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 had a breast lift (mastopexy) with Dr. Phan. I finally decided to go under the knife and so so happy I did! I think and rethink absolutely anything that I do a million times. I was so anxious to have just anyone do this procedure. I had been putting it off for awhile and I knew I wanted to have some form of augmentation to my breasts but was busy with kids and work and everything else that goes along with living a busy life. A little history – I always felt like my breasts were too large, I was a 34 double D in high school and after 4 pregnancies and breastfeeding and pumping for almost 4 years (I breast fed each baby exclusively for a little over a year), my breasts looked like two deflated stretched out bags. I’m also very athletic – I love running and hiking and working out and large breasts just get in the way! My breasts were really in a sad state! I swear they tripled in size every time I got pregnant! I wasn’t sure if I wanted implants along with a lift. I needed some expert advice. I started to look for and schedule different consults. I live in Hawaii and was not happy with the local surgeon on my Island that did the procedure I was looking for. He had terrible reviews, so I started searching elsewhere in Hawaii and found Dr. Phan in Oahu. He had excellent reviews and very happy patients. He also did consults on my Island. I made an appointment and met with him. I immediately knew he was an excellent Doctor after first meeting him. He was kind and intelligent. I could see his confidence and knowledge was top notch. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and explained to me that with a breast lift, he felt I wouldn’t need implants, especially if I was a runner. He felt I would have more than enough breast tissue to be happy with my post lift size. He never pushed any procedure on me and left the decision making totally up to me. He made sure all my questions were answered and concerns addressed. I met with him a few times before finally deciding to take the plunge. He’s incredible! And believe it or not, the whole process of traveling off Island to Oahu and having the procedure done and staying at a hotel post-op went incredibly smooth. We made it into a little staycation for the kids and they loved it. I had minimal to zero post-op pain, and I am healing well. I’m now about 3 months post op and I feel like I have my high school breasts back! I can’t begin to tell you how much of a confidence boost this has been and how happy I am! It really has changed my confidence level and how I feel about myself. I’m also so glad that I decided to not have implants placed, I love the natural breast, and all my clothing and cute bras fit me perfectly now. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr. Phan for your excellent work and for not pushing me to have implants! Thank you for responding to every concern so quickly and kindly. Hawaii is so incredibly lucky to have a skilled and kind surgeon like you. If you are reading this and looking for the best surgeon for you, and have anxiety or fear of surgery, than Dr. Phan is the one for you! You won’t regret it!

I am a 48 year old female, who had 21 year old implants. The last few years I noticed my right breast starting to sag and become disproportion. I knew it was time to replace them. After extensive research, my husband and I made a appointment with Dr. Phan. He did a exam and informed me I had Capular Contraction due to scar tissue. I would also need a Bilateral mastopexies ( breast lift). We decided to perform the surgery in two stages. The first surgery Dr. Phan took the old implants that were above the muscle out. He had to create new pockets to support the new implants and removed scare tissue.
The 2nd surgery was my breast lift. My skin is thin which made the surgery a little complicated for Dr. Phan. It’s been 2 months since my surgery and my breast look amazing.
I also want to mention Dr. Phan’s staff. They are very professional and make you feel comfortable from the time you arrive until you leave. Dr. Phan is very good at following up with you during your recovery.
I highly recommend Dr. Phan if you are considering plastic surgery or any kind of maintenance to your body or face.

Dr. Phan is the BEST!!!

Dr. Phan is the BEST!!! He doesn’t treat you as if you were just the next person in line he gets money from. He cares about his patients. You can tell he loves his job and is a perfectionist. He takes the time to explain everything down to the smallest detail so that you feel comfortable with your decision. The rest of the staff there are fantastic as well. You won’t regret going there.

“Dr. Phan is the best!”

After years of contemplation I finally decided to get a blepharoplasty and breast augmentation. When I decided to get both surgeries done, I did an extensive research online for doctors with a good reputation. Dr. Phan had the best reviews so I emailed them and Amber called me back right away to set up an appointment. They are always willing to work around your schedule which is convenient. Amber is kind and welcoming and makes you feel at ease. Dr. Phan is professional and knowledgable; I was more worried about the blepharoplasty since I’ve heard horror stories over the years but I felt comfortable in Dr. Phan’s hands. I had a medical emergency on the day of my surgeries and had to cancel at the last possible minute. I felt awful about it but Dr. Phan and Amber were very forgiving and empathetic. They worked around my medical problems and squeezed me into their schedule when I was ready. A few weeks later my eyes look wonderful! I wish I had the blepharoplasty done years ago! My breast augmentation went very well and look amazing as well! For anybody who is hesitant about getting any cosmetic surgery done, call and get a consultation. You will walk out more excited than reluctant about it.
