I did some research first and chose to go to a well known cosmetic surgeon's office. I remembered I had a consultation with him in Boston(Tuft Medical Center office) about a week before the procedure. During the procedure Dr. Kapadia Mitesh was very professional.

I'm a 41 yo guy who has a Slavic background and wanted eyelid surgery. I research many doctors in Boston and on the North Shore. After comparing costs and medical experience of the doctors researched, I went to Dr. Kapadia. My biggest concern with getting this surgery is that I would end up looking odd or fake. Dr. Kapadia's approach to this surgery is to make a "refreshed" and youthful look without making drastic alterations. The surgery, which included under eye Restylane injections to fill in deep dark circles, was done in just over an hour and in the office. He explained everything as he perfromed the surgery and I felt very comfortable throughout the process. After 2-3 weeks, I have to say I am very very happpy with the results. My friends and co-workers keep complimenting on how great of a job my doctor did. If you are looking to have eyelid surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Kapadia.

I would give him more stars if I could, he was wonderfull as was his receptionist. I picked him because he made me feel comfortable and I believe he was very honest with me and I was a bag of nerves walking in and was relieved walking out. He did a wonderfull job and gave me my eyes back! I feel so much better...I would recommend him to ANYONE who is considering having Restylane injections. I want to thank Dr. Kapadia for being so kind... and taking the time to answer my questions. I feel lucky to have found him in a sea of people that will just inject anyone with anything. The whole experience was great and I am very very happy with the results.

I chose him because he specializes solely on the eye area, and has tons of experience. I went with the best. I booked a consultation, and Dr. Kapadia's demeanor is so genuine, so warm. He really understood exactly what my concerns were, and guided me to the path that would lead to the best results. He didn't try to upsell me with any additional procedures, he recommended exactly what I needed, and nothing more. I'm now in LA, ready to pursue my acting career. I'm very excited to get new headshots done, and will no longer feel self conscious about how my eyes look on camera. Thank you so much Dr. Kapadia, your skill and attention to detail made me a much more confident person.

After tons of research and calling multiple offices, I decided to go to Dr. Kapadia at his Wellesley office. It was convenient since I have a teenager who is involved in every sport and has multiple practices almost 6 days a week in the afternoons. Did I mention, I also have a full time job! In any event, Dr. Kapadia made my appointment at 6:30 pm on a Tuesday evening which was a blessing for my hectic schedule.

He listens and give you the best service tailored to what you need. I came to Dr. Kapadia to get a filler and to correct some areas damaged by a different physician. He is the best in town and I would recommend him to anyone. Very professional and gives compassionate and fantastic services. #1

Dr. Kapadia was patient with all of my questions and I highly recommend him. He was honest in his consultation and didn't push me toward surgery like I thought I'd need. I found him while looking for "non-invasive undereye" options and like that he mainly focuses on plastic surgeries around eyes. I can't tell you enough how pleased I am with the outcome.

I don't know where to begin to express how grateful I am for Dr. Kapadia. He is amazing- an incredibly skilled artist- and he has the most professional, caring, kindest manner. Going to Dr. Kapadia is literally the opposite of the nightmare experience I had before finding him. I was going to a plastic surgeon who had no idea how to properly inject in and around the eye area. The other doctor’s office was like an injection factory- patients were shuttled in quickly and shuttled out, but more on that later. I was spending thousands of dollars going back every 6 weeks or so getting re-injected with restalyne in my tear trough area. That doctor said it should last at least a year so I couldn't figure out why I kept looking exhausted. This doctor's answer was that I was a 'non-responder' which was utterly maddening to me. After doing some research online, I made an appointment with Dr. Kapadia. I was interested in him because I really needed help with my eye bags and I saw that his specialty was eyes. My experience with him and his office couldn't be more different from the other office. His office has a beautiful, relaxed atmosphere. Donna, his assistant is very welcoming and helpful. Most importantly, Dr. Kapadia takes the time to listen and understand what I want. He explained that restalyne in the tear trough area should last a year or longer and that the other doctor was injecting and reinjecting me in the wrong places so it was actually making my eye bags look worse. Trust me when I say I've really learned first hand how important the skill of the doctor is when it comes to injections- especially around the delicate, expressive area of the eyes. Dr. Kapadia also explained important aspects of getting injections that the other doctor never did, such as not taking Advil for a week before, trying to sleep upright the first night after getting restalyne in the tear trough area. Prior to injecting, Dr. Kapadia applies numbing cream to all sensitive areas of the face he’s injecting (which the other doctor didn't use- ouch!). As far as follow up, he and his assistant Donna are incredibly helpful and responsive with any questions or issues I might have. Thanks to Dr. Kapadia’s fantastic skill and artistry I look better than I've ever looked in my entire life. I've always suffered with eye bags and now they are gone! He does all my injections- not just my eyes- botox in my forehead, restalyne and juvaderm for my eye area and upper cheeks and mouth creases. His work is very subtle and he never insists on any excessive treatments. I can't say enough about Dr. Kapadia- my experience with him has really changed my life for the better.

