This practice is a hidden gem! I had no idea what was available to me, and I absolutely love the quality of the procedures and the level of expertise and care.
Again, thank you for all the office has done for me. My story is long but the bottom line is, now at age 51 I am finally comfortable to go without foundation ... but never, ever sunscreen!! Since I was in my early 20s, this was not an option for me. The brown spots and texture of my skin is completely 180º of what it was 20 years ago and 30s. I would like to share a picture with you so you can see for yourself. Yes, time has passed, but my skin is so much better 20 years later! Dr. Hugo has an eye for what is best for his patients and he has demonstrated this to me through several skin care procedures. Dr. Hugo tells it like it is and you know he will deliver!
I know his staff must have been hand-picked by Dr. Hugo. Everyone is so very friendly and knowledgeable. You will never feel rushed in this office. You will know you are top priority from the minute you walk in the door. (Mrs. Virginia 2000 and first runner up for Mrs. America)
I began researching cosmetic surgery, and surgeons, about two years before I heard Dr. Hugo speak at an Expo. I had already interviewed two surgeons, but just didn't have that "comfort level" I felt as soon as I heard Dr. Hugo's presentation. Within minutes of my first appointment with Dr. Hugo, his genuinely honest, open appraisal of what "work" I needed, and his attention to detail, convinced me that he was the surgeon I could totally trust.
Today, post-surgery, and several maintenance procedures later, I still have that total comfort level, and even more so. His knowledge, surgical skill, and expertise, coupled with his attention to detail, are evident from the results of my surgery! I still look like me, but about 15 years younger!! That tired-looking face is no longer in my mirror. Just a happy me, who looks outside like I still feel inside. I am pleased and comforted by Dr. Hugo's availability to always answer any of my questions or concerns. It is very evident that he really cares about his patients "after the surgery." His entire staff is truly amazing! Not only are they nice, friendly, and informative, but very discrete and professional.
I am retiring and moving, but plan to come back regularly for my "maintenance visits" and any other procedures I might need. I highly recommend Dr. Hugo to everyone who has ever felt, as I did, the trepidation of cosmetic surgery. He will calm your worries, and you will look and feel better. No doubts, no concerns. Sincerely,
Dr. Ben Hugo

What Dr. Hugo did for me was not just bring back a youthful look; his artistry stirred me to continue to lose weight and once again take pride in my appearance.
Since I have returned to Georgia after eight years, I have run into friends who barely recognize me because I am so thin and young looking. Now that is something to brag about and my new husband takes every opportunity to do so.
Thank you so much for the consultation about the tummy tuck. You were so nice and took the time to explain everything to me. You do beautiful work. I look forward to having you do my surgery.
Thank you again,
Dear Dr. Hugo and his team,
I must thank each of you for the outstanding care I received before, during, and after my Fractional CO2 laser treatment. My result is very pleasing, and I wish you could see it for yourself. I think I am reluctant to have a local person Botox® around my lips. This may need to be a project when I next visit Virginia.
What more could a patient ask for ...
Maureen and Diane: You were always such friendly voices on the other end of the phone and never seemed rushed whenever I called looking for someone to answer a question or to schedule (or reschedule, as was often the case with me) appointments.
The amount of time that you spent with me prior to surgery and the comprehensiveness of the pre-op info was incredible. I left that day with all my information neatly and professionally packaged and did not have one single question left unanswered. I could not have been any better prepared. Pat: Your incredibly calm and gentle manner as you were getting me ready to "go to sleep" and as I was "waking up" was very reassuring. I was never left alone for even a minute.
When you weren't lasering me or dubbing me the "Fraxel Queen," you were on the other end of the phone confidently and reassuringly answering all my questions.
You really do deserve much of the credit for my smooth recovery. For once in my life, I did everything I was told to do and didn't attempt to "push the envelope." Since you had just been through the same surgery yourself, I never once questioned your instructions to go home, get in bed, remain quiet and calm, and stay off the computer. You also reassured me that the boredom would not kill me. Dr. Hugo: What can I say? Surgical + artistic skill = a very happy patient. Thank you! The extensive amount of time that you spent discussing all the various options and helping me to develop a plan and realistic expectations was invaluable. Once it was made, I never once doubted, nor was ever anxious about my decision. I knew I was in the right hands. In this age of "Wal-Mart medicine," it's refreshing to find a physician that still believes in the importance of and ultimate value in assembling a top-notch team to provide individualized and high quality care.
As a woman who three years ago avoided looking in a mirror, I want to thank you profusely for restoring a more youthful, softer, and natural me. You possess excellent artistic abilities combined with superior surgical skills, and I have learned to value your advice about conservative procedures to achieve the results I desire.
Three years ago, when I was 66 years of age, you performed a lower face and neck lift. You and your entire staff were marvelous from the time I first arrived for my initial consultation through the post-operative care phase. I continue to be amazed at the outstanding results you achieved, particularly when I look back on my "before pictures." Acquaintances who did not know I had the surgery would say things like, "Retirement really agrees with you. You look 15 years younger now."
Since then, I consult with you once a year and plan how you can improve the texture and clarity of my sun-damaged skin as well as utilize fillers very conservatively to minimize some wrinkles but retain a natural look. What impresses me most are the results you have been able to achieve to eradicate those unsightly brown spots on my face, neck, and chest by using your Fractional CO2 laser. Recently you performed that procedure on a more aggressive level than I underwent two years ago. The results two years ago were quite good, but this time, the results were exceptional. The slightly longer "down time" was more than worth the even, clearer appearance of my skin. I can actually feel confident being seen without any makeup now, something I have not done since I was a young girl.
Please feel free to use this letter as a testimonial on your website. Any woman who chooses you as her plastic surgeon will be in very capable and caring hands. As the wife of a very meticulous retired neurosurgeon, I think I am a very good judge.
Thank you again.
I'd like to take the opportunity to show my appreciation and thank you so much for making my recovery journey go so smoothly.
Dr. Hugo, your expertise and talent as a gifted plastic surgeon resulted in my positive experience.
I am so pleased with my results and have received many compliments from family and friends.
Pat, Maureen, Diane, Kryssy and Alice-you all provide such a warm, friendly, compassionate atmosphere in the office, which put me at ease.
Again, I am truly blessed and thankful to have "your team" as my recovery continues.
