plastic surgeon testimonials
I always swore that I would never have plastic surgery—I’m not even 30 yet!!! My friends kept telling me that I looked angry and upset all the time because I always furrow my eyebrows. I also noticed that I was starting to get wrinkles in my forehead and around my eyes. Dr. Karimi did my botox (he used very little amount) and the results are amazing—no one can tell I have had anything done but I look more relaxed and happy now. Also, I am looking younger because there are no more wrinkles around my eyes. I was afraid it would hurt but it really didn’t—Dr. Karimi really took the time to make sure I was comfortable.

Dr. Karimi made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. He made sure I was informed and took the time to see what I was looking for. He is professional and did not treat me like I was just another procedure. His style is one that highlights natural beauty so that the procedures don't make you look "fake." Many physicians or physician extenders who perform cosmetic procedures take an "inject and next" approach, but Dr. Karimi takes the whole person into consideration. I recommend Dr. Karimi to patients, family and friends for all their facial plastic surgery/cosmetic needs as well as any consultations related to ear, nose and throat concerns. When it comes to your face, you want an expert in the facial plastic surgery field, and Dr. Karimi is the one to go see!

Dr. Karimi is extremely personable and will give you his professional opinion keeping in mind your desires. I highly recommend Dr. Karimi if you are interested in a cosmetic procedure. He will make you feel at ease and is very easy to contact and responsive via email.

Within a few minutes of meeting Dr. Karimi, I knew I had met a very special doctor. He is a good listener, who was completely focused on what I wanted out of my botox and filler treatments. His style is to highlight natural beauty, and he was able to show me many before and after photos that spoke to that. He is patient, kind and compassionate. He is easy to reach via e-mail, and quickly responded to all my questions before and after the procedures. Best of all, he is knowledgeable and amazing at what he does. I can confidently say that is the best facial plastic in Los Angeles.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Karimi! He has the most patience and bedside manner and incredible skills! I was having anxiety over getting botox and fillers for the first time. You'd think it would be an easy decision living in LA but I was terrified my face would look different. Not only was Dr. Karimi's work natural and beautiful I want more and my anxiety is gone! I look refreshed like I was just a few years back. His magic was beyond worth! I have a refreshed, happy, beautiful look. My friends and clients ask if I've been on vacation because I look so refreshed and natural!

Dr. Karimi is one of the best physicians out there. He is generous and honest. Not only does he have the best bed side manner, but he is also very smart and talented! I originally came in for a laser consult to improve the appearance of my acne scarring. Dr Karimi suggested an innovative new technique called microneedling. I can't tell you how many compliments I've gotten on my skin since I started treatment. My skin is glowing! Thanks to Dr. Karimi's honesty and technique, I have great results for a fraction of the cost of expensive lasers. I have already recommended him to several of my friends and continue to see him for all my cosmetic needs. He's the BEST!

Amazing would not come close to describe Dr. Karimi. His grand knowledge and his professionalism goes beyond words. His expertise is apparent when he assesses your face -- he sees all of the subtle things that can be improved while still maintaining your natural look. Needless to say, I was utterly impressed. Ever since seeing Dr. Karimi, I have a hard time to trust my face in the hands of somebody else.

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!

OmidP – Los Angeles, CA
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!

JM Brentwood – Brentwood, CA
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!

Sam G. - Los Angeles, CA
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.

educational, precise, fun, relaxed, peaceful, painless...... assured I get the results i want!

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 am so happy with my visit with Dr. Karimi. He is gentle and so caring. He is amazing skilled doctor..... I feel likely new lip enhancement.... 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.

3 things no one needs to know: 1. How much money I've spent on shoes 2. How many boyfriends I've had 3. Whether I've had work done on my face The first two are fait accompli, #3 is still in my control, which was important as I needed a little help - nothing crazy - nothing obvious - just a little refreshening. I was looking tired and overworked. I was petrified as it was my first time considering fillers. I've seen people ruin their faces. I wanted people to think I had returned from vacation, not that I had turned into a fish. Fortunately, after visiting 5 other surgeons, I found Dr. Karimi, a true artist. Dr. Karimi doesn't make his patients look the same -- check out the work of other physicians (especially east of the 405) to see what I mean. His approach is about highlighting an individual's natural beauty - committed to the notion that less is more. I had no bruising, minimal if any swelling, and I feel fabulous. And no one needs to know.

