About Us

Linda L. Swanson, MD, FACS is leading the way for plastic surgeons in Southern California as a body contouring specialist, combining the skills of an expert with the perspective of a woman.

Woman physician Dr. Swanson has built a thriving private plastic surgery practice in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, California. She is a leading plastic surgeon who specializes in body contouring and facial rejuvenation procedures including abdominoplasty (tummy tucks), breast augmentation, breast lifts, liposuction, Smartlipo laser body sculpting, facelift, blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) and the Smart Skin Laser. As a woman, she understands that subtle changes often yield the most beautiful, feminine look.

Dr. Swanson not only draws on a wealth of experience from her  years of practice, but also remains at the forefront of innovation in the field. By keeping up with the latest medical and technological advances, Dr. Swanson provides you the safest procedures with the best results. Plastic surgery offers solutions that can change your life, and now with new minimally invasive procedures like the Smartlipo Triplex, plastic surgery is safer, faster, and more effective than ever before.

One of the newest and most exciting advances Dr. Swanson offers is Smartlipo Triplex. In fact, Dr. Linda Swanson is one of the few surgeons able to offer this technology not only in the South Bay (including Torrance, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach), but also in the greater Los Angeles area and even beyond the California border. Ideal for targeting trouble spots, Smartlipo Triplex creates dramatic results with less pain and downtime than traditional liposuction. Smartlipo Triplex is a laser-assisted liposuction performed with local anesthesia that permanently removes unwanted fat cells and tightens the skin tissue.

Regardless of whether you are interested in a tummy tuck, laser liposuction, breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, eyelid lift, facelift, or one of the other procedures Dr. Swanson offers, the best way find out what is right for you is to arrange a complimentary consultation with Dr. Swanson at one of her two South Bay offices (Torrance and Los Alamitos). At your consultation, 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.

In addition to the latest in body contouring and other plastic surgery procedures, Dr. Swanson’s office offers the Affirm CO2 Smart Skin Laser, which creates wonderful results by stimulating collagen, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing pore size,  tightening the overall look and much more. We also carry ZO Medical, Stemology and Revision Skincare lines to help you look your best.

Dr. Swanson is certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. Her affiliations include Fellow, American College of Surgeons (ACS), American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) 

Body Contouring

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) - Create a dramatically smoother, flatter appearance of the stomach with this outpatient abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedure.

Liposuction – Permanently remove unwanted collections of fat to create a smoother, more shapely figure. 

Smartlipo Triplex – Known as the “lunchtime lipo,” Smartlipo Triplex is a cutting edge laser lipo procedure that produces beautiful body sculpting results with an incredibly brief recovery period – many patients return to work the day after a treatment. A tiny incision is all that is needed for the Smartlipo Triplex laser fiber to “melt” and then eliminate unwanted fat cells – safely and permanently. Performed under local anesthesia, Smartlipo Triplex laser plastic surgery is less invasive, less painful, and more effective at creating smooth, well-proportioned results than traditional liposuction. Dr. Swanson performs the Smartlipo Triplex laser procedure in her Torrance office, which is one of the first facilities in the country to offer what is now the gold standard in laser lipo plastic surgery. If you want a smoother, more tightened appearance around your abdomen, arms, thighs or neck, Dr. Linda Swanson’s Smartlipo Triplex treatment may be the ideal choice for you.  

Body Combinations – Enhance your look with a combination surgery including abdominoplasty,  liposuction, breast lift, breast augmentation or any combination thereof.

Contouring after Massive Weight Loss - Dramatic weight loss can leave your skin appearing loose and sagging, and your body contours may look unharmonious.  In such instances, body contouring through the use of traditional or Smartlipo technology may be the final step to reaching the figure you desire.

Labiaplasty – Whether you are not happy with "the look" or simply experience discomfort with your labia minora, this outpatient procedure can greatly improve your comfort with your body.

Breast Enhancement

Breast Augmentation – Enhance the size, shape and balance of your breasts with this outpatient breast augmentation procedure.

Breast Lift – A breast lift can create a more beautiful and youthful silhouette. Dr. Swanson uses the new "minimal incision" technique for breast lifts, which as the name implies, keeps scarring to a minimum.

Breast Combination - By simultaneously combining a breast lift with breast augmentation, your breasts can appear not only fuller, but also more youthful.

Breast Reduction – Experience greater mobility and comfort after a breast reduction.  Dr. Swanson will use the new "minimal incision" technique.  Breast reduction is a common procedure for men as well as women.

Facial Procedures

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift) - Remove the excess fat, skin, and/or muscle around the eyes to achieve a more rested, youthful appearance with this common eyelid lift procedure.

Otoplasty (Ear Pinning) – A subtler look can be attained by permanently attaching the ears closer to the skull in a procedure known as otoplasty.

Rhytidectomy (Facelift) – A facelift is a popular facial rejuvenation procedure for both men and women

Injectibles & Fillers – Obtain a more vibrant, youthful look with Botox, Juvederm, or Radiesse and Belotero
