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 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!

Dr. Phan Changed my Life

Dr. Phan changed my life. I am a 52-year old empty nester who wants to enjoy the second stage of life and look good doing it; Dr. Phan has made that possible. Before my procedures, both my face and neck both were terribly wrinkled with significant sun damage. My breasts were small and starting to sag despite my best efforts to work out regularly.

Dr. Phan gave me a face lift, a neck lift, a chemical peel, a breast lift and breast augmentation. The breast aug was first and two weeks later, he did my face. During both surgeries Dr. Phan was professional, knowledgeable and realistic with his expectations on how I would look afterwards. He was honest about my limitations because I have very thin skin and he cautioned against getting breasts that were too big as well as making me aware of his abilities to eliminate my facial wrinkles.

I say this because he never promised a rose garden but he sure delivered one. I did do a bit of shopping before deciding on Dr. Phan and I can tell anyone that is searching for their plastic surgeon to skip the hunt and just get an appointment with Dr. Phan. You will not be sorry, and I should know because he performed 2 of the 3 procedures he offers on me, and I have never been happier.

Great Surgeon

While searching for where to get my rhinoplasty done, I happened to find Dr. Phan. I looked at the photos he had on his website and read the different reviews, and decided to go in for a consultation. After speaking with him, I set up my appointment. I’m glad that I did, because the results are amazing! My nose looks exactly the way I wanted it to. Dr. Phan is a great surgeon who has helped me gain my confidence and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to get a rhinoplasty, or any other type of cosmetic procedure.

Dr. Phan is Amazing!

After having & breastfeeding 3 kids, my boobs looked like 2 popped balloons. So about 15 years ago, I went to a (now retired) surgeon in Honolulu and. He recommended larger implants than I wanted so I did it! Well I pretty much regretted it ever since. Although they looked not bad, it wasn’t me so I’ve wanted them out for a while. I started doing some major research and Dr. Phan stood out. My consult went well and he was pretty straightforward with me. He recommended a lift and to replace my implants or I would be pretty flat. After talking over with hubby, we decided to do explant/lift. Surgery/recovery went pretty smoothly and my drains came out the next day! I did get an infection but Dr. Phan gave me meds immediately. I went in several times pre and post op and Amber and Holly were very sweet and patient with me even though I asked a million questions. I’m almost 4 months post op and I feel great, like 20 years younger! I highly recommend Dr. Phan, he is very talented and professional.

The Results are Outstanding.

After having 4 children I wanted to get my body back, after years of exercise and dieting I was only able to get my body so far, I still had all this extra skin that wrinkled and was covered with stretch marks. I contemplated having a tummy tuck for a while but was nervous. After my consultation with Dr. Phan walking through the whole procedure with me, answering all my questions, and listening to what I wanted my end goal to be I knew this was the right option and was very excited. Dr. Phan and his team were amazing to work with, they were all so kind, helpful and professional I knew I was getting the best plastic surgeon. I could not be more pleased with the results of the surgery. My stomach is absolutely flat, it was beyond what I could imagine. Dr. Phan was so helpful with the recovery and making sure everything went smoothly. If you are contemplating getting a tummy tuck I highly recommend getting one with Dr. Phan the results are outstanding.
