Newsweek 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.
