Dr. Luke Swistun

Dr. Swistun completed the majority of his medical and general surgical training in the metropolitan Chicago area, gaining broad exposure in treatment of diverse populations and surgical conditions. His experience was further enriched by his military active duty service with the US Marines as a Battalion Surgeon, including two combat deployments to the front lines of the conflict in Iraq, between 2005-09.

Dr. Swistun attended the University of Chicago majoring in Visual Arts, and University of Illinois for medical school. He then went on to complete a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Residency at the University of Utah, perfecting the nuances of operating on the hand, breast, craniofacial anomalies, lower extremity reconstruction and aesthetics. An Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Fellowship in Beverly Hills and certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery rounded off his surgical training.

A cornerstone of Dr. Swistun’s approach is treating every patient as if they were family. He stays true to their lifetime goals and aesthetic desires with unmatched compassion, availability, and clear communication throughout every step of treatment and recovery.

Dr. Swistun is happily married for over 20 years, a father of 3 boys, passionate about time with his family, and maintains his artistic skills with drawing and photography. He is a published freelance photographer and a winner of multiple regional contests. Along with his wife, he fell in love with Southern California during his Navy service, and together they are here to stay.
