Five comprehensive lists published June 4 by Newsweek magazine reveal America’s best plastic surgeons of 2023.
The lists contain the names of 358 US plastic surgeons who peers and other medical professionals say are the best in each of five popular procedures.
Individual lists rank the best plastic surgeons in liposuction, breast augmentation, facelift surgery, rhinoplasty, and blepharoplasty surgery.
More than 8,400 votes were cast by 2,000 doctors, surgeons, clinic managers, and other medical professionals, Newsweek says.
The lists represent the opinions not of patients, but of fellow providers.
Many of the best plastic surgeons as voted by peers are also highly-rated by patients, with rankings in the high 4- to 5-stars.
Beyond peer votes, Newsweek also considered two additional data sources: a quality score, and certification status, which granted board-certified plastic surgeons a 5 percent favor in ranking.
From March to April 2023, 2,000 individual surveys were conducted by Newsweek and Statista, a global survey research firm.
Surgeons in 30 states not ranked
Only doctors from the top 20 US states with the most plastic surgeons, as recorded by the US Census Bureau, were included in the survey and rankings.
Patients in 30 US states won’t find a local plastic surgeon on the lists of America’s best, though they may otherwise have qualified.
