5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants

From Bs to Ds with Dr. Benjamin Chu - Honolulu, Hi

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.

From Flat to Full – Honolulu, HI

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.

Even Better Than Expected! - Honolulu, HI

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.

Love the Results! - Honolulu, HI

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!

Thank God for Referrals -Honolulu, HI

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.

I was in very little pain - Great Experience - Honolulu, HI

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.

About 5 Weeks Post-op & Happy with my Results! - Honolulu, HI

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.

Thank You, Dr. Chu! You Did a Great Job! - Honolulu, HI

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.

I am absolutely satisfied. - Breast Augmentation - Honolulu, HI

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.

Absolutely Amazing! - Honolulu, HI

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.
