Look at the last set of photos to get an idea of how dramatic the improvement is with the liposuction of the sides and back. 3 liters of fat were taken from that one area. This surgery resulted in a 4 inch reduction on each side with liposuction alone. These results are not the typical results of just any surgeon, and Dr. Hughes will endeavor to get the best liposuction result. This also illustrates that Dr. Hughes often combines liposuction with other surgeries to get the best result in his state of the art surgery center in Los Angeles, CA.
