Am Miss Victoria, a 26 year old female, living in Nigeria,,i got to know about Sam Lams Facial on You Tube, I had a vertical scar on my face as a result of a bottle injury 3yrs ago, the scar is on the right side of my face,just below my right eye,on the cheek, so last year April i visited New york for a scar revision, the Doctor surgically cut out the scar and stitched it up linearly, it looked good after that, but some months later it started widening,with some areas being indented and other side raised, i want to visit your practice in Dallas for a scar revision. My mum also has keloids on her body, about 2 on her stomach, one on her breast, another at the pubic region,it itches her a lot, she wants to have them removed,she has removed it before but it grew back, her keloid is the major reason we want to come, because since i have had a scar revision done on my facial scar,which was paid for by her, which cost a lot,but have tried to convince her to let me do another scar revision, hoping that this time the result will be better,because this scar has really got me depressed, Can we get an appointment around 2nd week of december,that is next month,and also have the procedures done within that period , because am in medical school and my mum is working, so we have both gone through our schedule and that seems to be the best time for both of us to visit, Please what will the treatment involve and how much will it cost,thanks a lot for your time,have tried sending you a mail through your email address you sent to someone on this forum,and have not gotten a reply yet, please can you send me an email address through which i can forward some pictures of the facial scar and my mums keloids, thanks.
thank you for the kind inquiry. i reviewed the photos with my patient care coordinator and they do not seem to be within the scope of my comfort or expertise to manage. i wish and hope that you find the right doctor to assist you and your mother with your goals for correction. s.
