Ratings for Dr. Amir M. Karam
I recently saw Dr. Karam for possible 2-inch abdominal scar revision surgery. Pretty straightforward procedure, easily accessible area. He and his staff seemed very nice and he seemed knowledgeable regarding the possible surgery. What I wanted to make prospective patients aware of was the outrageous fee quoted for the surgery. I went to 4 other board-certified, well-known, well-experienced plastic surgeons as well. None of them quoted me a fee higher than $1200, everything included. Dr. Karam's office quoted me $5250 for the same exact procedure. Are you kidding me? I'm sure he's probably a very talented plastic surgeon, but so are the others I saw.
This is a great Dentist! Amir has a very kind, gentle touch. He was very informative and he took the time to listen and explain what needed to be done and why. The pricing was fair and he didn't try to rip me off with unnecessary procedures. Not to mention the scenery was amazing; floor to ceiling windows with an incredible view of the city. I highly recommend Dr. Amir!
Dr Karam is the best facial plastic surgeon in San Diego county. I had consultations with many other surgeons before i had my rhinoplasty by him. He did an excellent job and made me feel very comfortable, i was so nervous about having the procedure. Because of him i feel so much more confident. He is the best!:)
Dr. Karam is a very professional and understanding doctor. He listens well and I felt he had a thorough understanding of what I was looking for after my consult. Next, he has an impecable eye and made recommendations that would give an overall better result in terms of my full face fat transfer. He was also very clear about what could and could not be done (in terms of limitations, i.e. 40 year old patients may not look 20 after a face fat transfer) and he and his staff were very coordial as well. In terms of the results of the procedure, the swelling was not bad to begin with and lasted exactly two weeks, as he stated (which is not long considering the procedure). Further, the result was exacty what I was looking for (perhaps a little better in some areas). I could not have asked for a better doctor for this procedure.
I had researched and consulted with five plastic surgeons in San diego for blepharoplasty and I found Dr. Amir Karam the best surgeon to do my upper and lower eyelid surgery. He explained to me what needs to be done, and rightway I trusted Dr. Karam that my expectations will be achieved. I showed Dr. Karam my photos when I was 30 years old, my eyes looked brilliant, tantalizing and beautiful. I am now 60 years old and everytime I looked at myself in the mirror with my droopy eyelids and dark eyebags it made me depressed. I looked tired and haggard all the time. After my eye surgery with Dr. Karam, my eyes looked brilliant, tantalizing and beautiful again like when I was in my 30's!!! Dr. Karam can turn back the time, I am very happy with the result of my blepharoplasty!! I feel young again!! I will go back for a midlift and fat transfer! Dr. Karam's staff is very professional, caring and makes you feel comfortable. Thank you Dr. Karam, Leanna, Ruthie, Deanna and Cheryl. **LBRNY**

I had two procedures with Dr. Karam and am very pleased with the results. I felt that Dr. Karam gave me his honest opinion and understood my concerns. The entire staff is wondeful and I will continue to go back. I also would highly reccommend his office to anyone considering comestic procedures. Sincerely MRH
I adore Dr. Karam and am so grateful to him. He performed cosmetic surgery on me 2 years ago and I am so happy with the results. I continue to go back to him for wrinkle fillers. Not only is he an incredibly talented doctor and artist, he is one of the nicest doctors I have ever met - he really listens to you and understands your needs and desires. Dr. Karam is very careful to always make you look as beautiful and natural as possible. His staff is very nice also. I highly recommend him!
I chose Dr. Karam because his before and after photographs reveal very little "work" having been done but rather a refreshed, rested, natural result. His staff is always cheerful and willing to answer questions. Dr. Karam makes himself available to his patients before and after surgery so you never feel like you're alone out there.
