Mole Removal

Good advice.

Breast Implant Revision

Excellent staff and communication and attention. Dr. Wheeler was a great listener and explained thoroughly what he recommended and what the process and outcome would be. This was also the first experience I've had where I did not get sick from anesthesia. The entire process from the 1st appointment to after surgery has been a great experience and I will go back for other surgeries in the future. [Single best thing is...] I had such anxiety going in to this and they made me feel so comfortable.

Breast Augmentation

They look really nice ... everyone was professional and kind.

Fat Transfer

I have been a patient of Dr. Wheeler for decades and consider him to be the best cosmetic surgeon in San Diego. I have been consistently overwhelmed with his surgery and his great way of communicating. I do hate to see him retire. He will really be missed. [Single best thing is...] Dr. Wheeler and the staff are the greatest.

Face Lift

The results exceeded my hopes! From first consultation I knew I was in great hands. Follow up care & instructions were explicit.

Arm Lift

Dr. Wheeler is not only kind but also highly qualified to perform any of the procedures listed previously. I have had other areas treated by him as well regarding a large weight loss in my early 20’s. He is direct and honest and will say exactly what he needs to say and as a patient I appreciate his direct honesty.

Breast Implant Revision

The surgery went really well. I am very happy with the results from my breast removal and replacement. Staff did follow up calls to ensure I was doing well. [Single best thing is...] They look very natural not fake!

Fat Transfer

Dr. wheeler is so kind. He took time to look at me, tell me approximate cc amount being placed, drew a picture of my face and described to me what he was gonna do. Didn't try to sell me, his prices are fair not overly inflated like some Dr.s who inflate their prices every 6 months for the same procedure.
