Newsweek collated the list of best plastic surgeons in America based on a survey carried out in partnership with Statista Inc, a world-renowned German statistical firm.
The survey polled plastic surgeons, asking them to rank their peers according to numerous criteria. A cummulation of the surveys informed the final standings.
Newsweek ranked plastic surgeons in four categories – breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, facelift and liposuction.
