Dr. Kundaria is beyond amazing. I can't say enough. Our 4-year old cut her head open and he came to the rescue for us during a VERY stressful time. He did an amazing job on her face and put us and her at ease. His bedside manner is incredible. He made her origami animals and even played Frozen songs while working on her. He is THE best and after leaving his office our daughter said he was an even better doctor than Doc McStuffins who is her favorite "Disney" doctor - and that says A LOT! He called us to check in on her after he stitched her up, and is a quick responder when we've had any questions. We could never thank him enough for his kind heart and steady hand as he took care of our precious baby girl.

I just want to say what a great experience I had at Nuance. I got the VI peel and a filler in my lip. Both being a first time experience and the staff and Dr K were very knowledgeable and able to walk me through the processes. My lips finally have a little volume and so pleased with the results. And my peel has given me such beautiful skin!! The texture is amazing and the radiance coming offf my face is AMAZING. I highly recommend Nuance Facial Plastics for any esthetic needs!
00:58 11 May 21
I received a chemical peel at Nuance and the entire experience was top-notch. From walking into the clean office with a lovely, welcoming front desk staff, to the in-depth consultation Dr. Kundaria provided before the peel, to the actual peel itself - everything was curated to provide individualized treatment versus a one-size fits all plan. Savannah performed the peel and talked me through each step as she was doing it, as well as contacted me multiple times after to make sure I did not have any questions and to see how I was doing with the treatment. I highly recommend Nuance Facial and will be definitely returning.
14:36 20 Apr 21
Had a wonderful experience here. I had the VI peel with Savannah the Esthetician and had great results. My skin looks amazing! Dr Kundaria was also great and very informative. Will be going back soon for dermal fillers!
14:44 05 Apr 21
I had a wonderful experience at Nuance Facial Plastics. Dr. Kundaria, and Savannah, were so warm, and inviting. I appreciated Dr. Kundaria's time, and interest in learning about my skin, and needs, as well as taking the time to really educate me on various options and skincare treatments/ injections. It was unlike any experience I have had, elsewhere, prior to my visit. Savannah did an excellent job with my chemical peel, and followed up with me, throughout the week to see if I had questions, or needed anything from her or Dr. Kundaria. I love their personalized approach to patients, and feel like they both went above and beyond to ensure that I had a positive experience.I absolutely loved my results from the VI chemical peel- my skin is bright, clear, and has such a nice glow; all of this came with minimal downtime or discomfort. The follow-up care was simple, and transparent, with the use of the app and after-care packet Savannah sent home with me.I highly recommend Nuance Facial Plastics, and I cannot wait to return for my next appointment!
21:52 04 Apr 21
Dr. Kundaria and his staff were very kind and they made my visit very comfortable. They showed genuine care before, during, and after my treatment. I'll definitely visit again.

I always trust Dr. Kundaria to recommend the best treatments and skin care. I had the Obagi Blue Peel. He provided a detailed explanation so I knew what to expect. I did everything he told me to do during recovery. He also called personally several times to follow up...very caring! My skin is smooth, soft, fine lines are diminished. I would highly recommend Dr. Kundaria! He is down to earth, caring and knowledgeable.
02:15 12 Mar 21
Dr Kundaria is the best plastic surgeon i have come across. He is extremely honest and upfront and will not recommend anything that is not right for you.His assistant Jessica is amazing ! If i could give him 10 stars i would.

20:21 05 Feb 21
I absolutely love this practice! They are easy to schedule with, staff is friendly and professional, and prices are reasonable. Dr. Kundaria has excellent technique and goes over and above to make sure I am comfortable and procedures are as painless as possible. I have been to several other injectors at big practices in Charlotte and have never been as happy as I am at Nuance.
18:07 07 Jan 21
I highly recommend Dr. Kundaria. He spends the time to listen to you and is very detailed when explaining your procedure. He is a kind person as well who personally calls to check on you after surgery. He doesn't recommend procedures you do not need. He strives for the best version of yourself and his work is very natural. His office is super clean, and his assistant is wonderful.
Excellent staff. Cares a lot for their patients. Totally recommend their service.

