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.

Very happy with the results

I had a neck lift and chemical peel and am very happy with the results.
I literally took decades thinking about it and finally deciding to have it done. Of course now, I wish I had done the neck lift at least 10 years sooner. I was raised not to be vain or spend money on frivolities such as face lifts. I primarily heard this when my paternal aunt had the same procedure 45 years ago. Well, guess what, I got the family neck and always felt self conscious about it. I hated pictures. I refused to do FaceTime. I have come to the conclusion that if you feel like you need it, you probably do. Don’t wait, just get it done. Now, I can’t wait to FaceTime. I am wearing necklaces to draw people’s eye to my beautiful neck.

I scheduled a consult because of the great reviews. I chose Dr Phan because he has his own accredited surgical suite. I did not want to go to a hospital or general use same day surgery because a big risk is infections from other patients. His obvious attention to detail gave me confidence to book the procedure. I also liked that there is a single packaged price without separate charges for the surgical suite or anesthesiologist. His staff is wonderful and his follow-up is excellent.

Absolute best surgeon in Hawaii!

Dr. Phan is the absolute best surgeon in Hawaii!  It’s worth traveling off Island to have THE BEST!  Intelligent, perfectionist, kind hearted, top notch.  Don’t bother looking elsewhere when it comes to your body and health, you deserve the best.

I look and feel better than I expected!

After years of fertility treatments with hormones leading to weight gains and losses and loose skin as well as newly developed discomfort from breast implants I got years ago, I decided to invest in myself. I had my implants removed and a tummy tuck with liposuction. I choose Dr. Phan because he was not only the highest-rated but because his demeanor and level of professionalism in answering all of my questions and concerns. I made my appointments and decision to work with Dr. Phan the first time I met with him. There was no pressure, no unrealistic expectations and everything was explained in a manner I could understand. He was kind and respectful and his staff reflected his professionalism. He encouraged me to look to his website and Instagram for examples of his work (which I did and was very inspired by). Pre-op I received all documentation in a timely manner. I was able to call or email with any questions and I received prompt or immediate responses. The day of, Dr. Phan dedicated his day to my procedure so I was not worried he would try to rush to fit in more patients after me. During the weeks of post-op, Dr. Phan was very gentle during my post-op exams and never rushed thru appointments or disregarded my concerns no matter how minute. I am now 5 weeks post op and I am so happy with my results. I have breasts that look great and are symmetrical (which was a concern of mine). I have a flat tummy and minimal scar line. I am able to walk, run, drive, eat and drink. I am enjoying the results of my investment. I look and feel better than I expected! I am so, so happy I chose Dr. Phan. There’s no one else I would recommend for incredible results thru cosmetic surgery.

Excellent Care and Outcome

It has been two weeks since my surgery.
I am a 68 year old female (Haole – born and raised in Hawaii) in what I think would be considered very good physical shape. I exercise, eat a varied diet, drink in moderation and do my best to take good care of myself. My mother will enjoy her 100 birthday later this month, so I am determined to be in good shape since I believe longevity is in my genes!
I had a face lift 10 years ago with a doctor in San Francisco which I was extremely pleased with, but the last ten years have taken their toll on my face and skin, so I was inspired to find a doctor to help me revitalize my looks and give me that refreshed, awake, alert look once again. Since the doctor I had seen in SF had long since retired, I started my search. Dr. Phan’s name kept coming up! I talked to several doctors (Honolulu & SF) and found my consultation with Dr. Phan to be the most thorough and attentive to my desires while making his professional suggestions for the outcome I was seeking to be the best choice for me. Dr. Phan took the time to meet with me and my husband, to reassure my husband that his approach would be exactly what I (we) wanted (simply to age gracefully!) and to look like myself!!!, just refreshed.
Dr. Phan uses TIVA anesthesia. He is committed to using the best method and technicians available.
Dr. Phan and Amber were available to answer any question I had and checked on my progress by phone, email and text. I truly feel well cared for. My husband is beyond impressed!
Best of all, I love the work that Dr. Phan and his team did for me. Today marks two weeks since my surgery and moments ago I had a long time business associate ask me if I had just returned from vacation, since I looks so good.
I highly recommend Dr. Phan to anyone considering any type of Plastic Surgery!!

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!
