Plastic surgery patients from Honolulu to Maui and throughout Hawaii praise board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Shim Ching for his surgical skills, his professionalism, and his easy-going nature. He is grateful for the responses, and understands that satisfied patients are the foundation of his practice.

If you want to learn more about Dr. Ching, request a consultation to meet with him personally to discuss your cosmetic goals. You can also call our office at (808) 585-8855 to schedule an appointment. Please keep in mind that each patient is unique and results may not occur for all patients.


“Dear Dr. Ching,
For some time now I have wanted to sit down and write you a letter of thanks for your wonderful care-but as often the case, the urgent things in life sometimes over take the important. Well, today is finally the day!

I suppose the fact that I still think about how grateful I am for your care, even after four months, means you have stuck in my mind.

As must be the case with most traumatic events-they heighten your awareness to certain things: how people responded to you; how they treated you; the type of care you received both on a professional and personal level; and all the doctors, nurses’ display; and the small intangibles that make you feel you’re in good hands. After a chaotic experience in the past, your calm manner, your careful examination of my hand and your patient and clear responses to my many questions and concerns set my mind at ease. As I am sure you know, to cut a hand as badly as I did and to have the fear that of losing functionality, I needed hope, yes-and gentle firm truth telling. You did all these and I am grateful, and I know that L (my wife) felt the same way about your interactions with you after the surgery.

Your care after the surgery was equally helpful and reassuring. Again, the many questions I asked, some over and over again, were taken seriously and patiently answered. Your gentle, yet professional, manner in examining the wound and dressing reassured me all hope was not lost. And the weekly office visits were always reassuring. You took time to listen to me and hear how things were going with my recovery, and were even understanding about our stress with moving across the country.

Finally, you were even very helpful in finding a hand surgeon on the East Coast. I should tell you, when I showed my hand to the surgeon out here he was very impressed with your work, and he continues to comment on the good start you gave me, down the road to recovery. However, while I like my Doctor out here, I found myself more than once wishing I was still under your care.

I cannot tell you how grateful I am for all your excellent care.

Both my wife and I wish you all the best in your career, and hope for the right placement for you in your next stage.

With warmth and gratitude, RW”

“Dear Dr. Shim Ching,
My diagnosis of breast cancer and recommended removal of my left breast, nipple and areola left me completely devastated. I knew I could not bear looking in the mirror each day and seeing an emptiness where the left breast used to be and an ugly scar where the incision took place. I knew I would be psychologically wounded from living my daily life lopsided, with only one breast.
I decided that I wanted and needed breast reconstruction. I consulted with my breast surgeon and scoured the internet’s health websites looking for information that would facilitate my decision. I had two choices: breast tissue expansion, which involved a silicone implant (or similar foreign implant) or a tram flap procedure which uses a person’s own bodily tissue.
I chose a tramp flap because I preferred to reduce the risk of my body rejecting a foreign object infection, which happen so often in foreign implant procedures. This Tram Flap is a very complicated procedure and requires a specially trained plastic surgeon. It combines a mastectomy with an abdominoplasty in which the surgeon transfers an abdominal muscle and abdominal fat to the breast area. He then shapes and reconstructs the new breast.

My breast surgeon recommended Dr. Shim Ching to me. Although he was a new plastic surgeon to Hawaii at the time, a check of his background showed that he came with high recommendations and came with specific surgical training regarding Tram Flap breast reconstruction. During a seven hour surgery, he successfully shaped a beautiful new breast, which perfectly matched my right breast. During another procedure, he created a nipple and an areola. I am so amazed that I look totally “normal”. I am back to feeling feminine and like a woman again.
I am forever grateful to Dr. Ching. His talent, surgical and creative skills have made surviving breast cancer with dignity a reality. His courteousness and compassion have made this ordeal bearable.

Dr. Ching,
I am so very happy that I picked you for a doctor! When I was young, I felt good about myself. Then after going through a few loses in my life, I started to feel unattractive and unappreciated. I know confidence comes from within but what you have done for me gave me my confidence and spirit back! I will definitely be referring my friends and family towards your office. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I think you are a true genius.
Mahalo & Happy Holidays! D

Dear Dr. Ching,
I want to thank you most sincerely for your two operations that have so significantly restored my face to a much more normal appearance. This was a very critical rehabilitation for me, following the permanent immobility caused by Bell’s Palsy. Your procedures succeeded precisely as you had hoped and intended. My wife and I also much appreciated your gently courteous and intelligently professional manner. The communication was invariably clear, friendly and comfortable. Your office staff was also most impressively polite and helpful at all times.
We wish you every success in a continuously bright, happy, and very satisfying career.
With sincere thanks and warmest aloha,
JC

Dr. Ching is a consummate professional. Articulate, soft spoken, high powered yet humble, he is a disciplined genius. Stitches so fine you can’t see them to count them. You would need a magnifying glass. I’m not exaggerating. NOT AT ALL.

