For three decades, Dr. Kenneth Hughes, MD sought the best quality education (4 years undergraduate at Harvard University) and the most sophisticated training (4 years medical school, 6 years plastic surgery residency, and an additional 1 year cosmetic fellowship at Harvard University’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center).
Very few plastic surgeons have been trained at Harvard. Fewer still have graduated from there twice. Only two plastic surgeons, out of the thousands in this country, have been honored with the year long Harvard cosmetic fellowship. After all of this extensive training, Dr. Kenneth Hughes was certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, the only certifying body for plastic surgeons in the United States.
Dr. Hughes has developed his innate intellectual abilities and technical skill to their fullest potential, and he brings this talent to the Los Angeles and Beverly Hills areas after being a clinical instructor in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Harvard Medical School in Boston. He offers the full spectrum of plastic surgical procedures, and he tailors the operation for each and every patient.
Dr. Kenneth Benjamin Hughes, MD has a great deal of experience in performing multiple procedure cases (tummy tuck, breast augmentation) or (facelift, upper and lower eyelids) or (breast augmentation, liposculpture). If you want to have multiple procedures performed, Dr. Kenneth Hughes is the plastic surgeon for you. Dr. Hughes performs multiple procedure surgeries every day, sometimes several times a day. How does this benefit YOU, the patient?
This means that Dr. Kenneth Hughes can perform multiple procedures efficiently, effectively, and safely.
