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 (409)

Breast Reduction

Dr. M is matter of fact, measured, and very professional in his approach. He - and his staff - outlined the plan for surgery and what was expected in an straight forward and credible manner. For example, Dr. M acknowledged non-zero associated risks and explained why he couldn't commit to a specific size post-surgery - but could commit to a getting as close as realistically feasible to my desired outcome. He also provided clear instructions with a minor post-surgery complication (minor infection), His office staff is friendly, helpful and flexible.

Breast Reduction

Dr. Mustoe took the time to explain everything plainly and made me feel very comfortable with the surgery.


Dr. Mustoe was very kind, knowledgeable and walked me through the whole process. He was very realistic and skillful. Very happy with the results and the healing process was very fast. I love my nose profile and chin. Nothing is overkill or highly noticeable.

Breast Implant Revision

The replacements are better than the originals that were done 22 years ago. All staff were very professional and helpful! The highly knowledgeable and professional manner of Dr. Mustoe and staff are much appreciated!

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Mustoe has a wonderful manner, kindly, direct, and clear.

Breast Augmentation

I really like how Dr. Mustoe sat down with my husband and I and explained the procedure in his office. We did not feel rushed or pressured. Very professional.

Face Lift

I had a consultation with Dr. Mustoe for a facelift. I also had Botox injections. Dr. Mustoe was professional and genuinely kind and caring. The Botox injection turned out beautifully.


You can tell this office is a well oiled machine. The doctor was on time, you can tell he’s at the top of his field and highly respected and the staff is also well educated and the best of the best in their field. Questions were answered before I could even ask them. I feel very well prepared for my procedure.

Tummy Tuck Revision

Dr. Mustoe was so very thorough and knowledgeable in detailing everything that needed to happen and why. He also really put me at ease.

Mommy Makeover

I felt listened to and my fears were put at ease. The procedures were explained in full and in a light kind atmosphere.

Face Lift

Very Over-priced and office not helpful in coming up with less expensive options or ways to do procedures separate so as to save money.


We Love Dr. Mustoe...He has been our Doctor for over 21 years... This time I brought my son to correct his breathing and he did a fabulous job as usual.


My son had broken his nose twice and had a rhinoplasty (done by another surgeon) following the breaks. We were not happy with the job the original surgeon did. He told us that the nose was as good as it was gonna get. We came to Dr. Mustoe, who said he was confident he could make some dramatic improvements, and he did.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Mustoe took time to talk with me. Our conversations are always pleasant and he communicates a sense of caring about me.

Tummy Tuck

It was basically a really quick recovery and I looked great without all the pain! My results are great! My recovery lasted much quicker than the traditional Tummy Tuck. I was walking upright from day one.

Tummy Tuck Revision

Dr. Mustoe is a perfectionist with an eye for detail. I came to him with a botched procedure and a scar higher than my pant line. He gave me the stomach I have been working so hard for in the gym.

Breast Reduction

Dr. Mustoe is not only a highly skilled surgeon; he is also very kind and understanding. He listened to my concerns and addressed them. I felt very secure in his care. Also, everyone in the office has been kind and worked very hard to make everything easier for me as a patient.


Had a big nose, now it’s smaller. Quick, explained well by Dr. M, relatively low in pain.


Dr. Mustoe took a great deal of time with me and although he obviously does this multiple times a day, I felt like he was giving me his undivided attention. He really listened to my thoughts and concerns, answered my questions with honesty and setting realistic expectations.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

[Highly satisfied with] Dr. Mustoe's bedside manner & skill.
