“Some people have asked me what made me move from anesthesiology to aesthetic medicine,” Dr. Lam says. “In my career as an anesthesiologist, I have saved more patients from disasters than most can imagine. One day, after I had completed my assessment on a patient going for cancer surgery and was about to bring her into the operating room, she reached out to me and asked me if it was OK for her to keep her lipstick on. She said she never goes anywhere without her lipstick, and that if she has her lipstick on, everything is going to be all right.”
“I realized there and then how powerful a person’s appearance is to his or her outlook and level of positivity. It is with that in mind that I move from being in the background of saving people’s lives to the foreground of giving them the positivity of being the best that they can be. To me, there is nothing more gratifying than to see someone beam with happiness from the work I have done on them.”Back to Top
