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!

Happy Mom Bod

Any mother knows that having kids changes your body, especially when you’ve breastfed. I have 4 kids and breastfed all of them and after each child my breast changed more and more. 
I’ve considered breast augmentation after I tied my tubes which was after my 4th child but kept putting it off. Then I started to get really active again and started working out which as expected also affected my breast, so I decided it was time. 
I’ve spoken with some friends that got their breast done to get their opinions and some referrals but it was still difficult to decide mainly because their procedure was done more than 10 years ago and so much has changed since then. 
Dr. Phan was very informative and listened closely to what I was looking for. He didn’t try to convince me that he was the best dr for the job, instead he listened more to what I was looking for, he asked about my lifestyle and explained my options and made some suggestions that he thought was best for me since I’m very active. 
Dr. Phan and his team have been very supportive from the beginning and still 2 months after my procedure he assured me that I can call or text him if I have any concerns. 
Thank you to Dr. Phan and to his staff.

So pleased with the results of his work…

So, 6 months post-op, it is time that I share about my experience with Hawaii Plastic Surgery Institute. I have been through 4 pregnancies and I was looking to get a mommy makeover to repair some of the damage done to my body. I researched for many weeks and what first drew me to Dr. Phan was his website. All others were focussed on selling the dream. Dr Phan sold me on WHY he was qualified to provide the dream. He is board certified and his clinic is accredited by AAAASF which made me feel confident to meet. At the initial consultation Dr Phan was thorough and informative. He was extremely professional. He seemed to answer my questions before I even asked them. He later emailed with more information that we didn’t get to talk about in our short visit but he felt I needed. Amber, from his office staff, was so pleasant and helpful. She made it so much easier for me to get everything ready. The nurses in office were professional and they talked story with me to put my nerves at ease. The procedure went well. As I was waking up, I saw Dr. Phan cleaning the OR and gathering laundry. A job that would be beneath most doctors. It speaks to his character (among other things I witnessed). He went above and beyond to give support through my recovery. I am so pleased with the results of his work and the level of service I received. I highly recommend Dr. Phan and his staff for your surgical needs.

Wow! Wow! Wow!

My experience with Dr. Phan has been amazing. His surgical skills, office staff, and availability to answer any of my questions surpassed any of my expectations. All I can say is “Wow! Wow! Wow!” I wish that I had done this procedure years ago. If I could give Dr. Phan a 10 star review, I would.

Never Let Down! 🙂

All my experiences with Dr. Phan have been amazing. I have had a breast augmentation , Liposuction with a mini tummy tuck not to mention a chemical peel and Fillers in my tear troughs. My breast augmentation was done several years ago and he was very professional and my breasts look very natural, snd just recently I had liposuction around my mid waist and tummy with a mini tummy tuck. Dr. Phan and his staff went above and beyond , they made me feel very comfortable and the office is not intimidating at all. They are very down to earth and you feel like you’re going to see your friends. He did an amazing job and it was exactly what I wanted if not more. He’s decided to do a couple little extra things that weren’t planned but would make me look and feel better. During my tummy tuck I had a chemical peel which he said would be really nice for my skin and no lie… it looks like a babies bottom . That experience went so well I just came back to do my tear troughs which I’ve tried other places and it never turned out but I have heard good things about his fillers so I thought I would give him a try and I wasn’t let down again. I highly recommend Dr. Phan and his team for all of your beauty and health needs.

I had an amazing abdominoplasty with Dr Phan – I love the results!…

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Dr. Phan and his amazing staff recently when I went ahead with my Abdominoplasty procedure. After having 3 kids, my abdominal region had reduced elasticity of the skin and my core muscles separated (Diastasis Recti) making it hard to continue doing the sports I love and feel confident in a bikini!! After multiple treatments for abdominal skin tightening like Accent, ThermiSmooth Radio-Frequency, Venus as well as doing Physical Therapy for my Diastasis Recti, NOTHING seemed to work. I met with Dr Phan and he recommend a Tummy Tuck, Dr. Phan was patient with my process and listened to my concerns. His informative staff provided me with the support I needed to guide this decision. I was hesitant at first…. being athletic and a therapist myself, I prefer a natural looking physique. But I could not be more HAPPY with the results of this aesthetic artistry! Dr Phan did EXACTLY what I wanted, a natural looking tummy tuck, not to tight, not to loose, PERFECT! If you think he is not listening to you, He IS 🙂 And you need to trust the process, he is such an amazing surgeon, a true artist. I once again have strength in my center and regained confidence in my appearance. The Office is super clean and the OR view of Honolulu is spectacular. His office manager/coordinator Amber is so delightful to work with, super sweet and so patient. The best part of it all is that now I can surf and feel strong with my new abs! It’s amazing to finally reach my fitness goal, plus I can be in a bikini 😉 Thank you so much Dr Phan, you’re the BEST!
