Face Lift

Very happy with the overall experience. From the initial meeting to the follow up of the pleasant staff. The incredible work of Dr. Karam and his passion for his practice. The results of course is the best thing.

Face Lift

Ten weeks after surgery, I look like myself, only better. I am not distorted in any way. Dr. Karam and his staff provide a strong support system before, during and after the procedure. I believe Dr. Karam is an exceptional surgeon and an exceptional person. The entire process was very low-stress, which is pretty amazing when we're talking about someone making incisions on your face. The best thing about this procedure is looking at myself in the mirror and thinking I look good! The procedure has resulted in an improvement in my quality of life.

Face Lift

Dr. Karam’s personality is very attentive and sincere. He actually listens and tries to help meet the patient’s needs in an individual basis. He had answers to all of my questions.

Face Lift

Dr. Karam was extremely thorough in answering my questions. He was patient and the consult did not feel rushed in any way. He also comes across as extremely competent and a genuinely caring person.

Face Lift

I was extremely happy with my results. Being sad by what I saw in the mirror for years, too finally seeing my true self looking back at me...well to say the least it's the greatest feeling ever. [Single best thing is...] the results, the whole experience was easy. There was no pain afterwards. The staff the the Doctor go beyond your expectations. Best thing I ever did!

Face Lift

Lovely natural results packaged with caring staff and excellent physician. [Single best thing is...] Third procedure I’ve had with Dr. Karam—- TRUST... key!!

Rhinoplasty

Exactly what I wanted, very natural and subtle. The entire process was much easier than I thought and all the nurses and Dr. Karam were very helpful. [Single best thing is...] The care from the medical team.

Face Lift

Top notch surgery by Dr. Karam. No pain medication needed! No bruising! Dr. Karam is so superior to the surgeons I have met . From virtual consulting, to vitamins, awesome staff, returned phone calls and everyone taking their time to answer all my questions. I know I got so lucky to get him for my doctor. I feel I got exactly what I wanted and feel so happy. I traveled across the country for him and thrilled with my results. He’s your doctor for your face! [Single best thing is...] The results!!!

Fat Transfer

Dr. Karam and his staff were very warm, attentive and professional throughout the whole consultation and operation process. The results of the surgery were great. I'm very glad I decided to go with Dr. Karam.

Face Lift

I love the results! The whole process was pretty easy, I was given clear instructions to help me along the way. The main thing is awesome result! Thank you Dr. Karam!

Face Lift

More than anything that was said, I sensed a great sincerity, kindness and concern and that, along with doing my own research on the procedure(s), was the determining factor on choosing your practice. At the completion of all interactions that I have had, I have felt complete confidence that I have made the right decision to have my procedure done by Dr. Karam. Thank you!

Face Lift

I am so pleased with my results. The staff and Dr. Karam made the whole process a very stress free experience. I couldn't be happier. I am forever grateful to Dr. Karam. He is the best! Dr. Karam took 15-20 years off my face and neck. I look like my younger self and very natural.

Face Lift

Dr. Karam specializes just on the facial features. His specialization techniques have made him a perfectionist in his field. I have had three procedures and trust his abilities 1000%. The best thing I like about surgical procedure is that I am awake, but feel nothing. Yes you are drowsy, but you are not under general anesthesia.

Face Lift

Professional, courteous, on time, efficient with time, knowledgeable, prepared.

Face Lift

The outcome was excellent. Dr. Karam and his staff were professional, kind, and extremely knowledge, and I was well-prepared for my surgery and post-surgery experience. The post-op was excellent. I look like myself, only younger. My before and after pictures, even at 6 week post-surgery were dramatic, but no one can even tell that I had surgery.

Face Lift

Dr. Karam and everyone on his staff are all so kind. They seem as excited about my upcoming procedure as I am! Their genuine interest and excitement about my specific case really helps to relieve any anxiety and creates a happy, fun experience. I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Lip Lift

It looks great! I love the results and I feel much more confident now. I am glad I did it.

Eyelid Surgery

Doctor was very inviting and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable with him. He and I came up with a good surgical plan.

Fat Transfer

I sustained fat loss from Thermage. I’m 50 but everyone always thought I was in my early 40’s prior to Thermage. Upon consultation, the dr lumped me into a category of people who claimed to suffer fat loss from thermage-ultherapy and would never be satisfied based on his past experience. He dismissed my experience almost like I made it up in my head and stated I eventually would have ended up with fat loss at some time. Yeah... like in 10 years from now! He basically stated I needed to do everything, fat transfer along with face lift and to wait until I could afford it. I consulted with a top PS from Newport Beach who has seen the damage from thermage/ultherapy and who was empathetic. I will be having the fat tracer with him..

Eyelid Surgery

I recommend Dr. Karam because he is THE ULTIMATE !!!!! 100% Dedicated to his clients, EXTREMELY TALENTED IN HIS FIELD, and always very aware of what his patients needs... Happy Client.
