Amir Karam, MD Reviews (514)

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.”


Great staff, and caring doctor.

Lip Lift

I have seen other patients in person who had the same procedure and the results look great. In addition, Dr. Karam did not recommend another procedure I thought I needed.

Neck Lift

Excellent contact from everyone. Dr. consultation is the best of any I’ve been to.

Eyelid Surgery

You are very pleasant, thorough and professional. And, I know your work is amazing from my own experience with surgery by Dr. Karam 8 years ago.

Face Lift

Excellent information. Personal. Patient. Very professional.


Overall, everyone was very welcoming and nice, made me feel like it is going to be a good experience. The doctor was thorough, but at the same time kept it to the point and easy for me to understand. Left feeling confident in this doctor.

Face Lift

Dr. Karam achieves outstanding results. My eyelids no longer weigh on my upper eyelashes. In fact, even now at 70, they look more youthful now than in my entire life!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

The injections were placed very accurately and produced the best results the I have ever had with this procedure.

Fat Transfer

Dr Karam and his staff were awesome from the time of my phone call to inquire about fat transfer through to my pre-op visit. Hands down the best team of medical staff anyone could ask for. Caring, kind, professional, competent and super informative. I can’t wait to have my procedure in a few weeks and am 100% confident I have THE BEST plastic surgeon performing it.

Face Lift

Everyone in the office is so friendly and helpful. Very detailed information on what to expect and how to care for the areas operated on. [Single best thing is...] It has given me my confidence back! I was really getting depressed with the obvious signs of age and feeling like makeup just wasn't doing the trick anymore. I would cringe when I looked in the mirror. It's been almost 10 weeks postop and I look better every day.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Karam is excellent.


Dr. Karam and his staff make you feel so at home and so comfortable. Leaving you feeling comfortable and relaxed!!

Face Lift

Dr. Karam and his staff excel at the highest level of medical care, holistic health and professionalism. Their consistent top level care is seen and felt in all areas of this successful, highly regarded practice. Dr. Karam’s medical training, research background, and teaching experience define the pinnacle of clinical expertise. There is not a more highly regarded expert in the facial plastic surgery world than Amir Karam.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Karam is the best.


The staff was very friendly, and the office was beautiful. The doctor seemed very confident and experienced, but I felt as if I was wasting his time by talking to him and that he found a way of dodging any questions I had, dominating the conversation and not taking time to listen. Maybe the practice should charge for consultations, then he wouldn’t feel his time was being wasted. Overall it just felt very impersonal, I believe he would have done a good job but for the price, and the risk (being a permanent change to the middle of my face) I needed a little more reassurance and feeling of genuine care, which I did not receive from our conversations.

Injectable Fillers

It was an average visit, nothing special.

Injectable Fillers

Dr. Karam is a skilled doctor. He is excellent with fillers, he always leaves you looking very natural and you never look like you've had anything done!
