Amir Karam, MD Reviews (592)

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!!!

Great pre-surgery communication and explanation of procedure, advisory and supplements supply for pre and post surgery, very pleasant staff to deal with.Quality of supplied products for pre and post surgery is superb.

Treatment / Procedure

I had a procedure done by Dr. Karam after two failed attempts by two other surgeons. The result are wonderful and now I would never go anywhere else. Prices are high but great work is priceless. Highly recommend him!!

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Karam and the entire staff I interacted with were beyond helpful and professional. My surgery was delayed due to the pandemic and the office kept in touch and kept me informed regarding potential surgery dates until we were able to reschedule. I felt completely cared for and safe on the day of surgery and afterwards. I am more than thrilled with my results and my overall experience. The patient coordinators are so kind, warm, and knowledgeable. They always made me feel so welcome on my visits to the office.

Fat Transfer

Highly efficient staff, explained everything in detail before meeting with the doctor virtually. I was so happy to receive an email with so many details about the downtime for the procedure and even ballpark prices. The staff was kind and caring but most importantly for me, very smart and detailed. The consultation with the doctor was on facetime and fast but I got what I needed. I will probably talk to him again though, because I want more time to talk to the doctor.

Fat Transfer

The results were what I had hoped for.

Face Lift

Everything from the pre-op instructions to the vertical restore procedure was very professional and it made me feel that I was in good hands. I had my procedure two months ago and I am very happy with the results. [Single best thing is...] My interactions with Hilary. She always made me feel very comfortable.

Face Lift

I was satisfied but I had more questions and felt really rushed. I know how busy the doctor is, but another 10 more minutes of his patience and it would have sealed the deal for me!

Face Lift

The doctor answered all my questions.

Face Lift

I have been to Dr. Karam for three procedures over 15 years. There is no one else I would trust and his professionalism is stellar.

Eye Bags Treatment


Face Lift

Super personable and I wasn't made to feel that I was just another patient but actually the only patient. I was not rushed and all my questions were answered in a way that I could understand and was left feeling safe in my decision to move forward. The staff, Charity although we have never met, is fantastic... I'm seriously excited to meet her as it already feels like I know her. I would like to point out that I am never someone to write a review or take a survey, but this time and only time I felt it was necessary. Overall you are in good hands here and I look forward to my procedure in Aug. Thanks to all involved Thanks Team K
