America's Best Plastic Surgeons 2021 - Rhinoplasty

America's Best Plastic Surgeons 2021

Newsweek has long been committed to providing our readers with the information they need to make the best possible healthcare choices for themselves and their loved ones. As part of that continuing commitment, this year, for the first time, we've partnered with Statista Inc,. the global market research and customer data firm, to find America's Best Plastic Surgeons.

We've ranked them in four categories: Breast Augmentation, Liposuction, Facelift and Rhinoplasty. To determine the winners, we conducted a national survey among plastic surgeons, asking them to recommend the best plastic surgeons in their state as well as across the U.S.. Additionally, participants were asked to rank their peers according to several quality dimensions.

The rankings feature the top 200 plastic surgeons for Breast Augmentation and the top 150 for Liposuction, Facelift, and Rhinoplasty. In total, 387 individual plastic surgeons were ranked, with some being recognized for more than one procedure.

We're proud to offer this ranking and hope you will find it useful in making your own healthcare decisions.

America's Best Plastic Surgeons 2021 recognizes the best plastic surgeons in the U.S in four major procedures (Breast Augmentation, Liposuction, Facelift, Rhinoplasty). The procedures were chosen by total number of procedures per year and market volume in the U.S. They are among the procedures with the highest total expenditure in the U.S.

Statista invited almost 3.000 medical experts (doctors/surgeons, plastic surgery clinic managers and healthcare professionals) to participate in an online survey. Participants were asked to recommend plastic surgeons in the U.S. who offer at least one of these four procedures. Survey participants could recommend plastic surgeons in their own state as well as for all of the U.S. Most plastic surgeons who made the final list offer multiple procedures. The rankings feature the top 200 plastic surgeons for Breast Augmentation and the top 150 for Liposuction, Facelift, and Rhinoplasty, respectively. Some surgeons were ranked among the best in more than one category.

Our complex methodology ensures the quality and validity of the ranking. The evaluation process was comprised of two steps:

Plastic surgeon recommendations from peers: an independent national survey which resulted in more than 5,000 recommendations from doctors/surgeons, plastic surgery clinic managers and healthcare professionals with knowledge of plastic surgery.

Quality Score: additionally, participants were asked to rank plastic surgeons according to specific quality dimensions. Participants were asked to differentiate between these variables:
- Quality of surgery preparation (e.g., consultation with doctor, information)
- Quality of surgical procedure (e.g, complications)
- Quality of follow-up care (e.g., follow-up checks)
- Quality of surgical outcomes (e.g., desired outcome of procedures)

For each category, the respondents were asked to rate plastic surgeons on a scale from 1 ("Poor") to 7 ("Excellent"). A quality score was assigned to each plastic surgeon based on a weighted average of these ratings.
