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.

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.

I had been considering both a breast augmentation and an endoscopic brow lift for some time. After my consultation with Dr Phan, I felt so comfortable moving forward with both procedures. He listened to my concerns and goals and weighed in with his expertise. I trusted him and could not be happier. my results are very natural and perfectly suit my petite stature. His staff, both in the office and the surgery center are amazing! They are friendly, accommodating and very responsive to phone calls and emails. I felt I had excellent service and care from start to finish. A+

I had a wonderful ‘mommy makeover’ experience with Hawaii Plastic Surgery Institute. Dr. Phan is an excellent surgeon and has a very artistic eye. During my consultation he listened to my goals and explained in detail the best options for me. Going into the surgery I was confident in his ability and the plan we came up with to achieve my goals. His staff was very helpful and kind. They ensured I had a smooth prep, surgery and follow-up. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Phan and his team to anyone. 

I am 40yrs old and very happy with my results thus far. I got a breast lift, liposuction, fat transfer to the breast. I am almost 4 weeks in. I was back at my office job 4 days later.

Dr. Phan staff are so nice and definitely left me with the feeling I was in good hands before I went under. The COVID swab they handled right in the office, results loaded automatically on app. So easy, organized and bathroom, office, surgery room, felt very clean.

Super happy with the results thus far. Recovery has been great. I say it’s like when you have a hard workout and the next morning achy pain (lipo areas). But actual boob areas have been very little pain if any. Requires some wound care but no pain.

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Phan and his team, from the first consultation throughout pre-op appointments, surgery, and post-op appointments. Dr. Phan is a brilliant surgeon, he is passionate, caring with the most experience and knowledge. I am now 3 months post-op after having a gummy bear implant with a nipple lift and I cannot express how happy I am with the result!! I am someone who would never think I’d get any kind of cosmetic surgery done. But, due to breastfeeding 3 babies and being a runner, I was left pretty much flat chested. So, I decided to perfect my body by bringing back my breast. My body is now perfect thanks to Dr. Phan’s recommendation of proceeding with the gummy bear implant. My breasts are looking natural, fells like my very own and I cannot stop staring at them in the mirror every day. 😊 The surgery took about 3 hours, recovery was fast for me. I was able to fly back to Maui 3 days after the surgery. Dr. Phan continued to exceed my expectations during the recovery period as well. I was able to see him on Maui for all my post op appointments, which made it very easy for me living on Maui. He also was available beyond the office visits and very responsive when it came to having question and concerns. I highly recommend him to everyone who is looking for nothing less but the best when it comes to breast implants.

Dr. Phan did an excellent job with my cosmetic surgery. My results look very natural and gave me a new sense of confidence. It was very helpful to have the option to book consultations and check ups on outer islands. I would definitely recommend Dr. Phan to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.

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.

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 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… 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!!!
