Amir Karam, MD Reviews (530)

Lip Lift

I recently had a lip lift and could not be happier with the results. Not only did the surgery make my lips fuller and better shaped, but it also got rid of the laugh line under my nose. Dr. Karam performed the surgery with the precision of a diamond cutter and artistry of a sculptor. The surgery gave me a more youthful appearance and yet looked very natural. I had very little down time and no bruising. I also had Dr. Karam inject facial fillers and got excellent results. He knows exactly where to do the injections and how deep to go with them. He is truly a genius at his craft. Dr. Karam has also surrounded himself with a great staff. They are all knowledgeable, friendly and extremely competent. I have been going to Tonia Cohn, aesthetician, for over six years and have been extremely happy with her professionalism and expertise. She always recommends procedures that are right for me and I see results. I wholeheartedly recommend both Dr. Karam and Tonia to friends knowing they too will get the results they seek. They're simply the best.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Karam and his staff exceeded my expectations from start to finish. Dr. Karam was thorough in explaining the procedures and the reasons behind his suggestions. I was completely at ease knowing I was in the best hands.

Face Lift

I received answers to my questions

Rhinoplasty

I felt very comfortable which was my #1 hope when choosing a doctor. I was also very pleased with the front desk staff and with Danielle who was very helpful with both scheduling my appointments and responding back to my emails very quickly. I had a great experience at my consultation.

Face Lift

I am very please with the Vertical Restore procedure. My fear was that I would look different after the surgery, but I look the same, just ten years younger. There was minor discomfort, as expected, but once the swelling went down, my down time was minimal. The best thing about this procedure is that I don't look like I have had work done.

Lip Lift

Very friendly office staff and nurses. They made me fell very comfortable

Neck Lift

I'm very happy with the way my neck looks. I just saw a before and after picture and, wow, what a difference. There is still some residual inflammation under my chin that Dr. Karam is working to resolve to my satisfaction. The staff is extremely friendly and does a great job. [Single best thing is...] the confidence I have in the workplace and in my social life.

Face Lift

I had excellent results. Procedure was done with local anesthesia & not general which is a major plus. Medical team very attentive & professional

Face Lift

Dr. Karam took the time to explain the procedure to me and analyze my face and issues at hand. He gave me great suggestions and insight.

Fat Transfer

My overall experience was very pleasant. I have not had the procedure yet, but am planning for a time frame to proceed. The staff was warm and friendly and Dr. Karam was too.

Mole Removal

Dr. Karam was so nice and calm. He assured me that I wouldn’t feel anything. I followed his instructions on what to do post removal and it healed beautifully.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Karam was quite warm and inviting. The conversation was like talking to an old friend.

Face Lift

Always answer all my questions, give the best honest advice about future procedures and I appreciate that. I trust Dr. Karam, his assessment and his work based on previous surgeries he has performed on me, his ethics and eye for detail.

Lip Lift

From the moment I entered, I felt valued and in highly capable hands. Not only were all my questions fully answered but I was asked all the right ones.

Neck Lift

Knowledgeable, kind, honest, professional, comfortable,confident.

Fat Transfer

I have not had the procedures done yet, but the office has been very thorough in helping me set up for my procedures. I feel prepared

Face Lift

Dr. Karam and his staff were very professional and informative. Dr. Karam seemed authentically concerned with my needs, and mapped out a plan for my upcoming procedure.

Face Lift

Dr. Karam is amazing - He answers all my questions, I have already had a preop appointment but have had more questions and he has made extra time to see me 2 more times just to answer my questions. He is really kind and I am so happy to have found him.

Face Lift

[Highly satisfied with] Pre op vitamins, videos, surgical center not a hospital. Post op next day was nice, would have liked to see Dr. last day. The results look great! People I run into say, “Your skin looks great.” “You look like your 30.”

Rhinoplasty

Great staff, and caring doctor.
