Fat Transfer

Dr. suggested what to be done with care.


Dr. Wheeler is extremely professional and talented. His team is top notch in every way. I'm thrilled with the results!!

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Wheeler is kind, thoughtful, an artist, and he goes above and beyond to address any concerns or issues I may have had in terms of my recovery. Dr. Wheeler showed compassion and understanding when I was unable to make my surgery date due to the illness and death of a family member. The entire staff treated me in a warm and professional manner, their attention to detail and kindness was overwhelming. Thank you all for kindness. The single best experience was when I was unable to make my appointment date and in tears called the office and said I so sorry but I was emotional and drained from care giving a family member. The staff showed support and compassion, Dr. Wheeler set another date and was able to move forward with the surgery a few weeks later.

Face Lift

The surgery made me look brighter and less tired looking. I felt more alive looking. Younger too! [Single best thing is...] The group of people that I interacted with and the Doctor were great!

Face Lift

I think Dr. Wheeler takes his time to explain what he can do for me. I did not feel rushed. I trust him because I have used him before.

The doctor was very informative about the procedures and knowledgeable. I like how he asked all the right questions. No pressure kind of clinic which I like.

Dr. Wheeler and Rachel were very informative and approachable. Waiting to hear why I was considering plastic surgery before they had recommendations.

Face Lift

I loved the entire staff I encountered, very friendly, interested in me, caring, making sure I was fully informed along the way. I felt I could rely on them with questions at any time. I was impressed that the pain level was much lower than I had expected. I was given plenty of information beforehand and experienced no abnormal results or complications.

Face Lift

Great experience from start to finish. Totally natural results! I’m having fun with my new appearance

Eyelid Surgery

I felt the office was very professional and friendly. I have known Dr. Wheeler for many years and have had a number of procedures by him. He is conservative in his technique so the end result is very natural looking which I really appreciate.


Dr. Wheeler was very professional, and he is an artist! He can make very realistic results. And couldn’t be happier with the results!

Face Lift

Dr. Wheeler and his staff are so kind and compassionate. Dr. Wheeler is one of the best in his field and I couldn’t be happier with my results. It is so natural and not overdone. I look 15 years younger. He really listens to his patients. Thanks Dr. Wheeler!

Dr. Wheeler and his nurse are just friendly and easy to discuss options with. I anxiously look forward to my scheduled surgery!

Great information provided by Dr. Wheeler.

Breast Augmentation

My daughter [name] recently had breast augmentation. She is beyond thrilled with the results. She looks and feels fantastic! We couldn’t be happier with Dr Wheeler and his staff. Everyone was so nice and Professional. They really made the whole experience nice for her.

Treatment / Procedure

Dr. Wheeler and his staff at LJCSC were awesome! Everyone made me feel so comfortableand made my surgery experience there so amazing. I am very satisfied with the resultsand would highly recommend them to anyone.


The best thing about the procedure is the continual joy I get when I see myself in a mirror or photo! The confidence that I have in my nose and overall appearance is the gift that keeps on giving. . I am in love with my nose post-rhinoplasty! Dr. Wheeler did the most beautiful job and the results exceeded my expectations. Interestingly, since surgery I have gotten compliments that my eyes and lips look bigger! Strange how changing one feature can alter others (or their perception) as well. The staff was also so kind and professional! My one difficulty was with the pain meds post-surgery. I became very sick from them, and don’t think my pain necessitated them. I wish that I had been advised to start with ibuprofen or Tylenol first, and if needed move to something stronger.
