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.

Thomas A. Mustoe, MD Reviews (355)

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Mustoe and team are really professional and personable. They have best bedside manners. Also their space is breathtakingly decorated. It makes the experience so much more pleasant.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Wonderful result. Looking forward to my facelift,. No wrinkles on forehead.

Neck Lift

The results were outstanding I look very natural, Dr. Mustoe worked his magic once again! The nurse was very knowledgeable and inspired confidence and communicated caring. I look “ better” in a natural way. I don’t think that outcome is a given, I see many women who look like they have had work done, I don’t think that is true with me.

Chin Implant

The procedure was done in the office with little down time after. When I had questions or concerns about my recovery someone got back to me on a timely basis. My end result was fabulous--very natural looking with no visible scars.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Mustoe is an incredibly dedicated professional that analyzes a patients needs and plans the process. The outcome is very fine, so much, that it actually improves confidence in your appearance. I wish I knew of Dr. Mustoe earlier when I had other needs. I would not ever consider another surgeon.

Face Lift

Results are excellent. No pain or discomfort.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. was very thorough in explaining options. Staff was very knowledgeable and efficient Dr. and staff made me feel that I had their undivided attention throughout the visit.

Neck Lift

Dr. Mustoe and his staff are very attentive, caring and professional.

Face Lift

Before surgeries, I researched all the top Plastic surgeons in Chicago and it was clear that Dr. Mustoe was the best. My outcomes exceeded my expectations.

Brow Lift

1. Superb doctor 2. Superb facility 3. Superb staff

Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Mustoe is an excellent and caring surgeon. In addition, Dr. Mustoe, his staff and nurses were always available during my healing process. The surgery was very successful and I would definitely choose Dr. Mustoe again. Dr. Mustoe clearly explained the procedure .The surgical center nurses and doctor were supportive and caring.


I am so pleased with the results of my rhinoplasty with Dr. Mustoe. He really listened to what I wanted and the end result was perfect. Aside from my family and the few close friends I told, no one has been able to tell that I had the procedure.

Laser Treatment

Honest, specific information

Face Lift

Dr. Mustoe is very professional and it is a pleasure to talk to him and ask questions. He answers honestly and thoroughly.

Eyelid Surgery

Outstanding results that are noticeable and natural. Exceeded my expectations. The post surgery swelling was scary but the team talked me through it and gave me a good sense of what to expect and when.

Neck Lift

I have already had my nose done with Dr. Mustoe and I would NEVER go anywhere else for the surgeries I'll have this summer and the future surgeries I will have. Dr. Mustoe makes you feel as if you truly matter and he takes as much time as needed to explain the best course of action. He is a consummate professional and the most highly skilled surgeon. I literally can't recommend him highly enough. To anyone who is nervous or is hesitating I say, you will NEVER be in better hands! Do it, you'll have zero regret!


The procedure was not painful. Dr. Mustoe was calm, measured, prepared, and walked me through the whole process. I am satisfied with the result. I felt supported through the process.


Dr. Mustoe was very kind soft spoken surgeon who listened to what I was asking for. He was confident but not arrogant at all. I felt very comfortable with asking questions. I hope he doesn’t retire anytime soon. I’m an out of state client. Been to other surgeons but he topped them all. I can tell he really loves his profession and is produces great result!

Face Lift

Everyone I know asks what did I do. They say I look rested and refreshed. They comment on the looks of my face more so than the 50 lbs. that I lost. Other doctors who see me and I tell them what I had done say: Your surgeon did a fantastic job.

Face Lift

Dr. Mustoe is an exceptional surgeon. I have had facelift procedures performed by him in the past. I trust him completely and would never work with another surgeon. My results are wonderful (I am 72 and people think I am in my 50's) and I still look like myself. Dr. Mustoe listens, cares, is honest, has a sense of humor, is dedicated and is that rare doctor who has everything that a patient needs and is looking for in a professional.
