I cannot recommend Dr. Karimi highly enough. He performed a septo-rhinoplasty on me and was incredibly conscientious, responsive and comforting about the whole process. (I had a deviated septum that was blocked on one side and my nose appeared twisted to one side at the tip -- so it was an issue of asymmetry, which all my reading suggested can sometimes be more complicated to correct). I'm not a doctor, but I have a bunch of them in my family on the East Coast and they all had lots of opinions about the procedure :) One of them is a plastic surgeon who recommended two LA-based surgeons that he knew. After visiting them and looking at their work, I just felt like they weren't a good fit for me; to my eye, the rhinoplasties they showed me were not natural enough, and was a little put off by the overly sales-y approach of their staff. I ended up finding Dr. Karimi on my own based on extensive internet research and reading the reviews by his patients. After my initial visit, I knew that he was the right surgeon for me. A few days before my surgery, I started to feel concerned that I was going to come out of the procedure looking too nose-jobby. Dr. Karimi was at a conference or something, but had given me his cell phone number in the event that I needed to reach him. I ended up texting him to just restate that I was hoping for a really natural result . He reassured me that he understood, and delivered on that promise. Now, it's almost six months later and I am still amazed with his skills. I can breathe better and I look like an improved version of myself. Two of my closest friends -- and also my mom and husband -- said that I looked better but they wouldn't have known I had a rhinoplasty if I hadn't told them. From what I've gathered in all my extensive research, it takes a great deal of talent to change a face so subtly. Remarkably, Dr. Karimi is also a really kind, generous person as well. I'm so glad I went with my gut and chose him as my surgeon.

My rhinoplasty experience with Dr. Karimi.... Let me start off by saying that this review is coming from someone who has done her homework. I have done my research of surgeons and procedures for years (yes, plural) before I had my consult with Dr. Karimi. From my first consultation with him to my last follow up, nothing was short from perfect. Compared to other doctors I’ve consulted with, Karimi stood out the most with his level of expertise, understanding, and genuineness. My surgery went smoother than expected. I had the LIGHTEST shade of yellow bruising for two days— basically no bruising. I only had to take 3 days off from work.My overall results couldn’t be any more perfect. There were no complications and my nose looks how I always dreamt of, beautiful and natural as hell. Dr Karimi has a wonderful, smart, and professional staff that helped made everything so smooth. A pretty penny definitely worth spending!! I definitely recommend Dr Karimi to anyone seeking a rhinoplasty procedure.
