I had surgery back in April, and I am so glad I finally went through with it! I was super terrified to have this surgery. I think I read and looked at a million reviews before finally committing. I still have a bit of swelling, but noticed the definition starting to stand out. I can't wait to see where I will be at this time next year!

I am so glad I ended up going with Dr. Hughes. In the beginning, I was a little apprehensive to be honest. I walked into his office (which was a zoo at the time and super small) and it was so loud and full of people. The people that worked there were super loud, gossiping with each other as if they were at the hair salon, and even a f-bombs were thrown in. Now, I am no prude by any means- BUT for my first impression, going into a place of business where I'm possibly going to spend thousands of dollars, and super afraid to begin with........it just didn't sit right with me. I literally almost didn't go with him based on this alone. I had been to other upscale offices with very professional individuals who made me feel safe. Now, with all of that said- I'm so glad I didn't let that cloud my judgement. I found out later that he shares an office with another Doc, and those staff members didn't even work for him (which they will clearly point out when you ask them anything regarding Dr. Hughes). Dr. Hughes has a wonderful nurse named Sandra, who always makes me feel comfortable & safe. The other thing that bothered me post op was how quickly we have to vacate the recovery room, and that the doc didn't even check on me or see me off when I woke up. I sound like such a girl, but I also was a bit shocked that he never called me the next day or any day after surgery to check in. I have never had a surgeon not call to check in. There is just something about that that makes you feel like everything is going to be ok. You also will most likely not be seen at your appointment time- for some reason it doesn't bother me with him I'm usually super impatient, but I don't mind it as much because I know he is so dedicated to his work. SO to the stuff you really want to hear- He did a great job! I am satisfied, and he is a very caring doc. The best part is he listens, and if you ever need him, he responds within 10 minutes! I would highly suggest him to any of my friends or family members. My incision looks great, and even though I had a couple of hiccups with my own body issues regarding healing, I am finally healing nicely and have a flat tummy! I hope none of this comes off as negative, I really want people to know that yeah there may be some annoying stuff, but he is an AWESOME surgeon so don't let the little stuff bother you!
