5 out of 5 stars Lip Reduction

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

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

5 out of 5 stars Fat Transfer

Long-lasting Fat Graft

I had no idea that "fat" could do so much. I only knew I no longer had any on my face and I looked unhealthy, unattractive. I really thought my only recourse was a facelift. I had f/g along with plasma resurfacing, Botox and conservative lip augmentation. I am one year out, as they say. I look fantastic, if I do say so! Sorry, but I'll throw modesty out the window and speak...

Keep Returning to Him for Botox, Even After Going to to Other Doctors - Dallas, TX

I found Dr. Lam because I wanted to go to whoever was best and a doctor friend of mine researched and said he said this was the best. I've used other doctors before Dr. Lam but I have returned to him time and again for Botox treatments and fillers. The results have been perfect. I was thrilled with what he did. Under my eyes, the skin was really sunken in and he filled that. I was nervous...

Super Fresh, Not Plastic. Great Experience with My Fat Grafting - Plano, TX

I did a Fat Grafting and Botox in March with Dr. Lam and I had an excellent experience, especially on my Fat Grafting. He had lots and lots of information, more than enough, and he educated me about my face. The procedures make me feel so good. It’s like I just had a good night’s sleep or a good vacation. It’s fresh, not plastic. If I want to do anything in the future he will be my...

5 out of 5 stars Scar Removal

Major scarring gone - Plano, TX

I came into Dr. Lam’s office three months ago with a huge concern of major scarring on my face that made my self-esteem very low. He advised me on what it would take to correct the scarring and was really thorough and knowledgeable of the actual condition I had. I’ve been quite happy with the results of that initial visit. He answered my questions more than anything, and initially what I tho...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Understand Asian Features

My experience going through Botox and Restylane treatments with Dr. Lam was very pleasant and every time I come to his office, I always feel beautiful. I’ve continued to see him for many years and I get a lot of compliments from my friends. I am Asian and I liked the fact that Dr. Lam and I share this ethnicity because I feel he understands my features more than another doctor might.

5 out of 5 stars Hair Transplant

The Procedure Worked Well and I’m Happy with the Results - Plano, TX

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.