Great experience for surgery here. Very private facility for surgery and so easy to have done in office. No Anastasia required for a “turkey gobble” I had done and I was out in two hours. Highly recommend Dr. Kundaria and Staff . All made it a very easy and comfortable experience going in during Covid period. All precautions were taken greatly by him and his staff to assure me. Happy to say I have Excellent results! Thank you so much .
17:03 30 Oct 20
I had the best experience with Dr. K and Jessica! Each of them spent a significant amount of time figuring out what was best for my skin. I appreciated the no pressure feel from Dr. K as he strives to ensure all results look natural. Dr. K and Jessica recommended amazing skin care products for my skin type, and I saw results immediately. I loved my experience and can’t wait to return!
Need Botox? Go here! Dr. Kundaria did a terrific job! He knows what he's doing and didn't sell me on other fillers (even when I asked about them).

Doctors like Dr. Kundaria are few and far between. He is a professional who treats patients as top tier clients. He was extremely knowledgeable about issues affecting black skin, scar removal and corrective surgery. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. K. He's a legitimate, highly qualified surgeon and artist who is concerned about what is best for you and does not prey on clients' insecurities.
15:04 08 Sep 20
Dr. Kundaria listens and gives you his honest and expert opinion— he will tell you if the procedure is not right for you. He makes you feel like he cares about what you want and isn’t out to just take your money.
23:49 28 Jul 20
I had a great experienced and will definitely be going back!
20:58 22 Jul 20
I received a blepharoplasty (eyelids}, Obagi Blue Peel and Botox from Dr. Kundaria.....the care I received was phenomenal, the results were natural and amazing! In addition I also began his recommended skin care regimen to help further improve my skin and am extremely happy with the positive changes. I now have people comment on how young I look.....they just can't quite put a finger on why?I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Kundaria and his office manager Jessica! Five stars simply isn't enough!
14:45 22 Jul 20
20:48 08 Jul 20
I had my upper eyelids done a month ago and had the best experience. In office no pain and little recovery time. I would highly recommend Nuance Facial Plastics for my needs.
22:33 06 Jul 20
I had a wonderful experience the other day withDr. Kundaria. His knowledge of facial anatomy and natural movement allowed me to have the confidence in him for my Botox injections. It has been 4 days since my injections and the proof of an expert’s work is evident! Very pleased and will return!
20:50 20 May 20
Dr Kundaria is one of the best plastic professionals. He specializes in face exclusively. If you are looking for a wise advice to your face, Dr Kundaria is the person. He will never offer you what you don’t need. I am a very picky person and Dr Kundaria corresponds with my needs perfectly. I strongly recommend him.ANOTHER REVIEW: Since I can’t write a new review for the same place, I just update my one-year old review. If I could, I would give 10 stars to this multi talented, highly intelligent and sophisticated man. I will be his client as long as my face skin lives 😄 Also, Jessica, Dr. Kundaria’s assistant is one of the most pleasant young ladies you wish to be greeted by.
15:13 12 Mar 20
Dr.Kundaria preformed a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure and the results where beyond my expectations. It was a great experience and even though I was a little nervous, Dr.Kundaria made sure of answering all my questions and what to expect. Definitely providing me with the best, I am happy I was able to find a Dr. that cares about their patients.I definitely recommend Nuance Facial Plastics.

I went to Nuance Facial Plastics for the first time 3 weeks ago to get Botox. However, I ended up trying a new product, Jeuveau. I absolutely love the results! Dr. Kundaria was wonderful and really spent a lot of time with me explaining the difference between the products and what results I should expect. Jessica was also very knowledgeable and helpful and continued to follow-up with me after my appointment. I will definitely recommend Nuance Facial Plastics to friends.

