About Thomas A. Mustoe:

Chicago plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas A. Mustoe started his career at Washington University rising to Associate Professor after 4 years, and leaving after 6 years to come to Northwestern University as Professor and Chief of the Division of Plastic Surgery in 1991.

During his tenure, the clinical volume in plastic surgery at Northwestern University Hospital has tripled, and the plastic surgery residency program has become one of the most competitive programs in the country, and one of a very few programs that set aside and fund a required year for research.

Dr. Mustoe has been named annually to multiple Best Doctors lists both locally and nationally for the last 15 years, and carries on a busy clinical practice focused on aesthetic surgery. He has written multiple papers on his surgical techniques in facial reconstruction, breast reconstruction, aesthetic surgery, and techniques for local anesthesia and conscious sedation.

Dr. Mustoe graduated from Harvard College cum laude and Harvard Medical School cum laude. He took an extra year as research fellow in the laboratory of Bernard Fields, M.D., working on the genetics of reovirus, and was awarded the Somas Weiss Award for his work as the best medical student research presentation in 1978 at Harvard.

He completed his internship at Massachusetts General Hospital and his 2nd year residency in surgery at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital. He went on to complete residencies in otolaryngology at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, and plastic surgery at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, where he also served as Chief Resident.

Dr. Mustoe always takes his time with me. He is always thinking about his patient looking natural after a procedure. He explains the procedure very well and makes sure all of your questions are answered.

Face Lift

I have had several procedures done by Dr. Mustoe over many years. Dr. Mustoe is extremely skilled, conscientious, and committed to excellence. He is very thorough, communicates well, and is compassionate and kind. Dr. Mustoe is personally available for post operative consultation should a patient need assistance with questions or concerns. I have a the highest level of trust and comfort with his expertise. His office staff is also very professional, helpful, and nice.

Tummy Tuck

Very impressed by the fact that Dr. Mustoe didn't try to sell me on other procedures. He was honest about what he thought I needed and things I didnt need. I appreciated his honesty. I also liked that he spoke about the importance of maintaining ethical guidelines during surgery and not taking risks with a patient's life. Loved that he has great reviews on social media as opposed to other doctors I checked out.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Appreciate the conversation with Dr. Mustoe. [Single best thing is...] Minimal wait time.

Eyelid Surgery

My results are amazing! My eyes are more youthful and I no longer have headaches. My peripheral vision also improved after my surgery. The brow lift made my forehead look smooth and my eyes brighter. I’m so pleased with the results.


Dr. Mustoe and his staff were very professional and courteous. Dr. Mustoe was very forthcoming with information regarding the procedure and clearly explained what my expectation should be. He did not make promises he could not keep. I appreciated his honesty. I am very happy with the results and would recommend him.

Face Lift

Dr. Mustoe’s work was delicate and precise, yielding a noticeable rejuvenation of my facial appearance without me looking “done.” [Single best thing is...] The level of care. From the front office staff to the nursing care to Dr. Mustoe himself, I felt like a priority the entire time.

Tummy Tuck

Everyone in the office was highly professional and made me feel very at ease about a procedure I’m somewhat nervous about. I couldn’t feel more secure in my choice to go with Dr Mustoe and his staff.


Did not think that Radiesse accomplished what is should have done. It left deeper lines on lower left and right sides of the mouth.
