ABOUT DR. SWANSON

Body Contouring Specialist: Combining the Skill of an Expert with the Perspective of a Woman

Growing up in Palos Verdes, Dr. Linda Swanson grew accustomed to surrounding herself with the sunshine and beauty of the South Bay. After graduating from Stanford Medical School, however, she left California to become the very first woman to complete plastic surgery residency at the University of Virginia. From there, she became one of the first women to complete plastic surgery residency at New York University. Dr. Swanson returned to the South Bay in 1990, as a highly trained specialist in plastic surgery with a focus on body contouring procedures.
                   
While she draws on a wealth of experience from her years of practice, woman physician Dr. Linda Swanson remains at the forefront of innovation in the field. She uses the most advanced techniques in body contouring procedures, with an expertise in abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), all breast surgeries and liposuction. In fact, Dr. Swanson’s Torrance office is one of the first facilities in the entire country to offer Smartlipo Triplex, which creates dramatic results with less pain and downtime than traditional liposuction.
                   
Regardless of which areas you want to focus on, helping you achieve your desired look is Dr. Swanson’s top priority. At your consultation, Dr. Swanson will do the most important thing a doctor can to ensure success: She will listen to you! She will evaluate the changes you would like to make and will discuss all of the options available, explaining which procedures will most help you reach your desired look. Rest assured that you will leave her office with a realistic idea of the results to expect. As a woman, she understands the subtle changes can yield a more beautiful, feminine silhouette.
