My under eye hollows had made me very self conscious ever since I was a teenager but the idea of getting anything injected into my face terrified me. After doing a lot of research and talking to many different surgeons and dermatologists I decided to move forward with Dr. Kapadia. Still, I felt very nervous the day of the procedure. To my surprise, the procedure was painless. Dr. Kapadia... more
I've always wanted to try a lip filler on my top lip because its soo thin and the distance between my nose and lip seems large to me. I had a previous breast augmentation with Dr. Darrow so I trust him completely with any future procedures. Dr. Darrow was excellent in explaining the different fillers and what to expect after the injections which put my mind at ease, since I was a little... more
I've been a patient of Dr Hricko's for about six years. I've had a number of procedures done by Dr Hricko, including fillers. He has always advised me appropriately and my appearance has continued to improve. He never pushes me to do anything, but his suggestions have always been exactly what I needed to give me a more youthful appearance. Advanced Cosmetic Surgery is a very welcoming... more
I have had many lip injections. Restylane was the worst. It looked good the first couple of days but then it started to become uneven on the right side of my lip. My Doctor put more in to correct it. It has nothing to do with the doctor; it could be my body quickly metabolizing this filler. It is also bumpy. People close to me even noticed the bumps and I had one bump that couldn't me massaged... more
Had a great experience with both the procedure and Dr. Kapadia. I couldn't be happier. I've always had hollowing under my eyes, but since having my son two years ago, the lack of sleep combined with my natural hollowness was really adding up to make my face look, in my opinion, droopy and much older than it is. After extensive research, I went to Dr. Kapadia, visiting him in his Wellesley,... more
I cannot express how happy I am with this procedure and Dr. Kapadia. I am 30 years old/female Caucasian with Lebanese heritage. I have suffered since birth from deep hollow under eye bags. The tear troughs were just getting deeper as I aged and I needed to so something about it. I got 2 vials of restylane injections in my tear troughs and wow....no makeup needed!!!! I look younger, awake, my... more
I was a bit concern....did research and there is good things and bad things, I called a couple of places, some of them just wanted my credit card no....thankfully for real self I found Dr. Kapadia, I am very pleased with my results. His assistant was so nice, waiting time was none as soon as I arrived I completed a form and they called me in immediately. I have a little swollen , no... more
Dark, tear troughs are an inherited trait in my family. There were nearly complete circles around both my eyes and I was feeling old. I thought "that's it, I knew this day would come, old age has finally set in." I called a few places, they all said Resylane injections near the eye were controversial so they didn't do it -- and I'm thankful because YOU DON'T WANT JUST any... more
WHEN DONE BY THE RIGHT SPECIALIST - WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!
Let me start out by saying that I am 38yo female w very fair skin, prominent cheekbones & DEEP set eyes. Since my 20's my tear troughs have been a source of stress making me very self conscious. I tried juvederm injections & restylane 1-2x by a very prominant Boston dermatologist approx 2 years ago with little effect. Was told I'd... more
I learned of Dr. Kapadia from researching restylane. I was a bit nervous and apprehensive about having needle injections so close to my eyes. I have to say I have never been so glad that I decided to go for it! Dr. Kapadia was very honest and told me not to expect too much. I have to tell you, I am thrilled with the results!!! I don't have those huge bags under my eyes anymore! I should not... more
Every time I looked in the mirror all I could see was the dark hollows under my eyes. I looked tired. I am an esthetician so I have done all that I could for myself at work, peels, photofacials, every anti aging product. My skin looked good but those hollows, I knew all about dermal fillers and botox. So when I decided to have my under eyes filled, I only wanted the best eye surgeon I... more
I was sick of folks telling me I looked tired. It wasn't from lack of sleep - I had hollowing under my eyes as I've aged. I went to Dr. Kapadia over a year ago for my first injections. Today I went for a little touch up. This is one of the best things I could have done for myself. It is a major difference, yet subtle enough folks don't know exactly what you've done. Right away I look... more
Like many others who have left reviews, I was very nervous about doing anything cosmetic to my face, mainly because I don't hate the way I look and I had an overwhelming fear that I would look WORSE afterwards.
That being said, at almost-35, I was really sick of seeing the bags under my eyes. I think it made me look older and more tired and to be honest, it was getting to the point where all I... more
I am a health care provider so naturally I did a lot of research prior to undergoing any cosmetic procedure. I have deep lines in my forehead and under eye dark circles. I went to Dr. Kapadia for Botox and under eye/ cheek fillers. It was painless. There was no bruising and I look more youthful. The whole experience was pleasant from start to finish. It was worth it! more
I have had restylane injections to correct under eye hollows once per year for the past two years. I would recommend this procedure for anyone that is unhappy with their under eye appearance but is not yet ready for a blepharoplasty.
When researching a procedure such as this, I found it helpful to look for an opthamalic plastic surgeon. I felt at ease knowing that my doctor conducted... more
I decided to see Dr. Kapadia after reading great reviews on his work with fillers and I'm very glad I did. I was unhappy with the lack of volume under my eyes and decided after some research that a filler was my best option. I was a wreck before the consult. The thought of getting something injected into my face made me queasy! However, the minute I met Dr. Kapadia I felt at ease. He... more
I got injections of Restylane under my eyes to reduce the appearance of bags. I have used restylane a few times over the past few years and it is a wonderful alternative to having surgery. It works great and each time I get it done it lasts longer and longer and I seem to need less and less as the visits go on. It had been well over a year since my last treatment when I went in in April. ... more
I have always wanted to do something about my under eye circles. It is genetic and I remember kids commenting when I was younger. It was always something that made me so self conscious. After looking through a bunch of horrible reviews that scared me to not want to get the procedure done, I came across Dr. Kapadia. From the reviews it seemed like he knew what he was doing, and he definitely... more
I've had a great experience with filler under my eyes. I am like a new person! I didn't know if should have eye bag surgery or filler, but after listening to my doctor's oppinion, I did fillers. I don't know why people have problems with the procedure, maybe it's the doctor. It's important to find a skilled doctor who can really mold the under eye area, as it's very tricky and takes experience... more
