At Hawaii Plastic Surgery Associates' multiple locations, an affable staff of medical aestheticians, nurse aids, and massage therapists takes cues from board-certified plastic surgeons while administering beauty treatments and sigh-inducing spa services for the body and skin. Drs. Todd Mirzai and Bao Phan cushion surgical procedures with IV-based anesthesia and complimentary house calls at each office's private recovery bungalows. The team also specializes in a variety of noninvasive cosmetic procedures, such as Botox injections, microdermabrasion, oxygen facials, and prop-mustache removal. Staff members go to great lengths to ensure clients' comfort, offering airport pickup and drop-off, grocery-store runs, and medical sitters.
In his role as the chief surgeon at Aesthetica Plastic & Laser Surgery Center, Dr. Gregory Caputy draws on knowledge gleaned from his presidency of the Hawaii Aesthetic and Wellness International Institute to strike an ideal balance between artistry and anatomy. Along with his skilled team of aestheticians and medical professionals, Dr. Caputy aims to satisfy beauty desires with cosmetic and surgical treatments for the face, body, and skin—many of which account for the specific needs of island natives and Asians. Among the services offered are Sculptra Aesthetic injections, which helps replace lost collagen and corrects shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds.
The center’s aestheticians exemplify the individual care that Dr. Caputy has sworn by since he began his practice, rejuvenating complexions with custom treatments and staying beside their clients for the duration of each visit. If you manage to sneak away from their sight, take a moment to relax on the waiting room’s tan leather couches, bathe in the sunlight that spills in from oversize windows, or admire Dr. Caputy’s collection of diamond-encrusted stethoscopes.
After sidelining her career as a painter more than 20 years ago, Lisa Nose decided to apply her creative energy and deft hands to the art of cutting and coiffing tresses, a successful venture that lead to starting her own salon, Touch Of Beauty.

Lisa relies on Paul Mitchell and Joico products for hair care, and utilizes Valmont products for facials. Her brush continues to grace canvases when not at the salon, a helpful tool that allows Lisa to turn eyelids and lips into her canvas as she applies permanent cosmetics, freeing clients from a life of refusing to smile in case lipstick or the forearm of unassuming strange has gotten stuck on their teeth.
At Face It Permanent Make Up Center, a team of skilled micropigmentation specialists, each certified by the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals, enhances faces with permanent makeup.

While darkening brows or adding a starlet beauty mark, the artistic technicians employ micropigment colors—which, unlike traditional tattoo ink, don’t acquire a bluish tint over time. They calibrate the pigment with the utmost care, blending hues to match a client’s skin and hair or applying multiple shades of color to brows for a natural look. The professionals also specialize in correcting work performed at salons and in scar re-pigmentation, shading in the pale tissue left by surgical procedures or jobs as the Three Stooges’ carpentry teacher.
