I am a very thin patient and I was very afraid to get bad dimples from my 360 degree liposuction, a prune sagging belly or a Tara Reid like belly. I am an out of country patient and it was quite painful for the first 4 days, but the pain subsided after the 4 day. Dr Hughes and his team have always been there to patiently answer my questions and concerns,and now, after 5 weeks, I am thrilled with my results and still the swelling is still there, it will keep getting better and better ! Results have been delivered, I would do the surgery over again, worth it, thank you !

i can not begin to describe how happy i am with my stomach lipo and fat transfer to hips with dr kenneth hughes. he is a very honest plastic surgery and explained to me in great detail what he can do for me. i have been to other plastic surgeons and was very happy with them as well but for some reason dr kenneth went above and beyond my expectations. i can not wait to show off my new body

I cannot speak enough about what an amazing experience I had. From the consultation to the surgery date and the post op the doctor was involved in every step of the process. In addition his ability to hear your wants and translate that to your result is impressive. This is a doctor who knows what he is doing and will make sure you have the safe and rewarding experience you're looking for.

I really wanted a bbl for years and throughout those years i would research doctors and try to narrow down to my favorite.I came across Dr.Kenneth Hughes and put him on my list of favorites. After more research and hours of reading reviews, I finally decided to chose him. Staff responds back fast and is very polite. The doctor himself was very polite. At no time did i feel rushed, he gave me plenty of time to talk about the procedure. He answered all my questions in detail and was honest about what to expect. He gave me a slim waist and big hips, the hourglass shape that i wanted. I feel way more confident in my new body shape.

Dr. Hughes is hands down the best surgeon I have encountered. I have had multiple procedures over the years, and he by far exceeded every expectation and more with my procedure. He took the time to listen to my every concern and addressed them in depth. He was very quick in responding to my emails, no matter what time of day or night I sent them. He goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy with your results. I feel so blessed to have found him! I highly recommend Dr. Hughes for any of your cosmetic surgery needs. He is very down to earth and honest with what you need/what your body can handle unlike some doctors who are clearly trying to sell you on any and every procedure. Bottom line, if you want great results, book with Dr. Hughes!

I came to Doctor Hughes on a referral from a girlfriend who he did a bbl for her because she looked incredible. I'm 59 years old, 5'4 and weight 125 Lb. So I'm pretty petite and slender but lost the volume to my butt do to aging. I told the Dr Hughes that I wanted to stay looking small in my overall appearance but I wanted a cute butt. He gave me exactly what I asked for and and now I have a beautiful bottom...I highly recommend him.

I had a bad butt implant job my another physician. The butt implants were uneven and causing me pain in my legs. Dr. Hughes did a great job in removing my butt implants and the fluid build up that could have potentially caused an infection. My leg pain stopped after removing the implants and by butt looks a lot better.

I went to Dr. Hughes for my procedure after looking tirelessly online for the right one. As soon a I met with him, I knew that I wanted him to be the one to do my procedure. What is great about Dr. Hughes is that he tells you the honest truth. He isn't just looking to take your money. He wants to make sure you know all the risks and are realistic about your results. What's most important is that you listen to his post op instructions. He's not just telling you them for the fun of it. It's up to the patient to keep their results. Dr. Hughes' office also let me use a different credit line than they had already had. I don't believe anyone else would've done this for me. My experience with the rest of the staff was wonderful as well. I'm very happy with my results and will continue to see Dr. Hughes for any other procedures in the future.

Dr. Hughes is so patient with me and has helped me so much with my cosmetic journey! He's like my Doctor Dad, he's very caring and will do whatever he can to help you reach your dream body. He's always been honest and upfront with me. If he feels something isn't right he will he tell you the truth, he doesn't just lead you on into believing this fairy tale. I got a butt augmentation and I'm absolutely loving my results. I am so glad I found Dr. Hughes, he will forever be my cosmetic doctor. He also has an amazing team working with him, the nurses are so sweet and have always helped me out with any questions I might have. They make me feel very comfortable and I can't thank them enough for always taking care of me when I come in the office. I'm a happy girl, and I always tell my friends about his STUNNING work. If I was able to leave 6 stars I would.

I came in for a consultation with Dr. Hughes not his office manager like other places I had gone to before coming here. He is a great listener and caring physician. He answered ALL my questions thoroughly before and after my procedure. I didn't feel pressure about my decisions. He takes his time to listen to your concerns and give you great advise. I will be coming back to him for my future procedures. I highly recommend him. He is very punctual and great mannered. Great staff also. They are the best.

Doctor Hughes was able to make a large, unsightly scar across my back look so much better through a scar revision. I was awake during the procedure and the recovery was not bad at all given the length and thickness of the scar excised. I am very happy with my results, as well as Doctor Hughes and his amazing staff. It's extremely important to feel comfortable when someone is making cuts in your body, and I felt that each step of the way despite the slight discomfort of the actual procedure. Thanks Dr. Hughes, Natalie and Magda :)

After playing a lifetime of sports, I had to pull way back on my active life because of knee issues. With that said, my buttocks dropped tremendously. I was embarrassed wearing anything tight or bathing suits. After visiting hundreds of plastic surgeons who had no solution to my problem, I found Dr. Hughes. He was understanding of my insecurity and quickly responded with a solution to the problem. I was blown away with his abilities, his eye and intelligence of the body. It was another level that I have not seen in plastic surgeons. He was honest and transparent about what he could fix, the complications, and the results. A year later, my results are amazing. I have my confidence back. I love my butt again! He's forever my surgeon! I would never trust my body to anyone else! Thank you Dr. Hughes!

Dr. Kenneth Hughes has performed a revision surgery on me in the past, and I was so amazed by his work, his prices are competitive, and he has a very clean surgical room. He will tell you if you need a particular type of procedure that will best suite your needs. I only trust Dr. Hughes with my body.

My experience with Doctor Hughes has been nothing but phenomenal. He has been straightforward and upfront from the very beginning-which I highly admire given that many doctors are keen on telling you what you want to hear vs. what actually needs to be said. I am one month post-op from my bbl and I already feel amazing. He is an absolute miracle worker and I couldn't be happier with my results.
