I have always been self-conscious about having a concave chest, and after breastfeeding two children, I could hardly fill out most bikini tops. I turned 40 this year, and instead of going on a vacation or having a big celebration, I decided to do something just for me. Living on Maui, my options here are pretty limited. Being this was a major life decision, I conducted a lot of research and pretty much had my mind made up as to what type of implants, incision, and placement I thought would best benefit my lifestyle and body type. Several women I know have gone to a doctor here on Maui who has been practicing for decades. After my consultation with our veteran Maui plastic surgeon, I left feeling uneasy for several reasons. I had an appointment scheduled with Dr. Phan the same day and left feeling much better about my decision. Dr. Phan and I were on the same page about everything. He had all the right answers, understood my concerns, and I could tell he was extremely passionate about his work. Having the procedure in Oahu was appealing to me. I felt like I needed some time to myself to recover, without having to worry about being a mom and wife. Luckily, my mom lives in Oahu and she was able to help take care of me. My surgery was scheduled on Friday morning and I went back home to Maui on Sunday afternoon. Everything went smoothly and I was feeling great Saturday morning for my post-op appointment. My mom and I were able to spend some quality time together and I wasn’t laid up in bed at all. Dr. Phan and his crew are second to none. From pre-op to post-op, they really take care of you. The anesthesiologist helped me feel reassured and made me feel extremely comfortable. I had no side effects when I woke up. No nausea or anything. I was actually really hungry and wanted to eat. The facility is immaculate and located on the top floor of the building. The operating room is stunning with breathtaking views of the city. I am happy I decided to choose Dr. Phan for this procedure and would absolutely recommend him to anyone considering breast augmentation.
