About five years ago I had an accident which caused considerable scarring on my face and neck. Since I am African-American I was very concerned about how reducing this scaring wouldn’t cause more scaring. One of my original surgeon’s recommended Dr. Lam and told me he specializes I ethnic Rhinoplasties. During the first visit I knew that Dr. Lam understood what results I wanted and was very upfront as to what he would be able to do and not be able to do. The surgery took place in June and I can say that overall, considering what I’ve lived with this past five years, he made such a positive difference in my appearance. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Lam for anyone needing reconstructive surgery.
A couple of months ago Dr. Lam did my scar treatment and lip reduction. I located him while I was researching plastic surgery online. Dr. Lam is professional, nice, and very accurate with his procedures. At my first appointment, he understood everything I was asking. He knew what I wanted and what I needed and he did exactly that. I’m very happy with my results!
On Dec 31, 2009, I wrote a letter BOTCHED PLASTIC SURGERY on a cosmetic surgery forum and to this day I stand by my words. He has forever stolen my identity and I may never get that back as this is nearly impossible to fix, but I can share these words. To that little girl who is feeling insecure about her looks or to that older woman who is frustrated over that wrinkle, you are absolutely beautiful the way God made you! I want to share my open letter with the world and I hereby mention that everything written is 100% true despite what Dr. Samuel Lam will tell you.
On to the letter:
BOTCHED PLASTIC SURGERY
I am several years out of Dr. Lam's fat grafting and this shameless doctor has mutilated my entire face with cysts or what looks like hardened lumps which is anything but fat--maybe scar tissue several years later after the surgery. The entire area where he grafted sticks out of the rest of the skin and 'pushes' the skin upwards. All of the fat has disappeared, but I most certainly don't look like I did before I saw him but instead am left with mutilated skin with hardened lumps in the grafted area. I have watched every single one of his videos and talked to him online. I agree, he responds to every single email and I thought I was special and what in front of me was a good doctor. WRONG! He is in fact, not knowledgeable but likes to make up science. He says that over time, his fat looks better, it "grows" and becomes beautifully blended. WRONG! Fat does not grow but it only gets resorbed. Worst of all, I got these massive lumps underneath the skin and this may be permanent as some of my doctors have said. I have had fat grafting done by other doctors and I have never in my life encountered this as I did with Dr. Samuel Lam. His solution to every nook and cranny is to fill fill fill. He doesn't know how to reverse or fix this problem because he is an inexperienced doctor.
Does this look good? NO! This careless man took thousands from my bank account and that wasn't enough for him to double check his notes and graft only areas we agreed to. Whats funny is that his markings on the day of the surgery differed from what we discussed, and what he grafted also differed. He took it on his own free will to inject fat all around my brows, and now I look like a very angry neanderthal with prominent brows. All of those hardened tissue is sticking out and pushing the skin forward. Apparently this is permanent and I can't get those massive hardened lumps out. My once beautifully scuplted cheekbones which I loved and other people have complimented on are now lumpy and unnatural looking. I had beautiful eyes and cheekbones and Dr. Lam was the first person I ever met that had a problem with them and wanted to do something about them. I never consented to the grafts he put in but something completely different. If the patient doesn't have a problem with a certain feature, why fix it? Thats exactly what a good doctor told me, but oh no not Dr. Samuel Lam. He thinks what he does to your face is much better than what you have naturally. I look older, more tired, and my face looks constantly puffy like I've been crying over a sad movie or just waken up with puffy eyes. Who gave him permission to do this? Does he even write anything down during consultations because obviously he has a terrible memory or takes in more patients than he can handle!!!
Dr. Samuel Lam you need to be ashamed of yourself and how dare you call yourself a doctor. You disfigued my face and mutilated me permanently with your botched fat grafting. Afterwards, you make yourself out to be a saint and say you were doing me a favour by trying to help me. Don't ever say that to a patient after being paid thousands of dollars. I don't go out anymore and spend most of my time as an indoor hermit thanks to your mutilation of my face. Don't make yourself out to be a saint in public by calling yourself a helper of people and charge exorbitant fees at the same time. I can't believe I let myself be mislead by your answering of emails, wonderful videos, sweet websites, comments like "Let me take care of you!" "You will love it!" When I met you in person you are a different person than your character online. I should have listened to my instincts by a man who says that most of his fat graft stays when he does not even follow up with every patient who has had fat grafted. Dr. Samuel Lam is nothing but a bold-faced liar and a professional mutilator of human faces. How does he even sleep at night after turning me into a freak of nature leaving with this destroyed face for the rest of my life? I can't and I want nothing more than my old face back! I want nothing more than to turn back the hands of time and never have watched his videos on YouTube and ended up sitting in his chair! He actually has a video on "Safety before Quality." A safe surgeon NEVER EVER does all fat grafting in one shot like he does and he is lying when he says hes more conservative than other doctors. That kind of plastic surgeon is someone who is arrogant and someone who gambles with your health. Safe fat grafting is about doing it in stages, always. This professional face mutilator knows nothing on both but only how to destroy people's lives and steal human identities. You have no idea on what botched plastic surgery can do to a person until you live through it and I wouldn't wish this on any one else on Earth, not even Dr. Samuel Lam who personally mutilated me.
About two months ago, I went to see Dr. Lam. I needed and wanted a newer better-looking nose. Dr. Lam performed my Rhinoplasty. Dr. Lam is really enjoyable and detailed, and he has a really nice office. The recovery was easy, no crazy bruises, and after a week, no one could tell I had surgery. I will definitely refer him to others.
I have been a patient of Dr. Lam’s for three years or so. Today I saw his office for Botox. When I came in for a consultation at his office, and told him what I wanted done, he didn’t agree. Dr. Lam explained that Botox would give me better results than a facelift, and since I had a lot of sun damage, laser resurfacing could give me a fresher look without surgery. I like that Dr. Lam does not do a procedure that is not necessary. So far, I am absolutely thrilled by my results. It just looks totally natural.
