Great Staff and Doctor. I was referred by a friend and I am extremely happy I made Dr.Karam my surgeon. He is kind, caring and knowledgeable. He wont sugar coat or try to sell you on something. His Vertical Restore procedure has brought me back to my youth!

Dr Karam and staff are amazing. I am so happy with the results from my lip lift. The recovery was very easy and I could not be more pleased with the results.

If you are a mature woman, like me, have had past, unfortunate cosmetic surgery experiences; are skeptical and afraid to repair or have any more surgeries, please have a consultation with Dr. Amir Karam. If you are just considering the possibility of your first surgery, do yourself a favor and talk to him, he actually listens to you. I honestly believe he is one of the best in his field, focusing primarily on facial cosmetic, plastic & reconstructive surgery.

Everyone I encountered was friendly and helpful. I came in for a liquid rhinoplasty consultation and was able to have the procedure done right after. I am very happy with the results and how quickly I was able to have the procedure done.

Excellent care and compassion while going through and healing from the surgical procedures. Dr. Karam and his staff are the most professional and friendly people I have ever encountered in a medical office. Dr. Karam's skill and knowledge of plastic surgery procedures is incredible and he deseserves to be rated as one of the best in his field in the San Diego area.

I am only two months post op so I do not have the complete final results yet, however, so far I am exceptionally pleased with how my nose and neck look after my procedures.

From the front desk to office nurses and Dr Karam, you could not ask for more personalized attention to your needs and detail. They have been great and I could not have pre-planned a better complete experience.
