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

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!

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.

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

Tummy Tuck

Surgery was April 2018. Was told I would be driving in 2 days. Did not happen and was in incredible pain. Was only allowed 1 week of pain pills...had to ask for a 2nd round of pain meds. Was taking 16 ibuprofen daily until just recently, am down to 8. It is now Sept 2018 and still having a lot of pain. Saw my primary last week for routine physical and he noticed no infection and said things appear to look great. The other thing I was not happy about is that I still don't have a waistline...but that just may be my body type. I'm just happy to have lived....did not get an infection and did not need any corrective procedures...yet.

Face Lift

Dr. Mustoe and his staff were very professional, knowledgeable and friendly.

Mommy Makeover

Dr Mustoe listened all my needs and concerns. My consultation was 1 hour long, as an asian patient I was very concern about my scar. He took all the time to show scars of other patients and explained in detail the whole surgery. In the day of the surgery, he was very polite and his bedside manners was incredible. All the nurses were very nice. What impressed me the most about Dr Mustoe is he gave me all his telephone numbers (including his home phone) and he make a consultation about my drain in his house on a Saturday morning. I took me 5 months to give a feed back, because I really wanted tell about my results and it is fantastic, super happy with my surgery overall.

Face Lift

All my questions and outcome were answered.My doctor took all the time I needed. I felt well cared for.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Mustoe and his team lived up to their spectacular reputation. They were referred to me by a friend and their website answered preliminary questions. For me, the consultation confirmed what I already knew from the referral and website. My direct interactions with each of the staff solidified my choice to work with this medical group as their professionalism and approach allowed me to feel in control of the process.


I was highly impressed with Dr. Mustoe's professionalism, knowledge, compassion and class!!!!

Eyelid Surgery

I have been a patient of Dr. Mustoe for many years. I am always impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of his staff. I have always been extremely satisfied with any procedure I have had done with Dr. Mustoe. Expectations are clearly explained to me and I have always had a great result. Scars are always hidden very well and I have never had a complication. My recovery has also always been very quick and comfortable with prescribed after care. Dr. Mustoe is an excellent surgeon who I have trusted time and time again. The results from my face lift and breast augmentation look very natural while taking years off of my appearance. I feel confident that most people would not know that I have had work done.
