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.

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.

I've known Dr. Thomas Mustoe for years. He never disappoints. I am now thinking my next surgery with him.


My expectations were higher than the results.

The office was very clean and organized. The consultation I had was thorough and Dr. Mustoe spent time to discuss the procedure with me and make me feel comfortable. He shared his background and made me feel at ease in choosing him for my upcoming surgery. I was very impressed with the office and staff.

Dr. Mustoe is patient, takes the time to review and answer all questions. He is knowledgeable and provides ease to those who may be looking for answers regarding their procedure. He is certainly n subject matter expert in the field.


I trust Dr. Mustoe. He's very experienced and truthful. You know exactly what your result will be. I trust him. To me that's important when you are talking about cosmetic procedures. He takes the time to do the procedure in a way to get the best out come. Even if it's just filler.


The scar diminished quite a bit after Dr. Mustoe’s procedure. I was very happy with the results. I would like to look into other future procedures.


Very pleased, only one day of discomfort, no pain. Great job; I would never ever trust any other physician so highly. I respect the fact that he had to focus for such a long period of time, and I respect his perfectionism, and experience as a long time highly qualified physician.

Breast Implant Revision

The entire process from consultation to recovery was seamless. His staff is top-notch and he was available on short notice to address an allergic reaction I had to the surgical tape. Everything went as planned with little to no pain.

Breast Augmentation

This is my second procedure with Dr. Mustoe. My first was a face lift. He is an expert surgeon who is excellent with his patients, explains everything, and is highly gifted at what he does. The results are beautiful. The office staff is very professional and help with both pre and after care. The after care has been thorough and helpful.

Dr. Mustoe is one of the top BEST plastic surgeons in the world! I trust him with my life! [Single best thing is...] No drooping of eyes and no bruising!

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Mustoe and his staff are OFF THE CHARTS amazing!!!! I came to him with a mess from a previous surgery. The previous Dr. claimed he performed the procedure and it was a success. I left with the exact same hanging skin with an added scar that was above my pant line. I found Dr. Mustoe and chose him because of the reviews that I read. I was impressed! I have medical issues and was concerned about going through the procedure again but, after speaking to him, I was confident to move forward. Dr. Mustoe performed his magic and I could not be happier! He takes the time to listen and always accommodated me at the times that I needed to see him! He was always available and, the poor guy, I always had 9,000 questions post-op. He is so patient. He has become more of a friend to my husband and I than my Dr. His staff is SO welcoming and we are beyond blessed to have chosen him! Thank you Dr. Mustoe and staff! You are all the BEST!!!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I have had three procedures with Dr. Mustoe and all were successful and had minimal recovery time. Dr. Mustoe and his entire staff are wonderful to work with and highly skilled. [Single best thing is...] Minimal anesthesia. Dr. Mustoe's stitching is outstanding.

Excellent results - very satisfied!!!! [Single best thing is...] Doctor's professionalism


Everyone was very professional and considered all of your thoughts and fears about surgery as well as explained everything to you.
