Amir Karam, MD Reviews (473)

Fat Transfer

Actually lip lift and periobital fat transfer were performed exceptionally well and I had total confidence in Dr. Karan, and his nurse Stacy is an absolute wonder.

Face Lift

Danielle was very pleasant to work with and arrange my consultation. Dr. Kamar explained everything very well. The entire process was professional and informative.

Face Lift

Dr. Karam and his staff understood my needs and exceeded my expectations. Dr. Karam is a caring and professional plastic surgeon. He asked me how I felt, asked me what I was looking for, and showed me what he could do. I followed his recommendations and the results were nothing short of amazing. I feel better than I have ever felt and my self-esteem is through the roof! I get compliments on my face almost every day! My advice to others who are considering any facial procedures with Dr. Karam; don't allow your inhibitions to prevent you from feeling and looking your best, Dr. Karam can make it happen. I felt safe and well cared for throughout my whole procedure and I would do this again in a heartbeat! I had very little to no pain, I was told by the doctor and staff exactly what to expect at every step, and I was given all the tools and resources I needed to make this as pain free, comfortable and smooth as possible.

Rhinoplasty

Dr. Karam and all of the staff were very helpful throughout the experience. They provided me with all the items that I needed before my surgery and after. I had a very quick recovery process with minimal bruising and swelling. I didn't have much pain either - I only needed to take the prescribed pain medication for a few days and I was back to work after a week. Overall I am very happy with the result and it looks very natural!

Rhinoplasty

The results were excellent, the procedure was explained very well, Dr. Karam seemed very focused in achieving result we wanted, and facilities are great.

Rhinoplasty

My rhinoplasty results are exactly what me and Dr. K discussed. The experience from start to finish was fantastic- the staff, the nurses, the anesthesiologist, and of course Dr. K treated me with extreme care and professionalism. [Single best thing is...] The staff. It really calmed my nerves that Dr. Chou, Stacey and Dr. K all called me the night before. Dr. Chou and Stacey did a great job keeping me calm prior to going into the OR.

Treatment / Procedure

I went to have excess skin removed and was told it was successful. However it is still the same. There was a lot of waiting involved in the appointment as well.

Face Lift

Dr. Karam understood why I wanted to have the surgery done. Answered all questions.

Treatment / Procedure

Dr. Karma and his staff answered all my questions and concerns.

Fat Transfer

I have had several consultations from other surgeons and from the first contact with this office I felt the staff was organized, efficient and interested in informing me of the process. The initial contact was very reassuring. The Doctor consultation was more than I could have asked for. He explained, in easy to understand terms, what is involved, and what could be expected from the surgery. I felt no pressure to move forward with the surgery. I left feeling I would be in competent hands with an excellent, experienced surgeon and an office staff that cares about the patient.

Neck Lift

I especially liked that I would not need to undergo general anesthesia for my procedure. I was very impressed with how natural the “after” photos looked of Dr. Karam’s Patients.

Face Lift

The overall teamwork, preparation, instruction, care, kindness, consideration, communication, and always checking to make sure all your questions were answered. And the world class onsite surgical center. I finally look as good and energetic as I feel. I am no longer self conscious of looking so much older than I am. It takes no time at all to get ready to go out. I'm no longer buying skin care products that could never fix the issues I had.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Karam made me feel confident with the decision to move forward with the procedure. Danielle Scott was very efficient and knowledgeable and very helpful in setting up my consult and appointment for my procedure. I am very happy so far with the professionalism and care they have shown me. Looking forward to having my procedure done.

Lip Lift

The entire team was helpful and I always felt I could ask anything, and receive an answer that was useful and in a timely manner.

Fat Transfer

Result is very good and I am happy with the removal of under-eye bags. Dr. and Staff very attentive and I am most happy with the results.

Rhinoplasty

As an African American woman, I was extremely satisfied with the exceptional expertise Dr. Amir Karam created in achieving a realistic outcome in my Rhinoplasty. The entire Carmel Valley Plastic Surgery Center staff were warm and wonderful. The best! It has given me the satisfaction in my appearance that I've always desired.

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!
