I had been doing a search in the internet for the past 2 years and kept coming back to Dr. Lam. His website is probably the most comprehensive, and also showed the most amount of before and after photos, which were so beautiful and natural. . I'm now 51, and I just wanted to turn back the clock a little bit and I wanted to look like I was well rested. I was a little bit tired of sometimes... more
Dr. Lam did a full facial fat transfer in December of 2006. I was swollen for about a week, but after that I was attending my usual social functions and getting comments like "you look great".

Cons, face was swollen for approximately 2-weeks, however, it... more
I am 51 years old and I had my face fat transfer done about 7 months ago. I'm very happy with my results. I heard about it from some tv shows and started doing my research. I ended up choosing the FAMI technique. The doctor I went to also activates the stem cells in my harvested fat with PRP. PRP is platelet rich plasma. His nurse got extra blood during my pre-op blood test and then they... more
