Dr. Gaon was so straightforward, confident and professional and gave me everything I needed to make an informed decision. After learning about the possible effects of the lumpectomy and radiation, it was clear to me that I needed to opt for the reconstruction as well. I felt I was in good hands.

Dr. Mark Gaon received his bachelor of sciences in Biology from Stanford University and his medical degree from Tulane University. He then trained in General Surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Dr. Gaon finalized his training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at The Methodist Hospital at the world-renowned Texas Medical Center in Houston.
As a third-generation physician, and a second-generation plastic surgeon, Dr. Gaon developed a passion for the art and science of surgery at a young age. Dr. Gaon strives to stay on the forefront of advanced techniques in plastic surgery. This enables him to provide superior, long-lasting results, with less invasive techniques, and with minimal downtime. His training at the largest medical center in the world allowed him to draw on the knowledge of more than 40 plastic surgery mentors.
After his fellowship, Dr. Gaon entered private medical practice in the Washington D.C. area. During his early years in practice Dr. Gaon found particular interest in treating patients diagnosed with breast cancer. Frustrated by the fact that the majority of women diagnosed with breast cancer were unaware of the availability and process of breast reconstruction, Dr. Gaon began to focus on educating women in the community about their options. He created an educational network for patients through the regional medical center and educated local practitioners about the benefits of immediate reconstruction after mastectomy and oncoplastic surgery after a lumpectomy.
This early interest developed into a passion, and ultimately led Dr. Gaon to join Breastlink in July 2013. Dr. Gaon is a native of Orange County.
With a calm and composed demeanor, Dr. Gaon is able to effectively treat the vast variety of challenges that are presented to him in the diverse field of plastic and reconstructive surgery.
