5 out of 5 stars Fat Transfer

Simply the BEST!

I was extremely hesitant about having any facial plastic surgery due to an awful experience I had 30 years ago. The previous Dr. attempted to correct the over abundance of collagen injections by injecting a massive amount of steroid which left my skin as thin as tissue paper. Also the eyelid surgery performed to try and get rid of my now unbelievably loose skin, left me with an eye that does...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Great experience and result

Dr Caughlin is very personable and friendly. I received the treatment on the same day when I consulted with him about my tear troughs. I want to have the natural look. He suggested that I tried out 1 syringe of restylane. I loved the result immediately; though there was a small bruise on my left cheek but it went away after two weeks. The best result right after the injection, after a few...

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Extremely Satisfied!!!

Dr. Caughlin was extremely helpful and patient from the minute I met him. He answered all my questions and was sensitive about my needs. I am thrilled with the results and I love waking up and no longer seeing the bags under my eyes! Dr. Caughlin contacted me personally to check up on me regularly during my post-operative days. I highly recommend this very competent and kind surgeon. He...

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. Downton Chicago at...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

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...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

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!

5 out of 5 stars Botox

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.

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!
