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.

I did research on Google to find a doctor that specializes in eyelids ONLY.

He knows what he is doing and how to use the product. He saw the potential in my face.

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!

Dr. Kapadia takes the time to listen to me, and I'm very comfortable with him. I never feel rushed. I trust him in deciding where and how much product to use.

Dr Kapadia is very responsive to his patients. He makes himself available at all times if you have any questions or concerns.

First off I did my research on Restylane for the eye trough, At the age of 35 I noticed I started to get those dreaded circles under my eyes and now I am about to turn 50 next month and I just couldn't stand looking at them anymore. I found Dr. Kapadia and reviewed all his services and treatments with great reviews, I knew this was the doctor I wanted to see. I live an hour and a half away from the office but I just couldn't find someone better on paper. He was so kind and answered every question I had inquired about. I was pleasantly welcomed to the office. I didn't have to wait in the office but 5 minutes tops. I was very comfortable with Dr Kapadia and his staff that I would give him 10 stars if I could. Very very happy! So glad I found Dr. Kapadia.

I have never given a doctor a hug. After my procedure, I gave this guy one. He's that good. He is kind, patient, all his credentials check out and he is incredibly skilled in his work. We discussed what I wanted during the consult (nothing extreme...nothing taut looking or "pulled" -- just removing the excess skin and giving me a natural, rested look). The procedure is in office and takes appoximately one hour. Is it fun? No. But he plays the music you like and if you choose to chit-chat his voice is very soothing and calm. He will also walk you thru it, if you wish which I found helpful so that I could mentally pace myself through it. The results are wonderful! I can't believe how much time I would spend cursing my eyelids every time I looked in the mirror or saw a picture of myself. It was worth every penny to not only NOT SPEND precious time thinking about it but when I do see myself to actually like what I see!

Dr Kapadia is amazing at what he does. My results are fantastic and much better than others who I know that have had the procedure done elsewhere. My recovery was also much quicker and easier. In addition to his skill as a surgeon he is also kind, easy to talk to, and adept at making you feel at ease and comfortable. His office staff is also super nice and efficient.

I went to see Dr. Kapadia for a blepharoplasty consultation and Botox injections. He was very kind, answered all of my questions and gave me honest input about what services would accomplish the results I was seeking. He even suggested another physician to handle a specific procedure. I could tell immediately that he cared not only about my satisfaction and care, but he took great pride in his own work. His assistant was professional and very helpful in finding a convenient time for my appointments. I had no wait in the office and the doctor's schedule was flexible enough to accommodate my own. Dr. Kapadia was a warm, intelligent physician and I am pleased to see his reputation as an excellent doctor is well deserved.

Dr. Kapadia is extremely professional and has a great bedside manner. I was initially apprehensive about the procedure and wanted to be on the conservative side and Dr, Kapadia listened to my concerns and also made helpful suggestions about what he thought would work for my face. I am extremely happy with the results. I have received many compliments about looking refreshed; however, no one can pinpoint what has been changed. This was exactly the outcome I was looking for! I would highly recommend Dr. Kapadia.

I had been going to Dr Kapadia for Botox and Juvederm for some time so there was no question when I finally found the nerve and time to do upper and lower eyelid surgery, he was the one I would trust. With injections, he had proven to be genuinely kind, always took time to explain what he was doing and the anticipated results, and always achieved a "natural look", not overdone. Having this experience with injections, I was confident I would get the same with the surgery. The surgery was a terrific experience. The procedure was a piece of cake. I never experienced any pain or discomfort and never even took Tylenol after I got home. Swelling and bruising were pronounced, as Dr K advised they would be, but I was driving within a couple of days and able to go out with makeup and sunglasses. Most importantly, I'm thrilled with the results. My eyes look completely natural, only "better". The skin is not tight or pulled, just without the under eye puffiness that I had before and no droopiness on my upper lids. People keep telling me I look younger or I look great, but it's clear they can't put their finger on what's different. It's been several months and my scars are undetectable. I highly recommend Dr Kapadia. He's a great surgeon, genuinely nice person, his assistant Donna is wonderful, and they schedule appointments so that they run on time and don't keep patients waiting. Great practice for injections or surgery.

As I stated above in my review of the procedure Dr. Mitesh Kapadia was simply amazing! He explained everythiing he was going to do during the procedure step by step. It was not painful in any way a couple of needles here and there and felt nothing. He said it would take about an hour and it was exactly that not one minute over. I was actually driving the next day and my eyes healed extremely fast i hear everyone is different. I had no swelling I did what he suggested iced it and minimal bruising. I also did some fillers as well and was very pleased with the results. I can't say enough about him but I will say he is one amazing doctor! Thank you Dr. Kapadia! Deborah W. Arlington, Ma.

I highly recommend Dr. Kapadia. I came to Dr. Kapadia for Botox between the eyes and across my forehead and Restylane under my eyes and in my cheeks. The results are amazing. I can't stop looking in the mirror. Dr. Kapadia is great. He has a calm and kind bedside manner. He is knowledgable and he does not push you. I was very nervous about the pain from the needles. Dr. Kapadia was great and patient with me. With numbing cream and ice I couldn't even feel the needles! It has been a great experience. I am so happy with the results and I have recommended him to my friends. I will be continuing my treatments with Dr. Kapadia. Donna, the receptionist, is wonderful too!
