Board-certified plastic surgeon and former Professor and Chief of Plastic Surgery at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Dr. Thomas A. Mustoe has opened his own practice to give his patients even more personalized service. The new practice located at 737 N Michigan Ave. Suite 1500 in Chicago opened July 1, 2014.
The new, 4,000 SF custom designed office is located only 3 blocks from Dr. Mustoe's previous office at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. It has been built not only with a surgeon's exact requirements in mind, but with a goal to offer a more comfortable surrounding that has less of a clinic feel than traditional doctor's offices.
"While my association with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine will continue, as well as my affiliation with Northwestern Memorial Hospital, I have decided to open my own practice to serve my patients," says Dr. Mustoe.
Dr. Mustoe has worked with Northwestern University for 23 years and has served as Chief of Plastic Surgery at the Feinberg School of Medicine for 19 years. His decision to open his own private practice was borne of his desire to continually put his patients first. The smaller operation allows patients faster and more direct access to a plastic surgeon, as well as more responsiveness and personalized attention from the office staff.
"I'm extremely proud and grateful of my 23 year association with Northwestern, having served as Chief of Plastic Surgery for 19 of those years," says Dr. Mustoe.“With the help of some fantastic people we've built an academic program that is among the most sought-after residency programs in the country."
The new practice is called TLKM Plastic Surgery, LLC after the initials of his family members. It features three exam rooms, an aesthetician's treatment room with state-of-the-art laser technology, and a fully-equipped operating room for the full range of procedures performed under local anesthesia and light oral sedation. The reception/waiting room is warm and comfortable with Wi-Fi access. Consultations are enhanced with 3-D imaging, Touch MD, and other technology to optimize the educational experience for patients seeking plastic surgery in Chicago. The new location also offers more and easier parking.
The new office with operating room will allow Dr. Mustoe to provide surgical procedures such as blepharoplasty, browlifts, moderate liposuction, mini facelifts and neck lifts, limited nasal surgery, fat grafting, dermabrasion, laser resurfacing and other minor procedures not requiring general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Larger procedures such as rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, facelifts and tummy tucks will be performed at a highly regarded surgical center within walking distance, 900 North Michigan Surgical Center or Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