Amazing Doctor and staff!!
21:53 04 Sep 19
Very kind, gentle, knowledgeable doctor. I had a blood blister / Venous lake on my lower lip for almost 9 years that would just not go away. It took just a single set of laser treatment for the scar to go away in 4 to 5 weeks. Dr. Kundaria performed the procedure himself. He is very passionate about his work and explained the whole procedure very patiently before performing it. It was a very quick procedure but the results are outstanding. Better than my expectations. Thank you Doctor.
17:57 23 Aug 19
Dr Kundaria is so knowledgeable and professional. He has a great bedside manner and takes to to explain procedures thoroughly and patiently answers all questions in a respectful manor. I love that he took a conservative approach to the fillers he used with me especially since it was my first time getting fillers at 36 years old. I didn’t want anything too noticeable. Dr Kundaria did a non surgical nose job and a little filler in the cheeks and I’m so happy with the way it turned out. I feel that he and his staff truly care and give a great personal experience.
21:03 27 Jun 19
Dr. Kundaria and staff are always so kind and helpful. Very pleased with my outcome and never overdone.
23:54 26 Jun 19
Love how Dr. Summit Kundaria listened to my concerns and helped me to achieve what I was looking for! Will definitely be using his services in the future and I would highly recommend him!

First time getting fillers and I was a little nervous Soon as I walked in I felt welcomedThe Dr listened to what I wanted and suggested ways to better what I needed All in all he gave me EXACTLY what I was going forHe explained everything that was going on as he was doing it I would never go anywhere elseEverything about this experience was worth it
14:43 02 Apr 19
I’m a new mom to a 7 month-old boy and getting to any appointment these days can be challenging! I had a laser treatment scheduled with Dr. Kundaria and I brought my baby with me to the office. During my 15 minute IPL session, Jessica watched after my son and made my experience so easy! They are very family friendly and I always feel like they provide such a unique experience….and my results have been great too.
15:05 23 Jan 19
Dr K is literally the best! He is such a perfectionist and won't stop until you are completely satisfied with your results. As my 40th birthday looms, I am starting to see those lines creep in more and more, so I went to see Dr K about some Botox. He took his time going over everything, what my ultimate goal was, and what he thought would work best. The procedure was quick and painless. He followed up within a week to make sure I was happy with my results. We needed to tweak something just a little bit, which he did free of charge. I am super happy with my results and will definitely be back!

Dr. Kundaria is brilliant!
20:40 14 Dec 18
I am new to Charlotte and I went to see Dr. Kundaria for the first time today to get some Botox and talk about potentially getting some facial fillers. I had the BEST experience and can't recommend him enough. I am a nurse and have worked with MANY doctors over the past 8 years and I can say with confidence that Dr. Kundaria is one of the kindest and most thorough physicians I have ever met. He spent a long time talking to me and really listened to my concerns and made thoughtful recommendations. We decided to do just a little Botox and no fillers for now, but if I do decide on fillers in the future Dr. Kundaria will be my go to. He also made some recommendations to help with my under eye redness that he said is most likely due to allergies. He even emailed me the same day with a link to a helpful blog post he wrote all about seasonal allergies and under eye bags. What can I say, he is just the best! If every doctor was like Dr. Kundaria the world would be a much better place. Five stars isn't enough!!
Dr. Kundaria is very personable and was helpful and thorough in his consultation. He has a great artistic sense, which I find to be imperative in a plastic...
19:02 20 Nov 18
Couldn't be happier with my experience and results from Nuance Facial Plastics. From the start Dr. Kundaria and Jessica were welcoming and made me feel at ease. I never felt rushed and he covered any questions I had. I received filler under my eyes and am so happy with my natural looking results. I love how I look and would definitely recommend Nuance to anyone I know. Thank you so much!
09:59 15 Oct 18
I had upper and lower eyelift surgeries by Dr. Kundaria last June. My results have been amazing! Dr. K's talent and expertise has given me unbelievable results. The procedure itself was pain free as well as the aftercare. He was very hands on and available anytime before, during and after my surgery which i greatly appreciated. I am 67 years old and this was my first procedure. Now, I want more!! Thank you Dr. K!!
23:40 06 Oct 18

Dr. K, Jessica and Ashley are a great team! I’ve been to them three times now, twice for injections and separately for a mini facial and dermaplaning. Jessica is so friendly and personable, Dr K is amazing at what he does and makes you feel so comfortable and in good hands, and Ashley recommended a great product that has helped with my acne tremendously. I can’t say enough good things about these people! Can’t wait to go back before the holidays!
01:44 26 Jun 18
In addition to the comfortable setting in the office Dr. Kundaria and Jessica work as an amazing team to make you feel at ease and their follow up is absolutely stellar. He will be incredibly honest with regards to what procedures are appropriate for the results you are looking for. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. 😀

