Statement: Dr. Mitesh Kapadia is a leading oculoplastic surgeon practicing in Boston and Wellesley, Massachusetts. As an eyelid, lacrimal, and orbital surgery specialist with over 15 years of experience, he has performed more than 6,000 eyelid surgeries, including thousands of cosmetic procedures, such as upper blepharoplasty (eye lift), lower blepharoplasty, ptosis repair, and brow lifts.

In addition to cosmetic eyelid surgery, Dr. Kapadia offers nonsurgical treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers (Restylane and Juvéderm) for facial rejuvenation around the eyes, cheeks, temples, lips, chin, marionette lines, and smile lines.

“I specialize in using both surgical and nonsurgical techniques to help patients look their best without looking surgical or overdone,” says Dr. Kapadia.

Dr. Kapadia graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia. In addition to earning his medical degree, Dr. Kapadia was awarded a PhD in neuroscience for his research in visual perception. He later completed a residency in ophthalmology with Harvard Medical School at its primary ophthalmology teaching hospital, Massachusetts Eye and Ear in Boston. After finishing his specialty training, Dr. Kapadia completed a fellowship in ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery at Boston Medical Center.

When he is not working at his practice or performing surgery, Dr. Kapadia teaches ophthalmic plastic surgery as an assistant professor at the prestigious Tufts University School of Medicine. He has also authored several research publications and textbook chapters in his field.

Answer Snippet
Pregnancy after getting fillers a while back, what are the risks?
fillers during pregnancy
Sep 14, 2020
Its not recommended to get fillers or Botox while you are pregnant or nursing, as tiny amounts of product may enter the bloodstream during injection and reach the fetus or baby. There is no known risk if you get pregnant after having these products.
Is it possible to lower overcorrected eyelid after ptosis surgery?
asymmetry after ptosis repair
Aug 31, 2020
Ptosis surgery is the most difficult type of eyelid surgery to achieve symmetry. The usual goal is to get the height of the upper eyelids within 1mm of each other. Overcorrection can be brought down with a second surgery, but there is always the risk of brining it down too much or leaving too high.

What treatments do I need for my under eyes? I’m 36.

Aug 14, 2020
It looks like the main issue is volume loss, which can be treated with filler injections. CO2 laser resurfacing can be used to help improve the fine lines.
Treatment for crepey skin under eyes? I’m 40 yrs old.
under eye veins and crepey skin
Aug 11, 2020
The under eye veins can be treated with a Nd:Yag laser. The mild wrinkles are more difficult. Botox in the upper cheek can cause smile asymmetry so its probably not the best treatment. Resurfacing the skin with a CO2 laser often helps.
What would help my (26/f) face look more relaxed and more symmetrical? A few pictures included.
Tired eyes
Aug 6, 2020
I think your eyes are stunning and wouldn’t recommend any surgery for you. If you want to see a little more lid platform, a Botox brow lift may help.
