Got Rid of the Under Eye Bags for Good! - Saint Louis, MO

Dr. Caplin and his staff took great care of me before and after the surgery. They were always there to answer all of my questions and are very thorough in all of the aftercare visits.

Post Menopausal Woman with Sagging Chin an Neck - Saint Louis, MO

I have had a relationship with my plastic surgeon for almost 16 years and have always trusted his advice. I initially went and saw him in my late thirties for advice for my skin and he promptly assured I needed no procedures but a good skincare regimen which his office put me on. I couldn't believe how much better I looked. Over the years I would periodically check in with him about needing some tweaks and he turned me away many times saying I just wasn't ready. Many other doctors would have jumped at the chance to "work on me". So I knew when he said I was ready I really was. He is compassionate, caring and someone that is truly only interested in performing procedures when he feels they are really warranted. He is the only plastic surgeon I would ever consider letting do any kind of surgery on me and that is why he is considered the top plastic surgeon in our area and I would go as far as saying perhaps in the Midwest. He is known for his innovation, his altruistic work on women with disfigurements and women with breast cancer that cannot afford to have surgery, and as a leader in his industry. I stress enough that if you are considering any kind of plastic surgery this is the doctor you want to see. I can remember when telling a nurse or someone at the surgical center who my doctor was they stressed to me that I have the best. I already knew that :)

Lost a Significant Amount of Weight After Having my Children.... - Saint Louis, MO

DR. DAVID CAPLIN is BRILLIANT! He is the BEST surgeon!!! He is so very kind and thoughtful in every way. He is so knowledgable and it really comes across when speaking to him. He explains procedures so well and really takes his time with his patients. He follows up personally with his patients and that is so appreciated. I completely trust him and I do not say that lightly. I have 3 small children now that are my entire world and I give thought to every action I take.....I can honestly say that I trust Dr. Caplin with my life and would allow him to do any type of surgery that is wanted/needed. He is THAT good! He has a beautiful office, a warm and sincere staff (Karyn, Kelly, Terri, and Tammy are great), and is a top notch surgeon. My mother got a face lift from Dr. Caplin. She is 68 and looks to be 50. He did a fantastic job!!!! I highly recommend Dr. David Caplin! So worth a plane trip or a drive (I live 3 hours away)!

39 Year-old, Mom of Three. St Louis, MO

Dr. Caplin is an amazing doctor. He is kind, professional, and treats each patient the same. He spends a lot of time with you describing the procedure. He also explains, at length, what will occur after surgery. I felt that I was very well-educated and very well taken care of both before and after surgery. Dr. Caplin's staff is also very kind and caring. I am now 2 weeks post-op, and feel great!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

2 Awesome Kids = 1 Terrible Body - St. Louis, MO

Upon meeting with Dr. Caplin, he noticed I had an umbilical hernia. I think this is important to mention, as I did meet with approximately 4 other doctors who never noticed. He stressed the importance of getting it repaired and helped me determine a solution. It was Dr. Caplin's idea to merge the tummy tuck and hernia repair surgery. He recommended another doctor and after I met with the second doctor, we combined the surgeries. Basically, Dr. Caplin "opened" me and then Doctor 2 repaired my hernia (paid by insurance). Dr. Caplin repaired my abdominal wall, performed liposuction and removed the excess skin. Then he was responsible for "closing" me. I'm still on minimal activity and every week I am getting better. I am happy about my decision and would do this double surgery again.

34 Year-old, No Kids, Workout Like Crazy, and It Won't Go Away! Saint Louis, MO

So far, so good! I will update ASAP. Dr. Caplin was very "locked in" on his work, but constantly was asking if I was OK, which of course I was. I was on my belly for the first half and then my back for the second half, and honestly, the worst part of the entire procedure was holding my hands on my breasts without moving while he finished up my belly...my hands got numb and I was ready to move! I have a scar through my belly tattoo which left an indentation, and Dr. Caplin worked extra hard to break up the scar tissue under the scarred part of the tattoo, which was sore, but now I can definitely tell that there is less of a divot there. Two days later I am VERY satisfied with my results and cannot wait to see what each day brings!
