5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

44 and After 4 Kids Needed Nips and Tucks (Tummy Tuck, BA/BL + Medial Thigh Lift) - Traveled Internationally from Asia to LA

Hi! I'm a healthy, 44-year old working mom of three. I am a US citizen who now lives abroad. My youngest is 6 years old. I am 5'4 and weight 112 lbs. I don't have weight issues (chasing around three kids seems to be enough to burn the calories) but I don't get to exercise either. (This is part of my "step two...") For years, I've been thinking of getting a little cosmetic surgery help...

Rhino + Upper Blepharoplasty + Juvederm = My Refreshed Face! - Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Ken Hughes is the best, period. I could not be happier with my results and experience with Dr. Hughes. I just feel like a better version of myself! People have told me how refreshed I look lately not knowing I even had anything done. I found Dr. Hughes thanks to other reviewers on RealSelf and felt I should also leave a review in hopes of informing others about my wonderful experience...

Body by The Best in the West aka Dr. Hughes! 10 month post-op - Los Angeles

Hi girls, I have been looking at reviews on this site for about two weeks now. I have learned so much and have become convinced that I want to get a BBL, the twist is I'm getting my nose done as well. I decided to write this review because this process can get very overwhelming, and I see that there is a lot of support here. You ladies providing all the support and feedback are amazing! So...

Brand New Butt! - Culver City, CA

Dr. Hughes was excellent. He was absolutely the bomb.com! He is an excellent surgeon, I had BBL 9 months ago with Dr. Bruno and was very disappointed with the lipo and he only put 550 cc's in each cheek. Now I'm a thick chick and that just wasn't enough. Well Dr. Hughes got it right 1300 in each cheek! Ladies if you want to get this done please go and see him. Don't let me forget about...

At a later date I plan to also have a thigh lift and possibly butt implants. I have already began...

Los Angeles, CA

So I finally decided to post something I'm I'm so confused between doctors. I've gone to two consultations with Dr. Hughes and Dr. Bruno I have no idea which one I want I like them both.

1 year postop! Still very happy with my results... Dr. Hughes- Los Angeles, CA

So Ive been a lurker here for years looking at all these beautiful BBL's and I had a consult with Dr. Hughes today and he is a total doll! Very down to earth, warm and most of all HONEST! My consult was for a BBL with liposculpture to the upper and lower abdomen, flanks, and back. I inquired that I was also interested in getting my inner thighs done and he flat out said no he wouldn't touch...
