Growing up on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, in Southern California, Dr. Swanson became accustomed to surrounding herself with sunshina and beauty. She left California, however, upon completion of medical school at Stanford University to pursue her passion for surgery. In 1984, she became the first woman to complete a general surgery residency at the University of Virginia. Going on to be one of the first women to complete plastic surgery residency at New York University, Dr. Swanson returned to California in 1990, as a highly trained specialist in the field of plastic surgery.
Since her return, Dr. Swanson has built a successful private practice, providing each patient with meticulous care from beginning to end. She respects her patients, and along with being an expert surgeon, she ia a woman, who understands a patient's needs. At your consultation, Dr. Swanson will do the most important thing a doctor can do to ensure success. She will listen to you! She will evaluate the changes you would like to make, and the result you hope to achieve. Then, she will discuss, in detail, all of the options available, explaining which means will most help you reach your desired ends. Rest assured, you will leave her office with realistic ideas of the results to expect.
