Gaon Plastic Surgery
Excellence. Artistry. Results.
Our mission is the pursuit of perfection in all that we do.
Dr. Mark Gaon is a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon who has earned board certification through the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and is an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). He is wholly committed to providing the highest standards of patient care and safety, with an eye toward achieving exceptionally artistic results that delight his patients and enhance their self-confidence.
Dr. Gaon has a background working with patients who require reconstructive surgery. This provides him with a unique perspective and blend of competencies that many other plastic surgeons lack. He is passionate about helping his patients’ inner beauty become apparent in their physical features.
At Gaon Plastic Surgery, no patient ever becomes lost in the crowd. Dr. Gaon prides himself on his personal attention for every patient, striving to always deliver a customized journey from start to finish. He believes in actively involving each patient in the treatment planning process, emphasizing patient education and informed decision-making.
When you become a patient at Gaon Plastic Surgery, you will work closely with Dr. Gaon at every appointment, including postoperative follow-up visits. Dr. Gaon takes pride in offering a highly individualized level of patient-centered concierge care. Unlike at most plastic surgery practices, our patients are never handed off to surgical assistants before, during, or after their procedures.
It is this exceptional level of individualized care that distinguishes Dr. Gaon from other plastic surgeons. Following his philosophy of “No key fits every lock,” Dr. Gaon develops a personalized treatment plan for each patient based on their unique anatomy, aesthetic goals, and lifestyle. Patient input is welcomed and encouraged. At Gaon Plastic Surgery, patients are true participants in their own care.
Many of our patients choose Gaon Plastic Surgery because of Dr. Gaon’s reputation as a highly trained, extensively experienced surgeon. After graduating from Stanford University with his undergraduate degree, Dr. Gaon earned his medical degree at Tulane University School of Medicine. He then completed his six-year residency training at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, focusing on general surgery, trauma, and critical care. Following his residency, Dr. Gaon completed plastic surgery fellowship training at The Methodist Hospital at the prestigious Texas Medical Center in Houston.
As a third-generation physician and second-generation plastic surgeon, Dr. Gaon knew from an early age that medicine was his true calling in life. He felt called to work in the demanding field of plastic and reconstructive surgery because he understands that changes to one’s physical appearance can be a holistically transformative experience that nurtures self-confidence. As a Newport Beach native, Dr. Gaon takes pride in using his skills to benefit members of his community.
Throughout his years of training, Dr. Gaon has been fortunate to receive guidance from some of the top professionals in facial, body, and breast surgery. His approach involves enhancing each patient’s natural beauty to produce aesthetically-pleasing, natural-looking results.
A woman’s feminine silhouette is significantly influenced by the fullness of her breasts. Whether from pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging, the breasts can lose fullness over time. In addition, genetics play a role in determining the shape, symmetry, and fullness. Women who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their breasts may choose to undergo a breast augmentation with FDA-approved silicone or saline implants. At Gaon Plastic Surgery, we provide extensive guidance to help you choose the right implants for your needs.
The most important choice you can make about enhancing your breasts is finding the right cosmetic surgeon. Dr. Gaon is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and an active member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons. A second-generation plastic surgeon, Dr. Gaon also trained with his father Dr. Avro Gaon for many years. Dr. Gaon has performed thousands of breast enhancement procedures.
Choosing between saline or silicone implants is a personal decision. Dr. Gaon is happy to talk with you about the pros and cons of the different options.
We welcome you to schedule a complimentary consultation at our office, or from the convenience of your home. Dr. Gaon is available to talk with you about all of your breast enhancement options. Please call us at 949-642-3424 or send us an email.
Although perky breasts are aesthetically desirable, the effects of pregnancy, significant weight loss, the loss of skin elasticity, the natural aging process, and gravity can all cause the breasts to sag. Drooping breasts can leave women feeling a loss of self-esteem and wondering if they look older than they really are. A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, restores the perky, youthful appearance of the breasts. Often, women choose to combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation, which can be done as a single surgery.
When the breasts are too large or out of proportion with the rest of the body, a woman can feel overly self-conscious. Furthermore, shoulder, back, and neck pain, as well as pressure and irritation from bra straps, are all common effects of large breasts. Women may opt for a breast reduction procedure to find relief from these physical symptoms, as well as achievement of their desired appearance. A breast reduction can also be an appropriate option for women with asymmetry of the breasts.
Face Lift & Mini Face Lift
Aging is an inevitable process, but looking older is optional. Normal age-related changes include sagging of the skin, loss of volume in the cheeks, development of jowls at the jawline, and deepening of the folds extending from the corner of the mouth to the side of the nose. If you’re troubled by the signs of aging on your face and injectables are no longer sufficient to turn back the clock, Dr. Gaon can perform a facelift to restore a more youthful appearance. A mini facelift is appropriate for patients who are primarily concerned with sagging on the lower half of the face. It requires fewer incisions than a traditional facelift.
