Samuel Lam has the following 2 specialties

  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
    The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

  • Otolaryngology

    An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.

See this man. See ONLY this man. He is a true artist. I have twice traveled from New Jersey to Texas to see Dr. Lam and, like others, would gladly travel from far continents to receive treatment in his safe and talented hands. I am supremely confident that you will find him as impressive as I and his other devotees do. Initially, I sought out Dr. Lam to remove lip silicone granulomas. This is a very tricky procedure, one that can be disfiguring in inexpert hands. Consequently, few surgeons in the world offer this procedure. Of those few, only Dr. Lam does it regularly and, more important, well. I liked Dr. Lam at first sight. He’s good-natured, confident and down-to-earth. He walked me through my lip procedure. He was skilled, gentle. I didn’t feel a thing. Renowned for his facial plastic surgery, I shared with Dr. Lam that I had noticed a lot of skin laxity after I hit 40 and asked whether he thought I was a good candidate for a mini facelift. Dr. Lam decisively replied, "No," then explained that what I was seeing was a loss of face volume. He said dermal fillers could restore my lost volume and (with Botox) could help me to appear youthful again. I gave it a shot, receiving Botox and then filler in my temples, around my eyes, and in my mid- and lower face. Dr. Lam was right. I walked into his office a 41-year-old and walked out looking a decade younger. The transformation was miraculous. A week later, my lip stitches dissolved and the lump on my lower and upper lip were gone. I live outside of New York City, home to many of the world's top surgeons. But when it came time for another round of Botox and fillers, I flew back to Texas to see Dr. Lam. There is simply no one else I trust to safely give the dramatic, natural results he consistently delivers. Overall, I had the same positive experience, only this time I left with an even higher opinion of the man. His mastery of facial plastics aside, I have yet to encounter another surgeon who is as thoughtful and ethical where his patients are concerned. On my last visit I wondered aloud if I would benefit from various surgical tweaking. Dr. Lam insisted I needed none of the above and essentially advised me to run should another surgeon suggest otherwise. Now, I haven’t even touched on Dr. Lam’s staff, who, by the way, think the world of Dr. Lam. I could rave about them for just as long, but I’m guessing I’m already over my word limit. In short, you will be hard-pressed to find a more charming, kind and competent group of professionals.

extremely pleased with Lam Facial Plastics!

I've had a wonderful experience with Lam Facial Plastics. Dr. Lam was thorough and efficient during every meeting. The staff was extremely nice and never failed to go above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and attended to. There were no surprises during surgery and everything ran smoothly. I'm pleased with how great the results are! I have more recovering to do before the swelling completely goes down, but even now I look much better and have achieved a more open eye look. Dr. Lam prepared me with everything I need to know about recovery time and care. I am very glad I trusted him with my cosmetic surgery experience!

I have wanted to have this procedure done for a very long time, but with all of the horror stories that go along with plastic surgery, I was a little nervous about actually going through with it. Dr. Lam put those fears to rest during my first appointment. One thing that stood out to me is that he has his very own art on the walls in the waiting room. I knew that I was going to have a very meticulous artist reshaping my new nose! He is very confident, professional, and lets you know in detail what he plans to do. After surgery, I had minimal bruising, which improved over the next several days. I had some swelling on the third day of recovery, and then my face improved very quickly. I would absolutely choose Dr. Lam again if I had to do over. He is a perfectionist, and I would trust him with any surgery. He and his staff handled everything with so much care and ease. Today, my nose looks natural and perfect! Dr. Lam gave me my confidence back. I am so happy with the result.
