Facelifts do not last long. More selling than results.
San Diego, CA |
Dr. Karam did a rhinoplasty/septoplasty on me several years ago. I remain very unhappy with the result. As reported, I too was shocked he was not even going to see me when I was there to have my bandages off - only did he show up after I insisted. Today I look like I had a broken nose that did not set properly. He is charming but don't let that fool you. I am seeking revision surgery elsewhere.

Did a horrible job with my upper eyelids. They're asymmetrical and my revision occulo surgeon laughed and said he left in the fat pads. I look ridiculous. Dr. Karam never even came when I got my stitches out. He did the job, all charm and ooze, then left and I never heard from him again, even when I called to ask why my eyes looked so funny. I just had to wait the nurse said. Well, the more I waited the weirder they looked with the fat pads sticking out. Just a sleezy person & cost a lot to fix!
