In 1963, John L. Clayton, MD became one of only six board certified plastic surgeons in Utah. His three sons followed him into medicine. The two older brothers, John and David, both entered medical school at the University of Utah the same year and graduated with honors in 1976. They both then went to Detroit (Southfield), Michigan, for residencies in general surgery and then plastic surgery. Dr. David Clayton joined his father in 1981 and the group became officially known as “Clayton Plastic Surgery Specialists”. One year later, Dr. John N. Clayton became the 3rd member of the group (he had spent one extra year as Chief Resident in General Surgery prior to starting his plastic surgery residency).
Their younger brother, Paul, attended the University of Utah where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree at age 18. He earned his MD degree in 1979, and became an anesthesiologist in 1982. Dr. Paul Clayton has been the President of the Utah Society of Anesthesiologists (President of the “USA”), and still practices at Alta View Hospital.
Until Dr. John L. Clayton retired in 1997, Clayton Plastic Surgery Specialists was the largest family group of plastic surgeons practicing together in the United States. In 1983, they were the very first surgeons in Utah to do liposuction and were responsible for teaching many of the other local plastic surgeons about this operation. They are published in the international plastic surgery literature on the subject of large volume liposuction and have some of the longest experience with body contouring surgery in the nation.
In 2010, Drs. John and David Clayton were invited to join Intermountain Healthcare and to move their practice from Murray to its current location in the Alta View Specialty Center, located on the corner of 9400 South and 1300 East in Sandy, Utah.
Today, Clayton Plastic Surgery is still alive and well, practicing as part of a larger group of outstanding plastic surgeons – the Alta View Plastic Surgery Specialists. The Doctors Clayton specialize in all facets of cosmetic surgery for the face and body, and still care for their patients with the same excellence, artistry, precision, and concern for safety that was instilled in them by their father, and for which they have gained a national and even international reputation.
