MEET THE DOCTOR
He grew up on the Central Coast of California and attended Stanford University, where he earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in Chemical Engineering. He attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine after spending a year volunteering with inner city youth in Mumbai, India.
After graduating, he stayed at the University of Pittsburgh for a five-year residency in its top-ranked program Head and Neck Surgery.
After Residency, he stayed as faculty for one year before moving to Los Altos, CA, for a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, where his education and practice consisted of rigorous training in surgical facial rejuvenation and rhinoplasty, as well as oculoplastic and hair surgery. Over the course of his training, he has presented at national and international meetings, authored and co-authored multiple peer-reviewed articles and book chapters.
But Dr. Kundaria believes that training at top institutions and under the guidance of leaders and pioneers in the fields of study does not make a good doctor or surgeon. Attention to detail, good judgment, compassionate care, and active listening are much more important to the care he delivers than his resumé. Though he is eternally thankful to have had the opportunities to study and train where he did, he prides himself more on the ability to connect with people and address their needs in a unique way, and with a sense of humor.

Get in Touch
The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog is here to give you the most honest, up to date information from us to you, in our “sponsored by nobody” style. Our discussions will include topics that interest our readers, with a focus on facial plastic surgery. We will use this space to answer frequently asked questions and also discuss current trends, new products, and emergent technologies. Information is widely available on the internet, but good information that is not marketing material in disguise is hard to find, and often times constitutes a majority of what patients read as their “research”. The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog differs, as we are an independent practice that has no exclusive deals with any vendors, companies, or other entities that would influence the quality and honesty of the information we provide you.
Our First Series
One of the most common discussions that we have with patients are about the differences between products that we offer, as there is some overlap. The single most common question we get asked is, “what is the difference between Botox and Dysport?”. Our first three-part series will explore the differences between the three neuromodulators currently available in the USA, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Several topics, such as differences in the strength, longevity, or “spread” between the products will be discussed. Despite being broken into a three-part series, there is quite a lot of information, as the information from these posts are rooted in science, and the claims are supported by multiple articles published in high quality, peer-reviewed medical literature.
