ok well there are several reasons why I would recommend Dr L. from the moment I started out researching doctors for my lip reduction he just stood out with all the positive feedback I got from the internet. then I contacted him on the forum of his practice website. he was so prompt in responding to all my questions no matter how many they were and no matter how often asked. little by little over a span of few months and after having my phone consultation with him I made my decision. ( Not to forget that in addition to getting all his support and sensing all the confidence and experience that he has I also felt that every member of his team at the practice was incredibly helpful and pleasant and comforting). I chose doctor L also because he's specialized also in reconstructive surgery which I think is very important. he really showed to have alot of expertise with what I had done today. I feel so lucky OMG I can't describe it

I had a Hair Transplant session on the crown area with Dr. Lam. It was a situation to correct and cover up a scar that I’d had from a previous surgery known as Male Pattern Reduction. The procedure worked well and I’m happy with the results. Dr. Lam really fulfilled all of my expectations, so I was very pleased with the outcome. I would certainly give a good referral for him.

since 2007 He has worked on my face. He spends time and also he will turn you down when he belives you dont need extra fillers. He tries to save you money and wont rip you off by selling you something you dont need. I have no lumps or bumps. I look 10 years younger and He is really good at sculpting your face at a reasonable price. He has turn me down before when he thinks I dont any more work. He is the best !

I have had injectables done for the past 8 years, both in Europe and stateside. Dr. Lam has been one of the most comprehensive, professional, enthusiastic, and precise doctors I have ever encountered. Moreover, every staff member is kind and genuinely exudes a love for their position here. I will always come back here. Dr. Lam is worth every penny.

Great Doctor. In addition to being highly skilled he's also very personable and willing to spend time answering any questions you may have.

Dr. Lam consulted with me initially for at approximately an hour to discuss what I wanted to achieve, and how he intended to do it. Unlike some doctors, he will not just "fill the lines" on your face -- Dr. Lam truly is an artist. He uses filler strategically to sculpt your entire face, to enhance favorable features and minimize flaws. He will always review his "plan" for your face before taking any action, and you will always know exactly how much you are spending before the procedure is done. His staff is amazing, the office is beautiful, and Dr. Lam is always, always, ALWAYS on time. I feel so fortunate to have found him!

About 14 years ago I was involved in an accident and tore my lower lip from the vermillion border to the inside. I was stitched up immediately but was left with a very lumpy lower right side lip. I also had a lump on the wet part of the area, and was very noticeable when I was talking and smiling. I had been to several plastic surgeon consultations through the years in Seattle were I reside and never felt comfortable with any of them doing the procedure. I spent $100's of dollars on consultations. I found Dr. Sam Lam in Dallas, Texas through this website and from googling "lip procedure specialists" online. It has only been 24 hours since my surgery but I am already thrilled with the results. I chose Dr. Lam because he has extensive knowledge with this procedure. We had a phone consultation and he took the time to answer all of my questions. I would also like to mention that his staff was equally amazing at corresponding with me via the phone and email. I arrived for an in person consult with the intention of going through with the procedure (after all, I traveled from Seattle to Dallas). I was hoping that Dr. Lam would tell me, "oh this will be easy". Well, he didn't say that. In fact, he didn't quite know what he was dealing with. My tissue was soft instead of hard so he didn't think it was scar tissue. He said he wouldn't know until he went in there. I am not an impulsive person...hello! 14 years of waiting and researching! I agreed to let him go in and figure out this bump. I was beyond nervous and even teared up in the room, thinking, "what if this is a mistake?". I can already tell you that it was not. As I said, it's only been 24 hours, but my lip looks SO MUCH better than it did before the surgery even with the swelling, visable stitches, and bruising. I can tell that it will heal to become more symmetrical than it was. Dr. Lam told me about 95% better, which is good enough for me. Dr. Lam is very honest and told me that he would never be able to get it 100% perfect. I am beyond grateful to him and his lovely staff for walking me through this process and truly caring. I hardly ever write reviews, but I have to let people know about my experience and my case. It is still very early in recovery but I am patient and excited for the results. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to send me a message via this website.

I would recommend him to anyone and everyone just because I really feel like he looked at each patient individually. Dr. Lam will look at your face correct the areas or improve the areas that he sees specifically on you. All of the girls that work in his office have never been anything but wonderful and pleasant and it's just a fun experience to come to his office. I can't wait to come back.

He is a very educated, wise and amazing person. Dr. Lam knows a woman's face. He knows exactly where to place the fillers and you look more youthful. I started to recommend him to other people because he is professional and he will tell you if you need to do something that he thinks is important. He knows exactly what he is doing. He cares a lot about his patients, which I think is very important. His staff is fabulous! When I walk in, they ask me if I want something to drink, they know me by my first name. Dr. Lam actually took my pictures of me today and discussed what he saw in the pictures, not just the nurse, but Dr. Lam himself did that. He is a very educated, wise and amazing person.

Chose Dr. Lam after researching silicon lip enhancement. This was my first visit to Dr. Lam's office and I have to say I was incredibly impressed. Dr. Lam is a true artist not only in his work but literally in the art hanging on the walls all created by Dr. Lam. His staff was wonderful and friendly from the first phone call and even more personable during my appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Lam!

Dr. Lam is well known in the plastic surgeon community. He is very truthful for what to expect from the business standpoint. Some doctors will tell me to do a lot of work, but Dr. Lam explains everything to me based upon my features and what is best, and other alternatives that will serve the same purpose, but is less expensive. He won’t sell you more than what you need.

The staff here is very pleasant and Dr. Lam was willing to answer a lot of the questions I asked, and I did have a lot of questions. He pays attention to the aesthetics and he’s artistic in his approach. He’s qualified in what he does.

In this video, I am discussing a very important concept in plastic surgery that safety always supersedes quality and use examples to illustrate this concept.