*Results may vary


Dr. Ching does the mastery and his minions (all expert and professional) do the followup. And that gives me a tremendous confidence. If something were wrong with the healing, I trust that he would have been alerted. His staff members are kind, expert in their own rights, efficient, almost loving in their very personal care.

*Results may vary


Their communications with emails and texts, the reminders of office visits, the front line office receptionists, all so wonderful. Efficiency at it’s best. Trust my word, this kind of business does not exist unless the head is meticulous and demands it of his employees as well. I’m pretty sure he sets the bar high for himself and so expects it from the rest.

*Results may vary


He does what he does and he is the best. This Dr. has many exam rooms in his office at Hale Pawaa and that office is a well run engine AND in addition, he also has his own surgi suite AND large recovery room. I think he must occupy half of the 8th floor.

*Results may vary


Big. Like I said, high powered. But if you met him on the street one would think he is a young surfer type dude. Except he’s too well spoken. He wears his education well.

*Results may vary


He took my medical history prior to surgery very seriously and was careful in his pre surgical advice so things went seamlessly. I had a massive surgery. It’s going to take months to heal. But I woke up after the 3 hour surgery, a little jelly legged but walked out on my own to be driven home. Everything went as predicted.

*Results may vary


Like I said, soft spoken and very calm but thorough in his explanations and his follow ups. His final talents are evidenced by the results of the surgery, of which result, I am completely ecstatic over. I recommend this surgeon, MOST highly.

*Results may vary


Educated, good looking, gentle, a tad stoic, articulate, kind…..almost sweet. I’m absolutely sure outside of the office he displays as much couth and refinement as the doctor I have come to trust and admire.

I worked for two plastic surgeons when I was younger and saw what a huge difference a surgeon can make. So when it came time for me to consider my first plastic surgery a few months ago, I was concerned about finding the right surgeon. I didn’t want to end up with an operated look, or appearing radically different, like some people I’d seen before. I just wanted to look like a fresher, younger version of myself. Of course, I was also concerned that the surgery would be performed in a safe environment, with a highly competent anesthetist and skilled nurses assisting in the procedure.

*Results may vary


Several people I know had been to Dr. Ching and LOVED their results. I thought they looked amazing, too. So I decided to go ahead with a consultation. Dr. Ching really took his time with me, explaining the various procedures I could consider, and answering all of my questions. I didn’t feel rushed, and was told to think things over before booking anything. I felt so good about Dr. Ching and his state-of-the-art facility, I decided within a couple of days that there was no need to look any further. I booked my surgery as soon as he could fit me in.

*Results may vary


After weighing all the options as far as procedures, I decided to start with an endoscopic forehead lift and upper/lower blepharoplasty with canthopexy. I’m happy to say that the experience was first-class from start to finish. The office staff was very professional and helpful, the pre-op instructions were very clear and I was made super comfortable at check-in on the day of surgery. The anesthetist (Grace Liu) was incredibly attentive and put me at ease, as did the nurses (Cindy and Cathy). Recovery was quick, and I was on my way home soon afterwards.

*Results may vary


That was two and a half months ago, and I’m DELIGHTED with the outcome. The results are subtle, yet striking. No more droopy lids or bags under my eyes!! I definitely plan to return to Dr. Ching for more work in the near future.

I’ve been working hard for years to get back my pre-baby body but after 2 kids its been hard. Dr. Shim Ching is wonderful and he has a great staff. They take care of you from beginning to end. I totally recommend this place to anyone looking to get any type of cosmetic surgery done. The price may be a lillte more then those fly by night plastic surgeons but it is your body after all isn’t it worth the extra money to have it done right the first time. I know I’m worth it and Dr. Ching is the only one that I would trust working on my body.

“Last year, I realized that I have always taken care of those around me and failed to do more for myself. To love myself- take care of my self and to be happy. This new realization caused me to look at all aspects of my life that I wanted to improve and polish on. By profession I am a fashion model and during 2011, I was Ms. Hi. My standard for inner and intellectual beauty is my driving force however with this comes the natural addition to take care of myself physically as well. I strive to take care of myself in every aspect of my life however getting makeup done every day for bookings, surfing in the sun, etc all affects my exterior in many shapes and forms. I work hard to be at my best light and I do the same for my body, my vessel. I was discussing this with my OB doctor and she suggested I make a consultation with Dr. Shim Ching. As soon as I walked into Dr. Ching’s practice, I was relaxed and impressed. You have the sense of appreciated value and worth just from the presentation alone as you walk in the front doors. During the consultation, the patient coordinator answered all of my questions and was very helpful and educational.Then Dr. Shim Ching came into the exam room to review treatments and procedures. He took his time,was very calm and educated me on the pros and cons of the treatments and procedures I was interested in. From our consultation, I felt very comfortable and well informed. Not many doctors approach their patients the way that Dr. Shim Ching does. This is why I decided to go with his practice. I look forward to the results and will respond with a follow-up review!”
