5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants

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

Dr. Chu was the most thorough doctor I've ever met. Consultation is free of charge, and he really took his time explaining all your options for breast augmentation. He presents a powerful powerpoint presentation with many pictures and statistics. Then, he lets you touch all the different type of implants, and what the pros and cons of each implant entails. Then, you pick your surgery date. I...

From Flat to Full – Honolulu, HI

Its been three weeks since the procedure and i feel great! While the pain and tightness of stretched skin is real, my clothes fit so much better. I went from a AA to almost a C which is enough for me since i dont strip for a living. After sacraficing to put three children through school it was time to do something for myself. If you feel like you need to do something for yourself, i say...

Even Better Than Expected! - Honolulu, HI

Prior to my breast aug, my husband and I scoured the internet for pictures of what we considered to be the ideal breast aug. We looked for pictures that compared well to my pre-op body, shape and size. We compiled them and showed them to Dr. Chu to give him an idea of what we were looking for. Today, six weeks post-op, we went back to our list to compare- and mine currently beat them all out...

Love the Results! - Honolulu, HI

Had my breast augmentation done by Dr. Chu and everything came out great. The healing process was just as he described but I actually didn't even use the pain medication (Vicodin) after the 2nd day. I'm 4'11'' and 90lbs, pre op I was a B cup... got 350cc implants. Now I am a D cup but it looks so natural. I was scared about being put to sleep but he assured me that everything would be fine.

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

I've always wanted larger breasts (ever since I reached puberty and realized I didn't have any), but didn't seriously consider breast implant surgery until I was about 22. Breast augmentation used to seem too invasive to me, but I had met a few other women who had got it done and reassured me that it wasn't as big of a deal as I thought. I went to consultations with a few different surgeons...

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

I had my breast implant surgery in December 2012. My breasts and overall figure look even better that I had hoped! My cup size is perfect and my scars are so small, you can hardly tell I had surgery.

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

The surgery went very well...so well that I did not take any pain killers, except for extra strength tylenol. I did everything that Dr. Chu asked us to before and after the surgery and my breasts are perfect. I am a professional model and the breast augmentation has been very beneficial. I get compliments on them all of the time and they are so soft that it would be hard to tell that I have...
