Life Saving. amazing. Cannot Describe How Lucky I Am (Upper Lip Reduction) - Plano, TX

I did lip reduction. because my upper lip was huge...

I did lip reduction. because my upper lip was huge and had flares on the sides where you see the inside of the lip protruding down over the teeth. so you could see the red lip I guess. I wasn't looking for thin lip because I enjoy big lips although I'm a white individual but not originally from the states. I only wanted to take out the flares from the sides of my upper lip and keep my lip nice and full. and that is exactly what I got.

so I finally booked my trip my hotel stay a rental car made myself comfortable and went to his office for my scheduled procedure today. Dr L today made me twice as pretty. he corrected my upper lip something that I have been trying to decide whether or not to fix for the past 5 years. He showed great expertise. and you know what's funny? last week I saw Lisa rhinna on Wendy williams show and saw the results she had on her lip reduction she obviously got done with another doctor and I did not like her results. I am so surprised that she has not chosen Dr L he struck me as the best in the us if not the world. and believe me I researched everywhere. too bad she most likely would have had 100 times better results.

Anyway so I had my procedure done at 12:30 today oct 27 2010. when I looked in the mirror after the procedure which took aproximately half an hour and was absolutely painless, I was so happy. My lips lookes so beautiful and sexy. I am a little private and don't like to put my pictures on the internet but I really want to at least write something to help out people with the same problem.

I'm at my hotel room right now and the effect of the anesthesia has worn completely I haven't had to take anything for pain yet not even a tylenol. Although doctor sam explained to me thoroughly what could or could not occur after the procedure what I am actually experiencing right now is emmazing. I have no discomfort whatsoever. the only bad thing is that I can't smoke and can't eat anthing but soft food. pain wise or discomfore I would say I'm at level 1 (1 being the lowest discomfort).

I'll probably be putting in more info at later times may be after the recovery period is over. lol although I feel almost fully recovered already.

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 fat put into my lips and for 10 years have hated it. The doctor did a terrible job. There is fat above my upper lip and the very middle of the red part of the upper lip is too large. It looks distorted. My smile is distorted. This fat has pushed down my actual red lip part. My lip is too far away from my nose. I've searched for a solution for a long time. I've been in mental agony for years. Help

I would definitely contact Dr Lam, maybe send him some photos and get a quick consultation via email. He really is terrific with lips.

Why do all Sam Lam's raving patients happen to be 'grateful to the Lord": does he have a following amongst Christian people?

I flew a 15 hour flight to get a lip reduction by Dr. Samuel lam,the most amazing dr in the world for this procedure. the 20 minute painless procedure left me with the most stunning lips and all I ha to do was show him a picture of how I wanted them to look like and he nailed it! The staff is so kind and sweet they always made sure I was doing ok,even held my had through it all. Dr. Lam was so sweet and funny might I add really charming. He listened to me and gave me even better results that I could have ever wished for! My lips were left uneven and over plumed due to constant juviderm injections. I made it clear that I didn't want thin lips and I wanted a completely different shape than the ones I had and I got exactly what I wanted I am so thankful to him , he is an artist!! I can't express how happy I am:) I feel free from my ugly lips and the funny thing about all this is that I almost cancelled my appointment because of all the bad reviews I had read but Jesus gave me a sign and I'm so happy I went through it! I hope I can help women that have my exact problem. GO DO IT! Don't wait u are missing out! I assure you that you will NOT get good results anywhere else!!!! And best of luck to u all :)

hey ur lips look very good. But is lip lift and lip reduction the same thing?

I don't think so. I had lip correction. it's a question you can ask dr Lam on his forum. which I used extensively before and after I had the corrections done

Hi there, congrats on your success. I too had a lip reduction with dr. Lam. He really is the best fo this procedure. My lips were huge after a round of overzealous silicone injections. The silicone spread to my upper lip and seeped down into the lower part of my bottom lip, in the white area. I was embarrassed to talk and smiling and laughing was out of the question. I lived like this for 2 years because I'd been told that there was nothing that could be done to help me. I'd overheard someone making fun of my appearance and that hurt me so deeply that I stayed up all night searching for help. I'm so glad that I did because I found Dr. Lam and shortly after finding him I went in for my first reduction. It improved my appearance tremendously. A year later I wished for an even smaller lip and more subtle appearance and he further reduced them. He is so kind and professional. I cannot imagine that there is a bad review about him. He's an artist and that is a fact. If you are going in for a reduction and you've had silicone there is likely to be distortion in the white portion of the upper and lower lip. He CANNOT correct this. He recommended against me getting kenalog injections onto the white lip area but I did it anyways and I'm glad I did because it's helped a lot. I go to Dr. Ruekl in Las Vegas for kenalog injections and the white lip on top is nearly normal. The bottom white lip is still bumpy but it's much better. The red lip is perfect in my opinion and this is the section dr. Lam was involved with. He is very conservative though, so if you want a big reduction you may have to go in twice or be very assertive when you're telling him what you want. I feel that I'd rather have someone undercorrect than overcorrect though. If you're going through this there is help, so keep your head up. :)

for me it was a one time correction. the results are exactly what I was looking for. I almost forgot about how I used to feel before I had the procedure done with dr Lam. I am so grateful for his amazing work. I get compliments about my lips all the time now. He is an amazing doctor and human being and I pray for him to have a very long healthy life and career. you are absolutely right it's always better to chose a doctor who is responsible and conservative a doctor who would not overdo things to make someone look unnatural. Did you check my before and afters?...
