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.

Face Lift

Very pleased with Dr. Mustoe....manner, knowledge, experience, ability to explain.


The consultation was very efficient and informative. Dr. Mustoe is a true professional and was very honest about the expected result.

Face Lift

Dr. Mustoe was great he listened to my concerns and spent time explaining everything. The staff were very helpful as well. Overall great experience.


The office was very clean and professional-looking. Dr. Mustoe's personality made it very easy for me to feel comfortable asking questions and I left feeling good about my future procedure. I was surprised that he spent almost 1.5 hours walking me through everything.

Face Lift

I felt confident in the doctor.

Face Lift

Dr. Mustoe is simply the best Plastic Surgeon! Experienced, a perfectionist, and very realistic. Warm and engaging personal style and very professional.

Face Lift

I had a lower face and neck lift. I look at least 10 years younger. It looks so natural, people don't notice that the surgery was performed.


Both the staff and Dr. Mustoe were totally professional, courteous, and respectful. I felt I was in the hand of a very competent physician.

Face Lift

Dr. Mustoe is a skilled surgeon and my results are fantastic! I healed quickly and easily and Dr. Mustoe was careful to make sure my pain, although minimal, was managed. I am a little afraid of general anesthesia. Dr. Mustoe did my facelift with injections, and very little drugs. I was awake the entire time and completely without pain. I recovered faster because I didn't have anesthesia and the results are remarkable!

Face Lift

Dr. Mustoe is very thorough. Listened to what I had to say. Never rushed me.


Dr. Mustoe really took the time out to explain everything in detail and answered all of my questions thoroughly. I didn’t feel rushed by him like I have with other surgeons.

Face Lift

Dr. Mustoe is a patient, kind and wise surgeon/human being ... he fully understands aesthetics and does not push procedures into awkwardness. His techniques allows for rapid and seamless recovery. So happy I found him!

Neck Lift

This was my first experience with facial surgery. I was nervous and had a lot of questions. Dr. Mustoe spent a great deal of time patiently and honestly answering my many questions (sometimes more than once), and I appreciated that he was candid about what I might expect as a reasonable outcome for my age and individual situation. I left the consult feeling confident that he was the surgeon I wanted.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Only 10 days out from surgery and I love what I see. Can’t wait to see once fully healed. Dr. Mustoe exceeded my expectations. My noes is so cute!!


Very thorough and informative. Used before and after pictures to show outcome. Easy to talk to and understand. Highly recommend!

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Mustoe was so knowledgeable about recommendations for me. He helped he decide on an appropriate size to make sure I would be happy on end the even though I was so hesitant. In the end, the size was perfect!!

Tummy Tuck

After one pregnancy I decided to look into my first surgical procedure at 23 years old, I was advised to find the correct doctor through Real Self and after scrolling through several Board Certified Doctors I decided to book my consultation with Dr. Thomas Mustoe based on his 35 years of experience. And I am thankful and blessed to say I made the correct choice! He is very gentle and polite also he is not a salesman, he is straight forward without being disrespectful, I was so pleased with my Breast Augmentation/Breast Lift on [date] that I decided to book a Tummy Tuck about 2 months after on [date]. I am currently 1 week post op and I am loving my results! Most important, let me say Dr. Thomas Mustoe has an amazing Bedside Manner, he gives you his personal cellphone/house number incase of any question or concerns and he answers on the first call! Another thing, after both procedures I noticed I had little to no bruising! His 35 years of experience definitely shows. If you are looking into Dr. Thomas Mustoe for any procedures, do not overthink! You will be in the best hands! :)

Fat Transfer

Dr. Mustoe was excellent at listening to me when I explained what I was hoping to achieve. He performed exactly what I asked for.


Dr. Mustoe clearly cares about his patients. He spent over an hour and a half walking me through the procedure, expectations, and answering all my questions. He was very considerate and really put me to ease throughout the whole process.

Tummy Tuck

The surgeon and his staff were easily accessible at all times for communication.
