"I found the entire process from initial outreach and questions to my procedure consultation, surgery and recovery to be incredibly professional. Dr. Karam has honed his extensive surgical skills and created a support team that is extremely talented. I would recommend him to anyone considering Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery or Plastic Surgery."

"Beyond disappointing and costly experience. Do not be fooled by the talk and charm because when something goes wrong he will not offer a revision and blame anything and anyone but himself. I wish I went somewhere else, but not too late for others. Please do your research, he is by no means the best."

"I can not say enough good things about Dr. Karam. I’m 55 and was wasting money on noninvasive procedures that did nothing to help my sagging skin. Luckily I found Dr. Karam on YouTube. I watched all of his videos and realized he is a master at what he does. I learned so much about skin, procedures etc…. After much research I decided he was the doctor I needed to go to. Not only is he top of his field but he is extremely passionate about what he does and gives individual care for each of his patients. At my pre op appointments he took time and studied my face to give his opinion on what he thought I needed and what I didn’t. I flew cross country to San Diego for a Vertical Restore and fat transfer. I’m so happy I did. I’m 5 months out and look like myself but 10 years younger. I’m also using the trifecta along with Polish and my skin is incredible- it glows. Tashia, Casey, Jake, Stacie, Taylor and the entire staff are phenomenal. They take their time with you making sure you ...
have all your questions answered. I have total confidence in Dr. Karam and his staff. They all took care of me during the process and made me feel special. I would not go anywhere else. "

"Dr. Karam: he is a highly skilled surgeon and an artist. He made me look refreshed and rejuvenated without looking worked on. The staff: helpful and attentive. Always available to answer any questions. His office: lovely, well appointed and a relaxing setting for beautification. The abundance of patient education on Dr. Karam’s Instagram and YouTube channel is a testament to the pride he takes his work and his determination to have amazing outcomes. As the videos say, you won’t see the ultimate results for about a year, and mine are worth every penny and every bit of initial down time. "

"Great smooth overall experience. Worth every penny. Dr Karam’s prowess is proven in the photos, etc., but even more than that, I think he deeply respects his patients. He respects women and helps them achieve beautiful, natural results. Consistently. "

"Dr. Karam and his staff are amazing. I spent a lot of time researching to find the right doctor, and I could not be more pleased with my results. Communication with Dr. Karam, his office staff and nursing staff was excellent, and questions were answered promptly and thoroughly. I knew what to expect at all times. The wait time for surgery may be long, but it is well worth it! "

"I researched for a long time to find the best doctor to have my surgery and I am extremely grateful to have found and trusted doctor Karam with it. Doctor Karam and his staff exceeded my expectations. They were closely involved and supported me from weeks prior to my vertical restore procedure to weeks post operation. The material and videos shared with me prior to the surgery, made me well prepared to go through that journey. I didn’t feel pain and had minimal bruising post operations, even went grocery shopping in 10 days. Dr. Karam is super talented and attentive. I’m so happy with my results and I thank Dr. Karam and his fantastic staff for it. "

"Great experience all around with Dr. Karam and I can’t believe how fast I healed! I attribute it to the vitamin regime he provides pre and post Op as well as his incredible skill. I was most worried about the healing process and needn’t have been!"

"I had consultations with several very highly rated doctors and did extensive research before I chose Dr Karam. I'm now 3 months out and incredibly happy with the results, I look natural and young! Thank you for turning back the clock, I'm so ecstatic with the results."

"Dr. Karam is the best plastic surgeon I have ever met, he does magic with his hands. My surgery was a few months ago and my changes have been really incredible. I recommend him to everyone who wants to look much younger and natural."

"I had a Halo laxer treatment today, but have come all the way from Santa Fe, New Mexico to see Dr. Karam and his amazing staff on multiple occasions over the years. Tonya did the procedure today and she was so knowledgeable and personable. An organization reflects its up line and everyone I had contact with was just lovely! Can’t recommend this group enough. "

"Dr. Karam and his entire team are amazing! I was so well taken care of from my first inquiry call to the office, through the surgical procedure, the post op and ending with the follow up. The surgical wait time is pretty long, but trust me, you will not regret your decision. Thank you Dr. Karam, I love my results"

"I'm so happy with my decision to travel and see Dr Karam and the team at Carmel Valley Surgery Center. Every interaction with the staff was pleasant and nurses and Dr. Karam made me feel at ease with the decisions made together. My procedure was painless, recovery easy (though took a little longer than I expected with my own expectations and readiness for others to see me) and my final results are better than I expected. I not only look like myself again (with a better jawline than I ever had,) but I feel like my best self!"

"Dr. Amir Karam genuinely cares for his patients, a genius with outstanding quality of his work! He is a skillful artist and have a positive demeanor all throughout. His team made sure the patient is comfortable and have everything you need possible. I cannot enough thank Dr Karam for making me look as young as I feel! Without any doubt, Dr Karam is highly recommended! A must try too is Trifecta, an all-in-one skincare system created by Dr Karam himself!"

"Wonderful experience with Carmel Valley Surgery Center. Dr Amir Karam is a world renowned incredible surgeon and his work speaks for itself ! His artistic results are shown throughout his pre/post shots that are true untouched and I say this from my results and the many relatives that underwent different procedures with him. The staff is terrific, knowledgeable, sensitive and informative. They simply haven't left any stones unturned during Pre and post op visits, phone calls... Follow ups....I truly felt I was a family member to each and everyone that I came in contact with. Pre-op calls on Sunday, lengthy conversations put me at ease prior to my procedure, personal cell phones provided and yes I did take advantage of that, all my calls and texts were answered instantaneously any day any time pre/post procedure. I was welcome in the office anytime I asked for assistance cleaning up areas worked on, a simple issue that needed their attention, "just come by and will take a look" , they ...
even prescribed a needed anti inflamatory, picked it up from pharmacy and personally delivered it to my place of stay so they don't inconvenience me. Thank you to all the staff especially Jake, Abigail, Taylor, Nurse Stacey Nurse Tasha and the many others... I have recommended Dr Karam even before my operation. Just simply by doing my research and meeting other world renowned plastic surgeons, my relatives have had procedures done by him and I am just on my 7th day and could not be more thrilled with my results. Far exceeded my expectations. Without a doubt worth the travel whether you are considering coming from any part of the USA or International "

"Dr Karam’s staff is the BEST! You never feel rushed, they are always available for any and all questions (pre and post procedure)! Tina, one of Dr Karam’s coordinators, makes you feel relaxed and takes away any apprehensive fears or anxiety you might have. I can truly say I always enjoy going to Dr Karam’s office! Dr Karam’s knowledge and gift of artistry is amazing! I will be sending all my family and friends to Dr. Karam!"
