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.

M. J. – Jan 15, 2020

Will forever be grateful for Dr. Hughes for taking hes time to save my butt! Thank you for your experience and Caring staff. Miriam

Patient

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 :)

Dr. Hughes took the time to listen to exactly what I wanted and exceeded my expectations on multiple procedures. He was honest with me and gave me multiple options for the outcome I wanted. I will definitely be returning for more work. I would recommend Dr. Hughes to all of my friends.

Dr. Hughes was a very caring and skilled Doctor. He spent quality time explaining everything. He's a very honest person and wont lead you on with unrealistic expectations. But as for me he superseded my expectations and my results are amazing. the proof is in the pudding. His staff is also very kind and makes you feel comfortable. Thanks Dr. Hughes

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.

Michelle D. – Nov 01, 2019

Patient

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.

After researching surgeons, Dr. Hughes was at the top of my list. He does not have any cheesy gimmicks and his work speaks volumes. I am so happy with my results that I would not go to any other surgeon for any future procedures. Trust in Dr. Hughes and trust in his process!

I had a great experience with Dr Hughes, i wish i would of done this a long time ago on my first breast implants surgery. I would have not gone anywhere else. I would have saved me a lot of money and stress. Love his professionalism, and his reassurance that everything is going to be ok. Highly recommend Dr. Hughes for any surgical procedure. i will recommend all my friends to him..... Thank you Doc!

Dr. Kenneth Hughes is my favrotie. He told me what the problem was and did not give me high hopes. But I am very happy with the results. I had fat that had died in my butt from another BBL. Dr. Kenneth Hughes removed the dead fat from the buttocks and left a dent, which I knew it would. However, the pain was gone and I could live my life. Dr. Hughes then transferred fat a few months later to the dent and the butt looks great. I could not be happier. Thank you Dr. Hughes.

This was my first serious surgery. I had gotten a Brazilian butt lift and breast lift with implants. I was nervous and apprehensive about it but Dr. Hughes gave me the comfort of his understanding and abundance of knowledge to ease my worries. Everything was amazing... besides the pain but it is all in the process.

I had to redo my breast implants after 8 years and Dr. Hughes again did an amazing job. I asked for a natural look and that is exactly what I got. The pricing was also affordable. I highly recommend Dr. Hughes to anyone looking for a natural look for breast augmentation surgery.

Dr. Hughes is realistic and underpromises some time and over delivers all the time. His staff is warm and caring. You could not ask for more. He is a Harvard graduate and trained out the kazoo. In part I chose Dr. Hughes for his answers on realself. Patients should use board certified plastic surgeons. Also his pictures are miraculous. I came from out of state, because I felt that he was exceptional aesthetically and surgically.

Dr. Hughes fixed my belly button from a previous tummy tuck.

meredith – Aug 04, 2019

Patient

I had liposuction done in another country and it was lumpy and my abdomen looked horrible. I would not wear anything that showed my belly. Dr. Hughes really improved the look with bodytight and liposuction and some fat grafting.

1 anon – Jul 29, 2019

Patient

Dr. Kenneth Hughes Los Angeles - Dr. Hughes spent the time to tell me what to expect for surgery and he did not tell me what I wanted to hear. He told me I would need a tummy tuck for sure and that liposuction would only remove fat and not fix my skin. He was certainly right. I will be having a tummy tuck in 3 months. Dr. Hughes took out a great deal of fat out of my midsection - I guess called liposuction 360.

1 Jul 24, 2019

Patient

Dr. Kenneth Hughes was my choice for plastic surgeon to perform Brazilian buttlift. He had the best pictures and the most. His liposuction abdomen work was the smoothest and cleanest. Dr. Hughes seemed to get the greatest change without making it look strange like some results like many results I have seen. Although the change is not as much as I would have wanted, I know Dr. Hughes gave me as much a change for my body.

