5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

49 Years Old, Married Mom of 1. - Columbus, OH

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

42 Year Old Wanted to Be Properly Proportioned - Upper Arlington, OH

Dr. Wakelin, cares about his patents. He took into consideration my needs and helped me resolve my issues. I never felt rushed at anytime, Dr. Wakelin spent time with me during my consult, day of surgery, and post-op answering any questions and making sure my surgery was a success.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Plastic Surgery - Upper Arlington, OH

Dr. John K. Wakelin, has worked with me concerning my procedure and has without a doubt the best bedside manner, taking time to answer questions and to assure me that all is to be expected. He has also explained any information he feels I may have concerns with in the future. He let me know I can call with any additional questions even though he has released me from his care. I know that should I need or have a desire to have additional procedures in the future Dr. Wakelin will be the doctor I contact. I have already referred others to him. Again I thank you Dr. Wakelin

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

28 y/o, Breast Implants, 300cc Silicone Gel, High Profile, Submuscular - Columbus, OH

Dr. Wakelin is great. He's very professional, polite, and so is the staff. I had my consultation, surgery, and next day follow-up and they even gave me an (after)care package with scar cream which is one thing I hadn't bought, so that was awesome! Still waiting for my breasts to "drop and fluff" but it's still early and regardless they look really great! I would go through CAPS all over again.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

72 Years Old and in Great Need of a Tummy Tuck! - Columbus, OH

My husband and I both immediately liked Dr. Wakelin. There was never any pressure or sales pitch. He explained what he could do and what he felt the results would be. He was extremely easy to talk to and was very kind. He put us at ease, and we felt very confident that I would be very pleased with the results. He and his assistant, Melissa were very helpful through and after the whole process! I am thrilled!

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

29 Years Old with 3 Kids. Columbus, OH

The first time I meet Dr. Wakelin I gave him a run down of all my concerns and areas that I had issues with he went through each one and explain each procedure recovery time and realistic expectations... I was sold but was not able to schedule yet because with everything I wanted done it was going to be a bit more then I expected. I put my plans on hold for a little while (about 2-3 years and after another baby). And decided to see if I could look into the more affordable options, so I met with a few other surgeons and just didn't feel like I could trust them complete with my body, even though their price was substantially reduced, I just couldn't risk my body, life, or wellbeing to save a few bucks! I decided to go back to Doctor Wakelin and this time I already knew what day I wanted and about how much is was going to run me. So we worked everything out and I was in surgery with in a month in a half. He came in talk to me just before surgery and even checked in with my family as soon as I was finished. They said he went over all home care and restrictions. Checked on my again after the anesthesia wore off and let me know how great I did! His office and staff were always available for any concerns and questions I had! It's been about 3 month since now and I love my results and will refer him to anyone

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

Cool Sculpt. Arms, Thighs- Outer & Inner, Bra Line, Back of Thighs - Arlington, OH

Amazing doctor & practice. I would highly Recommend Columbus Asthetics and Plastic Surgery to anyone. Dr Wakelin did my breast augmentation about 5 years ago, then 4 years ago I had a tummy tuck, then lipo of the inner thing and now cool sculpting, along with Botox over the past 5 years. Everything I have had done has exceeded my expectations and the incision are perfect little lines that are not noticeable. Great place to get anything cosmetically done.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Top in His Field for a Reason - Columbus, OH

Dr. Wakelin took the time to really listen and understand my desired results. He and his staff were always quick to answer any questions. Their attention to detail is second to none. Linda Cody RN was exceptional! She always so nice and attentive to my needs! It was a great experience! I highly recommend him and only him!

5 out of 5 stars Laser Liposuction

Beautiful Journey & Beautiful Outcome - Columbus, OH

What a wonderful experience from start to finish! I completed months of research looking for the right surgeon to do my laser liposuction and otoplasty procedures. Dr. John Wakelin proved top notch with a background of outstanding credentials supported by solid experience. The added bonus was ease of conversation through all of my questions, his patient explanation of each procedure , provision of expected results, and the amount of time he spent making me feel comfortable and happy with each step forward. Now onto Dr. Wakelin's most valuable tool... The CAPS staff are UNPARALLELED in their knowledge, outreach, and professionalism. I can honestly say it was joy interacting with the ladies of the Upper Arlington location. Their use of electronic communication for my convenience was a perk I have never experienced with any other doctor. The day of my procedures went beautifully with the outpatient surgery center staff anticipating my every need and even treating my family wonderfully throughout! Lastly, the amazing Linda Cody spent an extraordinary amount of time checking in on my progress, answering each email and phone call promptly, and after each conversation affirmed that CAPS is the one and only place I will ever have any aesthetic procedure or beauty fix. Each appointment, the procedures themselves, the follow up care, photographs, and overall journey has been true pleasure that I recommend you experience for yourself. Thank you sincerely for a beautiful journey and a beautiful outcome!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Fantastic Doctor and Team! - Columbus, OH

Dr. Wakelin was highly recommended by my general surgeon and my OB, independently of each other, and I'm glad they did. I'm not sure what my expectations were of a plastic surgeon, but he definitely exceeded them. Dr. Wakelin is friendly and approachable, and is obviously quite knowledgeable and skilled at his craft. And his nurses are absolutely wonderful. They always respond very quickly to any fears or questions I have, and I've had several. Each time they not only completely answer my questions, but empathize and understand with my concerns. If I ever need any more help, I would absolutely return to Dr. Wakelin and his team.
