Hello Dr. Lam,
I am scheduled to come in next Monday . I have acne scars and hollowness under my eyes, a little in the cheek area too. Usually more hollowness in the cheek area, that is partly why I am writing.
Recently, I have gained 7lbs and it has filled my face in from its more hollowed out look. I am thinking when I come in, you will want to begin the silicone injections for my acne scars (hopefully that day ). I typically do go up and down within these 7lbs on my weight. Would it be better for me to be at my low weight to do the silicone injections for my acne scars, or does it matter? How will it affect things if I am at my high weight when I get the injections and lose down to my low weight later on(within 7 lbs difference always), will it make anything look funny?
Should I bother trying to be at the lower weight when I come? Would it be better for the silicone to be at its lowest level on my face for future plasma resurfacing? (Hoping to have a fat graft done in about 2 years).
Will you be able to help my hollowness under my eyes on my first visit along with the silicone injections for my acne scars? I don't think there are any in that area? How about helping my eyelid that droops a little (eyelid, just one droops? ) Is that something that can be done on a first visit.
Sorry, can you tell I am a little excited about coming and getting somethings touched up? I am SO excited and hoping to soften things up some.
Also, my appointment is on a Monday, how long until I can be in the sun? Do silicone injections require one to stay out of the sun for a space of time? How long? I do not get much sun, but will be helping a friend with a garage sale very soon, so I thought I would ask.
Should I bring pictures of what I use to look like, in my glory days for any of the above problems, or is that only for fat transfer?
Oh, and I don't remember seeing this on your website anywhere, but, I am sure it is there somewhere, which silicone do you use?
Thank you SO much, can't wait to meet you.
I appreciate all of your time.
