DENVER, April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Bodybuilding is a highly competitive sport that has become increasingly popular among female athletes in recent decades. Being a bodybuilder himself, Dr. Buford is especially attuned to the needs of female competitors.
Why do women bodybuilders want plastic surgery? Female bodybuilders often seek breast augmentation to enhance their appearance, particularly during competition. As women build muscle and reduce body fat, their breasts often reduce in size as well. Judges currently favor a more feminine physique, prompting women in the bodybuilding community to seek out breast augmentation.
"Female competitors constantly challenge themselves to push their bodies to the limits," explains Dr. Buford. "By helping them increase breast size, I can give them a competitive advantage that weight lifting alone cannot provide."
Because female weight lifters have larger pectoral muscles and less body fat than most women, their breast augmentations require advanced knowledge of muscular tissue. It takes special skill and additional experience to perform breast augmentations for female bodybuilders.
Dr. Buford has performed more than 4,000 breast-related procedures to date, including many augmentations for female body builders. Breast augmentation for female bodybuilders is very common; it is estimated that as many as 80% of professionals in the field have had breast augmentation.
As an avid fitness enthusiast, Dr. Buford has previously competed in the Max Muscle Mile High Competition where he took 1st place in Men's Masters for his age group. This firsthand experience with the bodybuilding community gives him a unique perspective that has helped many female bodybuilders.
"As a bodybuilder myself, I have an insider's view of what judges are looking for," says Dr. Buford. "I know what it takes to succeed in this field and am always glad to share that knowledge with my patients."
Dr. Buford's expertise in breast surgery leads many women to travel to see him about the procedure at his practice in Denver. Breast augmentation is likely to continue to help many professional and amateur female bodybuilders achieve their competitive goals.
