There is no way to hide the buttons completely, the document security properties will go as far as greying out the Print button, but File>Save as will still be available.

The client UI is controlled by the PDF as part of page display options. You can force a PDF to open in full screen mode from the Document Properties (Window Options on the 'Initial View' tab) and hide the button and menu bars from the UI section underneath.

However you should note that a user can override this by pressing function keys to unhide.