Widely considered to be among the most technically challenging of all plastic surgeries, rhinoplasty involves making aesthetic (and sometimes functional) changes to the nose. Dr. Gaon is exceptionally skilled with rhinoplasty surgeries. His artistic eye allows him to sculpt the nose so that it is in proper proportion with the rest of the face, creating a natural-looking result. A rhinoplasty can correct all types of nasal defects, ranging from asymmetrical bumps to a bulbous tip to a deviated septum.
Other Lifts & Face Augmentations
Neck lifts are performed to eliminate excess fat deposits, repair weakened neck muscles, and correct sagging skin, including jowls. This plastic surgery restores the youthful definition of the neck. Many patients choose to combine neck lifts with facelifts.
A brow lift may be appropriate for you if you’re concerned about droopiness along the brow region. Drooping brows and eyelids can cause a person to appear older and less approachable. A brow lift rejuvenates the upper face, opening up the eye area and allowing the patient to appear younger and more revitalized.
A lip lift is a surgical procedure that reduces the distance between the top of the lip and the bottom of the nose. This space is known clinically as the “philtrum.” When the philtrum is strategically shortened, the lips appear more full, defined, and youthful. In addition, more of the upper central teeth will show when the mouth is open, but at rest (not smiling). It’s an effective way to achieve that much-coveted pout.
An eyelid surgery can produce improvements in function as well as aesthetics. Dr. Gaon may recommend eyelid surgery for you if you’re troubled by sagging skin on the upper eyelids, which may sometimes negatively affect vision. This procedure can also address bags under the eyes, fatty deposits (puffiness), drooping lower eyelids, and excess skin.
Structural Fat Grafting
Structural fat grafting, also known as fat injections or autologous fat injections, is the strategic transfer of fat from one area of the body to another. For example, Dr. Gaon may use structural fat grafting to perform breast reconstruction surgery or to restore lost volume to the face. Dr. Gaon will use liposuction to extract the fat from areas of the body where it is typically plentiful, such as the thighs, stomach, or buttocks.
Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most popular treatments we offer here at Gaon Plastic Surgery. It’s an effective way to address multiple areas of concern in just one treatment. This nonsurgical procedure can address wrinkles, age spots and other areas of hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. It can even help tighten sagging skin.
An otoplasty, or ear surgery, can adjust the shape, size, symmetry, and position of the ears. Whether your ears were misshapen because of a physical injury or they have had a congenital defect present since birth, an ear surgery can help you feel more confident about your appearance. This procedure is ideal for individuals who feel self-conscious about overly large or protruding ears, ears with irregular folds, and ears that are abnormally shaped.
Dr. Gaon often performs a tummy tuck as part of a mommy makeover but can also be performed as standalone procedure as well. This procedure involves tightening the abdominal wall, which can become loose after pregnancy and childbirth. It also involves the removal of excess fat and skin to create a streamlined, youthful silhouette. Note that individuals who have not been pregnant may also be good candidates for a tummy tuck, particularly if they have gone through significant weight loss.
Liposuction is the surgical removal of excess fat. Dr. Gaon can perform liposuction in many different areas, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, back, ankles, and arms, as well as under the chin. If you’re within a normal weight range for your height, but have stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for liposuction. Note that this procedure is not intended as a primary method of weight loss. Rather, it’s a body sculpting procedure.
Brazilian Butt Lift
If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of a flat, sagging, disproportionately small, or asymmetrical derriere, then a Brazilian butt lift may be appropriate for you. This popular plastic surgery involves harvesting fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, processing the fat, and then transferring it to the buttocks. The result is a pleasantly rounded, shapely rear.
Gynecomastia is a common condition that can affect males of virtually any age. It involves enlargement of the breast tissue, which may be caused by excess fat accumulation or excessive glandular tissue in the area. Dr. Gaon recommends that men with gynecomastia seek a medical evaluation to determine the cause of their condition, as enlarged breast tissue may rarely be a sign of a serious issue such as testicular cancer or drug addiction. In most cases, however, gynecomastia is the result of hormone changes, weight gain, or medications. Dr. Gaon can perform male breast reduction surgery to restore a man’s firm, flat chest.
Facelifts are becoming more popular among men, particularly those who are interested in looking younger at work or on the dating scene. A facelift can correct common areas of concern, such as loose, sagging skin, deep wrinkles, jowls at the jawline, and loss of volume in the cheeks. The result is a more vibrant, energetic appearance that allows men to navigate their professional and personal lives with confidence.