Referred by dermatologist. There are not enough words to say how happy I am with Dr. Kapadia. Right from the start his office staff is fabulous and comforting. He is wonderful. I was so at ease right from the start, he is pleasant and caring. I would recommend him highly. Also, never waited long, very considerate of your time in the waiting room. Will definitely go back to him. I was very leary about this procedure, but my dermatologist refered me and upon one meeting with Dr. Kapadia I was sold. He was patient and caring and put me at ease.

Dr Kapadia made me look 10 yrs younger! At my initial consultation he was thorough, no pressure. His office assistant Donna is wonderful - thoughtful, and makes you feel at ease - Dr Kapadia is interested in how you feel about yourself - it is about the patient not about him - would recommend him to anyone thinking about having eyelid surgery.

The doctor walked me through the process from beginning to end and I honestly had no surprises about the procedure or the recovery process. It did not involve a lot of pain or a lot of down time for me and the results are wonderful.

This practice is top notch from the first phone call to the final follow up visit. Both Dr. Kapadia and his office manager, Donna, guide you through the process so you know exactly what to expect during your procedure.

Dr Kapadia came highly recommended by a surgical opthalmologist. I received Restylane injections for under eye hollowness. Dr Kapadia certainly lived up to the review and beyond: he was patient, listened to ensure he was treating the areas that troubled me the most and addressed all of my questions. He made sure I was comfortable during the procedure and was conservative in his treatment to produce natural results. His assistant Donna is a gem: she is patient, well informed, and a true advocate of Dr. Kapadia's skills. I enthusiastically recommend him to anyone considering cosmetic eye procedures!

I found Dr. Kapadia and his office manager, Donna, personable, professional, and helpful from the initial consultation all the way through the surgery to the aftercare & follow-up. My surgery was such a pleasant experience. I can’t thank Dr. Kapadia enough for giving my eyes back their youthful appearance. I am amazed at the results he was able to achieve. It’s been a huge boost to my self confidence and now I only hear comments of how great I look. No kidding, I didn’t think having this surgery three months ago would make such a difference in my life, but it did in a very positive way. : ) I would highly recommend Dr. Kapadia to anyone that is considering corrective eye surgery or facial rejuvenations. He is truly an exceptionally gifted surgeon.

Dr. Kapadia was referred to me by my regular ophthalmologist. Dr. Kapadia spent a lot of time with me at the visit prior to surgery determining the best way to proceed to correct the asymmetry. Dr. Kapadia is an expert in his field; he is kind, reassuring and personable. I highly recommend him You will be in excellent hands, and I'm sure will be very pleased with the results.

Real self. I went to Dr Kapadia because I have loss of volume under my eyes. I have had juvederm before from other PS which I had researched for a while. The results in the past had been good but never 100% satisfying. I can seriously say that Dr Kapadia did an amazing job and I feel completely happy with the results. I feel like my older youthful self again and I am very happy. Bedside manners were excellent and comfortable atmosphere. His assistant was also very helpful and pleasant. I am definitely going back when I need to redo the procedure.
