I went by reputation and hospital affiliation (Northwestern). As a doctor myself, I can be quite critical of the performance of other doctors. I have had some good doctors, some abysmal doctors, and everything in between. Dr. Mustoe is excellent. After relaying my concerns to him, Dr. Mustoe clearly laid out a plan of action and told me what to expect post-op and long-term. When a revision was necessary, he acted quickly to maximize the chances for an optimal result. He took my follow up appointments promptly. Also, his fees were reasonable and all-inclusive (in that they included all follow up appointments and any additional work that needed to be done). He gave me a set of photos pre-op and had me compare them with my current appearance, and I couldn't be happier.

I was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Mustoe on various levels, from his knowledge and expertise in his field, his composed and elegant demeanor, to his wound management methods and commitment to optimal results. He is a champion plastic surgeon with the credentials and results to prove it. He is highly regarded and recommended, look no further.

Dr. Mustoe came highly recommended from a co-worker. My mom was pleased with the doctor and his staff after I came out of surgery. The doctor paid great attention to my mom, while she was waiting for me. He answered all her questions, and that meant the most to me. I am very pleased with the outcome of my procedure. Doctor, nurses and staff were always helpful and there when i needed them. Thank you.

Dr. Mustoe was the only surgeon I approached, even though I knew of others, because of his reputation, experience and credentials. My daughter is a doctor and was supportive of me having facelift surgery. She made professional inquiries from those in the cosmetic surgery field and learned of Dr. Mustoe's skill and reputation. She accompanied me to every consultation with him and was as impressed as I am. I am thrilled with the results and with the treatment I had from Dr. Mustoe, his office staff, and the surgical center. He was very honest with me in explaining what outcomes to expect, including the risks, and has interacted with me many times by phone and in person.

My reasons for choosing Dr. Mustoe for a breast lift were based upon his ability to listen patiently to me, to articulate honestly what he believed would produce the best result, and to explain clearly the procedure in non-technical terms. Dr. Mustoe's thoughtful candor, together with his impressive credentials and ratings, enabled me to trust him without reservation and accept his recommendation with confidence. Dr. Mustoe proved to be an outstanding choice, and I am thrilled with the outcome.

I have followed him in Chicago magazine, as he is featured in the Top Doctors edition year after year. I recommended him to two friends who became patients and were extremely satisfied.

It's too soon to write a full review of Dr. Mustoe. Thus far, he and his staff have been super. I will be adding to this section later. I don't know what the total cost of my reduction will be. As of right now, I've not paid a cent.

Dr. Mustoe and staff are wonderful. In all my appointments Dr. Mustoe was highly professional and honest. He took his time answering all my questions, and I never felt rushed. Dr. Mustoe is “no frills,” which I appreciated – he is honest, straightforward, and I always felt 100% confident in his skill. I am the type of person that avoids doctors/surgery at all costs, but on surgery day he made me feel completely comfortable and I knew I was in good hands. Everyone at the surgery center is awesome, and made me feel totally at ease. The procedure was quick, and I walked out of there a few hours later feeling pretty great considering the fact that I had just had surgery. I had the slightest bit of pain that night, but within 24 hours, I was feeling good enough to have a get together with my girlfriends. It was a VERY easy recovery. I am extremely happy with the results – Dr. Mustoe was completely accurate with the implant size he suggested and the size I would be after surgery. He is definitely the best in his field, a talented surgeon, and seems to genuinely care about his patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Mustoe and staff to all.

I have wanted breast implants for 13 years. I also wanted nipple reduction as well due to puffy nipples. I finally had the income at age 28 to get this done. I researched 'best plastic surgeons in Chicago' and Dr. Mustoe kept popping up. I read reviews on him and also reviews on other Dr.'s and came to the conclusion that Dr. Mustoe was the best. I was so scared to have breast implants done because I have seen some pretty terrible implants on random people. I scheduled the consultation and the Dr and I decided ok the right implant size for me which was 450cc Saline under the muscle implants inserted under the breast. After meeting Dr. Mustoe, I knew right away that he was the right choice. He was extremely knowledgable and professional. I trusted him instantly!!! It has been almost 3 months since my procedure and I am so so so so so so so happy with the results that I cannot find words! My breasts look natural and fantastic! The heeling process only took 3 days and one week to be 100%! it's just amazing and I am telling all of my friends that he is THE Dr. to go to for breast implants and my nipple reduction is completely perfect. I am so happy that I look in the mirror and stare at my own breasts in disbelief at the perfection that I are. So there it is, my wonderful experience with Dr. Mustoe. He has changed my life, I am so happy that years come to my eyes!

Dr. Mustoe is very nice and professional. I have suffered with facial scars and facial atrophy from the overuse of Kenalog injections used to treat my acne, by a well-intended dermatologist. Dr. Mustoe's name was given to me as someone who knew a lot about fat transfer and facial rejuvenation. I have actually had a couple of fat transfer procedures from him. Dr. Mustoe is always very upfront about what he thinks can be achieved, and has been willing to help with newly approved products that he trusts. He is discriminating about which products are worth the money or are safe enough. He seems genuinely kind and concerned. He's the best.