Liposuction & High Definition Liposculpture
Over time, the body no longer responds as well to exercise and diet. As a man’s hormone levels change, he is likely to find it difficult to rid himself of stubborn fat deposits in the abdomen, hips, thighs, back, arms, and neck. Dr. Gaon can perform liposuction to eliminate these problematic fat deposits and restore a more pleasing silhouette. Dr. Gaon is also pleased to offer High Definition Liposculpture, which uses plasma energy and radio frequency with a device called Renuvion to emulsify fat prior to removing it. High Def Liposculpture allows Dr. Gaon to create exceptional contours that define a highly toned physique.
Dermal injections are among our most popular offerings at the MedLounge. From Botox to a wide range of dermal fillers, Gaon Plastic Surgery provides FDA-approved cosmetic injectables designed to temporarily reverse wrinkles and restore lost volume to the face. In addition, we offer lip injections to allow our patients to achieve greater volume, as well as better shape and structure of the lips.
Laser skin resurfacing is a noninvasive procedure that improves the texture and appearance of the skin. This treatment is capable of addressing many types of imperfections, ranging from acne scars and sun spots to wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Laser skin resurfacing can even improve sagging skin, enlarged oil glands, and warts.

The MedLounge at Gaon Plastic Surgery connects patients to clinically proven skin care products. We are pleased to introduce the lineup of Skinbetter Science® skin care products, which are only available through authorized physician providers.

Take Their Word For It
“I had the great privilege to work with Dr. Mark Gaon in the surgical setting, as I am an operating room nurse with 25+ years of experience. I must say he is one of the best plastic surgeons I’ve witnessed in action. Not only with his knowledgeable surgical skill, but with the honest way he cares about his work and most importantly his patients. Trust me, this man will go the extra mile…
I am very greatful for what he has shown and taught me. I highly recommend this surgeon!”
“After my consultations with Dr. Gaon I quickly felt the comfort and trust you need to have with your doctor. He has a very straightforward, professional, and confident manner that really put me at ease and I knew that I was in good hands…
My surgery went very well and I am extremely pleased with the result! My posture has improved, I’m no longer having issues with neck and shoulder pain, and my upper back is now flat where there used to be that neck bump between my shoulders. I am very grateful for having found Dr. Gaon and being provided with the information about my reconstruction options. I would recommend Dr. Gaon to ANY FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER and trust that they are in the best possible care and I already have. It is not enough to say that he is a talented surgeon; he is a gifted artist (and a very sweet person).“
“Saw Dr. M. Gaon for my consult for implant removal, lift, and tummy tuck. Dr. Gaon was very professional and knowledgable. I felt very comfortable explaining my dilemma & results that I wanted…
He explained in depth everything I needed to know about my surgery. He took the time to answer my questions & concerns. He truly cares about his patients & listens. His staff is wonderful too. After four other consultations I am so glad I decided to see him. I have made my decision to go with Dr. Gaon.“
“Dr. Gaon performed breast reduction and facelift, both with great results. Dr. Mark Gaon is a gifted surgeon. I highly recommend him.“
“I am so grateful to have found this Doctor. I have keloids and he has been treating me for that and they have gone down extremely. Now I am ready for surgery and I know he will be on it…
I had gone to a different consultation and he was so negative about my keloids and never mentioned about injections. This Doctor was so confident and knew what he was talking about. God led me to the right direction I’m so blessed to have found him and can’t wait to see results. Thank you Dr. Gaon for being you. The staff he has are super friendly.“
“Just had a surgery by Dr. Gaon less than a week ago and I’m already stunned at the results. I’ve been to a lot of surgeons for consultations, but when I talked to Mark, he earned my trust through his knowledge and passion of what he does.. plus his staff is amazing.
Kara took care of the whole process and was so welcoming and made it fun! I was a little nervous going into surgery, and sure enough Eva (who’s a skin care goddess) pokes her head in my waiting room and said she was so excited for me, which totally helped relieve my anxiety. My anesthesiologist Julie was so kind and funny and I’ve never woke up from going under so well! This office has a great team, and I cannot wait to go back for my next pick me up! Thanks Dr. Gaon, wish there was more than five stars, you’ve completely surpassed expectations!“
“Dr. Mark Gaon is an amazing surgeon! After being diagnosed with breast cancer and having to make the hard decision to have a double mastectomy I couldn’t imagine that I’d ever be happy with my breasts again. Honestly all I cared about was that the cancer was removed. He did such an incredible job on the reconstruction that I actually am looking forward to summer and swimsuit season again.
Something I never imagined going into this! He is a true artist. He is also a perfectionist. He doesn’t oversell things which I appreciate. You can tell he wants the end result to be the very best it can be for his patients and that feels so good. Appointments have always gone smoothly and the office staff is very helpful when dealing with insurance. I have endless gratitude for my breast surgeon and Dr. Gaon for working together to make such a difficult time tolerable. I highly recommend Dr. Mark Gaon!“
