Dr. Phan is proud and excited to be one of the first plastic surgeons to offer the latest and most significantly advanced breast implant design to date approved by the FDA- the IDEAL IMPLANT- STRUCTURED SALINE- FILLED BREAST IMPLANT which combinesthe best features of saline- filled and silicone gel implants.  It offers the more natural feel that women look for in silicone gel implants, but because it’s uniquely designed internal structure is filled with saline, it offers the peace of mind that women look for in saline- filled implants, meaning there is no need for routine screening MRI’s to rule out silent ruptures of silicone gel implants or routine preventive maintenance replacement.  Book your appointment today for a complementary consultation to see if this implant is  IDEAL for you!

By far the best Plastic surgeon on island! 

I couldn’t have picked a better surgeon! I’ve had my fare share of consults but it never felt right. That is until I found Dr. Phan! Dr Phan and his staff are absolutely amazing! From the moment I walked into his office I knew I found the perfect surgeon! Being in the medical field I knew every part of the puzzle had to fit in order to achieve the best result not only aesthetically but surgically. Just because a doctor claims he’s a plastic surgeon doesn’t mean he’s a BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON! With that being said PLEASE do your research! Make sure the facility/ anesthesiologist are certified. It may seem like it’s a given but I found 1 that definitely wasn’t certified which was referred in his price. I had a mommy makeover which in my case included a full tummy tuck and liposuction. To be honest I was prepared for a lot of pain/discomfort but to my surprise I didn’t have any! Dr Phans use of a pain pump eliminated the use of oral pain meds. I pretty much took over the counter Tylenol for my discomfort. One thing I truly appreciated was Docs honesty as it set the tone for realistic expectations. Being 35 yrs old and 185lbs(prior to surgery) I knew a tummy tuck and lipo wasn’t going to fix my abdominal area 100% but all I wanted was for that area to be more functional. With the help of Dr Phan I definitely exceeded my goal! He removed 6lbs from my tummy and 4 from my hips!! Now I’m only 10lbs from my ideal weight!! I can’t believe how amazing everything looks!

Wonderful results!

I had breast augmentation with another plastic surgeon years ago and started feeling pain in one of my breasts. After a consult with Dr. Phan I was found to have capsular contracture which was, at that time, causing some pain. Dr. Phan explained my options and was very quick to answer several phone calls, emails and text messages about questions I had. I completed my procedure with the Ideal implant at his wonderful facility on Oahu. He and his staff are very compassionate and always ready to assist in whatever questions one might have. I am so very happy with my results and highly recommend Dr. Phan!!

I had an amazing experience

I just recently had my Brest augmentation done with Dr. Phan. I was pleasantly surprised how quickly Dr. Phan responds to you by phone or text. He was there for me every step of the way. I had my consultation and was able to schedule my operation at ease with his amazing staffing! The new office in Honolulu is very personable making you feel welcomed and the building is really nice. I love my results and I will continue to recommend Dr. Phan to all my friends and family.

I got breast implants when I turned 18. Over the past 22 years they didn’t give me any major problems and thankfully I was able to breast feed my children, but they never really felt quite right to me and I often wished I had never gotten them. When I turned 40 and had my first mammogram it really brought my attention to the age of my implants and the need for their removal. I knew it is common for women to remove old implants and replace them with new implants but I really didn’t like the idea of putting new implants in. I surf, teach yoga and play guitar and the foreign objects on my chest often felt in the way. They even felt in the way when I hugged my kids close to my heart.  I just wanted to be all natural again and I am so grateful that I found a highly skilled doctor who took good care of me. Thanks to Dr. Phan’s intuition, surgical skill, advanced techniques and compassionate post-operative care I am feeling better than ever, and I am very happy with the look and feel of my natural breasts. I consulted with six plastic surgeons before I met with Dr. Phan. He was the only doctor that offered to do implant removal, complete removal of the scar capsules that surrounded the implants, and a breast lift at the same time. That seemed like the best plan for my situation. Several doctors I saw said removing the scar tissue was unnecessary. I understand that it makes the surgery more complicated and carries more risks, but because my implants were so old, there was a good possibility that they were leaking silicone into the scar capsule. I really felt like it would be better for my health in the long run if I found a doctor skilled in capsule removal. I knew I was in good hands with Dr. Phan. He is on the most recent list of Honolulu Magazine’s Top Doctors in Hawaii, he has an impressive collection of before and after photos, and he has a state of the art surgical facility where he performs surgeries with a board-certified anesthesiologist under IV sedation rather than general anesthesia. My surgery went well and I woke up without any pain or nausea. I never took a single pain pill! The day after the surgery Dr. Phan showed me my implants and scar capsules and it turned out they were indeed leaking and there was silicone inside the scar capsule, so I’m really relieved that he got that out of my body. He was also always there for me during my post operative healing period. He is unbelievably responsive with phone calls and text messages and his staff is very kind and helpful. I am exactly one month post-op and I feel completely recovered. I went surfing for the first time today since my surgery and I felt so light and balanced without the implants. I even felt confident in my bikini top because Dr. Phan did such a good job lifting my natural breast tissue back into a nice shape.  My only regret is that I didn’t do this sooner.

I Couldn’t Be Happier!

When I was searching for a plastic surgeon I wasn’t looking for someone to hold my hand through a potentially scary experience, but for a doctor that I could trust to deliver expert results. I was not disappointed. Dr. Phan’s professional manner and care are exemplary, he gracefully accommodated my schedule and made himself entirely available, but what really defines him is the beauty of his work and his eye for aesthetic adjustments. He marries the science and art of his craft perfectly. I couldn’t be happier to have trusted him to perform the work that came out so beautifully.
