Aloha and Welcome to Hawaii Plastic Surgery Institute.

First and foremost, our practice is committed to providing exceptional patient care. This means ensuring the overall health and wellness of our patients before, during and after surgery. We will go above and beyond so that you have a positive experience.

To learn more about plastic surgery, our practice, and the procedures we perform, you can schedule and appointment online or contact us by phone or email.


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!

Reviews for Bao L. Phan, M.D.


I had my breast augmentation redone by Dr. Phan. He and his staff are phenomenal. They were there every step of the way. The way they took their time answering my questions very patiently and detailed made me very comfortable. Dr. Phan spent almost 2 hours with me during my initial consultation and then called me after I emailed him with a few other questions that I had. Amber is also very responsive to my calls and emails. The night before my procedure the anesthesiologist called me to go over any questions I had. On the day of the procedure everyone made me and my boyfriend extremely comfortable. His nurse was there to dry my tears when I got nervous. From the front staff to the back, they are all so amazing 
Going in I was afraid due to the bad experience I had with the original surgeon. My results are amazing and getting better every day. 
I highly recommend Dr. Phan and would go back to him in a heartbeat!

Highly Recommend

I chose Dr. Phan to perform my surgery after consulting with several other surgeons in town, and I’m so glad I did. The results were just what I was hoping for.
With the initial (free) consultation, he spent over an hour explaining every detail of what he recommended for me and why. I had 2 more visits prior to my procedure to ask more questions. I never felt rushed and was entirely comfortable after his explanations.
His superb training, experience, and board certification were also important factors in my decision.
His office and operating room are immaculate. I had very tolerable pain after my abdominoplasty, because he inserts a pain pump at the time of the procedure. This delivers non-narcotic pain medication, minimizing the need for opioid medications after the surgery.
I was pleased he offers total IV sedation rather then general anesthesia. This reduces the risks associated with anesthesia.
He was very attentive after the surgery, communicating with me daily, even when he was not on island.
In all, I felt completely cared for from beginning to end. Not only by Dr. Phan, but also by his incredibly friendly and helpful office staff (particularly Amber).
Dr. Phan is a highly skilled, detail-oriented, and caring surgeon. Hawaii is so lucky to have him!

Amazing Results

It was very good. He is very informative. There are different options he presents that you may be a candidate for.
Dr. Phan is an artist at work. He has had years of experience and you will learn that on your free consultation. He has worked on the two other islands for those many years. He is quite vested in his clinic. In fact, he has the only “Infini” machine in the islands.
He is a very rare physician who uses your own fat as fillers which last for 10 years! That is possible depending on the procedures you are a candidate for. It is less expensive and last much longer than those chemical fillers.
I had just finished my post-op review. I saw my pre and post pictures. They were amazing.
His staff in very kind and patient with the many questions you may have. The surgical staff is proficient and professional.
I took years to find this doctor because I saw his wonderful work on a very close friend on the island of Maui. He only has recently moved to Oahu, the last few years. He was partnered with another doctor which made it difficult to find Dr. Phan.
I’m glad a waited and finally was able to find him!

I chose Dr. Phan to do my BA since many of my friends had their BA’s done by him.  They had great experiences and results with him and after meeting with him for my consultation, I knew that I could trust him to give me the best results possible.  Dr. Phan and his office manager Amber made themselves available anytime I had questions or concerns.  I never felt pressured after the consultation to schedule the surgery…I felt like I could take my time to do more research and decide on the right type of implant for me.  Dr. Phan only does surgeries on Oahu and living on another island, I knew I was going to have to plan a commute. Going into the consultation, I wanted IDEAL saline implants but after feeling all the different implants and Dr. Phan explaining pros and cons of all of them, I was torn between the anatomical “gummy bear” and the IDEAL.  Once I decided on the gummy bear implants and got my time off approved, I scheduled my surgery.  I decided on the gummy bear implants because I liked the natural look and feel and Dr. Phan has a lot of experience with the textured implant.  

We arrived on Oahu the night before my surgery.  We stayed at a hotel in Waikiki which was 10 minutes away from Dr. Phan’s office.

The morning of surgery (Wednesday), everything happened pretty quickly.  The nurse came and brought me in the back and from there I changed, they ran a pregnancy test, once they got the results, the anesthetist Ed came by to put the IV in.  He was really good, I didn’t make it easy for him as my veins were hard to find.  Dr. Phan was there to talk me through what was going on and I liked that.  Once Ed got the IV in and they were ready for me, I walked over to the OR room and about a minute later I was out.  Waking up, Dr. Phan was right there and was explaining what happened.  He said we ended up going with the 370cc implant (we were in between 325 and 370) so I was happy.  My bf came to pick me up and the nurse wheeled me down to the car.  My bf mentioned that he was impressed with the fact that Dr. Phan was the one that called him to notify him that I was out of surgery.  I guess he expected a call from the office staff.

The next morning (Thursday) we went back and Dr. Phan went over some post-op care and also asked how I did yesterday.  I survived only on Tylenol Wednesday night butThursday night I needed to take the pain meds Dr. Phan prescribed me.  We went back on Friday since Dr. Phan wanted to see me before we flew home on Saturday.  Fridayafternoon I was able to walk to get lunch from somewhere near our hotel and that night I was able to go out to dinner.  Very little nausea on Thursday and Friday, no vomiting at all.  Zofran and ginger ale helped.  Saturday afternoon we flew home, of course I couldn’t lift anything heavy but I was fine to fly home.  

I’m currently 4 weeks post-op and love my results!  Dr. Phan has exceeded my expectations (and they are very high) and my boobs will just keep getting better and better every day.  

If you’re thinking about getting a BA, call for a free consult with Dr. Phan.  If you live on Kauai or Maui, it’s not difficult to go to Oahu for the surgery.  If you can afford the extra expense to spend a weekend on Oahu for the surgery, do it!  All your pre-op/post-op can be done at home.  He is very hands on through the whole process and this is a journey so you want someone that you can trust along for the ride.  He answers emails promptly and he gives you his cell # to call with any questions.  I’ve read/watched others share their experiences and during post-op appts, they don’t even see their surgeon, they see nurses or assistants.  I personally don’t like that, not that I don’t think nurses are capable, it’s just that I chose the surgeon for the surgeon, not for the nurses.  

Dr. Phan will be there with you every step of the way.  I am so glad I chose him to do my BA!  If I decide to get any other work done, I wouldn’t go to anyone else.  Thank you, Dr. Phan!!

Dr. Phan is an amazing surgeon! I’m personally not a patient YET but I was able to be with my girlfriend who got a breast augmentation with him in Oahu. We flew up from Maui for her surgery and from beginning to end he was very personable. He kept in contact with both her and I, checking on her constantly along with always being available for questions and concerns after the surgery. This eased the stress of taking care of my girlfriend post surgery just knowing no matter what concern I had I could always call him. His OR and office is very clean and organized and his staff was amazing and friendly as well. Dr. Phan was able to answer any questions we had and made us very comfortable in everything. I would highly recommend Dr.Phan to anyone and plan to see him myself in the future.
