Excellent, responsive doctor
AMAZING is an understatement
I’ve always been interested in getting a breast augmentation, but never had the courage to do so. Until a few years ago, I started researching doctors. Many of my friends have gotten breast implants, but they went through very commercialized doctors. To be honest, I wasn’t fond of the way some of theirs looked either. I knew I had to find the perfect one. Through realself, I researched doctors and came across Dr. Phan. He had many good reviews, and that’s when I started to research his website and everything else online. I noticed compared to other doctors, he consistently updated his website and posted recent photos, which I greatly appreciated. I knew he cared about sharing his photos to potential patients, and he basically had nothing to hide. I loved all the photos, and although he wasn’t really “known” in Honolulu, I knew I had to go to him first for a consultation, if I ever were to get one. I got a free consultation, and after that initial contact with him, I knew he was the doctor for me! I’m very critical, and I can tell when people (even doctors) are just trying to make a sale, versus actually are concerned about a patients well being. Dr. Phan answered ALL of my questions, and he was so knowledgable in this topic. Prior to this consultation, I already did all my research and also researched Dr. Phan himself. Not only did he answer my questions, but he deepened my knowledge in what I already discovered on my own. He educated me with the different implants, let me feel them, and overall I Just felt so comfortable.. I never thought this would be possible since I basically had to show my biggest insecurity to a stranger. He made me feel safe, and he never forced me to make a decision there. He actually encouraged me to see other doctors, and from that moment on I knew he was the doctor for me. His staff also gave me a tour of his OR, and I must say, everything was brand new and it looked great! The day of the procedure, I wasn’t nervous.. But more nervous about the after care. But let me say… The type of anesthesia he used on me was amazing. When I woke up, I had no hang over feeling, and he also didn’t shove anything down my throat (since I know many other doctors do that.. because it’s cheaper). The medicine he prescribed me didn’t make me nauseous either, and I know MANY of my friends suffered severely from the procedure because they couldn’t take the medicine their doctors prescribed, only because they would end up throwing up. I had barely ANY bruising, actually I would say I had none. I healed within 5 days, and got off the medication he prescribed and switched to ibuprofen after 3 days. The recovery was quick, and although I believe I do have a high pain tolerance and recover quick, I think majority of it had to do with how Dr. Phan operated on me. He is very precise and particular, and doesn’t do things just to make money like other doctors. You can genuinely see that he cares. Also, he has many follow ups after you get your procedure done. Not just one like other doctors, but after one week, after one month, after three months, and so on. It goes to show he really cares of his patients safety and the individuals themselves. It’s been a little more than two weeks, and all I can say is.. You get what you pay for, and I am SUPER happy I chose Dr. Phan. I look in the mirror and can’t believe what I see sometimes. I’ve seen very bad breast augmentations.. But this, is a whole different story. I no longer have any insecurities of wearing a v neck tshirt or even just wearing a tanktop. I’m so happy with everything that led up to the procedure, and also the results. If I had to do it again, I definitely would and I would choose Dr. Phan over and over again. I highly recommend him to ANYONE. Trust me. Even if you are not easily persuaded like I am, visit him for a consultation. You definitely won’t regret it. The doctor and his staff are AMAZING.
20 Year Old Breast Augmentation Revision
Dr. Phan is a very knowledgeable and experienced plastic surgeon. Before deciding to do my breast augmentation, I followed his reviews on Real Self along with several other doctors for a year. He was very specific when he responded to questions on the website and he also received all positive reviews. From there I made an appointment for my free consultation.
I was impressed at how much time he took during my consultation. I didn’t feel rushed and he made sure all my questions were answered before I left his office. He went over all my options and explained all the positive and possible challenges that I may experience with the procedure.
Before my surgery date, Dr. Phan called and emailed me to double check that I had everything in place prior to surgery. His staff at both, the Lihue and Oahu offices were great. Everyone was welcoming and answered all my questions. His nurses and receptionists were very caring.
20 years ago I had a breast augmentation performed in California and one side had a lot of scar tissue. Due to this, one breast was higher than the other. Dr. Phan took out all of my scar tissue and my old implants, and did a revision making both breasts even using IDEAL Implants. They look and feel very natural. I love them!
After my surgery, I was able to text and email Dr. Phan with questions that I had. He responded to me that same day. If I left him a message and had to talk to him on the phone, I received a call right away. He made time for me and I didn’t feel like I was just another patient. My concerns were important to him. There is no comparison if you want a doctor who is professional and caring. Dr. Phan is the best!
I would like to thank Dr. Phan and his staff for an incredible experience from the initial consultation to my last follow up appointment. After consulting with three plastic surgeons, I decided on Dr. Phan. Here are the reasons why I chose Dr. Phan: highly recommended by a friend, warm and caring staff, immaculate office and private surgical room and finally Dr. Phan’s knowledge and attention to detail. Dr. Phan took his time to explain in detail how the procedure I was deciding on would be done. He was very attentive and listened to my questions and concerns. He clearly answered all of my questions until I no longer had concerns. I felt that Dr. Phan was personally committed to resolve my problem area and make me look the best I possible could. I would highly recommend Dr. Phan to anyone who would like to look and feel refreshed like me. Thank you Dr. Phan and staff!
Expert in Enhancing Beauty
Dr. Phan is the BEST PLASTIC SURGEON in Hawaii. I researched for months to find the absolute perfect doctor to perform my breast augmentation. His educational background/certifications, website, patient photos, reviews, and my experience (basically everything) prove he the ONE! When I first called his office, Kawai assisted me in scheduling my complimentary consultation. She was very kind and scheduled me for a time that best fit into my schedule. My husband and I arrived at the office and were greeted by Kawai and Erin’s beautiful smiles. The office is very clean and welcoming. At my consultation, Dr. Phan really took the time to get to know my husband and me and told us about himself as well. He gained rapport and trust (which is extremely important) before proceeding to explain to us the surgery process, benefit and risk factors, and breast implant options. He was very informative and knowledgeable. He listened to us and answered our questions. Erin gave us a tour of the office and surgery area. We felt very comfortable and were confident that he was the doctor for me. Before my surgery date, we returned select my implant size and profile Dr. Phan gave me different implant sizes and profiles to try on until we found exactly what I wanted. He also provided his professional advice and thoughts as we went through each one. I can be very picky and indecisive, but I was never rushed or hurried off. We made the final decision, and IT WAS THE BEST DECISION EVER! My surgery went very smoothly. Everyone checked in on me to ensure I was okay. I was never nervous or worried because I knew I was in the right hands. There was absolutely no pain. I fell asleep and woke up with beautiful breasts. It was that simple. Dr. Phan and his staff, Erin and Kawai, are extremely professional and made me, as well as my husband, feel so comfortable. I was (and still am) treated with the utmost care. They make us feel like we were a part of their family. They gave us all the information we needed and told us what to expect before, during, and after surgery. Nothing was ever a surprise or shock. My husband knew exactly what to do to care for me and said he liked how well they explained things to him. He likes coming with me to my follow-up appointments because he is included in the discussions and has a great rapport with them. I highly recommend Dr. Phan. He is the BEST in his field! No other doctor comes close or compares to him. He truly has a gift in enhancing beauty. My breasts look SO gorgeous! They are large, symmetrical, and natural-looking. He EXCEEDED my expectations. P.S. Parking is available in the structure connected to the building. It is easy to find an open stall, and the structure is roomy/big (in case you have a large SUV like me).
