Amazing liposculpture transformation. The patient had her waist reduced 6 inches. Dr. Hughes uses only three 4 mm incisions to liposuction the abdomen, flanks, hips, and upper and lower back. A 5 liter liposuction on an average size patient produces dramatic transformations. The key to getting the best results is not only removing a large amount of fat but leaving a very smooth contour that does not look surgical or “done”.
