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 (337)


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.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Mustoe is so professional, yet very personable. Great outcome!

Male Breast Reduction

The explanations of the procedures and the effort made to make sure there was understanding of realistic results was reassuring.

Breast Lift

Dr. Mustoe and the entire staff were patient, thorough, and informative.


The results are absolutely amazing. There was very minimal bruising, and I knew what to expect from the beginning. I am so much more confident in everyday life. The change was minimal to others, but extreme to me. And I am so extremely happy with the results.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Mustoe is an expert in his field and his manner very pleasing — he listens and takes all the time you need to listen and consult. The surgery center at 900 N Michigan was supremely clean with fantastic knowledgeable kind staff. [Single best thing is...] Dr. Mustoe's overall results from my tummy tuck and breast reduction. He delivered.

Face Lift

Everyone was so friendly and informative. They did their best to get me in during a busy season, I appreciate that. Dr Mustoe made me feel comfortable but also I felt confident in his master skills. I have recently had my surgery and look forward to my positive end result. Thank you!

Fat Transfer

I have had cosmetic surgery in the past. For one reason or another, I never returned to those prior surgeons. Dr. Mustoe does exceptional work and if I decided that another surgery was necessary, I would not hesitate to consult with him about the need. In addition to high quality surgery, he will also be honest about realities and expectations. For anyone looking for a surgeon to deliver the best, look no further!

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Mustoe is the BEST!! Hands down he has the knowledge and experience that others don’t have. His concern and compassion for his patients is beyond what you would expect. I highly recommend him:)

Revision Rhinoplasty

From my initial consultation to my continued follow up visits Dr. Mustoe has been great to work with. I'm 47 years old and was having a revision rhinoplasty from a nose job I had at 16 which had left me very self conscious in more recent years. He listened careful and was thoughtful in his approach. Could not be more satisfied with the experience. As an international speaker I am in front of groups and often on jumbotrons speaking every week. I had grown very uncomfortable that my nose was severely bent to one side which was even more apparent on camera. This procedure has allowed me to worry about my content instead of fearing my appearance.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Doctor was very detailed and understood exactly what I wanted. He made me feel very comfortable and confident about scheduling surgery with him.
