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 (484)


Dr. Mustoe respected my request as to amount of filler.


[Highly satisfied] Because everyone in this office is very professional and also very pleasant.


Dr. Mustoe was wonderful in walking through what would happen before and after the procedure and what to expect in terms of pain and the overall experience. He set expectations and was always willing to answer any questions that arose. The office staff is also very professional and the appointments were right on time. Most importantly Dr. Mustoe made my daughter feel comfortable in asking questions and explaining everything. [Single best thing is...] The thorough explanation of what to expect after the procedure in terms of pain and/or discomfort so there were no surprises. Although the pain was less than she expected which turned out even better!

Revision Rhinoplasty

Results were exactly what I wanted. Great experience.


Although, I am still in the healing process and there are certain areas that are still swollen and should improve over time, I think my rhinoplasty was a huge success. I love my new nose. I finally enjoy taking pictures of my face from any angle.


I’m a repeat customer of Dr. Mustoe. He did an excellent job on my tummy tuck and is top in his field, which makes him a trusted doctor.


Not only was the doctor pleasant and knowledgeable, but the outcome was better than we anticipated.

Eyelid Surgery

Everyone at the office was kind, thoughtful, and considerate. Each person maintained proper safety protocol for COVID-19 and encouraged all patients to do so as well. Dr. Mustoe was clear and concise about the surgery. Lori Pascal also made the entire scheduling and billing process a breeze. overall, a pleasant experience.

Tummy Tuck

My experience with Dr. Mustoe and his staff has been nothing but positive, despite the fact that my Brest augmentation requires a revision, I’d never go to another doctor. I trust Dr. Mustoe and his staff completely and would recommend them to everyone I know. Without reservation. I lost 180lbs getting rid of my excess abdominal skin was truly amazing and life changing!

Neck Lift

Dr. Mustoe took a lot of time to understand my wishes, and to explain his recommendations and how they would work. His staff were happy to schedule a second consult at no charge to answer questions I hadn’t thought of at the first consult. His focus on being as minimally invasive as possible for both health and financial reasons was refreshing. He had numerous photos of patients who have successfully had the procedure I’m considering, and he was willing to go over them in detail with me to answer my questions.

Neck Lift

Dr. Mustoe explained the procedure completely; was very willing to answer all of my questions; did not seem to be in a hurry and took all the time needed. I thought his cost for the neck lift was reasonable.


The office was very thorough in detailing the procedure and used high tech imagining software to show me expected results for the rhinoplasty which I liked. Dr Mustoe was very professional and showed me examples of similar procedures he performed which gave the results I was hoping for. Looking forward to getting the surgery done.

Face Lift

Simply speaking the results are terrific. My face looks young and natural, there are no signs that work has been done on it. The recovery was fast. The talented Dr. Mustoe is gifted with excellent communications skills, loves his work, very skilled and human, a perfectionist. Could not be any happier. The best thing about this procedure is the results; I look naturally younger which gives me more self confidence and reflects on my mood.


I felt a very trusting bond due to his experience and natural aesthetic. I can’t wait for September!


All staff were very attentive and Dr. Mustoe really took the time to answer my questions and address any concerns I had. I have utmost confidence in his skill set and experience!

Eyelid Surgery

Result is totally natural. I have been a patient of Dr. Mustoe for 20+ years. He refreshes my appearance so that it is youthful but natural.

Neck Lift

The staff are friendly and welcoming. Dr. Mustoe took his time with me. I never felt rushed and he answered every question and was honest in his evaluation of my needs. Appreciated that I didn't want to end up over done or obvious that I'd had surgery.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Dr. Mustoe did a beautiful job fixing a bad rhinoplasty done by a previous surgeon, that did not suit my face at all. Dr. Mustoe was able to create a nose that looks much more natural, proportional and ethnically suited to my face. He was kind, attentive and committed to make me happy with the outcome. I could not have picked a better surgeon, I am very satisfied. Everything went smoothly and Dr. Mustoe and his staff were professional, attentive and caring. I knew what to expect and felt in good hands.


Dr. Mustoe took time to answer all of my questions and was so considerate.

Face Lift

Dr. Mustoe extremely knowledgeable and qualified in all aspects of cosmetic procedures. He’s informative, kind and professional. I have complete trust in him.
