Amir Karam, MD Reviews (638)

Eyelid Surgery

I felt safe. They were warm and professional. Excellent results.

Eyelid Surgery

The results are fantastic and natural. My confidence is back. Dr. Karam and the staff were professional and there for me when I had any questions.

Lip Lift

Dr. Karam was on point and available.

Face Lift

1) The results are incredible and very natural. I don't look "different" in that I look like myself 10 years ago but the difference between pre- and post-surgery is incredible. 2) The surgery team was excellent. I especially appreciated the daily check-ins during the first 10 days when I had a lot of pain from the swelling.

Facial Fat Grafting

The stuff are nice and helpful. Dr Karam is very experienced and knowledgeable. They really cared about the patient doesn't matter how busy they are.

Face Lift

The process was fast and recovery was not that bad. Dr. Karam is an amazing surgeon with a gift.

Contour TRL Laser Resurfacing

It has only been 2.5 months since my vertical restore, upper/lower lid, fat transfer and TRL laser. I have been told to be patient so I have had no contact with anyone except for the one week and one month follow up. I have concerns about certain areas of my face but not certain contacting anyone is helpful. I am Hoping my 3 month f/u I will have proper feedback.

Face Lift

Smooth procedure, as promised. Great recovery. Best doctor. A bit problem in the preparation time 2 weeks before the op but doctor solved it. I really like Dr. Karam's professionalism and honesty.

Face Lift

It felt like Dr. Karam wanted to dispense with the pleasantries & get the consult over with. I understand it's a free hour with him but the man in the IG & YT videos seemed warmer & more concerned about putting his potential patients at ease.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Karam was very informative and answered all of my questions completely. He did not seem like he was in a hurry and was very attentive.

Neck Lift

It looks natural, not overdone. Neck bands gone.

Fat Transfer

We have interacted with Danielle quite a bit and she has been very professional and extremely helpful! We had an excellent consultation with Dr. Karam and he could not have been more reassuring, friendly and helpful to us! We have been most impressed with every aspect of our interactions with this practice!


I felt like I was in very good hands during the surgical experience. I appreciated that Dr. Karam discussed his plan with me beforehand and also asked me if I wanted to make any last-minute adjustments and made a recommendation for a slight bridge narrowing, which I did. I trusted his recommendation because it was apparent that he treated my rhinoplasty as a unique case that required a custom thought process, which was important to me because I did not want to emerge from surgery with a "one-nose-for-everyone" plastic surgery-scooped style nose.

Eyelid Surgery

I liked that the doctor was available for a consultation.

Lip Lift

In our consultation Dr. Karam was very thorough and easy to interact with.

Face Lift

Doctor answered all my questions and I felt I made the right choice.

Brow Lift

Process felt very automated and definite pressure to book surgery by staff stating prices going up the following month. After receiving pricing info twice, in a time span of 8 months, and seeing a 30% increase in procedures, was insightful in the business practice. Looking for a more personal connection as a patient.

Facial Fat Grafting

The doctor was very nice and answered all of my questions.

Brow Lift

Staff always polite, helpful and took the time to answer any questions I had.

Face Lift

I invited my husband to join my virtual consultation with Dr. Karam. Dr Karam took his time and was patient with all our questions.
