Amir Karam, MD Reviews (424)

Face Lift

The whole pre-op & post op was very through, informative & easy to understand, the staff & doctor treated me with respect & like a VIP, like we had known each other for a very long time. They treated me like I was a member of their own family only with professionalism. Dr. Karam although very personable, and extremely knowledgeable & skilled in his field takes great pride in his work, which is what we are paying for, and never once regarding his expertise with egotistic arrogance. Everyday (I'm 10 weeks post op) as if I could possibly be more please with my results it just keeps getting better. It has changed my demeanor, outlook & attitude about the next 30+ years for the better. I only get glowing compliments from my closest friends, and compliments from unknowing acquaintances. Everyone wants to know what am I doing that makes my skin look so great. let's just say I'll be lucky if I am as healthy as I look.

Neck Lift

The coordinator said the doctor wanted me to take certain vitamins before the procedure, for which they charged me over $100. The vitamins did nothing but me feel very sick for the whole time I took them. I feel this was an extra and very unnecessary expense.The doctor did not tell me that the lines around my mouth would not be corrected with the procedure, which is something I told him I wanted. The wrinkles on my cheeks were removed nicely, but my neck is still saggy. [patient name]

Face Lift

Doctors Expertise, Knowledge, Surgery Techniques, Caring Staff and most of all the before Surgery prep and after care was personally on hands from Doctor being available 24-7 for Me the patient and to My concern family members. I was very Satisfied and Recommend him highly. And most of all the results are amazing. Doctor and Staff caring for you before and still after surgery care.

Eyelid Surgery

i told him what i didn't want. he told me what he would do. we agreed on it. he came thru.

Neck Lift

The team is flawless. Dr Karam understands just what the patient wants and is very careful not to do more or less. The follow ups of staff and doctor are excellent. I am totally confident with the entire team. [name] Other than staying at home for the recovery it did not change my life. I just feel that I look better and that pleases me.

Neck Lift

Liana was amazing, warm, friendly, and helpful in all regards. All scheduling was easy and great information.

Eyelid Surgery

The surgery results were not what i was told they would be. After the surgery the surgeon dismissed me as a failed case and no longer gave me the required attention after three months.

Neck Lift

My end results are so natural. I just look better, but not like I had plastic surgery. Mainly, Dr. Karam continues to see me and monitor the outcome. Patients are not forgotten once the surgery is over. Dr. Karam and his staff really do care about the patients, I feel. I have more confidence talking face to face with people. Before I did not want people so close to my face!!

Face Lift

I felt the doctor had a lot of knowledge but I felt that he was trying to upsell me. After pricing out a couple doctors, I felt that the pricing was very high

Fat Transfer

Dr. Karam is one of the few plastic surgeon doctor that is very good of what he do, dedicated and honest to his patient. : )

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.

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