Amir Karam, MD Reviews (503)

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.

Rhinoplasty

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.

Rhinoplasty

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!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Karam is not only excellent at what he does, he is also one of the kindest and friendliest doctors you will ever meet. The best thing about my treatment: no more forehead wrinkles!

Lip Lift

Had a neck Laser at same time as lip Lift. Absolutely no result what so ever. And lip lift, had to redo entire folds with filler something I didn’t need as deeply prior to lip Lift. The lip lift itself. Very quite change.

Neck Lift

Dr. Karam and his staff are experts, demonstrating competence and confidence in assisting patients. They patiently explained all procedures and repeated explanations as we moved through the exams and surgery. I look terrific, but not pulled and plasticizes. It’s a very natural-looking rejuvenation - years have been taken off my appearance. [Single best thing is...] I’m very impressed with and grateful for the staff and Dr. Karam’s complete confidence in providing all aspects of the surgery and recuperation. My outcome is phenomenal!

Face Lift

Very professional Dr Karam, before and after the surgery and how impressive the recovery is super fast !!! [Single best thing is...] The preparation 15 days before the surgery was great, all the supplements and vitamins! my first face surgery and I'm very happy, I totally recommend Dr. Karam.

Face Lift

Dr. Karam answered all my questions in detail, was patient and listened to my all my concerns! Since I am not in state I had a face time appointment, I'm impressed how punctual he was with the appointment time, I had a 5:00 appointment and was on the phone with him at exactly 5:00.

Fat Transfer

Thorough explanations and time put into making sure I understood my options.

Face Lift

Surgeon took his time to answer my questions. Staff knowledgable and courteous. Very well organized process

Lip Lift

Dr. Karam and his staff always make me feel very comfortable. They are informative, attentive, and caring from the minute you call or walk into the office. Dr. Karam has performed previous surgeries on me and I am very confident in his abilities and suggestions.

Neck Lift

I felt that Dr. Karam was honest with what he thought needed to be done and why he chose the procedures he performed.

Non Surgical Nose Job

The doctor was very attentive and thorough. My wait time was minimal and I was able to have the procedure immediately after the consultation. The results were exactly what I had hoped for.

Face Lift

Dr. Karam was highly knowledgeable and offered a different option for me as compared to the other surgeons I consulted. His facelift was one of an upward lift as opposed to a sideways lift. He also was unique in explaining in detail how a fat transfer to the deep lines around my mouth could be permanently altered as opposed to other temporary solutions. He was alone in offering me these two options.
