Dr. Clayton's Care Philosophy

As one of Utah's most experienced board-certified plastic and cosmetic surgeons, I believe that the least expensive plastic surgery is the one done right the first time. I treat my patients the way I would want myself or my own family to be treated - with respect, precision, artistry, and safety. My patients know that they can call me on my cell phone directly for any questions or concerns. After all, that's the way I would want to be treated.

Dr Clayton was great. From the first consultation to the last appointment he really cared about you and what you wanted and expected. Dr Clayton performed breast augmentation and reduction. Every mammogram I have had since I have received compliments on the beautiful job he did. I had my nose done. Liposuction on my legs and stomach. He still does my Botox for me every six months! I would recommend him to my closest friends and family members. Many of them have all ready seen him.

Dr. Clayton performed my tummy tuck and the results are amazing. Even my OB/GYN said it was the best job she'd ever seen! Dr. Clayton was very attentive to my needs. He spent as much time as I needed to answer my questions and concerns. He was thorough in his explanations and gave much more information than I knew to ask. Everything he told me was just as the surgery and recovery played out. Dr. Clayton takes pride in his work and is very caring. He has moved to Trilogy Medical Ctr in Midvale UT

Dr. Clayton says...

Ever since my plastic surgeon father, John L. Clayton, MD, fixed my prominent ears when I was in high school, I have realized how important it can be to help people in ways that they cannot help themselves. This extends to the way we see ourselves, and the way we are seen in public. The confidence that comes with improvement in our appearance is powerful, and has been a motivator for me in the practice of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery for many years!

While the techniques of plastic surgery can be learned in residency, the art of cosmetic plastic surgery comes with experience. Having actively practiced cosmetic plastic surgery for over 35 years, I am very confident in my ability to evaluate a cosmetic problem, and repair it in the most beautiful, efficient, and cost effective way.

Dr. Clayton says...

As the first doctor in Utah to perform liposuction in 1983, I have the longest experience with this type of body contouring in Utah. My practice has been focused on all types of cosmetic surgery for over 30 years. I have participated in several national meetings as a lecturer in liposuction, and still enjoy performing facial cosmetic surgery as well as body contouring surgery.
