Amir Karam, MD Reviews (414)

Fat Transfer

I was extremely impressed with the surgeon's thoroughness and answers to my questions. Both my sister and I will probably use him in the near future.

Brow Lift

The surgeon has done procedures for me in the past. so he knows my situation. For the issue I am dealing with now, he consulted with me over the phone, after I sent pictures to his office, saving me from having to drive 120 miles to his office. He explained that there were 2 or 3 possible courses of action to take for my issue, so we agreed that I should, in fact, drive down to see him so that he can make the best decision for me. I appreciated the time he took to listen to my concerns and offer different possible solutions. And, I appreciated his care in asking me to come into the office so that he can make the best decision possible.

Face Lift

Loved the staff and trust me I almost chickened out a week before the surgery. Fear of the pain was the main reason but happy I followed thru. I loved, loved, loved the bouquet of flowers sent to my home while recovering. I posted on all my social media platforms and it drew high praises.

Brow Lift

The doctor, staff, and office procedures were professional before, during, and after the procedure. All communication was clear, and every question has been answered. Dr. Karam even sent a personal text. Most of all, the results were more than I expected.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Karam is an artist. Results are so natural and beautiful. I'm much happier and less self conscious about my eye lids.

Face Lift

Very knowledgable surgeon.

Neck Lift

Surgeon approachable, friendly, confident. Clinical staff knowledgeable and friendly. If I am ever able to pay for it I would like to have the procedure done.

Neck Lift

I was impressed with Dr. Karam and that he conducted the entire seminar. He was very patient giving us as much time as we wanted to answer our questions. he made me feel very confident in his ability to perform the procedures with expertise, safety and good follow-up.

Face Lift

The Dr. was very knowledgeable, he answered all questions. He was friendly, told us his philosophy about face lifts and why some procedures need to go together.

Lip Reduction

Dr. Karam is direct and sets realistic expectations.

Face Lift

Cost especially since I was a returning patient and told I'd probably receive better price

Neck Lift

This practice, and Dr. Karam, are by far the most professional medical team that I contacted and researched. Everything about them is solid and professional: Their website; their patient success stories and pictures; their office; their staff; the facilities; and of course Dr. Karam. I can honestly say that I have never been treated so nicely, and so professionally, by a medical office in my entire life. I cannot say enough to praise the complete and total professionalism of this practice. Everyone there from the front desk to the clinicians to the surgical center is top notch and utterly professional -- and friendly!! So rare in today's world to have all of that in one place.

Rhinoplasty

The whole staff made me feel so comfortable and made me feel as though I was a part of their family, I want to thank so very much.

Eyelid Surgery

Everyone I spoke with was friendly and professional. Dr. Karam's photos are better and he sounded more confident than the cosmetic surgeons I met with locally, which is why I'll be spending THOUSANDS more to travel and have him perform my bleph/fat transfer. Our phone call was less than 10 minutes because I know surgeons are busy when they do consultations (having met with two others prior) and that is all the time I needed. The photos were so impressive that all I needed over the phone was the sound of confidence from the doctor. The surgeons I met in Denver were not confident at all. They had their assistants start my appointment by trying to offer laser or Voluma in a VERY salesy way. I don't see either of those things solving my eye bag problem long term or, if, at all! They were also going above and beyond with compliments, which was a turn off (one kept saying, You're so pretty! You're so cute!" -- I didn't like this, it seemed fake. I am a confident woman and I know what I look like. You don't have to praise my natural looks, I am here to get cosmetic surgery, let's talk about that LOL. Then when I finally met the doctor to discuss bleph/fat transfer, they didn't really sell me on the results. They were like, "This might help, it's up to you if you want to try surgery or a filler. Maybe start with Voluma or laser, then try a fat transfer & bleph later?"Why would I want to spend $3,000 on Voluma, only to have to return and spend thousands more for a surgery? Why not just tell me which option will give me the best results, rather than leave me to decide and lose money and possibly look botched?Dr. Karam's assistants did not play those silly games with me. Dr. Karam said with confidence that lower bleph & fat transfer will help get me results I desire and he very simply said, "You'll look great."That's all I needed to hear.The other doctors seemed confused about what would work best for my face, that confusion was not a risk I wanted to take going under knife! "

Fat Transfer

Karam is a miracle worker, everything he does, he does w/highest standard of care. I love his talent

Neck Lift

Skill technique of Dr. Excellent results - better than expected. I had complete confidence in him and the entire staff was helpful and informative every step of the way.

Neck Lift

Dr. Karam treated my spouse, and I was extremely impressed. I now trust him for my own treatment.

Eyelid Surgery

The results of the eye surgery were excellent. I had friends who want to do the same thing. They felt his incisions were very clean and well done.

Fat Transfer

Natural look - no one can tell I had anything done. :-) Good job Dr Karam, Thank you. All stuff and Dr Karam are very professional and extremly well trained. Best in town. I am telling all my friends how good everyone at your practice is. :-)

Lip Reduction

I liked Dr. Karam's approach to my situation. My husband was with me who is also a physician and he approached my procedure in a very professional compassionate manner. Based on recommendation from 2 friends and our personal contact with Dr. K, I am confidant in moving forward to trusting my face with this specialist.
