About

Bio

As the Medical Director of BEAUTY by BUFORD, I am double board certified in Plastic Surgery as well as Anti-Aging/Restorative Medicine and am the author of "Beauty and the Business". My surgical practice focuses on Breast Enhancement (primary/secondary), Body Contouring, and Minimally Invasive Facial Rejuvenation. I am a graduate of the University of California, San Diego, Georgetown University School of Medicine, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, the Baker-Stuzin-Baker Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship, and the A4M Anti-Aging/Restorative Fellowship. I speak to a number of top medical conferences each year on several topics including secondary breast revision, facial injectables, laser resurfacing, medical skin care, social media, as well as methods for achieving top notch customer service.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
