Coming Back From a Near Death Experience

Share Your Opinion Of Dr. Kenneth B. Hughes

After searching for months for the perfect Dr, I came across Dr Hughes. He's so kind and honest! He responds to all my emails within a short period of time. (I send him a lot of questions, trust me) I'm 5'3 about 115. Pretty petite frame but he was able to put 960 cc into each cheek and also added some fat into my hips. Which I think is ammmmazing. I didn't think I had that much fat for him to transfer. With the aggressive lipo he is known for I had very little bruising and I felt fine 3 days post op! I'm so in love with my new butt and tiny waist, it's perfect!
