A very positive experience
I was referred to Dr Kapadia by my sister. He was very friendly and professional. I was given plenty of information about the procedure and the recovery process. The surgery went without a hitch. He removed the bags under my eyes and I have to say, I look about five years younger. The surgery was painless with just moderate bruising. I did have an episode of dry eye, but that resolved itself fairly quickly. Dr K was easy to reach for any post op questions. I definitely recommend him.

Dr.Kapadia is a true perfectionist.
I had upper and lower blethroplasty. Very happy with my results. I returned several times so Dr.Kapadia could tweak my surgery and the results exceeded my expectations. Very friendly staff as well. If you want perfection Dr.Kapadia is the one.

I never made it to the visit. The first time I called for info the receptionist was curt and they are frankly RUDE. She stated the doctor was standing beside her and they seemed to have a problem with the fact that I was asking questions. Why wouldn't I ask questions? I have never made inquiry to this type of a doctor. It became clear that unless you fork over $$ from the get-go they aren't going to give you the time of day. It seems as though it's factory to push patients through, not a doctor's office.

I am 31 yr old female, and have had heavy upper eyelids my whole life but in the past few years it had gotten much worse, where it covered my entire upper eyelids. I read great reviews on Dr. Kapadia and viewed his before/after pictures on his site and instagram. I got the upper blepharoplasty this past June and I couldn't be happier with the result! He is extremely detail focused, I needed more off the left than the right to even my eyelids and shape, and I still look natural, I look younger, and my blue eyes and makeup now show WAY more! I had zero pain during or after and the scars are already minimal. Highly recommend using Dr. Kapadia for any eye procedure. He is truly the best.

I spent a very long time looking for a doctor to do my under eye fillers. After seeing Dr. Kapadia's work online it was clear that the level of refinement he was acheiving with his fillers was incomparable to the portfolios I had seen from other drs. It was important to me that my face not loose any of it's main characteristics, or look "overdone". All of the pictures of Dr. Kapadia's patients looked like more refreshed versions of themselves. A dr knowing when to stop is just as important to me as what the dr actually does. I'm in my late 30's and I have always had an angular face, but under my eyes and cheeks were starting to look hollow and I wanted to level out those surfaces. I am thrilled with the work Dr. Kapadia did! I look exactly like my self. A well rested, younger, (and now happier) version of my own face. The whole experience was very pleasant. The doctor and his staff were friendly and professional. His Wellesly office was very nice. I can't recommend it enough!

Dr. Kapadia was recommended to me by my ophthalmologist who is a surgeon. She felt uncomfortable performing tear duct surgery and sent me to Dr. Kapadia. The surgery was a failure. Dr. Kapadia was abrupt with me, changed the percentage of the outcome of the surgery after the surgery failed. You may want to visit the experts in Boston for tear duct surgery.

I had ptosis repair of my left eyelid and I am very happy with the results. The procedure was easy and the recovery quick and relatively painless. It has been 4 weeks and the lid is a good match with the right lid. I am very pleased and would recommend Dr. Kapadia highly.

I have already recommended Dr. Kapadia to my sister, who will be needing upper eyelid surgery soon. He is very well qualified, professional, kind and caring. I had bilateral ptosis repair and upper blepharoplasty on my upper eyelids on Nov. 3 at a surgical site in Waltham. Everything was explained to me in advance. A pre-op physical and EKG with my PCP was required, and I was given clear post-op instructions. I already see much better and am very pleased with the results. I rate him A+.

I fully appreciate Dr. Kapadia's warmth and expertise. I saw him for a consult and he was dead honest about what could be remedied and what could not. He gave me options for cosmetic treatment for my lower eyelid bags. If I decide to go further, I will definitely go to Dr. Kapadia for my treatment. I give him the highest rating and I highly recommend him to others seeking facial cosmetic treatment.

Excellent reconstruction of lower eyelid after MOHs surgery for basil cell carcinoma. The procedure included the creation of a new tear duct which works great! The eyelid reconstruction was so good you cannot distinguish which eye was repaired!
