Face Lift

Very pleased with results. Excellent surgeon, kind hearted, skilled and detailed. Staff is professional, caring and follows up on everything.

Face Lift

My results were amazing! The doctors rates were higher than most but absolutely worth it! The staff, especially the nurse I saw with the fallow up visits shortly after were awesome. The doctor was friendly, professional and made me feel comfortable and confident as to the outcome of my procedure. I plan to go to him again for any future cosmetic work and will definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a excellent plastic surgeon.

Face Lift

After 6 consults with the top surgeons in my area, I am certain I have chosen the best!His website and videos gave me a clear understanding of his mission along with informative Youtube videos and before & after results. Once I met Dr. Karam I knew he was the one. He is very confident thorough and caring. I'm looking forward to my surgery and feel very confident that the results will be amazing!

Neck Lift

I felt the staff was very professional and accommodating. I was very impressed with an email I received prior to my pre-surgery appointment with links to videos of the different procedures I was getting.

Other

Dr. Karam is a genius! He is also honest and caring. I can now understand why he came so highly recommended by Dr. Ataii, another MD who I trust dearly.

Rhinoplasty

It was a smooth experience with a great recovery time - and love the outcome I feel so much more confident and happy with my appearance - it has changed the way I feel walking out into the world

Eyelid Surgery

Professional and courteous. I trust in the upcoming surgery.

Eyelid Surgery

Customer serviceExcellent doctor beside mannerIncredible results I wake up no longer looking tired and puffy. People have suggested I look 10 years younger! I no longer get comments about not getting enough sleep and that for me is a win!

Face Lift

Dr Karam is a miracle worker and knew exactly which procedures I needed done. Highly professional and thorough. Always there when I need him and surgical assistant Katherine helped me along the difficult times. They are both amazing, knowledgeable and show exceptional experience. I will absolutely go to them when and if I need future treatments done. I love my results and are very happy with the outcome. My emotional feelings have even gotten better than my usual upbeat self. Thank you Dr Karam. You truly are the best!!

Face Lift

Even with a minor problem, the doctor has gone out of his way to see me often to resolve and answer all my questions. The surgical result is just wonderful. I no longer wear my grandmothers chin.

Face Lift

See previous comment. I have an impression Karam spends more time and patience getting the order and afterward is very rushed and doesn't have as much time for your questions.

Eyelid Surgery

Great staff. Doc listened to my concerns. There was a bit of an edge of the eye that didn't get nipped off, and he did a follow up with out any charge, no issue, no complaints. Very satisfied.

Face Lift

I was told that if I did not give a a deposit which was required that day to book for the procedure that the price I was give $20,000 dollars can change within a week,I felt I had to give a deposit that day or else the amount that I was quoted could be raised substantially , I felt sort of under pressure to give a deposit that day .This was a big procedure and I needed to think about this even though I was told I would get my deposit back, I still did not like the fact that the price could change within a week or even a month. I had facial surgery before, but I was never told that the price can go up within a matter of a week or month I was not happy about that, I did like Dr. Karin but I also had other question that I needed to ask and felt a little rushed .

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.
