and slimmer body contour for years to come.

VASER Liposuction: Enhanced Precision, Swift Healing

Denver's own Dr. Gregory A. Buford, MD, FACS, PCEO, opts for the VASER Lipo technique for liposuction. This cutting-edge, safe technology enables him to accurately shape the target area while preserving the surrounding tissues. VASER stands out for its ability to break down and remove fat cells efficiently with ultrasonic waves, even in substantial amounts.

Leveraging Dr. Buford's vast surgical experience, industry knowledge, and creative flair, VASER liposuction offers numerous advantages:

Superior Outcomes

Board-certified and a key figure on the National VASER Physician Training Panel, Dr. Buford excels in liposuction technology. His surgical prowess and aesthetic insight play a crucial role in achieving a naturally contoured, well-defined physique that aligns with your vision.

Accelerated Healing

The precision of VASER technology means you can expect a quicker recuperation compared to traditional liposuction methods. Many of Dr. Buford's patients are back to their regular routines within weeks, with results that continue to improve over several months.

Flexible Approach

Dr. Buford frequently integrates liposuction with other cosmetic procedures, like tummy tucks or mommy makeovers, for enhanced body shape and symmetry. His Responsible Contouring Program also considers dietary influences on recovery, ensuring a holistic approach to body sculpting.

Tailored, Holistic Care

Prior to surgery, a series of lab tests will evaluate your nutritional health and healing capabilities. Any nutritional gaps will be addressed through diet adjustments or supplements, with guidance from a seasoned nutritionist to support your recovery journey.

Post-surgery, follow-up tests ensure your body is in prime condition for the best possible outcomes. Dr. Buford uniquely emphasizes the role of diet and lifestyle in achieving peak results, drawing from his personal commitment to health and insights gained from his experience in Men's Physique Competitions.

"I’ve seen Dr. Buford for two procedures now. The most recent being liposuction. I am beyond happy with the results. I’m 3 months post surgery and my clothes are loose, my stomach is flat, my love handles are non-existent and most importantly I feel the best I’ve ever felt!

If you’re contemplating liposuction, I would personally recommend Buford and his team. Not only is he able to do the procedure in his own facility, they offer pronox which was a life changer in helping me relax. You’re in the best hands with Buford and his team."

Is Liposuction the Right Choice for Me?

Choosing liposuction for your body shaping needs is a significant decision. At BEAUTY by BUFORD, we emphasize the importance of an informed choice that reflects your personal desires and circumstances. Consider these important aspects to see if liposuction suits you:

Targeting Persistent Fat

Liposuction excels in eliminating stubborn fat deposits that don't respond to diet and exercise. If you're struggling with persistent fat in areas like your abdomen, hips, thighs, or arms, liposuction could offer a focused solution for fat reduction.

Enhancing Body Shape and Proportions

For those looking to refine their body shape and achieve better proportions, liposuction can be a powerful tool. Our experienced surgeons can skillfully remove unwanted fat, sculpting your figure into a more aesthetically pleasing form.

Understanding the Results

Having realistic expectations is crucial for liposuction candidates. The procedure can greatly enhance your silhouette but isn't a weight loss method or a cure for cellulite. Ideal candidates are those near their target weight with elastic skin.

Recovery After Liposuction

Recovering from liposuction is a critical aspect of your journey towards achieving a more contoured and refined silhouette. While liposuction can remove unwanted fat from specific areas of the body, the success of the procedure also heavily depends on the recovery process. Here's an in-depth look at what you can expect during your recovery period and how to ensure the best possible results.

Immediate Post-Procedure

  • First 24 Hours: It's common to experience grogginess from the anesthesia. Depending on the extent of your liposuction, you may be released the same day or require a short hospital stay. Pain, swelling, and bruising are typical, and your surgeon will prescribe medication to manage discomfort.
  • Compression Garments: You will be required to wear compression garments over the treated areas. These garments help reduce swelling, support the healing tissues, and assist in contouring your body. Typically, you'll need to wear these continuously for several weeks.

The First Few Weeks

  • Managing Symptoms: Swelling and bruising will peak within the first few days and then gradually subside. Pain should decrease over the first week, and any prescribed pain medication should help manage it.
  • Activity Restrictions: While light walking is encouraged soon after surgery to prevent blood clots, strenuous activities and exercise should be avoided for 2 to 4 weeks or as advised by your surgeon.
  • Follow-up Visits: You'll have appointments to monitor your healing and remove any stitches. These visits are crucial for addressing any concerns and ensuring a smooth recovery.

Weeks to Months

  • Seeing Results: As swelling continues to decrease, you'll start to notice the results of your liposuction. It can take several months for the final outcomes to be fully visible, as your body needs time to adjust to its new contours.
  • Long-term Care: Continue to wear your compression garments as directed. Attend all follow-up appointments and adhere to your surgeon's guidelines regarding diet, exercise, and care of the treated areas to maintain your results.

Tips for a Successful Recovery

  • Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water is essential for healing and helps reduce swelling.
  • Healthy Diet: Eating a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals supports your body's healing process and can help maintain your liposuction results.
  • Avoid Smoking and Alcohol: Smoking can hinder your recovery and increase the risk of complications, while alcohol can interact with your medications and affect your body's ability to heal.
  • Patience is Key: Remember, recovery is a gradual process. It's important to have realistic expectations and give your body the time it needs to heal properly.
