Dr. Karimi is the best! I couldn't have ask for a better overall experience. Dr. Karimi is very kind, realistic, and skilled-- my results are very NATURAL. Moreover, he personally made a reassuring post-operative (septorhinoplasty) house call. From the first consultation, he and his staff were comforting and honest about all aspects of the surgery. It's also comforting to know Dr. Karimi works in a world-class facility with state-of-art-equipment and expert anesthesiologists. Dr. Karimi is an exceptionally gifted and talented facial plastic surgeon and I would absolutely recommend Dr. Karimi to any and everyone considering this life-changing experience!

Dr. Karimi is truly a gem. I have seen many different doctors and plastic surgeons and I can truly say that Dr. Karimi is a RARE find. He is kind, gentle, compassionate and loved by his patients. He also has giften hands as evidenced by my face and necklift and lower lid blepharoplasty result and his before and after gallery. Even though I was nervous before my procedure I felt completely comfortable moving forward since I would email Dr. Karimi and he would respond to me very quickly. After the procedure he came to my house to check on me which was amazing. Even weeks and now months since the procedure he has been extremely accessible and responsive. If you are considering a facial cosmetic procedure make sure you consult with Dr. Karimi first. You won't regret it!

He is an absolute gem and has a major edge over others in his field. He is trained in techniques (like micro-cannulation) that allow for AMAZING results with very little dis-comfort. He has an incredible eye and understands how to go about working with you such that your result is natural and beautiful. He listens, is incredibly patient and I would send every single one of my family and friends there should they ever need him.

Dr. Karimi, MD is simply the BEST!!!! Even as a model I am not perfect but getting the eye bags treatment definitely helps a lot when I don't get enough sleep because of an early call time for a photo shoot. Photographers love that they don't need to photo shop under my eyes. It is so nice to walk in a doctor's office and not have to wait so long either, his receptionists are friendly and quick as well. His staff follows up quick with phone calls and emails. I definitely would recommend him to anyone who needs a cosmetic treatment because it is painless and his personality is so pleasant and friendly. Other doctors not so much :/ they're too high on their ego, as for Dr. Karimi he's down to earth yet professional and makes me feel comfortable every single time I have a treatment done. :) Thank you Dr. Karimi for being such a pleasant and wonderful doctor!

My experience with Dr.Karimi and his staff was amazing. My procedure was easier than I ever could have expected. He went above and beyond to make sure that my entire experience, from my first appointment to my post-op follow up appointments, went perfectly, I could not have asked for a better Doctor.

Dr. Karimi is one of the best doctors I have ever met. He made me feel so comfortable about everything and quickly reassured me that everything was going to be okay. He has a fantastic bedside manner, knowledge and expertise, and is definitely skilled! But his honesty was the best trait. He truthfully told me what I needed and would be beneficial and in my best interests, instead of the other way around like most doctors. Dr. Karimi is great with his responses, easily reachable by email and phone. I was also able to set an appointment for a consultation very quickly. The consultation with Dr. Karimi was very informative, I did not feel rushed or pressured and I could not be happier with the results. Dr. Karimi's technique for fillers is not only effective but it is bruiseless so no one that day could tell I had something done. I feel like a new woman and my dark circles are gone thanks to Dr. Karimi!

Dr. Karimi is one of those people who you feel like you've known for years after just minimal time of knowing him. His bedside manner is five stars. He put me at ease with my anxiety, really gave me the appropriate amount of time without rushing anything, really explained everything and definitely someone I will continue to go to for my cosmetic treatments as well as my ENT issues. He is double board certified! Smart man. The facility was beautiful and his staff was the friendliest - if I had any questions or concerns, Dr. Karimi or his staff got back to me promptly.

Dr. Karimi is an exceptional doctor. He really loves what he does and it shows. He takes the time to explain everything and really listen to your concerns and expectations. I had a lower face lift, neck lift and laser resurfacing done all at the same time and it was painless and sooo worth it. I look great. Not fake, just way more youthful and happy which is how I feel too. Dr. Karimi has a special gift. Any procedure he does from fillers to surgery, he does gently and naturally. Naturally is the key here. He will not over correct and make you look scary and artificial. You can totally trust him. Dr. Karimi is a great guy. He won't make you feel like you need to have work done or pressured to have it done immediately. He is there to guide you and make sure you are comfortable with any choices you make. Go see him. You won't regret it.

From my primary care. Dr Karimi and his staff are absolutely terrific! They are very friendly, attentive, and caring. Dr. Karimi has a wonderful bed side manner -- and is great at explaining things in an easy to understand way. He really cares about his patients and provides the best level of care I've ever experienced. I had my deviated septum surgery with him - and I really loved that he followed up after my surgery to make sure my recovery was going well. Plus he was available via phone or email to answer any questions or concerns as they arose both before and after my surgery. I was really impressed by his level of care, and when I had to have some pre-cancerous cells removed on my face, I chose to go back to Dr. Karimi -- because I knew I would be in good hands. For anyone looking for an ENT or plastic surgeon -- look no further. Dr. Karimi is the best!

I was referred to his office by another doctor (not a plastic surgeon). He is not only very knowledgeable and competent but also really nice and caring as was everyone else in his office. Plus, his work is very competitively priced. If you live on the west side of LA, definitively consider getting a consultation (free!) from him if you're considering a facelift or other facial cosmetic procedure. In short, Dr. Karimi did an exceptional job and I would highly recommend him with no hesitation.

I can't stop smiling, my new lips are natural and amazing... Everything was clean and so professional. Staff were caring and attentive to all my needs. I would only see Dr. Karimi for these type of procedures.