Awesome experience! I came in for a consultation to fix a botched dermal filler job I got in a DIFFERENT office. Dr. Kundaria was so kind to take on this problem even though it was not his work. Luckily for me, he was able to effectively dissolve the filler. I could not be happier with the results and look like myself again!When I asked him about other treatments/surgeries he was very informative and spent a lot of time answering ALL of my questions in great detail. I was really impressed with his bedside manner. He is a very sincere and genuine doctor. It was evident he truly cared for me as his patient and $$ was no concern to him. I would highly recommend Dr. Kundaria and was very happy with the care I received from him.

Dr. K is really amazing. He is incredibly down to earth and tells you all the in and outs of whatever procedure you are considering. I had Erbium laser resurfacing of my face and I am SO thrilled with the results! I just had it the beginning of March and he told me it would take a few months to really see the results, but each week that goes by I notice it getting better and better and people are starting to comment on how great my skin looks. That has never happened before to me! I will continue having treatments with Dr. Kundaria and his team and can whole heartedly recommend them!!

11:15 02 Apr 18
I met Dr. Kundaria last year and was very impressed at how warm and welcoming he was! I have never had cosmetic procedures on my face so I was extremely anxious.

Dr. K has been helping me get my face wedding ready! His treatment plan has greatly improved the smoothness and color (less red, age spots etc) of my face. I am so excited that I will be camera ready for the big day and would highly recommend visiting Nuance Facial for any plastic surgery needs!
20:26 20 Mar 18
I visited Nuance Facial Plastics to have the little veins/broken capillaries + a tiny red spot (mini cherry angioma) above my lip treated with the Vascular Laser. Post treatment, I was left with a very small "purple" spots where the laser froze the capillaries and cherry angioma. This stuck around for close to a week and ever since its as if nothing was ever there! I'm so happy with my results and will definitely be going back to get rid of anymore of those pesky little veins.Both Dr. Kundaria and Jessica are incredibly friendly and make coming into the office fun and laid back experience!

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Kundaria. I wanted to still look natural and like myself but refreshed. He listened to my concerns carefully and was able to give me the exact results I wanted with Botox. I don’t look tired anymore, my eyebrows are now even, and I am now able to apply less makeup and still feel and look great.I highly recommend Nuance Facial Plastics to anyone. Not only is Dr. Kundaria the best but his staff is super friendly, professional and very accommodating. They make you feel like part of their family and that’s important to me as well.

I had a first time visit with Dr. Kundaria today and couldn’t be happier! The office space was bright, welcoming and very clean. Jessica at the front desk greated me with a smile and was very helpful in starting the paperwork. Check in and check out was seamless and easy. Dr. Kundaria was very informative and easy to talk to answering a ton of questions during my consultation. I opted for a same day procedure today and am so glad I did! The doctor thououghly explained everything he was going to do before hand and as he did it. He was gentle and cautious and I couldn’t be happier with my results. Thank you Dr. Kundaria!
15:06 17 Feb 18
If ever you are looking to have any facial work done, be sure to see Dr. Kundaria first! He did an amazing job answering the thousand questions I had, which erased any hesitation that I could have had. His demeanor was very friendly and relaxed and he explained everything so I would thoroughly understand it.He was also very honest about what I did and did not need to have done. He was clearly there to help me and not just push procedures and products on me. I felt as though he truly cared about ensuring that I was completely satisfied with my results.We have tons of Plastic Surgeons in the LKN area and it is well worth the 45 min drive to see him.I would highly recommend him.

I had a great experience in the office today. As soon as I walked in I felt immediately welcomed by Noelle. She did a great job of helping me understand the process before I began. Today I had laser hair removal done Cindy Roberts. She did a wonderful job by explaining me step by step of what she was doing. That made me feel really comfortable as I sat in the chair. Dr Summit Kundaria worked on my upper lip for the hair removal and explained how everything works and what I should do once I walked out. Over all you can tell how each employee values customer care and the quality of their work. I would definitely recommend this place.
