Dr. Mark is a third-generation physician who understands the importance of working with patients to help them achieve their goals. As a son of a plastic surgeon, he gained an appreciation and passion for the art and science of surgery at an early age.

Dr. Mark grew up in Newport Beach and went to the Corona Del Mar high school. He earned his pre-med college degree at Stanford University in Palo Alto. He received his medical degree at Tulane University School of Medicine. He then completed a six-year residency in general surgery at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. His training was completed with a Plastic Surgery Fellowship at The Methodist Hospital in the prestigious Texas Medical Center in Houston.

Dr. Mark started his practice as one of only two plastic surgeons in the
rural Maryland. The work was difficult because he had to do everything accidents, work injuries, burns, hand injuries, reconstructive and cosmetic.
He did not mind because it provided him with unprecedented experience, honed his skill and gave him confidence

In 2011 Dr. Mark came back to California and started working for a corporate group focusing on breast reconstruction. At the same time, he
received training in the most refined procedures on the face by his father Dr. Avro Gaon, who practiced in the same medical plaza.

In March 2018 Dr. Mark decided to leave the corporate group and join his father in practice. This transition allowed Dr. Mark to focus on providing individualized care to his patients and giving them unmatched customer service. Being in the private practice also enabled him to utilize his acquired skills on elective cosmetic surgeries while still delivering unsurpassed results in breast reconstruction.

More than the freedom that he’s experiencing in handling his own practice, Dr. Mark Gaon’s motivation for this transition is his desire to continue his father’s legacy of providing uncompromised patient care and top-notch cosmetic surgery services. Now, he runs Gaon Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA alongside his father.
