In early 2021, Newsweek magazine and global data research firm Statista announced their joint collaboration on a first-ever national survey of peers to determine who are America’s best plastic surgeons.
In Search of The Top 2.5 Percent Of All Plastic Surgeons in America

Newsweek invited thousands of medical professionals and other board-certified plastic surgeons from across the nation to take part in the survey and over the next two months received more than 5,000 recommendations.

Newsweek/Statista then revealed the top 200 breast augmentation surgeons and the top 150 plastic surgeons in each of the other three categories.
