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.


this is the place! I’ve done my research from videos, to review websites, you name it.
LOCATION: His office is located on the 9th floor (you can always call their office for their address if you don’t trust the maps app on your iPhone lol)
Park on any floor that is convenient for you and use the elevator to go the ground floor, then you’ll have to walk into the lobby, you’ll see another set of elevators take that and go to the 9th floor, and you’ll see signs for his office which is 999.

CONSULTATION: I had a consultation with Dr. Phan and as like anyone else i was pretty nervous, i had watched all the youtube, TikTok videos i could find for breast aug and it didn’t seem like enough. Dr. Phan is amazing at going through every detail and knowing what will suit YOUR body and what i liked most about him was he cares more of what looks BEST for YOUR body. If you haven’t don’t much research he is more than willing to answer your questions and he will work with you to find a good solution, one that you will also be happy with. He will also do the best and the most he can for you in the safest way possible. That was the moment i knew i was at the right place.

SURGERY DAY: Prior to surgery day they will give you a packet basically telling you what need to do to prep yourself for surgery. When you arrive you need to the basics, take a pregnancy test, undress into the gown they give you. The nurse i totally forgot her name i was so anxious that morning lol, but she sets you up with an IV then you wait for doc to mark you up and after that you’re into the OP room! After surgery, i honestly did not feel any pain once i got home i assumed there would be blood. LET ME TELL YOU, THERE WAS NOOOO DROP OF BLOOD, none!

STAFF: Amber his receptionist is the sweetest! Always answers with a polite tone, always greets you at the door with a smile and a warm hello!
Grace also so sweet and amazing, other receptionists need to take notes because they were so amazing i didn’t have to dread walking into their office or just calling them because they were always so nice and you just always feel comfortable.

POST-OP APPOINTMENTS: The amount of post-op appointments was so reassuring because he really wants to make sure that you are healing well and correctly. If you have any questions or concerns he will always go over things every appointment just so you are aware, and that you understand.

OVERALL: I 1000% recommend Dr.Phan he is truly amazing , i read a review where he came off as rude, arrogant, Despite that review i came in for a consult and wanted to just see what it was like for myself, in actuality he is honest, genuine, and most importantly he wants what is best for the patient and he wants to achieve the patients goals in a safe manner, while meeting expectations! I am 6 months post op. I healed amazing, i love my results and i do not regret one thing. He was amazing in ways i couldn’t even imagine, from the consult, surgery, recovery everything went so smoothly, he has GREAT BEDSIDE MANNER what more could you ask for!? I definitely recommend Dr.Phan and his staff to anyone and everyone. I had an amazing experience thank you Dr.Phan and staff.

Endoscopic brow lift

Dr. Phan is absolutely amazing at the work he does and genuine as well. I naturally have lower eyebrows and botox never worked on me and would always make my eyebrows drop even more.I decided surgery was the best option for me. I met with quite a few surgeons and ultimately was impressed with his work and bedside manner.He really listened to what I wanted and laid out what to expect during and post surgery. 
Here are my post 1 month results and it looks amazing! I feel soo much more confident! Definitely worth it!

LOVE my results

From the moment you call and speak to Dr Phan’s staff (Amber & Grace) you’ll know you picked the right surgeon…at least for me, I did. I’m all about vibes and instantly felt comfortable speaking with Amber and Grace when I called to schedule a consultation for breast augmentation surgery.

I waited about a few weeks to get in for my consultation. Prior to going, I did all my research on different Oahu surgeons and the types of breast implants and procedures offered. After watching tons of YouTube and googling every type of implant, I knew I wanted the IDEAL structured saline implant. It’s similar to the feel of silicone but does not have the risk of silent ruptures and you won’t need  to do MRIs which can be very pricey. Funny thing is, I believe Dr Phan is the only board certified plastic surgeon who offers this type of implant on Oahu. I told myself I would not do the procedure if I met him for my consultation and didn’t feel confident in him and would just forget about getting them.

My consultation went great and Dr Phan made me feel comfortable and confident in his ability to give me the results I wanted. He emailed me the next day with my quote and I immediately scheduled my surgery. The IDEAL implants are about $2k more than the silicone ones but I didn’t care because I knew it was everything I wanted (No MRIs, less risks, no silent ruptures, and felt like silicone).

I am now 7 weeks post-op and LOVE my results. I am also impressed with how many post-op appointments he has me come in for to make sure I am healing well. I love visiting Amber and Grace too! This has been such a pleasant experience and I would highly recommend Dr Phan for anyone needing a board certified plastic surgeon!

Loving my Results! I Couldn’t Be Happier!

I experienced a ruptured saline implant (augmentation done over 15 years ago) and the surgeon I went to back then has long since retired. I’m so glad a friend referred me to Dr. Phan. The idea of going through another surgery to replace the implants had me feeling very anxious but Dr. Phan was so calm and caring during the consultation, I knew he was the doctor for me. He explained the procedure and what my options were, leaving me feeling so comfortable I booked the surgery that day. My recovery was quick and easy and I am so happy with the results! I would definitely recommend Dr. Phan, as well as his amazing staff, Grace , Amber and everyone else!

Wonderful Experience

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Bao Phan who performed a mini-facelift, fat grafting, and chemical peel. I was referred to him by a doctor that had Dr. Phan perform her procedures. During my initial consultation, I explained my concerns to Dr. Phan and he confidently and simply explained the procedure he would recommend. He clearly defined what my expectations should be and the entails and duration of the recovery process. I was 100% confident that I had found the right doctor. When I received the cost estimate, I was shocked. It was much lower than I expected. When it came to the day of the procedure, I was quite nervous and apprehensive. His office staff was professional and supportive, the facilities where amazing, the anesthesiologist was comforting, and Dr. Phan was focused and reassuring. At 5-1/2 months, my results are incredible. I cannot recommend Dr. Bao Phan more highly.
