At his Denver plastic surgery practice, Beauty by Buford, Dr. Buford has noticed his patients’ plastic surgery choices have been affected by the current economic environment. However, he is quick to note that while the recession may have affected his patients’ financial situation, their aesthetic enhancement needs remain the same, which lead them to turn to him to help develop a plan to achieve their plastic surgery goals.

What we say we want is not always what we want and so proper questions must be asked to elucidate what endpoint we are striving to achieve.

Dr. Gregory Buford, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Denver, Colorado, has seen a developing trend in the choices his patients have been making since the first signs of the recession in 2008. In light of the current economic environment, Dr. Buford says that while his patients’ financial situations may have changed, their desire for aesthetic enhancement remains the same. He says working with his patients to develop the appropriate path to their plastic surgery expectations has always been a priority, and the recession is simply another variable to consider.

As Dr. Buford helps his patients develop a plan for their plastic surgery needs, he says making the right choice for breast enhancement in Denver is a popular topic in his Beauty by Buford office. With increased concerns over the economic situation, Dr. Buford says his patients want to be more involved in the decision process, but still require his opinion when it comes to making the right choice for the appropriate procedure for their body type.

Whether considering a breast lift or breast augmentation in Denver, Dr. Buford says merging a patient’s imagined goals and their actual expectations can prove difficult at times. “What we say we want is not always what we want and so proper questions must be asked to elucidate what endpoint we are striving to achieve.” With the current recession on everyone’s mind, Dr. Buford says knowing how to ask the right questions will help uncover the correct choice and develop appropriate goals for aesthetic enhancement.

Throughout the consultation process, Dr. Buford often finds that patients will come in with one procedure in mind, such as a breast lift in Denver. However, after discussing the patient’s goals, Dr. Buford says he is able to shed light on the process by exploring all options and procedures, which can often lead to his patients choosing another procedure because it will ultimately produce the desired results. Never has this been truer, says Dr. Buford, now that his patients are being forced to pay closer attention to their financial situation.

At his Beauty by Buford plastic surgery practice, Dr. Buford remarks that whether his patients are considering a face lift or breast implants in Denver, it is his job to discern initial ideas from actual expectations by asking the appropriate questions with consideration for all variables affecting the situation, which includes a shaky economic climate.
