Doctor Scott Aaronson has been beautifying the desert for more than two decades. After he opened his practice in 1984, patients enthusiastically sought out the young doctor, entrusting him to restore their youth, beauty, and self confidence with procedures including face lifts, eye lifts, brow lifts, tummy tucks, breast procedures, laser resurfacing, and liposuction, using the most advanced technologies available.
To accommodate the needs of his growing practice, Dr. Aaronson built the Aaronson Plastic Surgery Center in 1998. This state-of-the-art outpatient plastic surgery facility was designed by renowned architect Nick Patel with every consideration given to patient comfort and excellence of care. At 6,000 square feet, it features two spacious operating rooms, several exam rooms, recovery areas for both acute and step-down recovery, a digital imaging room where patients can preview their anticipated results on the Mirror 2000 system, an aesthetician treatment room, and two overnight rooms for patients who require closer observation following surgery. “The center is designed to provide the highest level of care,” says Dr. Aaronson. “It is state licensed and Medicare certified, ensuring that it meets the standards required to provide overnight care and the same treatment found under hospital supervision.”
Throughout the past two decades, Dr. Aaronson has earned a reputation as one of the most skilled, educated, and gifted doctors in the region. For four consecutive years, this board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon has been named one of the area’s top plastic surgeons by New York-based Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., an independent firm commissioned by Palm Springs Life. For Dr. Aaronson, being named best in his field is a significant distinction in a region noteworthy for some of the country’s most acclaimed plastic surgeons. Dr. Aaronson graduated magna cum laude from the University of Miami Medical School. He served his general surgery residency at the University of California in Irvine and his plastic surgery residency at St. Joseph Hospital in Houston. He is a member of numerous nationally acclaimed associations, including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery.
Yet credentials tell only part of the story. Throughout the years, Palm Springs Life has published several interviews with Dr. Aaronson’s patients. Without exception, each has given glowing feedback about their experiences and results, noting Dr. Aaronson’s conservative approach, exemplary communications skills, and gentle bedside manner. “I’m pleased to be acknowledged for the care I extend to my patients,” says Dr. Aaronson. “I treat them as I would a member of my family or a very good friend. And while I consider myself to be a leader in the newest advances, I won’t perform any surgery until good results have been proven and documented. I don’t take risks.”
Today, in addition to traditional procedures, Dr. Aaronson offers less invasive treatments such as Botox, Restylane® and Perlane®, microdermabrasion, and intense light treatments to remove unwanted hair, broken blood vessels, and brown spots on the face and body. A variety of topical skin-care treatments to rejuvenate and improve the texture of the skin are also available.

Complimentary DVDs of the segments are available. To determine if plastic surgery is an option for you, please call for a consultation.
