Watch Dr. Buford perform abdominoplasty
Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, can make dramatic improvements to the shape and appearance of the midsection. Board certified plastic surgeon Gregory A. Buford, MD, FACS, PCEO is one of Denver’s most sought after plastic surgeons for abdominoplasty. He specializes in recovery-enhancing “drainless” techniques that allow patients to enjoy their improved abdominal contours sooner after surgery, and is one of few surgeons in the area performing VASER-assisted tummy tucks, combining highly-detailed liposuction with skin removal and muscle repair for an enhanced overall result.
Below are videos highlighting different aspects of Dr. Buford’s detailed approach to abdominoplasty. These are clips from an actual surgery on a female patient bothered by excess skin and stretched, protruding muscles post-pregnancy. WARNING: these videos contain graphic details of actual surgery. Viewer discretion is advised.
Overview of Abdominoplasty with Dr. Buford
In addition to carefully sculpting an improved abdominal shape, Dr. Buford incorporates BOTOX injections in the abdominal muscles to prevent muscle spasms during recovery, significantly enhancing patient comfort after surgery.
Improving Tummy Tuck Recovery with BOTOX Injections
Dr. Buford has developed an innovative approach to enhancing recovery after tummy tuck surgery: BOTOX! Injecting BOTOX directly into the newly repaired abdominal muscles helps to prevent muscle spasms during recovery, significantly enhancing patient comfort following surgery.
Correcting Diastasis Recti During a Tummy Tuck
Diastasis Recti is a common condition associated with pregnancy and rapid weight gain in which the abdominal muscles stretch and separate along the vertical midline. Surgery is currently the only effective solution to correct more serious cases of diastasis recti. Dr. Buford uses a special “internal corseting” technique, involving permanent sutures in the fascia surrounding the muscles, to close this separation. Doing so not only achieves a more aesthetically pleasing torso shape, but can help resolve pain and weakness associated with diastasis recti.
