Breast augmentation with Dr. Chu, March 31, 2009, 10:02 pm
Reviewer: butterflysky67

After reading the other reviews I disagree with the negative ones. Dr.Chu was friendly so were his staff. Maybe what you put out there from yourself he reflects back? Anyways he was informative and listened to me and my concerns and wishes. I personally wanted to go big and he warned me of the risks of going so big with a first ba but he listened and went with the size I wanted and he never forced any profile on me he bases it on your bwd(how wide your chest is)and what will suit your body frame best. I am happy with my results and my breasts are beautiful he makes his ba's round w/great cleavage wich is what I wanted. He never tried to persuade me on size or "to go big" and yes he did'nt do sizers because sizers to me actually wont get you what you want it's a look you want and everyones body's are different and 400cc may look one way on one person but not that way on another kwim?, you should base it on pictures and he will try to get you to that size wich is what I did. And I saw him at my second appointment to remove my drains and he called me as well that nite of surgery to check in on me. I know a couple of girls who went to him for a breast augmentation and they are very happy with their results and so am I. I would definently recommend him to others and if I want or need any other cosmetic procedure I will be going back to him in the future!:)

MIXED REVIEW, January 27, 2008, 10:36 pm
Reviewer: hawaiian

I did a lot of research in Oahu on plastic surgeons, particularly focusing on breast augmentation. I work in an industry where many of my co-workers have had this procedure done-- many of them have gone to Dr. Chu, and I was mainly influenced by their physical results. (His work is nice-- very natural looking... well, for those who didn't overdo it anyway). However, when I consulted with Dr. Chu, I felt like he was too busy to listen to what I truly wanted, and I felt as if he rushed me into a decision. My decision was made strictly by pictures. He never offered sizers or anything. He also has a reputation for trying to convince you to "go bigger." I'm glad I didn't listen to him. I was adament about my decision on size and he did respect that. He never shook my hand, said thank you, or made me feel like he cared about me as a person. In fact, I felt more like patient #12301. I have had the procedure done and have been to two post-op appointments. I have yet to actually see him since he put the IV in my hand. I've only seen his nurse (whom is very professional). After the procedure, he never came in to see how I was doing. However, he did personally call me that night, and I was well pleased with that. Dr. Chu is very knowledgeable, and he does inform his patients with everything they need to know regarding pre-op, risks, post-op, etc. He is very concerned about the patient being 50% responsible for how the results end up (how you choose to recover with no/minimal movement). The office smells a little funky, almost moldy. But the exam room is warm, which is nice. The procedure is done right in the office, but luckily, right across from Queen's Hospital-- a big plus, in my opinion, in the unlikely event of something going wrong. His incision is made right under the nipple-- little or no scarring-- big plus!! He gave a card informing me of the size of the implant and the CC's on each side. He did adjust them according to his belief of my assymetrical breasts. I trusted him with that-- he's been doing this a long time. The difference is only 25CCs, so not a huge one. It's too early to know my results, but so far, I am pleased with the look of them. I had little discomfort, even though I opted not to take the pain pump. The only thing that bothered me were the drains coming out of my armpits for five days. That was very irritating. Dr. Chu was also voted the best of the best in 2007 by the people of Hawaii. He specializes in correcting Asian eyelids, but I would recommend him for breast augmentation as well. Dr. Chu is very professional, but not very personal.

very fake looking breasts, September 8, 2007, 5:52 am
Reviewer: skyhi

I went to this doctor highly recommended by my co-worker, who also had ba done by dr. chu. He insisted on high-profile although I asked for moderate profile implants. He also over filled 380 implant to 425 on one side of my breast, even though my natural breasts size were identical. I ended up with very hard and uneven looking breasts. when I complained about the uneven size, he was very defensive and insisted he had filled 380 on both sides. I knew he was lying because, his nurse had already told me that dr. chu overfilled my left implant to 425.
I have few friends and co-workers who had procedures done by him. He seems to be excellent on facial procedures, but his skills on breast augmentation are higly questionable. I havn't met anyone who was satisfied after having ba by him.

dr 90210 of hawaii, June 28, 2006, 12:05 am
Reviewer: jojaggers57

dr. chu had an extensive amount of information and i felt as if he really care for my well being. he made sure that my husband came home postop knowing exactly how to take care of me and the exact expectations pre and post op. he took his time with us and went thru everything from step 1 to step 100. he's the most knowledgable and informative. he's a really caring ps and we are his canvas and he's proud of his artwork. i'm going back to him to have my tummy tuck done on 09/07/06 and totally feel like i'm in the best care in the world. i've referred over about 4 gals to him and they all look great.
