Amir Karam, MD Reviews (543)

Face Lift

Dr. Karam is extremely knowledgeable and experienced; an expert in his field. He provides patients with outstanding results. His staff and his practice offer a comfortable and caring environment. [Single best thing is...] That my external appearance now matches how I feel on the inside - youthful and joyful.

Face Lift

An Exceptionally warm & insightful consultation. All of my questions were answered & I did not feel rushed.

Face Lift

I had upper and lower eye lid surgery with Dr. Karam a number of years ago and was extremely satisfied. Went to him recently to discuss sagging face and lip issues. He recommended the Vertical Restore with lip lift which I have now scheduled. I trust him and he does fantastic work!

Face Lift

He’s the best

Lip Lift

I had a problem with my smile. I talked about it to Dr Karam and he immediately gave the procedure that was the perfect solution for the problem

Mole Removal

The staff was excellent, warm and inviting. The office, etc was very clean and sterile. Mole removal was fast and painless. The laser peel i received was great. My daughters surgery went fantastic as well. Love the staff there.

Face Lift

First I was seen 5 minutes early; Dr. and assistant very knowledgeable; answered all my questions thoroughly; as the expert, offered information about my requested procedure(s) I may not have considered; very nice and extremely competent!

Face Lift

Dr Karam and his staff were so professional, they have a very calming effect on a nervous patient such as myself. Dr Karam did a fantastic job on my face, I love the results. He is a Master at his work. My experience was overwhelming positive. I would want Dr Karam to do all my surgeries from now on

Eyelid Surgery

Doctor Karam listened to my concerns and responded in a warm yet professional manner that convinced me that he not only has the experience and skills but also love of his work and desire to give me the natural refinement that I seek.

Eyelid Surgery

Staff was highly professional and I did not have to wait in the waiting room very long before I was attended to.

Eyelid Surgery

This is my second time having a procedure done by Dr. Karam. Excellent experience again!!! VERY professional service provided by the entire staff. As usual, another awesome job done by the Doctor. Dr. Karam is a true master of his craft. Excellent work!!!

Face Lift

Preplanning the surgery and all aspects were wonderful. Dr. Karam and the entire staff were very personal and committed. When I had a post surgery issue, I was seen immediately to handle it. The best thing was that the initial recommendation for what I should have versus what I thought I wanted was so much better than I could’ve imagined. I’m so satisfied and this will be my only surgeon I ever use.

Rhinoplasty

I am 95% happy with the outcome of the rhino for function and style. I do have a little remaining bump but hopefully it will subside over time. I appreciate the honesty by Dr. Karam. He told me exactly what was wrong, the best approach and obviously the skill set and staff to execute. Ultimately, I only want the best team working on my face.

Lip Lift

I recently had a lip lift and could not be happier with the results. Not only did the surgery make my lips fuller and better shaped, but it also got rid of the laugh line under my nose. Dr. Karam performed the surgery with the precision of a diamond cutter and artistry of a sculptor. The surgery gave me a more youthful appearance and yet looked very natural. I had very little down time and no bruising. I also had Dr. Karam inject facial fillers and got excellent results. He knows exactly where to do the injections and how deep to go with them. He is truly a genius at his craft. Dr. Karam has also surrounded himself with a great staff. They are all knowledgeable, friendly and extremely competent. I have been going to Tonia Cohn, aesthetician, for over six years and have been extremely happy with her professionalism and expertise. She always recommends procedures that are right for me and I see results. I wholeheartedly recommend both Dr. Karam and Tonia to friends knowing they too will get the results they seek. They're simply the best.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Karam and his staff exceeded my expectations from start to finish. Dr. Karam was thorough in explaining the procedures and the reasons behind his suggestions. I was completely at ease knowing I was in the best hands.

Face Lift

I received answers to my questions

Rhinoplasty

I felt very comfortable which was my #1 hope when choosing a doctor. I was also very pleased with the front desk staff and with Danielle who was very helpful with both scheduling my appointments and responding back to my emails very quickly. I had a great experience at my consultation.

Face Lift

I am very please with the Vertical Restore procedure. My fear was that I would look different after the surgery, but I look the same, just ten years younger. There was minor discomfort, as expected, but once the swelling went down, my down time was minimal. The best thing about this procedure is that I don't look like I have had work done.

Lip Lift

Very friendly office staff and nurses. They made me fell very comfortable

Neck Lift

I'm very happy with the way my neck looks. I just saw a before and after picture and, wow, what a difference. There is still some residual inflammation under my chin that Dr. Karam is working to resolve to my satisfaction. The staff is extremely friendly and does a great job. [Single best thing is...] the confidence I have in the workplace and in my social life.
