Plastic Surgeon

A warm and caring board-certified physician who has been recognized as one of America’s Top Doctors by Castle Connolly and the Consumer Research Council.

As a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience, Dr. Daw practices the full scope of aesthetic surgery of the face (facelift, rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty) and body (liposuction, breast augmentation, abdominoplasty). He appreciates the importance of establishing relationships with his patients. His appointments are never rushed, and he spends a great deal of time listening to his patients’ concerns and wishes and educates them on their options, so they can understand their procedures and be comfortable with their decisions. Dr. Daw also routinely performs cosmetic procedures for children and teens focused around otoplasty (protruding ears), rhinoplasty, male/female breast reduction and breast asymmetry.

Dr. Daw received his dental degree in 1986 from Loyola University School of Dentistry in Maywood, Illinois, and his medical degree from Hahnemann University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1991. He completed his residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, Illinois, and his plastic surgery training at Northwestern University-McGaw Medical Center. He also underwent an intensive fellowship training in craniofacial surgery at the Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City in 1998.

Prior to joining the DuPage Medical Group, Dr. Daw was Chief of Craniofacial Surgery at the University of Illinois at Chicago and served on the faculty in plastic surgery at the University of Illinois at Chicago Medical School. He currently is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Surgery with the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. He is affiliated with Hinsdale, Good Samaritan, Central DuPage, Elmhurst Memorial and Edward Hospitals and is also on staff at The Surgical Center of DuPage Medical Group.

Dr. Daw is certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
