I highly recommend him!

Dr. Tandon was truly one of the most personable and professional doctors I have been treated by! He took the time to carefully understand the procedure I wanted and what I felt my problem areas are, then adjusted to address those. He both asked insightful questions to understand my needs and answered all my questions with patience to make me feel comfortable and confident. My results demonstrated all of that care and I could not be more pleased. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Tandon understood exactly what I wanted

I saw Dr. Tandon for Botox and lip filler and couldn’t be happier with my results. I was looking for a skilled doctor who would give me a natural look, and Dr. Tandon understood exactly what I wanted. He took a lot of care and time with my consult, it’s very clear that he cares so much about the quality of his work. I was also happily surprised that procedure was practically painless. I highly recommend working with Dr. Tandon!

Dr. Tandon is the best

Dr. Tandon is the best and the only one I trust with my Botox. He’s very personable and listens to how I want to look (I like a bit of movement, not totally frozen). He also makes recommendations that are suited to my comfort and I trust his judgement. Couldn’t recommend Dr. Tandon more!

We were thrilled with the results

Dr. Vickram Tandon is a superstar surgeon in the world of facial aesthetics, as well as injectables. My wife received superior care in his hands, and he stands far above other Boston area, cosmetic, and facial plastic surgeons.
