5 out of 5 stars Buccal Fat Removal

Best Facial Plastic Surgeon in Chicago. EXCEPTIONAL Surgeon, wonderful bedside manner.

Dr. C is an amazing facial plastic surgeon. His skill set is exceptional as is his bedside manner and after patient care. On a scale of to 1-10, I would say he is a solid 11 all around. I had five different procedures in office on the same day: chin lipo, buccal fat removal, facial brightening via laser, fat injections for fuller lips and lifted brows, and eye lid surgery (blepharoplasty)....

I had a great experience! - Chicago, IL

Hi! I am 50+ year young man. I don't review, until I am satisfied! I did lower eyelid blepharoplasty plus fat transfer a few days ago in December, 2016. My Dr is Benjamin Caughlin. I am happy to find him among others. That was not an easy task! He and his professional team; Dr Memar, Lisa, Miguel are the people who know their craft. The location is great and convenient.

Thrilled with my results!

I am extremely happy with the care I received from Dr.Caughlin. He was very reassuring and welcoming and I'm thrilled with the results of my Botox and filler. It's by far the best thing I've done for myself! Nobody can tell I've had anything done, but everyone comments on how rested I look!

5 out of 5 stars Nose Surgery

Extremely Knowledgable and AWESOME Doctor

Dr. Caughlin is the best! He was always interested in how I was feeling and very thorough when looking at my nose. All women are concerned with their looks and having cancer on my nose that needed to be removed was a huge worry for me. Dr. Caughlin is aware of how people feel about having any surgery and the healing process, to this day he still checks up on me to make sure my nose is good...

Couldn't Be Happier - Chicago, IL

Dr. Caughlin is fantastic! I'm extremely pleased with the results of both my botox and filler! I'm a younger, better, more refreshed version of myself, and it looks so natural! As a bonus, he's has a great personality. I've recommended him to several of my girlfriends and we all couldn't be happier! Thank You Dr. Caughlin!

The best facial plastic surgeon! - Chicago, IL

Dr. Caughlin wasn't the first person who I went to for lip fillers. I tried it a few times previously by different people, none of whom did as good of a job as him. He did an absolutely amazing job with the injections. He also injected my botox and similarly did a fantastic job with it. I only trust him with my fillers and botox and I would only recommend him to my family members and friends.

Caring and excellent surgeon

Dr. Caughlin is an extremely skilled and caring surgeon. I have seen him for several treatments, and he always ensures that I am both involved with the decision making and comfortable during the process. He never tries to oversell me on any product or procedure, but is very knowledgable about which treatments will best suit my face. I have recommended Dr. Caughlin to countless friends and...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift


I'm 70 and its time for me to get my face back. I researched plastic surgeons who specialize in facelifts and found Dr. Caughlin as the most qualified. He has published tons of papers and has great reviews all over the board. In consultation he was very thorough and put everything in plain English. He is a sweet guy and I totally trust him. He is giving me a facelift and necklift. I'm afraid...

5 out of 5 stars Xeomin

An essence of a doctor by calling!

For years I have considered similar treatment and have consulted with various providers over those years. I never quite felt the "click" that would make me pull the trigger, so to say. Then I came across Dr. Ben Caughlin. Gentle, caring, resourceful. Not over promising. Educating , not pushing. Through initial consultation I immediately took to his personality, appreciated his approach. By...

Personal Statement

For me it is all about having happy patients. I focused solely on facial plastic surgery because I feel strongly about sub-specialization in medicine to maximize patient results. My aesthetic end points have evolved so that I appreciate a slow transition of patients to a smooth and youthful look!
