Benjamin Caughlin, MD earned his undergraduate degree at Michigan State University and earned his medical degree at Wayne State Univeristy in Detroit Michigan. Fromm there Dr. Caughlin completed his residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago and completed a fellowship to gain specialized training in facial plastic surgery at the University of California Irvine in Orange County California. In Orange County he gained extensive experience in plastic surgery. His mentors are considered leaders in rhinoplasty, facelift and eyelid surgery.

Since his return to Chicago after his fellowship training, Benjamin Caughlin, MD, has perfected the “Loop” facelift. While Dr. Caughlin’s specific interests include minimally invasive procedures using tumescent anesthesia, he also specializes in procedures such as eyelid surgery done painlessly under only local anesthesia allowing for speedy recovery.
“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 with a focus on a natural appearance. In my view the “overdone” look can be less attractive than a naturally aged look. It is finding this balance that is key.”
At the busy John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, Dr. Caughlin is on attending staff to treat facial trauma, traumatic/burn scars and teach surgical techniques to both the University of Illinois and Northwestern Surgical Residents. He is also on staff at the Jessie Brown VA of Chicago where he is helping to develop surgical treatment options for the transgender population. He is trained in facial feminization and gender affirming surgeries of the face and is working to offer our veterans the best care possible.
“I build a plan for facial rejuvenation through detailed discussion and facial analysis tailored to each patient. All this is done with the goal of achieving a non-operated, youthful and refreshed look accomplished with the least invasive procedure possible. Most procedures I am able to offer patients the option to forego general anesthesia which is ultimately safer and speeds up the recovery process.”
