5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

My Doctor for LIFE

I found Dr. Karimi after meeting with 4 different doctors before him for a complex revision following 2 prior botched rhino/septoplasties. He was the only doctor I met with of the 5 who immediately made me feel at ease, and conveyed a level of confidence and expertise that I hadn't felt from any of the others. Moreover, at no point did I feel that he simply was trying to convince me to go with...

The BEST Plastic Surgeon I've ever had (and I've had a few!)

Dr. Karimi is an ARTIST and saved my face. I came to him after years of hopelessness having been botched in a prior surgery. He not only was able to reverse the issue in the delicate area of my eyes but I now look like I did 10 years ago, but better. Not only that, but he is truly warm, empathetic, funny, kind and caring--everything every doctor should be but most aren't. I feel blessed I...

Fabulous Experience

I had a neck lift and face lift with Dr. Karimi. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give him a 100. I look 10 years younger and refreshed. Dr. Karimi's is like an angel when it comes to his bedside manner. I felt very comfortable from the first visit, sugary, and follow up appointments. Dr. Karimi's staff is very cordial, and helpful. I recommend Dr. Karimi, and the experience I had was great.

Dr. Karimi and his staff at Rejuva Medical Aesthetics are as professional as they get! Beyond that, they are warm, welcoming, and personable.

I couldn't be happier with my natural results! I still look and feel like...

The personal attention and professional expertise that...
