How was your appointment with Dr. Swanson?

Jun 23, 2020
I choose Dr. Linda Swanson after reviewing 3 other surgeons, two in Beverly Hills. I needed a revision due to a deflated saline implant of 20 years on one side and cap contracture on the other side. Dr. Swanson was very honest and upfront what the best result would be for me but also respected what I wanted. And this was one reason I choose her. I then was convinced I choose the right surgeon when 1) my surgery was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, she not only called me to keep me informed when my procedure could go forth, she also sent me cards and even made masks for me. This is a caring doctor that cares about her patients/people. 2) the results... amazing.. so much that I will also have Dr. Swanson perform a neck and facelift I have long wanted. Her office team is wonderful. The nurse that assisted me, Debbie the office manager fantastic; the anesthesiologist outstanding. Thank you Dr. Swanson for a great result for a difficult revision. I highly recommend Dr. Swanson.
