    Dr. Caughlin is an exceptional physician and surgeon who focuses on making sure everything turns out looking natural. I trust him completely knowing I will not look overdone. I had enzyme injected to remove a previously poorly done filler and he injected it small increments spread over a few appointments to make sure too much wasn't added. He is highly personable and spends a lot of time explaining things well. He gives you honest good advice and doesn't tell you what you want to hear nor does his office steer you towards unnecessary procedures. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a natural outcome! As a added bonus, his office staff is extremely kind and nice!

    Amazing Doctor!! Have been going to him already for months. He takes his time to explain the procedure. The staff is lovely which is a plus! He is very honest and tells you the truth if you dont need it he will tell you! He doesnt want you spending on things he honesty think it wont make a diffrence. Most doctors dont care and will perform it anyways just to make money. Had a chin lipo and he would text me just about every other day to check up on me. He was very caring and attentive. He is the best at what he does amazing work on eye bags, lip fillers and botox too. Highly recommend

    I had skin cancer on my left ear resulting in the need to cut a 3/4" wedge out of my ear and reconstruction of the ear. Dr Benjamin was Very Caring and Careful to make sure I wasn't in any pain during the procedure. He explained everything he was going to do and answered all my questions. The procedure was done on a Friday in his office in Irvine. Saturday morning Dr Benjamin personally called me to see how I was doing and told me to call his personal number if I had any questions or problems. The ear looks GREAT, nobody can tell he cut a 3/4 wedge out of the ear.I Highly Recommend Dr Benjamin Caughlin and would not hesitate to see him again.Thank You for the GREAT JOBFrank

    Dr. C is an amazing dr.. His personality is really what sets him apart. He's extremely  friendly,  an amazing communicator(which is hard to find) he explains things in English and doesn't  use the jargon that everyone else does. He checks up quite often and takes pride in is work. I only wish that he be my primary care physician.

    Having been a recent patient of Doctor Caughlin. I am/was totally impressed with the FLAP procedure done on the top of my scalp. Now 2 months after having the surgery there is very little scar visible. Doctor Caughlin  is a very concerning and skilled surgeon and demands his own high expectations. He comes very highly recommended from me (Ardean Ladd)
