WINNETKA, IL, February 01, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — John Q. Cook, MD, has been recognized as a 2023 Castle Connolly Top Doctor — the 23rd time he has received the prestigious Top Doctor honor! Only about 7 percent of the nation’s licensed physicians are selected annually as Castle Connolly Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties.

A respected plastic surgeon and Chicago native, Dr. Cook is the founder and medical director of Whole Beauty Institute. He performs a wide range of sophisticated cosmetic and reconstructive procedures — both surgical and non-surgical — for the face, breasts, and body.

Dr. Cook is especially known for using leading-edge techniques in facial-rejuvenation surgery, plastic surgery of the breasts, and advanced body-contour surgery. Many procedures are minimally invasive or non-invasive.

He performs procedures that include abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”); rhinoplasty (“nose job”); liposuction, including laser and tumescent liposuction; brow lift, including endoscopic brow lift; facelift; blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery); fat transfer; dermal filler and botulinum toxin injections; and breast augmentation, reconstruction, and reduction.

Dr. Cook is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

“My guiding mission is to restore the form, function, and visual harmony to the face, breasts, and body,” he says.

“For facial procedures, for instance, by doing a very detailed, personalized analysis of each patient — sometimes even looking at old photos — I understand that person’s fundamental facial expressive identity. Then we create a customized surgical plan that follows the patient’s unique natural facial contours.”

One of the Midwest’s first practices to integrate surgical expertise with medical aesthetics, Whole Beauty Institute has at its core an emphasis on skill, safety, and service.

The practice has a Chicago/Gold Coast location and a Winnetka/North Shore location.

In addition to Dr. Cook’s clinical activities, he serves as an assistant professor of plastic surgery Rush Medical College.

Top Doctors are nominated by peer physicians and selected by the physician-led Castle Connolly research team.

Dr. Cook earned his medical degree at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. He completed a four-year surgery residency at the Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center and a three-year plastic surgery residency at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

He speaks English, French, and German.
