Breast Lipoaugmentation-
the natural alternative to implant breast augmentation

Breast Lipoaugmentation: The First Breast Augmentation with Autologous Fat in Hawaii!

Dr. Bao Phan is proud to announce that on Aug. 17, 2011 he performed Hawaii’s first breast augmentation procedure that uses the patient’s own fat, a procedure they are calling Breast Lipoaugmentation. The procedure was performed under local anesthesia in the office (IV sedation in our accredited OR is recommended for larger volume transfers) and involved suctioning the patient’s own fat in her thighs and “muffin tops” where she had excess unwanted fat, concentrating and purifying the fat and injecting it in her breast tissue. The results? Immediate natural enhancement of the breast with improved shape and volume with softer texture and less discomfort, swelling and recovery than traditional breast augmentation with implants. As an added benefit, the patient was able to get rid of unwanted fat of her saddle bags and muffin tops that had always bothered her.

Please visit our Photo Gallery and video link below to see her amazing results as well as the results of other happy patients.

Why just suck out fat and throw it away when you can put it to good use to enhance your breasts? Breast Lipoaugmentation is a more natural alternative for patients who do not wish to undergo traditional breast augmentation with implants.

ULTHERAPY ultrasound skin lifting and tightening

Dr. Bao Phan and Dr. Todd Mirzai were the first in Hawaii to offer the new non-surgical Ultherapy™ procedure for the tightening and lifting of loose, laxed skin.  Cleared by the FDA in September 2009, it utilizes medical ultrasound – renowned for its gentleness and safety – in a completely non-invasive 30- 60 minute procedure.   We place an ultrasound wand on top of your skin to send sound waves below the surface, causing tissue to contract and new collagen to form over time.  There is no downtime with Ultherapy, and you can return to normal activities immediately. We now have the ability to use ultrasound imaging to SEE the layers of tissue we want to treat below the surface of the skin, and then focus the same ultrasound energy to TREAT just the targeted tissue.  This allows us to be much more precise in how we treat your skin.  Because this is accomplished without disrupting the epidermis, or top layer of skin, patients experience no downtime.  Good clinical results can be seen with just one treatment, but excessive skin laxity may require additional treatments.  This entirely new type of non- surgical skin tightening can produce some immediate skin firming and toning right after the treatment, but the full lifting and tightening effect will build gradually over 2-3 months.  Although Ultherapy will not produce the same dramatic rejuvenation (or have the same longevity) as a facelift or browlift, when combined with tissue fillers, Botox and/ or skin resurfacing procedures, Ultherapy can truly offer a non- surgical solution to those who are looking for something more gradual and natural- looking, with less discomfort and no down- time with less risks- a true “Lunch time facelift.”


Below are some of the results other patients from around the world have achieved with Ultherapy.  Please keep in mind that all individuals are unique so results will vary and may not be typical.

KHON News- the “Lunchtime Facelift”





SLIMLIPO laser- assisted body sculpting

In keeping our commitment to offer our patients the latest advancements in minimally invasive facial, breast and body rejuvenation, we are very proud to be offering the revolutionary laser body sculpting procedure that’s all the rage in Hollywood and Beverly Hills with the rock stars and A- list celebrities– only you can get it right here in Hawaii.

This revolutionary device uses a laser to help melt the fat in those unwanted areas to allow for easier removal.  It also helps to tighten the overlying skin which traditional liposuction techniques have not been very effective at doing.  Because it does most of the work for you, removing it is much easier and faster allowing it to be done without general anesthesia– literally during your “lunch time” or on the weekend, to have you ready to go back to work sooner.  The SlimLipo (Selective Laser Induced Melting) system allows you to return to work (or play) much quicker and with less pain, bruising and swelling than than standard liposuction techniques.  The SlimLipo laser- assisted liposuction system is unique in that it works with 2 separate wavelengths– one to specifically target fat cells and one to help tighten skin.  And because the procedure can be done in the office and without general anesthesia, it can be much less expensive.  So whether you have that double chin, “muffin top,” bat wings, belly “pooch” or saddle bags you’ve always wanted to get rid of, you now have a convenient and effective solution right here at home.  Please call any of our office locations to book your appointment for consultation with our plastic surgeons today.

     “Eve’s” Story- “I look like I just lost 10lbs!”
SlimLipo of abdomen, hips and flanks
BEFORE AFTER (2days)  AFTER (12 days)
   BEFORE AFTER (2days) AFTER (12 Days)

“Eve” is a patient in her 20’s who desired body sculpting to help her lose some areas of fat deposits of her abdomen and “muffin tops” that were resistant to diet and exercise.  She also wanted some added skin tightening.  She needed to get back to work quickly so she could not afford lengthy downtime and chose SlimLipo laser assisted body sculpting.

She underwent a 1.5 hour SlimLipo procedure in the office with oral sedatives and analgesics with local anesthesia to treat her abdomen, hips and flanks.  She rested the evening after her surgery but felt energized enough the next day to attend a party (wearing her compression garments of course).  The after photos were taken 2 days after her procedure.  She was very happy to see that there was already visible improvement in just 2 days, no bruising with minimal discomfort and swelling afterwards.  Her amazed husband said she looked like she had just suddenly lost 10 lbs.  She was happy to return to work a few days.

“Trish’s” Story- Back to Work the Next Day


SlimLipo of abdomen, hips, outer and inner thighs

 BEFORE    AFTER (2weeks)   BEFORE  AFTER (2 weeks)


“Trish” is in her 20’s, and after having a child she put on a lot of weight in her hips, abdomen and outer and inner thighs that she just could not get rid of with dieting and exercise.  She really wanted to have her old toned figure back as her hips and thighs would not allow her to fit in any of the clothes she wanted to wear.  She also yearned to have a firmer stomach and to be able to see daylight again between her thighs.  But as a single working mother, she just could not afford to take any time off work.

She chose to have the SlimLipo procedure.  After undergoing 3 hours of fat melting and skin tightening in the office, she was able to back to work the following day.  The results? – “Totally worth it!”
