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 (434)

Face Lift

Dr. Mustoe's surgical skill is outstanding. His staff is professional and well trained. Everyone involved with the actual surgery was top-notch.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Always polite and welcoming space. Staff and Dr Mustoe always make me feel safe and comfortable. [Single best thing is...] The end results.

Face Lift

[Single best thing is...] I look 15 years younger. I look very natural. Nobody noticed that I had surgery done

Face Lift

Dr. Mustoe was very patient and and highly knowledgeable. He listened to my concerns and explained the procedure to me step by step, I did not feel rushed at all! The consultation was a pleasant experience and he put my mind to ease.

Tummy Tuck

[Single best thing is...] The recovery was quick and virtually painless. If you are considering a tummy tuck look no further than Dr. Mustoe. My whole experience with Dr. Mustoe and his staff was amazing. Dr. Mustoe is an exceptional surgeon. He is attentive, brilliant, honest and a true master of his work. I was instantly impressed by the time he spent answering my questions and explaining the procedure that I booked my procedure the same day as my consult. It was truly one of the best decisions I made. I put off having a tummy tuck for years because I feared the pain, but in Dr. Mustoe’s hands I only needed to take Tylenol after surgery. I was back at my desk job a week after the procedure and was in the gym completing light workouts two weeks after my surgery. The results of my tummy tuck are amazing, and his work exceeded my expectations. I without a doubt recommend Dr. Mustoe to all my friends and family.

Eye Bags Treatment

Dr very professional and kind explained the process in detail. Appointments always on time, no wait. Reasonable prices. Staff all do great, and kind.

Tummy Tuck

Everything went as described, minimal pain and faster and easier than expected recovery.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

He was patient, answered all of my questions, and did exactly what I asked. [Single best thing is...] The results look natural.

Ear Surgery

I was treated comfortably with precision and my issue was resolved.

Neck Lift

My neck looks fabulous. I knew it would be great but did not expect it to be so perfectly smooth and youthful. My neck prior to surgery made me look older than I was and now I don’t worry about it being the first thing people notice. So happy.

Lip Lift

Dr. Mustoe is very professional. He answers all questions and suggests solutions. The staff is very helpful.

Tummy Tuck Revision

Dr. Mustoe is one of a kind!!!! You can not find doctors like him that are TRULY there for their patients! He is so calm and makes you feel so at ease. I am a complicated case and heal differently than most. He has always remained very calm and is ensuring that I am completely satisfied with the end result! He meets my husband and I before office hours and is always there (night or day) with any questions we have! From the initial appointment, to the staff and the nurses, we have always been welcomed like family. [Single best thing is...] My excess skin is gone and my scar is alot lower than the last Dr placed it!

Fat Transfer

I only had a consultation. I was very pleased with the discussion.

Neck Lift

The surgicenter was great-very professional staff and privacy was evident. The surgeon was professional, clearly described process, encouraged questions both prior to and after the procedure. Discharge instructions were clear and I was provided with additional supplies in the event of any bleeding.

Face Lift

I have had four different surgeries with Doc Mustoe. Very happy with every surgery would not go to anyone else

Face Lift

The people in Dr. Mustoe's office were very kind and professional. They listened to my concerns and understood what my objectives are.

Eyelid Surgery


BOTOX® Cosmetic

Really appreciate Dr. Mustoe's doctor/patient interactions, as well as the effectiveness of his treatments. [Single best thing is...] Long lasting


Dr. Mustoe consistently delivers the highest level of professional expertise. He's the best in the business. Even though Dr. Mustoe is quite a busy physician, he has always found time time to chat with us during our visits.


Everything was explained to my satisfaction. Appointments were easy to schedule. Ancillary staff were friendly. I felt that Mustoe spent an adequate amount of face time with me. [Single best thing is...] Mustoe set realistic expectations for surgical outcomes. Also he did not suggest (i.e. push) other procedures that he thought I might benefit from.
