This is my only cosmetic procedure I've had, but I'm glad it was with Dr. Chu. He answered every email with my never-ending questions. He was kind and always concerned with the best options for me. His staff is wonderful and filled with very thoughtful and intelligent people. I would recommend Dr.Chu to anyone because he really transformed my body and self-esteem.

Dr. Chu is the best plastic surgeon in Hawaii. He is patient, taking the time to explain the different types of implants and what may work best for the individual patient.

We originally began to look at him because of a recommendation from another plastic surgeon at Tripler. After looking through many surgeons online, primarily reviewing their before and after galleries, we chose Dr. Chu because his afters were consistently flattering to each body type, evenly placed and very natural-looking. During the consultation (which came after an unfortunately long wait- schedule early to avoid that), he was attentive, professional, knowledgeable, personable and honest. He spent plenty of time educating me about the procedure, the options, risks, and possibilities. I had done quite a bit of research prior to our visit, so most wasn't new to me. I was wowed by the fantastic imaging technology used in the office which allowed me to see a 3D depiction of various implant shapes and sizes pictured on my own body. I came away understanding why his appointments ran so late-- he is very attentive and thorough with his patients. He answered every question I had and in every visit since has also anticipated or even reminded me of questions I would have forgotten to ask (I'm terrible at asking questions). I found Dr. Chu to be every bit an artist- and very concerned about how well I take care of his work. In a cosmetic procedure, this is clearly a desirable quality. In post-op care, he falls on the side of caution, recommending a healthy recovery time with minimal upper body movement. While the consult and the pre-op visits lasted quite a while and started late, the follow-ups have been prompt, efficient and concise. He's been readily available to answer any concerns or questions I may have since as well, even providing us his personal cell number to reach him. Would I recommend him to my friends? I already have.

Co workers and friends who also went to him for breast augmentations. He is very knowledgable and made everything so comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Chu!

Friends. Was he voted Mr Popular? After talking with friends and co workers, I realize almost everyone went with Dr. Chu and recommend him. On his office walls are awards "best of..." etc. Myself, an ICU RN for 10 years made me a little paranoid, however his OCD to be perfect brushed all my hesitancy aside. And now 3 weeks post op I am the one referring friends and co workers. The circle of life.

Im glad I chose Dr. Chu. In my initial consultation, he used a machine to simulate what my resukts would be. He walked me through the entire process step by step. He takes measures with antibiotics and antiseptics than most surgeons and I was in very little pain due to the numbing medicine he put inside. I highly recommend.

Recommended by friends who were former patients of his. I've went to a couple consultations with other surgeons and two consultations with Dr. Chu over the course of 3 years before making my decision to choose him as my surgeon. I could tell that he was very experienced in this procedure from his thorough explanations of what to expect during the consultations. For every question that would come to my mind (even during the post-op appointments), he would answer it before I could even ask it! He was that knowledgeable and really put my mind at ease.

Word of Mouth and on-line referrals. Thank you, Dr. Chu! Several months ago, I went to 3 consultation appointments with 3 of the top plastic surgeons in Honolulu to discuss having breast augmentation. I was impressed with Dr. Chu's expertise and his personalized approach. I ultimately chose him for my surgery. If you are looking for a great outcome for fuller, natural looking breasts, Dr. Chu is the best.

Right from the consultation, Dr. Chu and his staff were very professional and friendly. They had put me at ease with their knowledge and care with going through the augmentation. Dr. Chu also was able to lift my breasts with out doing a breast lift but the augmentation only. He and his staff were able to address all my question and concerns. Dr. Chu came highly recommended and now I know why. I am absolutely satisfied with my breast augmentation with Dr. Chu and thank him for what he has done for me.

Recommended by friends and research on the internet. From the first consultation, I knew that we would be going with Dr. Chu. He is so knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions right from the start. Dr. Chu is always there to answer any questions one might have before and after the surgery, and always answers in detail. I have been so happy with my experience and would go back to Dr. Chu in a heartbeat and recommend him to anyone who is looking one of the best surgeons in Honolulu.

He's my father, and he did the absolute best work possible. I'm proud of my results and give my father recognition for his talent.

Before I even met Dr. Chu, I heard great things about him and his work from various people. When I did meet him, I instantly knew why people thought so highly of him. He educated me on everything I needed to know (Huge Pro), was honest in his dealings with me, and always remained ultra conservative to ensure that the end result came out as good as it could. No cons from my personal experience. The end product is great, and I am very happy with them.

I've researched him on the web and also gotten many recommendations. I had researched tons of doctors in the honolulu area and came upon Dr. Chu, not to mention a lot of recommendations from several of his patients, so I set a consultation with him. The day of my consultation I felt so sure of him I ended paying him on the spot, I had a list of questions I wanted to ask him and he answered all of them without me asking. He's a great doctor and will make you feel comfortable and at ease for the surgery, not to mention his staff is great! Great experience and wonderful results! I get compliments on his work all the time.

Looked at every doctor in Hawaii and for some reason I always seem to land back at Dr. Chu as my first choice. When I went into my consultation he explained everything so perfect and was so nice. He did not push me into getting a certain size or a certain implant. It was all up to me and he was there to listen and would give me what I want.

Very thorough surgeon and in my opinion, has an artistic eye. He also stresses that the patient is half responsible for the outcome of the procedure by following his recommendations.

Outstanding, Professional, Handsome, and so so nice I love Dr. Chu he tells it like it is and the imaging machine is an awesome way to see how you will look with your new breasts so life like... I wish I told him a larger size its a one time imaging photo. So make sure you tell them how many CC's you want before they snap the photo.

Dr Chu is an amazing surgeon. He takes time to answer all your questions and will provide you a result that looks amazing on you. The use of drains, pain pump and excellent technique deliver a smooth recovery time. I had zero complications, minimal scars and a perfect result. I can't recommend him enough.

First off Dr. Chu's staff is very professional and helpful. I really wanted a BA ASAP and they made it happen. The girls were so knowledgable and understanding with helpings me feel comfortable. As for Dr. Chu from the moment I went on his website up until I met him I didn't have any doubt in my mind that he was the one I was going to trust with my revision. If I had researched better I would've gone with him from the start but because of my lack of patience I messed up and went with a dr. That did a horrible job. I am just great full that dr chu was able to fix what my first ps messed up and make me feel good about myself again. Dr. Chu is very knowledgeable, honest, and a huge perfectionist. He makes sure you're happy with the results and will push and exceed beyond your expectations as he did for me. He gave me the exact look I wanted and I couldn't be anymore happier. Many people believe or may think given his popularity and skills he would cost a lot but Dr. Chu is very affordable and the go to Dr. I will highly recommend him to everyone I know that wants a BA he is a genuine professional at what he does. Thank you Dr. Chu and staff! I really appreciate everything you folk have done for me.

Overall! I am very satisfied with the service. Dr Chu is polite and very professional! He is really a very experienced surgeon. I was actually doubtful of going bigger for such a small person like me. I'm only 4 ft 11 ". Although I want to go bigger. I had silicone texture implant, 385 cc. It turned out they look good. Doesn't look too big. Dr. Chu listened and proceed with what I wanted and I'm happy with it. Still recovering. He has this 3d video thing and it simulates of how you would actually look like with the breast size you want. Therefore, helps you decide if you're going too big or small.
