Practice Philosophy

Hughes Plastic Surgery is built on a foundation of principles that consistently sets the highest standards in plastic surgery, and continually exceeds patient expectations in results. The first critical component of Dr. Ken Hughes renowned success is the strength of the academic platform upon which the practice rests.

For three decades, Dr. Hughes has sought, and excelled in, the most competitive of academic environments. He completed his undergraduate at Harvard University, received the most sophisticated training at University of Alabama medical school, excelled in his 6 years of plastic surgery residency, and returned to Harvard for a cosmetic fellowship at Harvard University’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Only two plastic surgeons, out of the thousands in the US, have been honored with the Harvard cosmetic fellowship.

Dr. Hughes offers his unique talent, and extraordinary training, to the Los Angeles and Beverly Hills areas, after serving as a clinical instructor in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Harvard Medical School in Boston. He is internationally recognized for the optimal aesthetic results achieved through his development of the Hughes Dimensional and Multifactorial Individualization (HDMI) which is the second critical component of his success.

Recognizing that patients ask for specific procedures when what they really want are specific results, the HDMI embraces a whole patient view in planning aesthetics enhancements. Through the use of this technique:

  • Underlying causes creating the need for aesthetic intervention are assessed and addressed
  • Issues of volume, skin texture, skin tightening, local symmetry and overall balance are addressed
  • The strategic use of multiple approaches to meet the overall vision of the patient’s desired outcome are incorporated.
  • The principles of the HDMI are consistently applied in all surgical interventions, and, since they are patient specific, ensure that each case is viewed and addressed individually, rather than in the “cookie cutter” manner rampant in the industry.
    When appropriate, this approach also offers a tremendous opportunity for select patients to undergo multiple procedures at the same time. Dr. Hughes performs multiple procedures efficiently, effectively, and safely.

    While some plastic surgeons may take 5 or 6 hours to perform a tummy tuck and breast augmentation, Dr. Hughes routinely performs these surgeries in under 2 hours. This reduces the standard time under general anesthesia by three hours which is a significant patient benefit. It reduces the risks of prolonged general anesthesia which can cause an increased risk of blood clots, infection and hypothermia as well coagulopathy (bleeding) issues. Dr. Hughes is a consultant and lecturer for the Institute for Safety in Office-Based Surgery (ISOBS), a nonprofit patient safety advocacy organization started by Harvard professors, and maintains the highest of safety standards in his practice and approaches.

    Dr. Hughes eye for detail, technical expertise in addressing cosmetic challenges from a multi-dimensional approach, and astute grasp of a broad spectrum of solutions to render optimal outcomes, has quickly made him one of the most sought after surgeons in the industry.

    Dr. Hughes performs the entire array of cosmetic and plastic surgeries in the Los Angeles and Beverly Hills areas.

    Dr. Hughes can deliver results no matter what issues you need addressed. Having proficiency and mastery in all of these areas is rare.

    As a former elite athlete and natural bodybuilder, his pursuit of perfection in the human form has a multitude of benefits for his patients. Dr. Hughes knows what looks good, and he has the talent, training and experience to deliver these results to you.
