Reconstructive: Before & After Photos
Surgeries performed by facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Lam in Plano, TX.
This gentleman had a gauge earring that led to a deformity that ultimately led to a keloid. He had a very complicated surgery in which the keloid was entirely removed, which in turn left a large gauge deformity in his ear. He had a reconstruction of this using a rolled flap and then had subsequent radiation therapy to minimize recurrence. He is shown before and 8 months after surgery.
This 46-year-old African-American male is shown before and 1 year after keloid excision of his right neck and his left ear lobe. Of note, he had a prior keloid excision performed elsewhere that amputated his ear lobe that shows a persistent deformity.
This gentleman is shown before and six months after keloid excision in the back of his scalp with good success. Of note, he had multiple failures in the past with various injectable treatments by dermatologists.
This 39-year-old patient is shown before and one year after correction of scars from mole removal and childhood trauma that caused hair loss in several places. He underwent FUE hair transplant into the scars to correct the scars and to camouflage them. The scars are in the hairline, right temple, and back of the head in the hair-bearing scalp.
Cutting out bad permanent fillers surgically is a specialty of Dr. Lam’s. This patient had Bellafill performed elsewhere that led to multiple grnailomas across the face. Dr. Lam cut out the tissues under her eyes, in her cheeks, and around her mouth in a way that left behind hard to see scars and with a natural contour. If you have bad permanent fillers that need to be excised contact Dr. Lam’s office.
