Dr. Lam shows a patient of his one day after otoplasty or cosmetic ear pinning to show how minor the recovery can be. For more information, please visit www.lamfacialplastics****. Protuberant ears can be a devastating aesthetic deformity, especially for the maturing child subject to the ridicule of his or her peers. A simple and straightforward procedure, known in medical lingo as otoplasty, can return the ears to their natural orientation and configuration. Two principal pathologies may exist in isolation or in combination. A "lop-ear deformity" refers to the absence of an ear-cartilage fold known as the antihelix (the smaller curved, inner ridge of the ear that parallels the outer curve of the ear.) This type of deformity presents as an abnormally shaped ear that tends to flop forward. Alternatively, a "cup-ear deformity" refers to the exuberant cup-like cartilage bowl that resides near the actual ear canal that in turn makes the ear project out excessively. Surgery involves identifying the exact cosmetic problem and intervening in a targeted approach and on a timely basis. Oftentimes, ear surgery may be covered by insurance if done prior to adolescence.

Dr. Lam's patient talks about her experience follow nose cancer reconstruction a week and two weeks after her procedure. For more information, please visit www.lamfacialplastics****. Skin cancer has become an alarming epidemic today. The incidence of melanoma has steadily increased in an exponential fashion over the past several decades. Fortunately, people are becoming more educated about preventative measures, such as topical sun protection (SPF) agents and general avoidance of prolonged sun exposure. Early detection and treatment have facilitated better survival rates and avoidance of the need for extensive, disfiguring surgical resection. Dr. Lam has trained extensively in removal of skin cancer and reconstruction of the defect in the most aesthetically restorative method with a diverse array of "flap" techniques. At times, multi-stage procedures will provide the best option for effective camouflage of extensive defects or defects that reside in particular facial zones. But, oftentimes, a single surgical procedure is sufficient to restore the patient to a normal appearance. Dr. Lam is very sensitive about the ultimate aesthetic appearance and will not compromise in his goal to provide the best surgical solution for the patient. Dr. Lam is board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has authored three major facial plastic surgery textbooks, including Comprehensive Facial Rejuvenation: A Practical and Systematic Guide to the Aging Face, Cosmetic Surgery of the Asian Face, and the recently published Complementary Fat Grafting.

Dr. Lam lectures on the asian eyelid and his new classification for the aging Asian eyelid. For more information about Dr. Lam, please visit www.lamfacialplastics****. Facial plastic surgery for the Asian face has gained increasing popularity over the past decade. With advanced techniques and more surgical options, Asian patients are seeking cosmetic surgery at a quickening pace. Although traditional Western techniques may be appropriate in select cases, Asian facial surgery requires cultural sensitivity and unique strategies that preserve a natural appearance but enhance beauty. Dr. Lam's 2nd textbook, Cosmetic Surgery of the Asian Face, describes the many different state-of-the-art methods currently advocated, combining the best from the West and the East. Dr. Lam is board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