Dr Karimi has a very calming and wonderful personality. He is very knowledgable, highly intelligent, yet very respectful to the patient. All of this gave me a real sense of trust in him. As a result, I added on two items that I had not planned on. I had wanted some Botox for the deep frown lines between my forehead. But he also suggested some Belotera for the under eye bags and Restalin for my cheeks. Since it was my birthday and I am in my mid-60's, I decided to give all a try. It was amazing. All looked TOTALLY natural. No more angry look in-between my brows, the bags were greatly diminished, and I was astonished to see myself look years younger with the high cheekbones that I had lost with age, time and gravity! I had forgotten how I had looked as a younger woman. None of this was painful, and there was no recovery time. What more could you ask for? He is also a great ENT doc with excellent advise about the ears and the sinuses - totally current and up to date.

Dr. Karimi is the BEST! He and his staff were comforting and honest about all aspects of the surgery. My results are very natural and I couldn't be happier! 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!

I was initially nervous to undergo a facelift, necklift and lower eyelid blepharoplasty. However, I felt instantly reassured by Dr. Karimi's calm demeanor and confidence. With regards to pain, I was amazed at how little pain I had after the procedure. Dr. Karimi did a HOUSECALL (who does that anymore??) after the procedure to review post-procedure instructions and to check on me. I felt no pain at all under my eyes at any time after the procedure. I was having lunch with my girlfriends just a little over a week after the procedure and they could not believe how wonderful I looked. 4 months out from surgery, I look absolutely fantastic. Everyone from my own family, my hair dresser and even my other doctors (even a plastic surgeon!) have admired my results. I couldn't be happier!

I couldn't be more impressed with Dr. Karimi. I've suffered for years trying to manage issues I had with facial imbalance/deficiencies and saw some of the most highly-regarded facial plastic surgeons in LA/Bev Hills. Dr. Karimi accomplished for me in 2 visits what the others couldn't properly address in 5 years. He is super talented, meticulously trained (amazing, advanced techniques) and is an absolute joy to deal with. He is patient, kind, but most importantly has an incredible eye and gift. My results were amazing, subtle, and quite frankly I feel better than I have in years. My self-confidence is back and that makes a huge difference in my every day. I am incredibly grateful and feel blessed to have found him. I would most definitely recommend (and insist on) him to any one of my friends or family should they ever need it.

Life is wonderful! This was not the case a few months ago when I felt that my lack of ability to breath was in control of my whole life! My change of life experience started with Dr. Karimi and the wonderful caring staff. The reconstructive procedure to open up my sinus passages was done with me understanding every step of the way well before the procedure. The intensive follow-up was accomplished with as little discomfort as possible. His personal care and dealings far exceeded anything that I had experienced in the recent past. His caring extended to him referring me to other doctors that he felt I should be under their care. After years of "playing the game according to the rules" with disastrous results, I finally feel confident in the medical care I'm now receiving. Thanks you Dr. KK for being the guide to a better life for me.

All I can say is wow! Dr. Karimi is a fantastic facial facial plastic surgeon. I went to see him for Botox injections and he took the time to explain exactly what went into it and how the results would look. His gentle hands and meticulous technique ensured that I felt almost nothing. The results took a few days to set in and it looks perfect! My frown and forehead lines are gone, and if I really want to show expression, I just have to squeeze a little harder and I can move them. This makes for the most natural result I can ask for. I can avoid wrinkles and still have movement if I really wanted to - no one can tell that I got Botox done, which is the way it should be. He even followed up personally with a phone call. What a great doctor, I highly, highly recommend him!

I do not usually take the time to write reviews about physicians, but Dr. Karimi deserves the most praise of any doctor I have ever been to! As a young female interested in botox and facial fillers, I went into Dr. Karimi's office not knowing what to expect. He took SO much time to explain all the options and outcomes to me, and then he did a personal consultation to find the best plan for me. Since my first visit a couple of years ago, I have returned to him to maintain my amazing botox and filler results. He is absolutely the best doctor, and makes me feel like he has all the time in the world to spend on my appointment. I have already recommended him to family and close friends, who agree that he does wonderful work--I feel that my face looks fresh, and at least 10 years younger!

As a pretty average guy, I was fairly skeptical about getting any cosmetic work done, and I'm certainly not a fan of "going to the doctor" more than I absolutely need to. So I was less than enthusiastic about having botox work performed. However, Dr. Karimi was simply phenomenal! First, for a procedure based entirely on needles, he made it painless with his method and approach. Second, and most importantly, within a few days I saw results, and wow! My forehead is smooth and my crows' feet have flown the coup. And best of all, the whole procedure only lasted a few minutes and I could tell by his follow-up care that he genuinely takes pride in his work. I absolutely recommend Dr. Karimi!
