Amir Karam, MD Reviews (457)

Lip Lift

The office procedures and care for the patient are outstanding.

Fat Transfer

Dr Karam is a fine person and a great surgeon. My experience with his staff was first rate. Everyone in the office is kind and very professional. I trusted Dr Karam to make the decision as to which procedure I needed to achieve my goals. He was correct as the outcome is outstanding. I don't believe that there are many facial plastic surgeons who get the results that he does with his fat transfer technique. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a very skilled surgeon who consistently produces very natural and beautiful results. I had had previous surgery with mixed results. I was bothered by hollow temples and unnatural looking filler. in my cheeks. I look at myself now and realize I have my face back and I'm amazed and grateful to have found Dr. Karam.

Eyelid Surgery

The estimate cost of the procedure was twice as much as the estimate from the coordinator for the same procedure. The doctor gave me the impression that he didn’t want to do my procedure.

Face Lift

Dr Karam and his staff are just awesome! From my first appointment to the last and even the one that I have coming up, every single staff member has made me feel like I am part of their family and I love that! Not to mention my outstanding results! No one knows that I had anything done and I'm getting so many compliments these days on how beautiful I am. My facial rejuvenation now matches my heart. I'm just so happy that I did my research prior to having anything done and consider myself part of Carmel Valley Facial Plastic Surgery family. Will always go to my amazing Dr. for all my facial rejuvenation needs! I was anxious about having surgery. It was the not knowing I guess that made me anxious. Dr. and staff really did prepare and put me at ease so that on the morning of the surgery I was calm and ready to go! I could tell the same day that I would love my results even with the swelling!

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!

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.


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

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.
