Best Plastic Surgeons - Facelift

America's Best Plastic Surgeons 2022

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons' most recent statistics, in 2020 American spent $16.7 billion on 15 million cosmetic medical procedures on their skin, including both surgery like liposuction and minimally invasive procedures, like Botox injections and chemical peels. Although the numbers for all kinds of procedures were down somewhat from the previous year as a result of the pandemic, that is still a lot of money. Interestingly, most of it is being spent on women: the vast majority (92 percent) of patients for both minimally invasive treatments and surgery were female. The most popular cosmetic surgery was rhinoplasty, followed in order by eyelid surgery, face lift, liposuction and breast augmentation.

As part of Newsweek's continuing commitment to helping our readers make informed medical choices, we've partnered with Statista Inc,. the global market research and customer data firm, to find America's Best Plastic Surgeons 2022. We're proud to introduce for the first time a comprehensive ranking covering the entire country. We surveyed over 2,000 skin healthcare professionals and asked them to recommend the best plastic surgeons in the business. Then, we ranked the top 100 in each of five the five most popular kinds of surgery. In total, 349 individual plastic surgeons were ranked, with some being recognized for more than one procedure.

We hope you will find this ranking useful in making your own healthcare decisions.

METHODOLOGY
The America's Best Plastic Surgeon 2022 ranking awards the leading plastic surgeons in the U.S. Plastic surgeons were awarded in five major cosmetic surgery procedure categories: Breast Augmentation, Liposuction, Facelift, Rhinoplasty and Eyelid Surgery. The top 150 plastic surgeons were awarded for breast augmentation, liposuction, facelift and rhinoplasty.

The top 100 plastic surgeons were awarded for eyelid surgery (Overlaps can occur if one plastic surgeon offers several procedures). In total, 349 individual plastic surgeons were awarded.

Plastic surgeons who exclusively offer reconstruction or non-elective reconstruction/correction were excluded from the survey. Plastic surgeons from the 20 U.S. states with the most plastic surgeons were included in the survey: California, Indiana, Florida, Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, New Jersey, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Michigan, Arizona, Maryland, Massachusetts, Washington, Tennessee, Connecticut, Minnesota.

The remaining states were divided into four regions for the survey:
o Northeast: Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont
o Midwest: Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Missouri
o West: Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Wyoming
o South: Alabama,Arkansas, Delaware, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, West Virginia

During the survey period from March to April 2022, over 2,000 medical experts with knowledge of plastic surgery (doctors/surgeons, plastic surgery clinic managers and healthcare professionals) were invited to an online survey in cooperation with Newsweek. Over 5,900 votes for plastic surgeons were collected and analyzed for each cosmetic surgery procedure.


Scoring
A score was calculated for each plastic surgeon based on the number of recommendations, a quality assessment (from the peer survey) as well as relevant certifications. In-State recommendations were weighted higher than Out-of-State recommendations, followed by the quality assessment score and the certifications.

In-State Recommendations
Survey participants were asked to name the leading plastic surgeons for each cosmetic procedure in their own state. The order in which recommendations were provided was relevant to the ranking (number 1 has the highest weight). Self-recommendations were not allowed and led to disqualification from the survey. In-State recommendations constitute 45% of the overall score.

Out-of-State Recommendations
Participants were asked to name leading plastic surgeons for each cosmetic procedure outside their own state for the whole U.S. (either one of the 20 most populous states or by region). Out-of-State recommendations constitute 35% of the overall score.

Quality Score
For their In-State recommendations, participants were asked to assess the quality of care (e.g. consultation with doctor, complications, follow-up care, outcome) to further differentiate the perceived reputation of each plastic surgeon. For each recommended plastic surgeon, the participant rated the quality of care on a scale from 1 ("Poor") to 10 ("Excellent"). A quality score was assigned to each plastic surgeon. This score accounts for 15% of the total score.

Accreditation Score
The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) accreditation is a voluntary credential for plastic surgeons in the U.S. Plastic surgeons certified by the ABPS must have completed appropriate training and passed oral examinations and comprehensive written covering all plastic surgery procedures. Plastic surgeons receive a 5% bonus to their score if they have a ABPS certification.

The rankings are composed exclusively of plastic surgeons that are eligible regarding the scope described here. A mention in the ranking is a positive recognition based on peer recommendations. The ranking is the result of an elaborate process which, due to the interval of data-collection and analysis, is a reflection of the last 12 months only. Furthermore, any events following May 17, 2022, were not considered in the metrics. As such, the results of this ranking should not be used as the sole source of information for future deliberations. The information provided in this ranking should be considered in conjunction with other available information about plastic surgeons or, if possible, accompanied by a visit to the clinic. The quality of plastic surgeons that are not included in the rankings is not disputed.