Dr. Kenneth Hughes is the best plastic surgeon in Los Angeles. I have looked all around with all of my problems and he is the only one to tell it like it is and offer a reasonable plan to help with my problems.

Dr. Kenneth Hughes, MD in Los Angeles performed a wonderful Brazilian buttlift for me and the fat stayed pretty well. I am pleased.

Jul 07, 2019

Patient

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Kenneth Benjamin Hughes, MD. I first looked at this website www.hughesplasticsurgery.com and was impressed with his pictures of body lift and what he calls the inferior buttock lift. So many plastic surgeons told me this was impossible, but he seems to do this all the time for patients from all over. So I selected Dr. Hughes to perform this for me as well and it has been a game changer.

Dr. Hughes told me to lose 35 lbs before my surgery to minimize health risks and improve the safety for me. I am very happy with the results and I did not have complications. Thank you Dr. Hughes.

Jun 21, 2019

Patient

For years, I struggle with my weight. I was finally able to lose about 50 lbs or so. However, I was never happy with my shape. I looked at some of the before and after pictures of plastic surgeons who performed tummy tucks and body lifts and butt lifts on patients who lost weight and they always looked very square. Yeah they looked better but they were not what I wanted. Dr. Hughes used a combination of techniques to help get more of an hourglass figure and a more projected rounder buttock while taking care of the loose skin as well.

Jun 20, 2019

Patient

Dr. Kenneth Hughes is the GOAT. He was able to change my body in ways that I did not think possible. he is a straight shooter and he does not mess around. He is always available for patients but he has no patience if you are nor serious about recovery. I really did understand him. Kudos

Jun 19, 2019

Patient

I love Dr. Hughes. I know he has a terrible job dealing with all of the complaining about things we cannot get no matter what. He always returned emails at all hours. I mean deos he sleep? Anywho I had removal of silicone or hydrogel who knows what they injected me with. I had some skin that was about to die and probably woudl have died if Dr. Hughes had not helped me. He removed alot of this foreign material and I instantly felt better after I got this poison out of me. If you are deabting about doing this to improve your health, it is the best thing I did for me. Although a lot of people tried to convince me to liposuction the material out, Dr. Hughes emphasized how the material should be removed to the extent possible while not killing all of your own tissue or removing all of your fat with liposuction. I will go back to get my buttock reconstructed if necessary with Dr. Kenneth B.. Hughes.

Did NOT have a good experience with him with a Rhinoplasty he did. He continuously dismissed my concerns during the healing process and did nothing to help. He could care less.

I had a great experience with Dr. Hughes. He is very particular with postop instructions and he gets very upset when patients do not do what he says. But this also shows he cares.

Dr. Hughes removed some silicone injections or marbles out of my butt and hips. He used smaller incisions than other doctors and I had very little pain and recovery was a breeze. I will go back to him if I need anything else.

Dr. Hughes was able to revise a number of previous surgeries I had had. Arm lift, thigh lift, and buttock lift were all revised to my satisfaction, which is difficult to achieve. Thank you Dr. Hughes for your patience and skill.

I am writing this review on behalf of my mother who got her surgery by Dr. Hughes last year. She is still emotionally and physically traumatized from her experience. Dr. Hughes took on a case he should not have. She is still having trouble walking and is horribly scarred. Please stay away from this doctor. He is not proficient and is unfortunately well protected by the government.

Wow, great doctor, very personable and approachable in correspondence, I love that, such a convenience since I live in Sacramento. I had BodyTite, I choose Dr. Hughes over four other doctor's because of his experience, integrity and the cost for four areas that required BodyTite are moderate, heaven sent to find a scrupulous doctor and such a quintessential trait. only have 3" of extra skin, after viewing before/after with Dr. Kenneth's knowledge of liposuction, made my decision very easy.

Most honest and dedicated plastic surgeon you will ever find. He will not promise you an unrealistic result and he gives you so much of his time to respond to any questions before and after surgery.
