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 can’t tell you how happy I am

I read every Yelp review on local plastic surgeons before I decided to see Dr. Phan.  The Yelp reviewers did not steer me wrong.  I am 70 years old and hated the way my neck looked.  I hated having my picture taken, I hated looking in the mirror, zoom meetings. I know people go to plastic surgeons when they are much younger, but I was ok with my looks until a few years ago.  

From the beginning I was thoroughly impressed.  His clinic is so spotless I swear you could eat off the floor.  I told him I wanted a neck lift and was also not happy about the dark circles under my eyes.  He explained the procedures thoroughly and told me that he was in favor of doing less invasive procedures when possible,which meant that he would recommend injecting fat under my eyes instead of doing surgery.  

So, it has been 6 weeks since I had my neck lift, and the fat injections and a chemical peel and I love the results.  At first I wasn’t sure…my face looked so different because of the swelling and bruising that happens after surgery, and I thought I would just have to get used to having a face that didn’t look like me, but eventually, I healed and now look like I used to look many years ago. I am so happy to have a new neck…a nice jawline with no jowls.  And I don’t have to spend my money on concealers that never really worked very well for my under eye circles.  I can’t tell you how happy I am that I went to see Dr. Phan.

Also, I would like to add that he is great about doing follow up visits.  You really feel like you are getting professional care from the consult until the healing is complete.

Expectations Far EXCEEDED

Dr. Phan is Absolutely brilliant!! I honestly can’t say enough about how well my procedure went. Dr.Phan far exceeded all of my expectations in care and skill. I was very apprehensive about removing my 18yr old implants. I researched extensively before committing to a doctor and I am so so happy I went to Dr. Phan! I never dreamt the result would be this good. Choosing a great surgeon is key!! THANK YOU DR PHAN 🙂 !!

Dr Phan is the Best !

Dr. Phan is seriously the best and has truly exceeded all my expectations I had going into getting a breast augmentation. I had been wanting to get the procedure done for a while, but had been holding off because I was very nervous about the actual surgery (never been under), the risks of the procedure, as well as choosing a surgeon that would give me the results I envisioned. I had many questions and concerns to bring up during our consult., and Dr took his time to listen and answer every single one of them. He was also very up front and honest with me about making sure I understood the risks associated with a BA , which I really appreciated. I explained that I was looking for a very natural result, I didn’t want to look overdone or exaggerated in any way. I never felt like the consult. was rushed, and could really tell he cares about catering to his patients goals, as well as takes a great pride in his work. 
When It was time for me to actually fly to Oahu and get the procedure done, I was incredibly nervous…..but after meeting with him the day before and having a tour of his beautiful office in the Hale Pawa’a building, it made me feel rest assured I was in very good hands. We were in between deciding on two implant sizes, and Dr told me he would be able to make the call on which size when I was under, so this made me nervous because I couldn’t make the decision for myself, it was up to him…….The morning of when I arrived to get ready for surgery, I was definitely freaking out on the inside…..my nurse who would be taking care of me was very nice and so was the anesthesiologist. 
The procedure took about 2 1/2 hours, and when I was back up, Dr. told me he ended up going with the slightly bigger size because he thought it looked best. At the time I was a little freaked out when he told me this, because like I said I didn’t want to be too big or fake-looking at all……..
Now I am almost 9 weeks post-op and I cannot express how happy I am he made the decision he did!!! The implant size he chose is the PERFECT size that is totally proportionate to my figure. They aren’t even fully settled yet, but everyone I know tells me they look beautifully natural and that if they didn’t know me personally, they would have never of thought I had boob job!!! I am so pleased with my results so far and feel so much more confident in my body 🙂 
I am so impressed with Dr Phan……he is incredibly talented and has an amazing aesthetic eye for what he does! He has met and exceeded all my expectations. I was definitely scared before the surgery and after during recovery, but he was very reassuring and made me feel comfortable throughout the process. If I ever needed anything I could text or call him directly and he got back to me very shortly to answer my questions…..
If your looking for a surgeon you can trust to really listen to your goals and help you achieve them, go see Dr Phan!!!

Amazing Experience

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Phan and his assistant Amber. I had a breast implant removal with total capsulation and a breast lift. I am so happy I did the procedure. I live in Maui, and I went to Oahu for my surgery. I stayed at the Alamona hotel it was just a few minute Uber from the surgery center. After the surgery I went back to sleep. I woke up the next morning with very little pain. I just had the drains which I hid with a long sleeve shirt. I even felt like going to breakfast. I took Tylenol in the day and only one pain pill for 2 nights. After the 3rd day I just took Tylenol. I was so happy with my procedure. It’s been 10months since my surgery and my scars are fading. The surgery also helped the lines on my declotte. Dr. Phan skills are incredible. I would trust him with any work that I need to have done. He is not only an surgeon, but also an artist.
