Amir Karam, MD Reviews (436)

Face Lift

Dr. Karam is second to none in the specialty of facelift. His technique is fine tuned and highly refined and gives you natural, youthful results. The nurse was equally skilled, patient and comforting. His post-op strategy of supplements is a power-packed healing formula.

Eyelid Surgery

Expectations that were given to go back to work were very unrealistic for my procedures and as a male. Results not natural looking, several people I know have commented on why my eyes look strange or so different.

Face Lift

My questions we answered completely. Everyone instilled calm and confidence.

Neck Lift

Some of the forms from the first consult to the next were redundant and they could have been sent to me via email.

Face Lift

Great results, highly knowledgeable & friendly staff!

Face Lift

Wait time for visit was 1.5 hour

Face Lift

They seem to listen and we're attentive. Eye contact throughout.

Face Lift

Dr Karam answered all my questions simply and so I could understand easily. He explained exactly what he is is going to perform in surgery. He held the tweezer to exactly the places on my face and neck that need work. He has a very pleasant demeaner and gave me a calming feeling. He explained the work to be done in detail. Leanna followed up after Dr Karam and she is very helpful. Will definitely find out everything I need to know at pre op in January. I previously told mysel I would never have a facelift but after seeing the results of a friend and before and after photos I see , that Dr Karam's work is very natural and I feel that he is an excellent and very well qualified surgeon. Thank you to everyone in office who is making my experience feel comfortable and exciting to look forward to.

Face Lift

Dr Karim is highly skilled and caring. I am less than 3 months post-op, but it appears that I have the exact results I wanted. The problems areas are gone and I have very natural looking results.

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.

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.

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.

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!!
