Testimonials

I visited Panache Aesthetics a month ago for lower lid blepharoplasty. My surgery was done by Dr. ANKIT GUPTA.

During the Surgery– I didn’t feel any sort of discomfort or pain, he was very confident. The surgery took an hour.

After the surgery – – After I went home and for a week, I felt very little to no pain (even without painkillers). My eyes swole for next 2-4 days but after that swelling started reducing. It was completely gone by 14th day. Dr Ankit gupta and their staff took regular follow ups and made sure that I am not facing any sort of issue.

Results- results were totally worth it, my under eye bags are Completely gone.

I am really happy with the results.