Dr. Lam lectures on the Asian eyelid and focuses on technique as well as a new classification for the aging Asian eyelid which he devised. Dr. Lam has classified the aging Asian eyelid into three types: the aging Asian eyelid with a natural crease, the aging Asian eyelid without a natural crease, and the aging Asian eyelid that has a previously surgically made crease. Each scenario requires a different approach to attain the best results. The aging Asian eyelid with a natural crease may be thought of as very similar to a standard Occidental eyelid. However, there is one major distinction. If the extra skin is simply removed from the upper eyelid for the aging Asian eyelid, the crease will oftentimes be made too high, which will appear unnatural. As mentioned, Dr. Lam believes that this higher crease also looks bad on the Caucasian patient but looks exceptionally unnatural in the Asian patient. Accordingly, if Dr. Lam needs to remove some extra skin for the individual with a natural crease, he will almost always perform fat grafting simultaneously to create the natural convexity of a youthful eyelid shape but also to maintain the eyelid crease height. Phrased another way, fat grafting permits maintenance of the eyelid crease height by pushing the eyelid crease back down to a natural height after skin removal alone raises the crease unnaturally. The aging Asian eyelid that has had a previous surgically created crease can also pose a unique problem. If the crease created in the past was natural, i.e., very little fat removed and a low crease configuration fashioned, then the eyelid can practically be treated the same as an eyelid with a natural pre-existing crease. However, oftentimes, the Asian patient had an aggressive "Westernization" procedure performed many years ago that appeared very unnatural at the time but somehow over time has become increasingly more natural in appearance. The reason for this change is that the loss of fat in the upper eyelid, increase in skin laxity, and brow descent have camouflaged the previously very high crease that was present years ago. In order to determine whether this is the case, you can simply lift up the eyelid to see where the crease was placed. If the crease appears very deep and high when lifting the eyelid up, most likely the previously made crease is very unnatural. Also, even though the crease has fallen over time, it can still look a bit unnatural because the thickened brow skin that descends downward still does not resemble the thin eyelid skin of a natural, lower crease. Here is the problem: if the surgeon simply removes upper-eyelid skin without paying attention to the patient's prior surgery, the result can unmask the previously very high eyelid crease and return the patient to an unnatural result. A browlift can also create the same problem since the elevated brow can expose the former unnatural crease height. A combination of a browlift and upper-eyelid skin removal can be a disaster. Accordingly, there are very few options for such a patient. Fat grafting alone can provide limited but safe rejuvenation of the upper eyelid without causing the problem mentioned above.

Dr. Lam grafting lectures to his facial plastic surgery colleagues about the aesthetic principles, technical aspects, and results with facial fat for facial rejuvenation in Hilton Head, SC. As the face matures over the years, facial fat loss contributes to a hollow, sunken look that typifies the aged countenance. The analogy of the full grape that begins to transform into a shriveled raisin may be helpful in understanding the process of volume loss that affects the face. Transferring fat from your thighs or belly to the areas that have lost fat in the face, like the brow, lower eyelid, cheek, and jawline can restore the youthful vitality of your face. Removal of fat from the body does not constitute body contouring or "liposuction", as the technique that Dr. Lam uses to harvest the fat from the body is different from traditional liposuction. Care must be exercised to remove only the appropriate amount of fat from the body in a gentle manner, while ensuring that harvested fat cells remain undamaged. Fat transfer may not be the solution for everyone. Traditional face and browlifting can be appropriate for many individuals seeking facial enhancement. However, facial fat transfer can also be effectively combined with facial lifting procedures to provide the optimal aesthetic result in the right candidate. Fat transfer to the lips, smile lines, and around the mouth is less than ideal due to the risks of eventual fat absorption as well as unnecessarily prolonged recovery. Dr. Lam tends to reserve the use of other fillers or skin therapies in this region when individuals desire enhancement around the mouth. Fat transfer has become a cornerstone of rejuvenation for Dr. Lam, as volume enhancement for the face represents an entirely new way of looking at the aging face. Rather than remove away precious tissue, Dr. Lam prefers to restore lost tissue and shape to the deflated and sunken face using his unique approach to fat enhancement. Dr. Lam has already completed his third textbook on fat enhancement, entitled Complementary Fat Grafting (Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins, Philadelphia, PA 2006), and believes that fat enhancement represents the present and the future for facial enhancement. Fat grafting requires very little sedation (light anesthesia), and Dr. Lam's method does not require any body or facial incisions at all. For patients seeking a non-surgical option for volume restoration of the face, many other choices are available at Dr. Lam's office, including Sculptra, Restylane, and Radiesse, each of which has its own distinct advantages and disadvantages. Although facial implants can be used in volume enhancement of the aging face, Dr. Lam typically prefers to use fat transfer, as this method provides the ability to shape complex areas of volume loss and facial implants alone can worsen the hollowness below one's eyes. Dr. Lam also specializes in fat transfer for aging hands in order to provide matched facial and hand rejuvenation. Oftentimes after wonderful facial rejuvenation, an individual exhibits mature-looking hands that still give away his or her age. Fat transfer to the hands is a short, pain-free procedure that provides not only immediate benefit but ongoing improvement in skin texture and tone.
